I don't know UMS but I might take a look myself. It's possible that I 
misunderstand with regard to UMS as I know nothing about it, but on 
every UPnP/DLNA set up I've used (not many!) your renderer (VLC or TV) 
should find the media server, rather than a media server finding the 
renderer. I suppose there's nothing stopping a media server looking for 
renderers, but I've not come across that before. Just making sure your 
understanding is the right way round.

If the renderer isn't capable of finding a media server (Chromecast 
can't for example) you need to use something like Bubble or MediaHouse 
that finds both and sends the media from one to the other.

Final thought, your TV does support DNLA, right?
