I have never heard or seen any problems but the 'isn't a valid object' is interesting. I have never been able to trace what action causes this. My server is running on a QNAP TS251 - fully up to date.

Any thoughts...?
This means that the control point is out of sync with the server and has sent the server a request for a UPnP object ID that no longer exists on the server. Which control point are you using?
I am mostly using Linn Kazoo. I also use Plugplayer to play on my phone.

So this is a browsing error? I will keep an eye on the logs to see if I can identify the cause.

As I say it does not seem to cause any real problems - I would not know about it unless I looked at the log.

Thanks Simon,

Yes, it is caused by a control point detecting a MinimServer restart and sending a browse request for something that no longer exists. I would be interested to know which control point is running when you get the message. No harm is done because MinimServer detects and rejects the incorrect request.
