I have an (older) B&W Zeppelin Air (the 30 pin model), which is connected to my network. It is clearly recognized as Multimedia device. I can use it from my Windows Laptop, where it is listed as "Multimedia" device under "Network". I can also use AirPlay functionality from my iPhone on the OS level. However, I've been fiddeling around with it for hours now, but it will not show up in the PlayTo lists, which are embedded within Emby. It neither shows up when I access my Emby Server via the web-interface, nor from within the Emby App on my iPhone. Any hints how I can fix this?

Hi, can you try restarting the Zeppelin while emby server is running? Please see if that helps. Thanks .

Thanks for your quick response. Tried it, but no luck. Checked the log file looking for the Zeppelin's IP address to appear. Nothing...

I tried connecting the Zeppelin via LAN, instead of WLAN. No difference. Still cannot PlayTo it from within Emby...

Hmh, I've bought it 2012ish. But it is supposed to be Apple AirPlay compatible. Here the link to it's specs from the B&W US website:

Not an answer I was hoping for, but an answer. Thanks for your time and effort to clarify, Luke!

 

I was considering to upgrade to a more recent Zeppelin Wireless, but it seems it is still not supporting DNLA, just AirPlay. Crikey...   :-S
