my brother gave me his MM gold licebse as he switched to apple.

so i tried for 4 hours today to setup MM as server for my new bravia XE9305 TV.
the TV is kind of seeing the MM files.. but when i delete files on teh PC there is no way (no way i found) to make the TV recognizing the changes.
e
i don´t kwow why this wont work.
it works fine with windows media player server, the musicbee mediaserver and some other media servers i have tried.

how do i have to setup MM so that when i delete or rename files on the PC these changes are send to the TV?

this is paid software and it works worse then freeware apps for me.

Are you deleting the files outside of MediaMonkey? In that case you need to update the library too. You can find the files in the Files to Edit > Dead Links sub-node in the Media Tree.

In the future either use MediaMonkey to delete the files or enable Folder Monitoring (Gold feature) to automatically see changes: http://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index.p ... he_Library

yes outside from MM but i did refresh it a few times and it´s gone on the server side but the files are still visible on the TV.
folder monitoring is set to startup and permanent monitoring already.

the problem is not on the server side. it´s that the TV is not refreshed with the new information.
it´s like MM server is not sending the updated library to the TV.

i use the "video" app on the sony TV.
works fine with MS media player server and musicbee.

Are you saying that the files have disappeared from MediaMonkey itself too, but not when seen by the Sony TV? It looks like the Sony TV is using a cached version instead of asking the server for a new list.

Do you have any other DLNA clients to test with?

Have you tried to Sideload MMA onto XE9305 ? From what I read it is Android TV with Marshmallow or in worst case Lollipop?

If you need help just let me know I've sideload a number of apps on various devices (Android TV included) by using ES File Explorer and shared folder on local PC.

I meant clients, not servers.
