    Question 42PFL4307H/12: Navigation within DLNA shared media

    Hello everybody.

    I'm using uShare as uPnP server in a Linux machine, and I'm sharing a folder with several movies that include a wide range of container/formats, but when I play them from the 42PFL4307H/12 TV, I can't do more than play/stop/pause. I can't fast forward or rewind any of the movies.

    If I use VLC as uPnP client from a PC, I can navigate within every movie without problems.

    Is this the intended behavior of this model? FW. version is 000.091.000.000.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've just tried now with music: same behavior. I can play but cannot use any search function (ffw / rew).
    In addition, it doesn't show any picture (all standard JPG files).

    Once again, VLC can play, go back and forward within an audio file, and shows all JPG files.

    Is this TV uPNP client so limited, or is it defective? According to the on-screen help, I should be able to see pics and use search functions.

    Regards.

    Nothing to worry with your TV. That's it all.
    You've got what you paid for. No FFW, no RW, no icons.
    Just play, stop, break.

    Not really, it should show pictures at least.

    From the user manual:

    If you connect your TV to the home
    network, you can share movies, pictures
    and music from a computer or media
    server on your home network.
    What you can do
    You can play videos, photos and music on
    your TV from:

    Your computer, connected through the
    home network

    A USB device connected to the TV
    The TV can't perform according to those two statements.

    Regarding playback functions, under Play files from computer
    section it talks vaguely:

    Play files
    1. Press (home button) on the remote control.
    2. Select [Your network], then press OK. If
    the network installation starts, follow the
    onscreen instructions.
    3. Select a file from the content browser,
    then press OK to start play.
    4. Press the Play buttons on the remote
    control to control play.
    "Play buttons"? what does it mean? Below that section and Play files from USB section, it comes another, independant from source of the files: Play options, where it talks about pause, stop, >>, <<, CH- and CH+ for video and music, and pause, stop, CH- and CH+ for pictures.

    So, definitely, the firmware doesn't allow the product to accomplish with specifications.

    Don't worry, not my native language as well.

    Before thinking it's a fraud, I'd like to read from any from the staff: "You're right and we are working to fix that".

    Hi Dr.spock.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Please check that your PC is detecting your TV as a DLNA device. If it's detected as a upnp device ffw or rw will not work.
    On most servers you should be able to change this setting.

    Best regards,

    Thanks, Benedickte. I'll check that as soon as I figure out how to do it from the server and I'll come back with feedback.

    Back with good news:

    I tried to force the uShare parameter USHARE_ENABLE_DLNA=YES in /etc/ushare.conf, but it caused a segmentation fault when running uShare, so I decided to try another dlna server: minidlna.

    After uninstalling uShare and installing minidlna, I changed /etc/minidlna.conf to set my media directory, and then I had to run minidlna -R to rebuild the media db. The result is the expected, it works. It serves pictures now, and I can now ffw and rw movies and music.

    Thanks Benedikte for your hint.

    I hope it's useful to you, user0815: You need a dlna compliant service in your server, that seems not being exactly the same as uPnP. uShare crashes for me when trying to make it work as dlna, but perhaps it's due to the huge amount of media I have, or the tricky names some of the files have.

    Happy streaming everyone =)

    Thanks for sharing the solution.
    :smile: not applicable 4me cause I've no Linux. *Only* Windows 7 with home network and media releases. TWONKY server and all that stuff.
    DLNA should be supported with it, but mine doesn't like FFW or RW. :cry:

    somewhere within twonky you can see all detected devices and how they will be handled, make sure you select a dlna compliant profile
    you can also try ps3media server

    Yes, I know, start Twonky, see Settings, Releases, Terminals. (Item names translated from german)
    I can choose 5 Navigation types. (Ipod like; Mobile´, Classic etc.)
    Tried different but no success when starting movies from the TV Network.
    Only the other way is fine. Push Video from PC to TV gives FFW, RW functions to the TV remote.
    Errrm, should I start another thread ?
