Summary0018410: MM5 DLNA exporting disabled sub-nodes
DescriptionMM4 DLNA media sharing seemed more efficient and useful than MM5
If I shared a MM4 Collection to my TV, the TV only shows indices for sub-nodes that I had enabled in my MM5 Collection.
In MM5 the TV UI shows ALL sub-nodes ... ie ignores whether or not I have enabled sub-nodes in MM5.

This makes the UI inside the TV messy, but won't it also over tax the limited resources inside a TV?
I tried a large collection, and it broke the TV mechanism ... ie. unable to browse or queue Media inside the TV.
nb. I haven't tried to see whether there is a significant difference to the size of the library that can effectively be served to the TV, but am assuming that there is a difference.

MM4 also allowed me to disable row columns at the Collection level. I presume this change further bloats the data sent to the TV. .. Does it?

Why was this done?

Steps To Reproduce1) Create a MM% collection, and enable minimal number of sub-nodes
2) Share collection via DLNA
3) Browse to MM server in the TV
4) ==> All sub-nodes are available via the TV UI
5) If the collection is large, the TV cannot browse the MM Server

TagsNo tags attached.

This is currently planned for 5.0.3 and tracked at 0018137.

OK, but a heads up re deferral to 5.0.3
I tested MM5 in comparison to MM4:
MM4: shared a Collection with 46+k tracks, configured collection to have minimal sub-nodes and columns
==> fully function in the TV ... can browse, can play music, and can see artwork in TV
MM5: same Collection with same configuration (except columns, as n/a in MM5)
==> is broken in TV ... no browsing, no playing,, nothing except error message ("Too much content on this device to list it all")

Thanks for the heads up. We're aware, but the associated effort/risk mean that it's unlikely we can fit this into 5.0.2.
