I update to 2647_1.0.0t but miniDLNA button not appears, why?

What MiniDLNA-Button? There is no extra button in the toolbar to access e.g. an additional web interface. There should be only the normal web interface configuration page at ServiceManager → Multimedia. If there is no configuration page, please upgrade again.

At ServiceManager → Multimedia not appears MiniDLNA configuration page. I upgrade again and tell you. Thanks.

Do I need to build the mini-dlna database, or will it be ready to go. I have been looking for a good FAQ and cannot seem to find anything. When I use Mini-DLNA on XBMC, I am not seeing any files in the directories.

Do you know of a good website with instructions on what do do after enabling the Min-DLNA service?
