Undefined behaviour of the TV when connecting to DLNA: some tips....
Some people on the forum report that their TV shows strange behaviour when connected to a DLNA server, like rebooting, can't get connected, does not see the server, etc..
One of our posters (tnx "weijte000" :)) experienced similar issues with his setup, but was able to solve it in the following way:
1. Remove all attached devices and run the network for a day, see if the problem persists. If not, it's one of the connected peripherials.
2. Do a factory reset on (at least) the router. Disconnect all connected network devices like NAS devices. Test networking with direct connection to the router and internet and no other devices attached. Then start adding the other devices again one by one and test after each device.
Some additional tips:
3. Take care that ALL network connected devices run the latest software version.
4. Do not select only the 802.11n wireless standard in the router setup. The (older) TV's cannot handle this. Always choose 802.11b/g/n (multi standard).
Hope this will help in some cases.
DLNA does not work here as well
3 weeks ago I bought 47PFL6687K and face the same problems. TV can see (sometimes) the mediaservers (latest versions) on my PC and notebook (both WinXP), but never the shared content. From USB it works just fine.
Moreover the wifi smart screen and Simply Share streaming work from time to time. They lose the connection as well. The whole internet functions incl. Smart TV and menus is crap. No cursor in the browser, the first and last items in the menu are not connected. Hey, it's 2012!
I'm quite shocked the Philips moderator did not bring any advice in this discussion for about 2 months!
I spoke to Philips support in CZ twice and sent a few mails, no solution yet. I spent hours or even days on solving all the issues (incl. duplicite channels coming to my favourites again and again).
I'm going to write a story about this for my friend, UK journalist, how the Philips Customer Care looks like, and intend to return TV within the one month period and buy Samsung instead.
Or is there anybody of Philips who could help us?
