trouble navigating synology NAS


skypickle

Question

Television is LGOLED55E6P with the latest firmware update (.17). My NAS is a synology 1515 and has software that serves media (DLNA server) I cannot browse the NAS per se. When I go to the main home menu of all the apps along the bottom I can choose 'connect to device' and it allows me to choose 'photo/video' or 'music' and then connect to a shared folder. In fact these are NOT all the folders shared over the network using the smb protocol but only a subset that are served up by the DLNA server in the NAS. Other DLNA devices also show up (like the sonos box Ihave). 

 

Using 'Device Connect' and then selecting 'music' allows playing all formats - even m4a lossless. but i cannot play video files from the video folder even though they are browse able. However, I can play video files if i navigate first to 'photo/video' from the device connect folder. But I cannot see any folders within the photo folder.

I can also select 'photo and video' from the main E6 menu and it shows the same three DLNA shared folders on my nas - photo, video, music. 

For some reason it does not like to browse any folders in the photo folder- that shows up as empty. The video folder also has a lot of content and these show up fine. Even if i copy a jpg or a tiff to the root of the video folder, these files do not show up.

In the video folder, I browsed to a folder named HDMV-2d that contains test patterns obtained from this forum

I can navigate the folder structure to the stream folder to see individual clips. Some videos play(even numbered ones -00002.m2ts,00004.m2ts,etc) and some do not(odd numbered ones-00001.m2ts,00003.m2ts,etc). Very bizarre. It does not recognize .iso (it would be too much to expect it to auto mount iso files). All video formats seem to play(stream) well. Interestingly, when I use 'device connect' app, select 'music' and then navigate to the the video folder with that, it does not see the vob,mkv,mp4 and the m4v files. Although all of these formats are playable when going through the 'photos & videos' app in the main E6 menu or if i select the 'photo/video option' that the 'Device Connect' app presents. I guess it auto filters formats. Perhaps it is auto filtering out all photo formats as well. Clearly a bug. And yes I am using the latest firmware. 3.10.17
I do not know how to check the versions of the installed app that plays video or shows picture. 

When browsing the music I have no trouble either from the music app on the main LG menu or with the 'connect device' app.

 

 

So what's wrong with the photo browsing?

      Model: 42UB700T-TH version 03.02.25. Has not got any software update since  3-4 Years - What a mess...…
      This TV is just a random box now... Once purchased this model - new version from LG was introduced; making this just a playing box...
      None of the recent OTT's can be installed..
      We need a fix or else some solution to it.
      Its really a disheartening experience after being loyal to this brand in any appliance we purchase.

      Hi,
      My TV is driving me nuts!
       
      I keep getting reminders for programs starting for programs I don’t watch or have never watched and 2. The tv even switches on for scheduled programs that I haven’t set.. actually I have only ever set one program reminder and that has now been deleted.
       
      I can’t see any programs in the reminder page or anywhere in the tv programmer?
       
      Short of resetting the tv I don’t know what else to try? And I don’t really want to do that until I know how the tv ended up like this? Plus I don’t want to have to reload and sign in to all my apps 😬

      Hi all,
       
      My LG OLED55E7N just updated to firmware 06.00.25. I must have wronged the god of Google, because I fail to find any whatsnew. Anyone?
      Thx

      Recently bought 2021 model OLED 55” A1 with WebOS 6(I think). When watching anything on all4 ( I know I’m lucky that I could get all4 after reading about 2020 models), but there seems to be an issue that the TV doesn’t seem to realise that there is content playing and so the screensaver comes on every 2 minutes.  
      Anyone else got this issue and more important how to fix it?

      I hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.
