RMP crashes DLNA servers constantly

RMP on my Roku 3 and TCL 65S403 (system v8.1 for both) crash the DLNA servers(mediatomb and dlink) the same way:
(1) after playing one video for about 30 min, it loses connection to the servers. I see the servers on the NAS are dead. Once I restart the NAS, RMP can work again for another 30 min.
(2) forwarding a few times also makes the servers crash right away.
(3) switching videos also crashes the servers right away.

My fire tv and xbox work very well with these servers. So I am totally confused. Any input is appreciated.

Re: RMP crashes DLNA servers constantly

I've tried MediaTomb, and wasn't impressed with it. I use RMP daily with my Serviio DLNA server without issue. The wife will use it for hours with no disconnects on our Insignia Roku TV. Unsure if there's a new version of RMP that might help your issue. You might try reaching out to RokuDale. He's responsible for RMP.

Thanks, atc98092.  Is Serviio hardware demanding? My NAS has 512M RAM and single-core 800M Hz CPU, and I do not even have Java installed.

I don't know if Java is required for operation on a NAS, or if it's only used for user interface stuff. But I do know that Java is required for a computer install, so it's possible there. However, Serviio NAS versions are created by 3rd parties, not the Serviio developer himself, and there aren't too many NAS versions available. As far as hardware, as long as your media doesn't require transcoding, I see very little CPU demand on my computer installations. Transcoding of course is a completely different situation, and your NAS probably doesn't have the power to do it well.
