40PFL7605M/08 lose connection to Twonky Media Server 5.1.9
I have connection problems with my Philips 40PFL7605M/08 and Western Digital MyBookLive.
Philips with firmware 140.37.0.
On MyBookLive i have firmware 1.05.07 and Twonky Media Server 5.1.9.
Whenever i play a music file, the tv lose connection to the media server.
Twonky server disappearing after a while.
The media server disappeared from list and doesn't return until I restart the tv.
does it happen also with other servers?
how is the tv connected with this ...a nas it is?
I have the same issue between my 40PFL7605H/12 and my laptop using Windows Media Player as Media Server.
I don't know if it is somehow related to the Net TV connection issue I'm having in these days.
as you can use dlna also without even having a router or internet, i would say, this is something completly different
in my case i'm using dlna through my router.
The tv is connected by cable LAN to router SpeedTouch THOMSON ST585.
Yes, MyBookLive is a NAS.
I make a test connecting TV with TVersity Media Server ver 1.96 on my notebook.
Also with TVersity Media Server, after some minutes the connection break.
All the media servers disappearing until i restart the tv.
At first i would check the network settings on the TV, write down IP, Subnetmask, Gateway, DNS1 and 2.
Do this also on the PC or NAS.
After that, set both, PC/NAS and TV to manual config and enter the Data like you have wrote it down.
If that is done, use a cable (crossover) directly from the TV to the PC/NAS, without! the Router.
If that also doesnt solve the behavior, try to make a picture of the Screen you get, directly after the connection is gone.
Same problem over here, using a 32pfl7605 connected to Twonky (on QNAP NAS) through Thomson TG712 router.
Even though all network-credentials (ip-address, DNS etc) are known by the TV (as listed in the network-config screen), the TV constantly drops its connection with the router/media server. Disconnection network cable and reconnection sometimes cures the problem (temporarily). I hate this because the networking capability of the TV was one of the reasons to buy it...
Did you test this with direct connection between TV and PC? Does it help?
What Router do you use exactly?
Can you please also test the direct connection between the TV and the PC?
I make a quick test with direct connection between TV and NAS without Router SpeedTouch THOMSON ST585. The first test was OK. I would like to do other tests.
I make another test with direct connection and it worked well.
I think it's a router problem.

Tried all possible configs:

but all with the same result; the connection from tv to the network drops (sometimes after a few minutes, sometimes after one or two hours) and the tv can't connect to any network (no NetTV, no NAS) anymore. It hangs on the network-seeking screen.
In case of connection-drops, the ipadres of the tv can actually be pinged from the internal network. My PS3 streams without problems, no connection-drops within the same network as the TV.
i think its time to get in contact with the Local Call Center:
@rodofumi: have you got any windows PC's turned on when the signal drops?
I got the same problem when I turn on my notebook with windows 7 (and WMP -> DLNA).
When I watch a stream from my NAS (twonkyserver 4 I think, Lacie Networkspace2) the TV loses connection when my laptop is turned on. After that, no NAS is visible on the network.
When I reset my router / modem everything comes back.
Hmm, I'll give it a try, tnx for the advice.
