I have a Sony Bravia DLNA certified TV (KDL-37EX503) and a WD Mybook Live running firmware 01.03.03 and Twonky 5.1.9 (i.e. unmodified).
The only thing on the MBL is a small number (~30) MPEG2 files.
What is wierd is that the TV only lists (i.e. “sees”) about 50% of them; and it is a consistent 50% of them, as if it was something to do with the files themselves. It can succesfully stream those that it can “see”.
Other DLNA clients (laptop, even phones) can see all the files, and successfully stream them.
The TV can “see” and stream from other media servers (most notably Twonky 4.4.18 running on an Linksys NLSU2) using exactly the same files
As far as I can tell, there is nothing consistently different between the files to separate working from non-working files - I have interrogated with mediainfo and even ffmpeg’s ffprobe. For example they are all MPEG-PS, 720x576, at 25 fps with 6 channel AC-3 audio at approximately the same bitrate. The first stream in all the files is the video rather than the audio. etc.
Any ideas? Does TM 5.1.9 have some sort of TV-specific client setting that is causing problems? I imagine that moving up to TM 6 might solve this (as discussed in other threads) but this comes with a number of issues.
(And I’ve raised this with Sony, but their opinion - not unexpectedly - is that since the TV successfully streams the files from other servers, it isn’t their problem)
