Some TS files played via DLNA cause TV to hang. Please help
Hi I've come across a very strange playback issue via DLNA. I am trying to play standard definition MPEG2 TS [DVB-S] from a Humax Foxsat PVR [running MediaTomb] over Ethernet/cat 5 cable on my Philips 32 PFL7606 [Firmware 0.14.93.0]
I noticed it can play a lot of TS files from the Foxsat but not all. When I looked into it there was a pattern. I discovered that its is not able to play the recorded .TS files form certain specific channels. What is really strange is there is a channel: Film 4 and it has a +1 hour version Film 4+1. Its the same programming shown one hour later, but the recorded TS files from Film4+1 don't play where as the TS from Film4 do play!
I did a review of the channels I am interested on the Foxsat and out of the 54 channels I tested the 32PFL7606 couldn't play the TS files from 12 of them.
When the TV tries to play a TS file from one of the *wrong* channels it causes the TV to sort of hang. And sometimes 4 little dots appear and nothing happens the screen stays blank.
I tried my best to analyze the *bad* TS files. I looked at MediaInfo results for the files, FFMEG results, ProjectX log files, VLC log files but I'm just not knowledgeable enough to spot anything wrong in the files.
I also had the same issue streaming copies of the same files from my Mac to the TV using Serviio DLNA software. TS files from *good* channels would play but the TS files from the *bad* channels wouldn't. So its not an issue related to the Foxsat PVR.
- Does any one have the skill or software to analyze a 30 second sample of a *good* [Film4] TS and a *bad* TS[Film4+1] and see if they can figure out whats causeing the TV to hang? I can upload the samples if any one could help.
- Also Is there any way that the TV could output a log file that I could take a look at?
Any help appreciated. Thanks.
