I have been using PMS ver 1.10.51 on my main workstation (Acer dual core, WIN 7) and my laptop (Gateway dual core, WIN 7) successfully for over a year with my PS3. I recently added an Onkyo TX-NR808 reciever and much to my suprise, I could stream all my music successfully through it as well.
I just bought a Samsung UN65C6500 LED/LCD HDTV and it does not work. I have the same issue everyone else had - I could see PMS but got "unsupported file format" when I selected a file. I tried playing around with the Samsung conf file with no luck.
So I decided to upgrade to PMS Ver 1.21.1 on my main workstation and my Samsung works perfectly. But now I have lost my Onkyo 808. I see the server, but get a connection error. I cannot see the files, just get this connection error.
I downgraded to 1.10.51 again and the Onkyo works perfect again.
So what I have is:
Ver 1.10.51 - PS3 Yes, Onkyo 808 Yes, Samsung UN65C6500 No
Ver 1.21.1 - PS3 Yes, Samsung UN65C6500 Yes, Onkyo 808 No
I do not think it is related to my network, as the only change is the version of software.
Somehow I lose my 808 on the new version. I have always liked PMS because it just worked. I was thrilled when it worked with my 808. I am by no means super computer literate, and I have spent hours searching through the amazing amount of information available here, but I am looking for some simple laymans steps to follow to help me resolve the problem. What has changed between these versions that has caused the Onkyo to drop off the list?
Thanks for any and all help!!
