I've got the same issue with my Buffalo Network hard Disk.
First look at this : http://wiki.serviio.org/doku.php?id=serviio_console_explained
The first time after install : Enable "automatic library update" and enable "arrow" for each folder.
Then when library is build, uncheck "arrow" on folders then save.
When you add new media on a folder, open console, check the arrow for this folder then Save. Library will be updated (check on status button), then uncheck the "arrow", save and close console.
When the NAS will be power-off, folders "unchecked" will be not scanned.

...... but i have to scroll ALL the way down pass the vast ever-growing bloatware apps
I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiment, perhaps they could a DLNA menu option from the top bar.
In the mean time found you can scroll UP to wrap to the bottom of the list on my LX900.
Well version 1.1 has certainly helped on most of my jpeg's (scanned pictures and Photoshop editings), but there is still some jpeg pictures that isn't possible to view yet. I get two different kind of error messages now on these remaining jpeg's. The old (and now I am translating into English, so it is not accurate) "the picture cannot be viewed" and a new one "the server is not accessible"- where the last one is not a correct error statement.
Any way I can get the Tv to recognise the individual albums from my iMac. At the moment it doesnt and I have to view the pictures by month to find them easily. Thx
Do you mean all the Titles, Movies, Series etc? If so you can turn them off
by going to the Presentation tab on the Homestream/Serviio console.
I was using Serviio but have now installed Homestream onto my PC. Are they different under the bonnet? Interestingly Homestream lists my TV as "Bravia" but Serviio (v 1.0.1) lists it as "Sony Bravia TV(2012)" but both show the name as KDL-46HX753.
The problem I have is that I had trouble with Serviio so decided to see if Homestream worked any better. Now, Homestream (and Serviio before) can see my TV no problem but my TV has trouble seeing Homestream (and previously Serviio). It was intermittent and the Serviio on my PC is listed four times on the PC, and twice for my laptop. So I have two questions:
1. Is there any way of deleting the unwanted Serviio (and I have a Plex from earlier) devices? I cannot find any way to remove them and it is so annoying having to scroll through them all.
2. Why am I having trouble seeing the Homestream server? I am running over Wi-Fi on an O2 Wireless Box II (made by Thomson)? Should I go for a wired connection?
1. Your remote has a button called OPTIONS you might wanna try pressing that when looking at all your dlna devices ;) There you can clean the list and update or delete them all.
2. Try a LAn connection with cable, It could be your router is the culprit here ;)
If your router or WIFI access point assigns different ip addresses to your PC on your home network when you boot from case to case, Homestream will appear multiple times. Only use one server.
If you use several units on WIFI remember having intra-BSS trafic enabled.on your WIFI access point (AP).
I am also experiencing missing access some times and have to try multiple times to gain access without any obvious malfunction (it's like something in the connection goes to sleep) . In general I'm happy with Homestream and when streaming it is very rare that I have problems.
I hope someone is still looking at this thread?
I seem to be having an issue with Homestream, my KDL40HX753 works fine with it over a wireless connection, and then out of the blue a couple of times I have gone to stream some movie files and Homestream is shown as disconnected on the TV. Mad dash upstairs to the PC and the Homestream console shows my bravia is connected. Pressing the refresh button does not seem to do anything. I have then to restart the PC for the TV to show a connected status.

Could it be that the router is timing out? Could of threads on Serviio suggested similar issues were caused by this. Not something I've come across before though
Thanks for the reply Catmambo. That being the case, I would have expected it occour on a regular basis. But as its only happened two maybe three times since I installed Homestream and the TV last month.
There is a power reduction option on the router but this is disabled. I have not checked the TV settings to see if there is a timeout option, would be surprised if there was any though.
Have you managed to stream anything via Serviio wirelessly? Is your PC hard wired to your hub? I have found that, in my experience, the PC's Wifi isn't 'man' enough to push the data from it to the hub, then to the TV. In my case I am using home plugs, as per my guide here; https://www.sony.co.uk/discussions/message/714067
Slightly different set-up to your wireless TV from the hub but I suspect this issue is the PC hub connection.
Let us know how you get on.
+1 To Bernie's answer. Streaming is always more robust over hard wired (Ethernet/Homeplug/Powerline)
Always a good deal on them for under £30 at one retailer - see below link for the latest.
Hope this helps
Thanks Bernie. The main PC is hardwired to the modem/router, and the TV is just another wireless device thats connected to that modem. I have a theory that the problem happens when the modem drops/loses sync. This seems to happen periodicly and I am starting to think it may be related. So I'm going to keep an eye on that.
I do like your idea of the homeplug gadgets, never even thought about using them. But that said, I dont really have any problems streaming media to the TV, be it stored on PC or web based.
Are you trying to stream HD films/content? I have found that over my wired system, using home plugs rated at 85 Mps, HD files are too large to stream smoothly and stutter. May be this is the issue as it appears to be intermittent with selected media.
The Sony USB Wireless LAN Adaptor UWA-BR100 has a 54 Mbps Transmission Speed.
I suspect the transmission speed is the cause of your problems when streaming high bandwidth files.
