use soundtouch300 as DLNA receiver

I would like to be able to cast music to the speaker, but when I connect to it, I cannot hear anything.
I'm using DLNA and I connect successfully as the speaker does turn on when I do so.
Lastly, I have tested my app with another DLNA and it works fine.
Does it support this?

Thanks
Ron

From my experience, it has some limitted, unofficial support for working as a DLNA receiver.  Most DLNA/uPnP broadcasters can see the SoundTouch devices on the network, but getting them to be able to initiate playback on SoundTouch is hit and miss, mostly miss.  The app that I've had the most luck with is mConnect (and its free version, mConnect Lite) which is available on Apple and Android.
