Hi,

First of all let me say I'm pretty much dissapointed by the DLNA media playing capabilities of my 32PFL8605H/12 tv. I bought the TV to eliminate the need for a seperate media player but it seems the TV's software is severely lacking. For example:

- Doesn't play .rar files (VLC, XMBC all do this)
- Doesn't resume playing (play file, turn off tv, turn on tv, play same file... starts at 0:00)
- Skipping/searching is slow and no settings to skip ahead like 30s/1m/5m

And now I just found out not even all .mkv files are supported... it seems if the mkv has a DTS audio codec the tv doesn't want to play the file (displays "File can not be read or found").

Can this be fixed/worked around? New FW?
