I'm having the same troubles. I have a Sony Bluray player (BDV E880) connected in my network. I can see the Cloudstation in the network on my bluray player and acces and navigate through the folders. In the folders i see all the media (foto's, music and video) but when i try to play/acces it it doesn't display it.

 

I tried enabling the stream photo/video/music to PS3 and XBOX fuction, even tried transcoding media.. 

 

What am i doing wrong? is there something i missed?

Everywhere i could buy a Cloudstation i see it is DLNA certified so my hopes are still ok!

 

Who could help me? Thanks 

 

if you need any other info about my setup please ask

Hoi Axe,

 

Sorry for the late response. My Samsung TV finds the Cloudstation and i can see all the files. When I try to stream the movie or audio through my TV or audiostreamer, I get the warning "File could not be openend". I even restored my Cloudstation to factory defaults, but stil the same warning.

 

Kind Regards

JJ

Got a  same problem. I bought this drive only because it is described as a DNLA-certified. I cannot play videos on my Samsung TV. Can somebody from Buffalo solve this problem?

OK... Maybe I'm blind or I'm fool... Or I'm crazy....
Or maybe my english is too-far-from-perfect to translate it right...
Did you see this label on the box?

oh great so lets start a new "business", we sell watches which are on the box declared as real gold. In real it is just cheap plastic painted with golden color.

If customer complains that he paid for real gold instead of plastic let us just tell him, "sorry it is a mistake on the box - bad luck for you that you paid for real gold" ....

 

Nice way to become rich by cheating.

I buy My Buffalo Cloudstation Pro Duo 4Gb at this week. First thing what I tested after installation, copying my music and pictures to the device is how I can now easily listen music trough my tv with wired network. (My computerstuff are opposite side of house than my HiFi-system) Well, I can see pogoplug: CS-WV1DE-device at my tv and all music albums are listed, but when I tried to listen them my Sony says: Folder is empty. I can listen my music from my computer. But I wanted that I can access to my music-library all the time, even when my computer is not turned on. Not worked. My salvation at this case is that I have XBOX360 too. With XBOX360 all works fine. But using it for music somehow complicated. I hope they get dlna working as there mentioned quite clearly at package.

I'm was not wise enough to read these support-forums before I buy this device. And maybe ever come here if all has worked as I expected. But my world not ending here. I'm still very excited about this storage. I think I make good buy. I get optical fibre and speedy connection to the internet very soon. Hope to see pogolug-program for Meego (N9) some day...

Big picture there: Package back-cover

Actually in finnish-language-section there is no mention about dlna-compability, but everywhere else it is.

Access your Cloudstation through SMB share if your Sony is able to do this. 

 

Buffalo was not able to include a fully functional DLNA compatible mediaserver / streaming server like e.g. Twonky. even they advertised it as DLNA certified on product package!

My Sony KDL-40EX503 can't show any media from CS-WV1DE Pgoplug drive. I can see folders, but Sony says there's nothing to see. No big problem because I have Xbox360. Not everyone has PS3 or Xbox360. Someone else could be very disappointed.
