minidlna on slackware and em7080

Can not tell if the issue i am facing is due to slackware, minidlna or the Emninent em7080.

I have installed slackware 14.0 64-bit version and from slackbuilds the accompanying minidlna.
My dlna server is not always available on the em7080.
I have opened port ssdp/1900 and trivnet1/8200.
No success.

I saw this issue with older versions of both slackware and minidlna too.

any suggestions ??

What do you mean exactly? I use minidlna on -current and have for about 6 months. I wrote a very amateurish script that actually kills the program and deletes the database before relaunching because the database wouldn't update no matter what, but rebuilds it just fine every time. I never Have a problem with my xbox seeing the minidlna server on the LAN. There is a static source versus the dynamically linked version available and I used makepkg to create a slackware package with it since it wouldn't build against the newer ffmpeg I have installed.

kill `pidof minidlna`
rm /var/cache/minidlna/files.db
sleep 5
echo "minidlna now started"
