1) Did you setup custom DLNA profiles for these devices? If you setup custom sharing the main sharing settings are ignored.

2) Yes, you should ask different questions in different topics in their appropriate forums. In this case you'll need to capture a debug log (step 4b) and send it to support: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... ?f=21&t=69

3) There's already a topic on this: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... 21&t=75230

EXPOSITION: I recently decided to abandon a long relationship with iPods in favor of using Android (specifically hoping to purchase a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy S5) as my primary portable mp3 player. I hope to use this device and MMA to rate tracks from my MMW library. While testing this setup with my Samsung Galaxy Blaze and the MMA app (beta), I used the UPnP feature to hook the phone up with my MMW library, mainly because this phone has minimal internal storage and my research shows that MMW does not sync well with external storage on Samsung Galaxy phones. Before I continue, please understand I have searched this forum and Google extensively to find an answer but could not.
QUESTIONS:
1. Is it possible to rate tracks on a Galaxy while using UPnP? I've tried accessing properties and simply tapping the artwork to make ratings appear, but I can't seem to change that rating.
2. Is it possible to use MMA to rate tracks on a Galaxy at all? If not, is there another Android app that would?
3. Is there a phone/mp3 player out there that would better serve my purposes (rating tracks from my MMW library on a portable device, whether syncing is required or not) than a Galaxy? Considering my eternal struggles with Apple (switching to MMW from the snail's pace of iTunes, then realizing that Apple coding makes it VERY difficult for MMW to sync tracks on iPods with ios 7 or newer), an iPhone is not an option.
Thank you for your attention.

1) No, UPnP/DLNA does not support tagging.
2) Files synced from MMW to MMA can be edited and the edits can be synced back to MMW.
3) Any Android (I believe running Android 2.3 and up) should do the trick.

Muchas gracias for the helpful reply, Lowlander. One last concern:
Do MMW and MMA still have problems syncing to an SD card on a Galaxy? I'm looking for more storage to upload more music (preferably more than 64GB, SD cards can expand them up to 128GB) to the phone. If there are still problems here, do you have a recommendation for an Android phone that supports MMW to MMA syncing that has a ton of storage (not a fan of storing in the cloud).

There are issues with Android 4.4 and SD cards due to access restrictions Google put into place. However the team is hard at work at resolving any of these issues and you may find the latest betas of MMA and MMW do the trick if you're using Android 4.4. There shouldn't be any issues for those on older versions of Android.
