SAMSUNG,could you please make the DLNA work ?

by bobdenar / January 16, 2010 6:46 PM PST

Hi

after much research, I have come to the following conclusion:

At present my LE46B650T3W will never stream HD MKV from DLNA.

So what I've done is convert them to MPG using MKV2VOB, (superb streaming on WINDOWS MCE7 + extender by the way).

The MPG image is fine but plays like in fast forward without sound. I checked several files, and the only one that plays properly with sound is a 25 FPS with 384Kbps AC3 audio.

So could anyone at SAMSUNG possibly please update firmware ver.T-CHL7DEUC-2005.0 to enable 23.976 fps streaming with 448 or 640 Kbps.

thans in advance

bob

I don't want to write it again so here is the post I had addressing the conversion...it lists the program you would need (freeware) along with the procedure that works!

I'm using SamyGO extension... it will permit you to map the pc's Hard-disk directly to the TV....no DLNA anymore it work perfectly... FWd, BACK, Pause work very fine...... I don't use DLNA anymore.... you can install it using a USB pen.. no firmware change... so no warranty problem.
Only one "defect" ... the map will be disconnect after each power off.... it mean that you have to map the drive using the remote control .. after each power on in case you would like to watch your divx, mkv files.

been meaning to try the SamyGo hack, I saw it on the Tversity forums but also noticed it required remap everytime. Someone said they put a macro in the Logitech remote that would map it. I will have to check it out again based on your post.

DLNA DOA
by gjlloyd70 / January 18, 2010 8:18 PM PST

DLNA is a pretty horrible protocol, and samsung's implementation of it is brain dead. i would stop holding your breathe for the 'magic firmware' update that will fix it. I bought a 750 and spent countless hours messing around with 10 different DLNA servers, none were able to consistently play/pause/FF with all the common media formats. Solution? went to best buy and bought a $120 WD live box (ethernet in, HDMI out), which picks up all my network share content, and plays almost all the video formats i've thrown at it (only quicktime doesn't work). life's too short to wait for sumsung to do what they should have done in the first place, so get one of these boxes and you'll be happy.
