works fine, except for the disconnects

I have had serviio running for a couple of years now, through a few version updates, and it works well, when it works.
An ongoing problem has been that it will disconnect from devices (primarily my Yamaha RX-V3900 receiver) after a random period of from 1 to 5 minutes (about 1/2 a song). I now have several servers running (Plex, mezzmo, Emby, and Serviio) , trying to get ONE to work properly, and only Serviio has this particular problem. Mezzmo and Emby don't exhibit this problem, and Plex just doesn't work at all.
I have tried every setting I can find to no avail. I must conclude there is some activity timer that is disconnecting my device after its buffer is full and it stops receiving data for a length of time.
I'm trying to find some server that will "do it all", and have not.
Until recently, Serviio was the only one I knew of that would support all my devices (the yamaha, a samsung TV, and a Vizio TV without too many issues. Vizio TV's have about the worst DLNA implentation I've ever seen, but that's another story.
I must reluctantly give up Serviio in favor of Mezzmo (the only other one that works), at least until this problem is caught and corrected.

Keep up the good work!
I'll keep an eye on the forums for a possible answer.

Re: works fine, except for the disconnects

Just a suggestion:
Try to update external jar files (serviio/lib) [to () ones, just replace with same name]:
httpclient-cache.jar (http://central.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/httpcomponents/httpclient-cache/4.5.3/httpclient-cache-4.5.3.jar)
httpclient.jar (http://central.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/httpcomponents/httpclient/4.5.3/httpclient-4.5.3.jar)
httpcore.jar (http://central.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/httpcomponents/httpcore/4.4.6/httpcore-4.4.6.jar)

Also set -Dserviio.socketBuffer=262143 (and try as option -Dserviio.useNetworkTOS=true, depends on your HW) to java options.

I did it and network lags decreased and performance increased considerably.

PS: The fact is that I updated other external libs also, and derby, and everything is working better)


Edit: Serviio version 1.9 by all means!
