Currently devices are listed by IP address, and profile assignment are recorded using this reference.
However in many cases devices IP adress are delivered by DHCP, and therefore changing overtime: this makes status list grow overtime, and profile assignment complex, unless one gets into router setup to change DHCP addressing.
Wouldn't it make sense to rather have Serviio identify devices by their MAC address, which is a better indication of the actual physical device?
This would remove dependency on router DHCP setup, and make profile assignment more straightforward.
IP could eventually be displayed as an information after refresh, but won't be the key to reference profile assignment.
Great if we could also assign a plain name for that device, once internally referenced by MAC address.
Thanks for comment.
