Chumby and UPnP: Sorry!

A few of my friends asked about this, so it may be interesting (and partly disappointing) for you as well: the Chumby (One or Classic, does not matter) does not (yet) support UPnP music sources.

According to their blog, it is under development, but has been for more than a year now without any news.

You can, however, mount CIFS/Samba servers, so that the Chumby “thinks” the files were coming from a USB stick. This works fine, unless you have too many files on your device. Tests showed that more than a couple hundred files will freeze the Chumby.
