I have several dlna compatible products that see Vulkano recorded TV folder (which is great), but recognize the recorded video as audio only file. Is it a bug of the firmware?

I'll bet though if you take that hard drive formattted as EXT3 that you had atttached to your Vullkano and plug into a USB port on a PC running Linux (Ubuntu in my case), the .MP4 files when cllicked on will play both video and audio with a media player like VLC.  I believe this worked for me when I was doing my initial testing.  What "compatible products" have you been testing? - Craig

Yes, you are correct – the file plays well when played not via dlna or upnp. I was using Patriot Box Office and Logitech Revue to play it, and both of them do not recognize this as a video file over the dlna. I have no doubt that it is a bug that is easily fixable!
