a BIG!! thanks to support DLNA renderer mode in the new software version (14.XX). It is working but i found a bug:
The render (SoundTouch) will only play exact one song, after playing the song the next song will only start if i am pressing the next or play button of my dlna controller app.
The sound touch is the only device in my home with this issue, all other will play the next song in the playlist/album
I used the BubbleUPnP for DLNA/Chromecast app from the android playstore as a DLNA controller.

Yes I too like the DLNA support, and yes, I too found the same problem with BubbleUpnp player. Not sure where the problem lies. The mconnect player will play track after track, but the that player has its' own problem - stops after a number of tracks with an error message. I do have an iPod touch 4g, that runs an old version of mconnect player. That seems to run satisfactorily. (I do like the UI of latest version of mconnect, if only it can work normally)
Since SoundTouch is not advertised as supporting DLNA, is it just work in progress?

Thanks for the post! When you are playing music, are you choosing a specific song, or are you choosing an entire album/playlist to play? After you play the next song, will it continue to play without issue or do you have to press play for every track?
- I tested with albums and playlists.
- I tested with different DLNA-Server sources (the local one form Bubble and mini DLNA)
- I tested with different DLNA Tweaks like gapless play
All the same. This issue is for every track in album and playlist
Thank you for clarifying. Although DLNA streaming isn't officially supported, it is very valuable to know what is working and what is not. I will pass this feedback on to our development team.
i think it was a big step in the right direction that Bose begins to support DLNA media renderer. Everyone can use it's favorite app, great. Its look like a small step to bring this feature to a very useful thing.
I will test the DLNA renderer support for your next releases and post my result

Thank you for the post. I'll let the team know that this is also happening with Fritz. If they're looking for logs, we will reach out.
