I am running latest alpine linux on wd mycloud. My minidlna version is 1.2.0-r0. The server works but it is not detected by my Panasonic TV or other dlna clients. I can detect it running from web-browser on port8200. The issue is exactly similar to

https://sourceforge.net/p/minidlna/discussion/879957/thread/d411e126/

My TV occasionally detects the dlna server for few seconds only. So I can just glimpse the name Minidlna on TV screen.

Is it possible to downgrade Minidlna to previous version, as the issue is probably seen with only newer versions?

EDIT: downgraded minidlna to 1.1.5-r3, along with setting "inotify_interval=10", now dlna clients can detect minidlna server.
I think minissdpd can be a better solution but it fails to start, complaining about interface, (either not configured or not up or not found in openrc-run depending on confuguration option I choose) Any idea?

It appears that issue is with multicast traffic. I am no expert, so I don't know where the issue is. Probably multicast traffic is stopped between bond0 and eth0.

This was kernel issue, indeed. I tried with older v3 kernel and minidlna was working fine. More detials here
