mediaserver & blu-ray
Hi, I want to view a blu-ray movie on my Philips HD TV, using the built-in network client.
I downloaded & installed the free "Phlips Media Magager" (V3.3.12.0004) SW on my PC, and indeed my TV recognizes this server, and I can play movies across the network. However this media manager doesn't recognizes a blu-ray movie I downloaded. This movie comes as a set of directories, with \BDMV in the root.
I also tried "TotalMedia Theatre 6". This media manager can play my \BDMV blu-ray movie, however my Philips TV does not find this media server.
So, the question is: what media server application does Philips TV support, that can play my bdmv Blu-Ray movies? Or, how else could I view this bdmv blu-ray movie on my TV?
Hi, I did not know for this Philips Media Menager(server). Is it work with mkv files and subtitles?

For blu-ray movie on HDD maybe CyberlinkPDVD12Ultra player with media share option work? Surely I can play blu-ray via the "open folder" function.
Well, I also tried to connect the USB HDD to the TV, and select the BDMV folder. But the TV doesn't recognizes this folder or file structure... Yet "TotalMedia Theatre 6" can play this movie on my PC, but obviously I like to view on my Philips TV..!
Apperantly playing these downloaded blu-ray movies can't be played on my Philips TV...
