Refresh Status Screen

Post by Dypsis » Mon Oct 16, 2017 6:39 pm

Is there a way to refresh the Status screen without having to click Quit and then reopen Universal Media Server?

The status screen is always updated, so there's no need for a refresh. If UMS finds a device, it's shown there immediately.

But old devices are not removed.

They are if UMS is aware that they are gone. It can take some time before they disappear, but that isn't because the window isn't refreshed.

I have lots of devices on my network, and my computer stays on for days at a time, and UMS never removes offline devices and they just build up more and more.
So I am forced click Quit and then reopen Universal Media Server. That removes them.

Then there's some bug/error at play. Please post debug files if you want anyone to look for problems.
