DNLA media server with Home Hub 4

Hi - I've just switched to using the Home Hub that BT sent me and I can't seem to set it up as a media server. My old TP-Link router had an option to do this once a USB drive is plugged in. You could select which folders to share.

I plugged a USB drive into the Home Hub and I can see this as a network drive. Unfortunately, my Samsung Smart TV doesn't see anything. It used to see 'Media Server' and pick up my videos and music.

 

Any suggestions? I have UPnP enabled on the Home Hub, but I can't see any other settings that might help.

Welcome to this user forum.

 

Do you still have your old TP-Link router? If you are on ADSL, there is nothing to stop you using it.

 

The USB port on the home hub is of very limited use.

The USB port is mapped as SMB which many devices do not recognise.

Sorry for being think, but does that mean the home hub can't act as DNLA server?
