I’m trying to connect my Panasonic TV to the Emby server which is running on an iMac with macOS Catalina. Despite following the installation instruction I’m not succeeding and I don’t know why.
My set-up has both the TV and the iMac on the same network running on 5GHz. I’ve tried moving them both to 2.4 GHz but it makes no difference. The TV is using a fixed IP address and I've added this address to the White List.
From the iMac I can see the TV on the network and the Firewall is open.
The TV DLNA settings recognises the MAC address of the iMac and is permitted to access that address. The TV DLNA also has permission to access locally a Denon amplifier and Sonos speaker. When I start the Media Server on the TV it displays both the Denon and Sonos but not the TV.
I've also noted that if I close the Emby server on the iMac I cannot restart it again without rebooting the iMac. I guess I've made a mistake somewhere as this behaviour can't be standard.
The logs don’t mean a great deal to me but I’d really appreciate it if someone could take a look and see if there’s anything obvious that I’ve missed.
