Hi, im completely new to PS3 media server and had a few questions.
To start i recently bought a Samsung 32' Smart TV (UN32EH5300F) and am trying to get the PMS to work with it. It will serve all the files that are nativity supported on the TV just fine the problem comes in with transcoding. I cannot get PMS to transcode any formats that are not supported by my TV. Most notably MKV's with FLAC audio and 10-bit video. The video will play however the audio will not and the TV will inform that FLAC is not supported. I've looked for about 2 days tried various things and couldn't figure out how to get past this hurdle. No matter the file i play or settings i use the transcoding buffer never moves and acts like it's trying to transcode.
My second question isn't as important, but goes along with this as well. Most of the files i watch that use subtitles are in ASS/SSA format. They have potions and colors and such. Is there a way to get the PMS to burn in subtitles on the fly? As my tv wants to simply make them all white and display them all in the same spot, which conflicts with any onscreen text and spoken dialogue.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
