    Will SimpleShare be made available to HTS7202/12 in future SW upgrades?

    I have a hard drive connected to my network router (NAS) on which I have stored music, photo’s and films. I’d like to be able to use SimpleShare so that I can select music from this NAS using my phone and play it on the HTS without having to switch on the TV.

    If I use the MyRemote app on my Android phone and select the SimpleShare function, I can select music from this network drive and stream it to my Philips TV (50PFL7956H) but not to the HTS: only the TV appears as available playback device. For the rest, the HTS does appear in the MyRemote app and I can use the phone as remote control for the HTS and explore attached USB devices. Just the simple share does not work.

    I have already updated the HTS7202/12 with the latest software (version 1.27 MCU 27). The set connects to the network without any issues and I can use NetTv and also the build-in DLNA functions (even exploring the mentioned NAS) from the menu which appears on the TV.

    I had this request too, for my HTS9221. Unfortunatly Philips won´t make this possible in 2011 HTS Systems. I think they will have it with new upcoming 2012/2013 HTS.

    @DerShortyy

    Thanks for your reply. Did someone from Philips actualy tell you this was not going to be implemented in 2011 models? I see the threads where you mention you have the same request, but I do not see any reply from Philips.

    I find it hard to believe this is a hardware issue since the systems are DLNA capable, so they should be able to fix this with a software load..

    Hi,
    thats why i did ask Philips-Remko if this will also become available for HTS and he told me that it won´t become available for HTS, but he didn´t tell me why... The only work around for this is, that you put the TV screen to mute to save energy....

    I mean it might be just the platform-wise issue so that HTS7202 is not able to support Simplyshare. We have expressed our wish to have Simplyshare or MyRemote for BDP9600 (our top end model). The moderator/development team replied that they want to have this as well but just there is no mean to enable so in BDP9600's platform.

    maybe it s the same case here for HTS7202. (i m not sure)

    Ok, now i´ve got it... :-)
    i don´t think so, even just because HTS9221 is a little bit higher then the 7202...

    Good news! Yes the HTS7202 is going to be supported by future firmware.

    As you can understand I cannot give you any timeframe for the release.

    Thanks and kind regards,
    So, it seems it will come at some time in the future.... As your system ( HTS9221) shares the same software, I assume it also applies to that one ....

    By the way: good service from Philips. Nice that you have somewhere where you can ask these kind of questions and actually get a respose!
