Just wondering if anybody else is having problems when using Samsungs DLNA TV's and blu-ray players to stream content from their PC's? I keep getting random disconnect messages. I'm using Serviio as the media server on my PC, as it's much better than Samsungs software. I am using a wired cat 5 connection. Someone suggested that I try a different router, such as Netgear or Belkin. Does MTS allow me to do this, or are you limited to using the 2wire router?
Thanks in advance.
@bimbamboom, do you get the disconnects when watching DLNA content or when the connection is idle? Do you have AllShare installed as well?
I tried Serviio on the weekend with a LN40D550 Samsung TV with the 2Wire router and it worked OK. I watched a 45 minute SD TV show with no disconnects. I installed AllShare first and it worked OK, but I had problems when both services were running.
Dr. Dave, the disconnects stopped when I assigned my Samsung blu-ray a static address. Now I can watch content from my PC even when downloading torrents. I can't really say why a static IP would make a difference, since my DHCP had been set to 1 week renewal. And I'm still using Serviio.
