Sony Xperia Z1, Music Unlimited and Throw

Hello,

 

I have a Sony Xperia Z1, a Sony Bravia KDL-40EX721 and a Sony Bluray BDV-N590.

 

While using the Walkman app with Music Unlimited, i'm trying to use Throw to DLNA the music to my TV or Bluray and it's not working. It says something like "Error could not show media contents".

 

If the Throw option is available in the Walkman app with Music Unlimited, why is it not working? Do i have to configure anything?

 

Throw works with the contents stored on my phone (images, music and videos) but it doesn't with the Music Unlimited audio.

 

Is there a fix for this?

 

Thanks.

I got more information and unfortunately you can't use Throw over DLNA for Music Unlimited.

Go onto Sony Entertainment Network and ensure the Music Unlimited is activated and registered for your TV etc

 

This activation can be found under 'Manage Premium Services'

 

You will get an activation code for your Bravia TV - type this in at the prompt and and it should all work .

The same goes for Movies Unlimited (plus Netflix / LoveFilm etc)

Re: Sony Xperia Z1, Music Unlimited and Throw

My Bravia is registered with Music Unlimited, as well as my Bluray Player.

Still i get the "Error could not show media contents".

 

It works with the TV app, the Bluray app, but i can't "Throw" from the phone.

 

I'm wondering what's the point of having that option if it doesn't work.

It's a pity, because without the DLNA i really don't see any added value over Spotify and will probably stick to my subscription with them.

 

Thank you anyway for your great support and interest in solving my question.

throw music to my car

I have my Z1 hooked up to my car (ford s-max) but for some reason why I try to throw music from the Walkman app (where I have Sony unlimited) it fails and says it wasn't possible.

I can't figure out why?? Can anyone help?
