Resetting media streaming

The HP Pocket Playlist scans your stored media files to create a database. The reset function deletes
this database and rebuilds it without deleting your data. Resetting may take a long time depending on
the number of multimedia files.
To reset media streaming:
1.
Open the Settings window. For more information about accessing Settings, see
settings from your computer on page
2.
Under Maintenance, click Rebuild DLNA Database.
Connecting to HP Pocket Playlist from a Linux system
(advanced topic)
This topic provides general guidelines for accessing the folders and configuration screens on HP
Pocket Playlist from a Linux system. The steps to configure a Linux system for connection to the HP
Pocket Playlist may vary.

Connecting to HP Pocket Playlist using Samba

Samba lets you connect a Linux computer to the HP Pocket Playlist using the SMB (server Message
Block) and CIFS (Common Internet File System) protocols.
To use Samba, the Linux system must have Samba installed. For information about how to install
Samba, see the documentation or man pages included with the Linux distribution.

Connecting to HP Pocket Playlist using a Linux graphical interface

General steps for connection include using a network browser to find the device.
NOTE:
If a firewall is running, turn it off or configure the system to allow Samba to connect to the
SMB Shares.
The path to the device is as follows:
Domain - Windows Network
Workgroup - WORKGROUP
Machines - PocketPlaylist
If any of these default names have changed, use the new name.

Connecting to HP Pocket Playlist using NetBIOS name

Connecting to the device requires either the device's IP address or NetBIOS name. The advantage of
using the NetBIOS name is that even if the device's IP address changes, the Linux system can find
the device.
You can find the IP address for the device on the router's configuration screens, usually under DHCP
Client Table or Show Connected Devices.

Connecting to HP Pocket Playlist using Samba command lines

The method described here is not persistent. To have the Linux system automatically connect to the
device every time it is rebooted, see the documentation or man pages for the Linux distribution.
