I have the latest versions of everything (TV software, iOS, app, etc). Both my Andoid and iOS phones detect the TV and the remote part is working but easy share is sticked in Searching for playback devices. Im missing something? Anyway, is a great feature. Thanks

the diaporama option of the former app was however working fine!

If your TV doesn't appear in the SimplyShare feature of the Philips MyRemote app, your TV has been disabled for SimplyShare discovery (only for 2k10 models and later).

To enable it (again), please follow below steps:
- Go to the menu of the TV,
- Go to "Setup" or "Configuration" (depending on the TV model),
- Go to "Network settings",
- Go to "Show PC Media files" (or "Digital Media Renderer DMR"),
- Change selection to "On" and click OK on your remote control to save your selection.

Your TV is now SimplyShare enabled and will appear in the Simplyshare feature of the Philips MyRemote app.

JuAn

This doesn't work for me :-(
I have an 40pfl9704 with firmware 26.78 (latest).
There is no menu where i can activate "Show PC Media Files" (or an german expression for that)!

That means, still no way to see iPhone media on my TV:confused:
Windows7 streaming and Playback-Server on my Mac are working, only the iPhone-App can't stream. BTW Air-music on iPhone can stream to the TV:confused:

Could you explain us what to do, with some more details?
Thanks for support!

There's also no "Digital Media Renderer DMR" :-(

Could you please explain to me, why 2k9 models are not supported anymore?
Streaming via UPnP is working perfectly with my PC and Mac and other Apps on my iPhone?
I don't get why myRemote is not supported?

Thanks for your help!

Edit:
Magically after deleting and reinstalling myRemote, streaming works now :-D
TV shows the content of the iPhone, but iPhone still doesn't show TV as Playback-device (but I don't mind about this, as long as streaming from myRemote to the TV is working).
Now there's one more problem:
I activated "convert to 128kbit/s AAC" in iTunes, now the TV can't play 99% of my song! Is there a possibility to convert it on the fly, just as Air-music does it?

Sorry guys,

SimplyShare + EPG are only working from 2010 TV models onward.

To know from what year range your TV is, check the TV type number (e.g. 32PFLxxx4). If the last number is a '4' your TV is a 2009 TV. If the last number is a '5' your TV is a 2010 TV, etc.

After some testing and reinstalling IT IS WORKING on 9704(!), with the problems I posted above...

Can you explain how ? Thanks

What I’ve done:
I deleted the app completely from the iPhone, restarted iPhone and TV, then installed the App from the Appstore again. After I opened it, there was content shown on the iPhone-App and now I can stream Music, Photos and Videos to the TV (make sure you activated that the App can use the position of your iOS-Device). Still the iPhone doesn’t show the TV as an playback-device, but I don’t mind about that, as long as the TV has access to the iPhone content…

Hope I could help some of the users in this forum, which are facing the same problem...

- Go to "Show PC Media files" (or "Digital Media Renderer DMR"),
- Change selection to "On" and click OK on your remote control to save your selection.

No, it doesn't!

I saw in your profil that you have a 32PFL8404H/12. The menu which JuAn mentioned doesn't exist on …04 (means from 2009) devices. I have an 9704 and can't find the menu, too. Yesterday I used a 8606 and there the menu exists. That means it should be on your …05-device …
greetings

PS: try to delete and reinstall the app on your iOS-Device, that helped me ;-)

...but the old "diaporama" feature of the former release of the MyRemote app was working on the xxx4 TV sets perfectly! How could we get it back? Please provide a fix.

Or alternatively, maybe one of us would write a free app using Philips open APIs? ;(

Hi -

I don't have the option "Show PC Media Files" or "DMR". I have a model 40PFL9904H/12, but under network, I can only view settings or set-up to join my wireless network. Is this really the best GUI Philips could do? I'm fast losing interest in this...

Hi Kevin,
you can stop searching for the menu you mentioned!!
As I wrote above, our TV models aren't able to use SimplyShare as Philips suggests, because we have ..04H-models, which means they are from 2009! The menu of a 2011 TV looks completely different...

Thanks for the reply. So as I understand it, Simply Share will not work on my TV then!?

In my case (9704H) SimplyShare works in parts. The iPhone doesn't show the TV as a playback device, but the TV shows the iPhone as a SimplyShare Server! Its quite strange, just give it a try?!
Greetings!

I have a 2K11 model but even if I do as JuAn suggest there are no connections in the
SimplyShare feature. I have a HTC Sensation.

What is the next step? a new TV?

Hu JuAn,

now I did what you suggested. I put my quistion here at the support forum, but it does not help.
I am sticked in serching for plaback devices on my HTC sensation when usign myremote. I have tried with an app from twonky, but it is the same, the TV is not found. DMR is "on" - I have restarted the router several times (it is a TDC homebox, for internet and telephone, not TV),
shall I just give up???

Dear Svend,

It’s hard to judge what may be the root cause of the issue. For some reason our application doesn’t detect the TV. Can you see other renderers on the network like Window Media Player for example?

I have a brand new 46PFL8686K (SW Q5551-0.14.93.0) and trying to access the TV via SimplyShare from ipad and iphone using the MyRemote App.

The same problem as the others: I get the message "No playback TV found: It seems like the SimplyShare feature of your TV is disabled".

I have turned on the DMR in the TV setup menu. My Wifi base station is a FritzBox 7270.
NetTV is working fine, so Wifi is working.

How can I solve the problem? Anything to configure in the Router?

Regards, Klaus

It doesn't work. DMR is already set to On, but the TV is not shown in SimplyShare screen within MyRemote iPhone app. The message "No playback TV found!" is poped-up on the iPhone screen with the same instructions mentioned above. BTW Remote control works fine within the same MyRemote app.

The TV is 32PFL5007K/12 software update Q554E-0.79.4.0_bid4a release for TV550R4.

I appreciate any assistance...

Thanx in advance
Igor

I don't get it. Does Simply Share can work depending on your TV model? http://imagicon.info/cat/12-19/vbulletin-wink.gif
