LG 42LM671s - problems when streaming video with DLNA

by bobich1 / January 15, 2013 2:03 AM PST

Hello chaps,

I have the following problems with my smart TV. When i start a DLNA server (i have tried with many) on my laptop and then from the TV i start some video film it runs fine for couple of seconds and then stuck on loading for a while and then run normal. And this repeats until the end of the film. It is really annoying. At first my router was without N standard.Now i have a new one which supports the N standard but it is the same.
Do somebody used to experience such problem and what is the solution.

You need to get it all wired for a test run to see if it's the bandwidth or the encoding issue. The solution is unacceptable to most so I won't write it here.

There is that issue with WiFi and routers.

See page 43.
"Your modem router has a firewall that blocks unauthorized access to your wireless network and permits authorized inbound and outbound communications. Authorized communications are established according to inbound and outbound rules. The firewall has the following two default rules. You can create custom rules to further restrict the outbound communications or more widely open the inbound communications:
• Inbound. Block all access from outside except responses to requests from the LAN side.
• Outbound. Allow all access from the LAN side to the outside"

Notice how an inbound access from WiFi is blocked? You'll want to change that.
Page 44 (using the page counter in the PDF viewer) shows the default is BLOCK ALWAYS.

Again, firewalls like this are a cause for many of these issues. Your choice to allow communication.

Sorry but I can't guess your setup but getting wired may have you checking your router firewall.
