    Browse PC: New files not seen straight away!

    I can connect to my Windows 7 PC properly, can access the Pictures and Videos folders and even playback such media on my TV.

    However, when I place a new file or even a new directory under say my "Videos" folder, that new file or directory is not seen by the TV. It continues to show the files as if the new contents were simply not there. After a while, it then starts to see this new content.

    Obviously, the TV is not refreshing its list of contents and therefore not seeing the new files. I have not yet found a way of manually refreshing the shown contents on the TV.

    Does anyone know how I can get the TV to see new files and directories much faster. It is really annoying when I want to play a video file from my PC that is not under the Videos folder. I can copy the new contents into that area, but I then have to wait until the TV sees it and that can take hours.

    Regards

    Peter

    Hi Peter,

    Obviously, the TV is not refreshing its list of contents and therefore not seeing the new files.
    As the TV does not "search" for any files this is not correct but you are on the right way.
    All content, shown by network is delivered to the TV via the DLNA Server.
    The TV only searches for the server, from that point on, only the server decides what to show and when.

    So to make sure you got all files available via the TV which are in fact in the right folder on the PC. You have to adopt the DLNA Server settings.
    There is nothing to do on the TV.

    Regards
    Thomas

    Thomas is right - new files show up on the TV as soon as the DLNA server provides them.
    Maybe you have to go up one hierarchy and back, but they then appear immediately.

    Please check how often your media server refreshes the directory lists.
    For example, if you use TVersity, you have to press "Refresh directory" when you want new files to show up immediately.
