    I am trying to get a 3 year old combination of IQaudIO DAC+ and IQaudIO
    Pi-AMP on Raspberry Pi 3 Model 3 Model B+ that has just been sitting in
    a box working with Max2Play. I can get audio output using the
    Squeezebox method through the IQaudIO Pi-AMP but can not seem to make a
    connection using the DLNA/gmediarender path. I have tried using
    Jamcast and Steam What You Hear apps on my Windows 10 pc. I can stream
    from the pc to stereo receivers that support DLNA with no problem. Like
    a Yamaha R-N500. The Max2Play shows the DLNA client is running. The
    only setting I see is selecting the audio output which I have set the
    same as I have for Squeezelite. The Pi does show up as an available
    device that can be streamed to in both Jamcast and Steam What You Hear
    but when selected does not indicate a connection was actually made. I
    would like to get the stream what you hear/DLNA method to work so I can
    keep using my favorite audio players like MediaMonkey and Winamp and
    also keep playing large audio files.
    If you have any suggestions or questions, please let me know.

    Hi Gus,

    It looks like the gmediarenderer is currently not compatible with services like SWYH without further ado. The problem has already been addressed by someone here:

    Here is the discussion with the developer of the renderer:

    Please make sure all other players are stopped and then try again. You could also try a DLNA app for your cell phone and make sure that the problem is not caused by the services you are using. Please also test the DLNA plugin for the Squeezebox server. This allows you to turn the Squeezelite Player on the device into a DLNA player.

    Thanks MarioM for taking the time to reply.
    For the time being, the Squeezelite-Max2Play pipe is good enough. Hope to investigate getting some sort of DLNA pipe to work when have more time.
