Help - Video thumb images not appearing on webOS 2.2 over DLNA


nashwan

Question

I have the following setup:

 

LG 55EF950V television which is running webOS 2.2.0-1317 (this should be the latest version of the OS).

 

I have a number of video files on my Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS which I connect to with the TV over DLNA (on the TV this is Smart Share -> Devices -> (NAS))

 

I can see all the video files and play them etc., however when viewing the list of files I dont see any thumb images even though I have a JPEG image for each file.  For example: "My Video.mkv" has a thumb call "My Video.jpg".  For collections I put a "cover.jpg" image in the directory (this doesnt work either on the LG TV).

 

Has anyone else out there managed to get a webOS 2 TV to show video thumb nail images for videos over DLNA?

 

 

BTW: this all works when I use a Samsung TV so I dont think it has anything to do with the way the Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS is setup.

You don't miss much.  The thumb image is VERY bad on the LG.  It's VERY pixelated.

I'd still like to get something rather than nothing :-)

 

Can you supply details of what you were using? the NAS? Image details? were they JPEG? what resolution etc?

 

Thanks.

I try to attach a picture to show you here but it doesn't let me...

 

I don't use NAS.  I use Serviio running on my PC.  The software is free and I already have a PC.  It's much cheaper than go by a NAS.  You can easily add more hard drive to PC if needed where NAS is only limited to the space.  You don't need a powerful PC neither.  Setting up is very straight forward.  You just add the folders where your media files are.  From the TV, under SmartShare, Device, you will see Serviio and drill down to your contents...

It would be great if you could answer nashwan's question as I have the same problem. I don't get up my folder art in thumbnail view. My folder art is named "folder.jpg". All I see are generic folders with the titles I have given them. I would like my folder art (folder.jpg files) to fill the folder icons for quick reference. 

Below is an example of what I see:

Thank you! Look forward to your reply :)

      On LG OLEDs. You go on and disable SIMPLINK. Fine. But everytime you turn on your HDMI device it enables itself back again. This happens because they have disables two key features that were present in previous OSs, as you can see clearly here
      link hidden, please login to view (they even put screencaps of the menus where you see the missing options in the 23) These functions are Auto Power Sync and Auto Device Detection.
      Man updates are supposed to add functionalities not the other way around. It's very annoying to turn on your TV and have your AVR turn on without you wanting to.

      Anyone found a solution for this problem?

      Hi all,
      I'm wondering how you can get into the service menu (In Start) on an old LG Smart TV (42LB630V) running WebOS 1.4.  I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) with a IR blaster, I have tried sending '0x04FB 0xFB04' to I which should be IR code to enter the menu, but that doesn't work.
      I have also tried entering it with the SSAP-Web, but I get:
      error: 500 Application error {"errorCode":-101,"returnValue":false,"errorText":"\"com.webos.app.factorywin\" was not found OR Unsupported Application Type" The SAPP-Web app does works though, because the TV does respond to Get info
      { "returnValue": true, "product_name": "webOS", "model_name": "HE_DTV_WT1M_AFAAABAA", "sw_type": "FIRMWARE", "major_ver": "05", "minor_ver": "05.90", "country": "omitted", "device_id": "omitted", "auth_flag": "N", "ignore_disable": "N", "eco_info": "01", "config_key": "00", "language_code": "en-GB" } The reason I want to access the menu is because I've enabled DEBUG mode on my TV through the NVM method and I want to enter a root shell trough UART to enable SSH and root access.
      Gaining root access through NVM:

      hello members
      my friend has just brought a new 55inch oled. He watches Sky 90% of the time from using he's sky box. we have the sky box set up on HDMI 1. 
      we are trying to find a way that he can use just the one remote ( the new magic oled one ) that comes with the TV.
      so far we have worked out you can control sky through using the magic oled remote, we can change channels and so on.
      we have also just worked out you can switch the TV off and it also switches of the sky box off, but we cant work out how to switch sky box and TV on at the same time from using the magic remote. in order to switch the sky box on we have to go into home hub, select HDMI 1 and we then get the option box come up that says do you want to switch on sky box ( at this point we obviously select yes ) and it switches sky box on.
      we were looking for a easier fix, to switching tv and sky box on at the same time just from the one remote without having to go into things.
      i have also noticed there is a sky app , does this app do the same as the sky box ?
       
      any help appreciated
      Matt
