Samsung 46C7000

Postby jaffar » Sun Nov 07, 2010 8:58 pm

Hi all

I'm planning to buy a Samsung Led 3d, 7 series, most probably 46c7000. They say it has AllShare (powered by DLNA), but there's no DLNA in the user manual.
The specifications are pretty generous, it might be able to decode any file by itself, so I will probably just need to stream the files as a first step.
In version 1.20.412 I see a file called Samsung.conf, but I'm afraid that's not AllShare. So... do I have a chance to make it work with PS3 Media Server ?

And, if I can make that work, does the 2d-3d conversion work on network streaming ? (I suppose that's a question for someone that already owns such a 3d set :) )

Specifications:

Thanks a lot

I've read that - but I need to decide whether or not to buy the TV, so it's kind of hard to get that information in a store :)
I was hoping there is someone that already has a 7 series LED and can share their good or bad experience with it.

Sorry, missed the "planning to buy" part :|
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1237704 states that other media servers do seem to work with the Samsung Bluray players with AllShare.
So my guess is you'll be able to get PMS to work (in some fashion) with the new TV, but
a) You'll still probably get the same limitations as the bluray players
b) I obviously haven't confirmed, so don't hold me to it ;)

hi all

ok, nobody will believe me that i've been without internet for 4 months, but that's the sad truth. the TV is amazing and it plays pretty much anything from a USB storage device.
today internet has finally arrived so i can reinstall all my network and perform tests. of course, while the whole house is messed with wires, first thing was to test the PMS with my new tv.

- avi, mpeg, mp3 works fine
- mkv generates a "Not Supported File Format" on the tv

some debugging information:

- I'm using pms-linux-1.20.412
- with the default Samsung.conf, I get this in the log when starting up:

[New I/O server worker #1-1] TRACE 15:41:57.608 Media renderer was not recognized. HTTP User agent :SEC_HHP_TV-46C7000/1.0
[main] TRACE 15:42:00.524 It's ready! You should see the server appears on XMB

- when trying to play a file:

[New I/O server worker #1-2] TRACE 15:42:58.525 Media renderer was not recognized. HTTP User agent :DLNADOC/1.50

- I changed two lines in Samsung.conf like this:

UserAgentSearch=DLNADOC/1.50
StreamExtensions=mp3,mp4,avi,mkv

- now the log looks nicer:

[New I/O server worker #1-1] TRACE 15:48:04.786 Media renderer was not recognized. HTTP User agent :SEC_HHP_TV-46C7000/1.0
[main] TRACE 15:48:06.625 It's ready! You should see the server appears on XMB
[New I/O server worker #1-2] TRACE 15:48:41.188 Renderer Samsung Wiselink found on this address: /192.168.1.5
[New I/O server worker #1-2] TRACE 15:48:43.194 Renderer Samsung Wiselink have an estimated network speed of: 85 Mb/s

- still, when trying to play mkv, i get the same error above.

Another observation is that it takes a very, very long time to show the contents of a folder. One with 53 files takes a few minutes. My computer is pretty strong (Core2Quad)

I've also tried tvmobili and it works right from the box, mkv and everything, so it should be possible :)
Thanks for any suggestions.

EDIT: just read the other topic about Samsung DLNA, and added this change:

MimeTypesChanges=audio/wav=audio/L16|video/x-matroska=video/avi

Now my TV can render anything from the PMS :)

@jaffar:

Look here, viewtopic.php?f=15&t=8889
I have made a conf file that works with Samsung Allshare products. I would assume it works on the Blueray players too, but since i dont have one i cant test it but for samsung TV's it works just fine. Also i put a detection in the string to where you dont have to hard code your TV model it just detects it.
Running on Samsung UN60C6300
