New Rel. 5.1 neither support start/pause Samsung TV (SOLVED)

Post by san » Fri Sep 25, 2009 2:03 pm

Hi,
I guess when will be reimplementend full compatibility with Samsung TV (my model is a LE46B750) remote control commands.
This release in DLNA streaming (WD My WorldBook White edition NAS) do not support pause/start function (only stop/play works), previous release (for ex. 4.4.9) supports this minimal feature (ff and rw never supported since first release)

Thank you

As Vincent discovered the trick

rename all files video in .mpg
this trick works (probably for all NAS and PC) on version 4.4.17 and 4.4.18 (NOT work in rel. 5.0 and above)
and samsung latest firmware release (2004)

tested xvid/dvx/mpeg/h.264 codecs also in full Hd 1080p and hdready 720p

setting Twonky for samsung as generic dlna 1,5 client

Please Twonky Team patch rel. 5.1 soon!!!

5.1.1 did not work, but 5.1.2 does allow pause/resume using the enter key. Seems to work on my LE40B650 for various file formats that did not work with 5.1.1

Now how about fast forward/ rewind, he said ungratefully . . . . . :)

Not sure if there is anything we can do about that without Samsung's help. I'll be meeting with them in a few weeks and will try to bring this issue up. Don't get your hopes up too high. It can take months and month for CE manufacturers to do firmware updates.
