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
- I changed two lines in Samsung.conf like this:
- 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:
Now my TV can render anything from the PMS
