Making my own conf for aktimate speakers

Postby ganjaman » Thu May 23, 2013 8:29 am

Hello to all!

Since my aktive desktop speakers http://www.aktimate.com.au/ (Aktimate Maxi) with streaming option are not recognized by PSM, i decided, to make my own config.
Beeing a noob in such things, i want to ask you for your help.

When i trieded to connect to the PSM there was the entry: Media renderer was not recognized. Possible identifying HTTP Headers: User-Agent: Reciva UPnP/1.0 , Radio/1.0, DLNADOC/1.50

So i used the config from the yamahaxv671 as a base to modify it.
First of all i want you the specifications of my speakers and what file formats they are playing:

So i made my config file like this:

# Universal Media Server renderer profile for Aktimate Maxi
# Refer to PS3.conf for help

RendererName=Aktimate Maxi
RendererIcon=yamaharxv671.png
UserAgentSearch=Reciva UPnP/1.0
UserAgentAdditionalHeader=Radio/1.0
Video=false
Audio=true
Image=false
SeekByTime=true
TranscodeAudioTo441kHz = false
StreamExtensions = wav, flac, mp3, wma, aac, spro, cook, atrc, raac, he-aac, aiff, au, ogg
TranscodeAudio=MP3
TranscodeExtensions=

So i have i few questions:
1) Does this look about right, or is there anything i have forgotten to add or delate?
2) How can i modify the Renderer Icon? Is there any way that i can make a Aktimate Maxi Icon instead of the yamaha icon to show in PSM?

Thanks a lot for your help and afford

Ok, i figured it out by myself! Everything is working like it should and the PMS recognizes my aktimates.
And the costum icon of the maxis look great!
Another renderer that works great with PMS!!
