Philips TV not appearing in the device list and no DLNA access

Not yet unfortunately as I haven't been able to personally test on a Phillips. We do have an Android TV app though.

Hi,

 

I wanted to know if you found a solution for the Philips Smart TV?

 

If not, I'm ready to test some things if you tell me what to do.

 

We haven't been able to personally test on a Philips ourselves, so it's hard to say. Recent releases have made fixes for other devices though, so there's always a chance it will help with Philips too. You may want to try the 4.3 beta. Thanks.

Well, I've just tested it: I see my server listed on the DLNA devices now but when I enter, it freeses my TV (I can't even turn it off). The model is 58PSU6203.

It hasn't Android TV. 

I used the 4.3.0.18 beta

 

EDIT: I tested again and It worked!!!

I'll try tomorrow just to be sure...

Ok thanks for testing.

I tested again this morning. What I did:

- I turn the TV on

- Go to Network

- I see my Emby DLNA (good!)

- I go inside: the TV freezes

:(

I tested twice and came with the same result.

Hi,

 

I went back to the 4.2.1.0:

I don't know if it could be a lead but when I selected "Blast alive messages", Emby appears on my smart tv.

It still freeze my tv when I select it.

 

I even saw in the log that emby create a profile with the friendly name of my tv.
It may be a profile problem finally.

 

What do you think ?

I would think the profile would only affect playback, but I could be wrong.

 

What happens if you try the profile in post 33?

Can you post a server log after trying that profile.

Hello,

The Philips TV profiles is not used at all do to different user-agents.

2019-11-05 08:06:10.886 Info HttpServer: HTTP GET http://192.168.11.47:8096/dlna/25a30dc01ea34102906b7941a59ef620/description.xml. UserAgent: IPI/1.0 UPnP/1.0 DLNADOC/1.50

Can you go to DLNA-Profiles and select the Philips TV custom profile.  Scroll down and expand Identification, then go to HTTP Headers and add another.

Name: User-Agent

Value: IPI

Match type: Substring

Cilck OK then save.

Don't think you need to but restart Emby.

 

Does that make any difference.  Post another server log.

I did what you asked me to do: the profile is used but Emby still freezes my TV.

 

I don't know if it helps but Plex DLNA and OMV MiniDLNA works too.

I guess you realized that emby is the only so call server with dlna function which is not working with philips and i think also not with other android tvs.

Other tvs only run by trail and error coding. Lukes argument is that he needs to physically own such a tv to record the traffic and to customize emby to be able to talk to such tvs.

Mega lol. 

Please read all the posting in this thread and you will see. ;-)

 

Use any other DLNA server -> because ALL others are working, even the intel upnp toolkit!

 

The most funny think is that Luke simply ignores that fact that emby is NOT upnp/dlna compatible.

Hi,

 

First of all, you need to know that I wanted the device I took for few things.

I've found a plan B: I bought a Nvidia Shield TV.

Emby works very good on it. Except sometimes I have to run it twice because the first time I get a black screen.

I use MX Player with it cause when Emby detects that the codec doen't exist, it has to transcode but my server is not powerful enough for that so the video freezes all the time. But the Shield works fine with MX (I think that it's an Emby player problem that should work as MX Player).

 

It's sad to use a plan B for something I paid but I didn't find another way...

Hi,

Just to update, have just got a philips 50PUS8555 and I am experiencing the constant loading symbol. The emby server is showing in the device list but when selecting it I just get the loading wheel and nothing else.

Emby version 4.5.2.0

Happy to do some testing.

Thanks

Hi, it could be related to certain content.

You could try setting up a test emby server with only one library using content type home videos, and have this library contain only a single mp4 video file. See if it works with something basic like that. Thanks.
