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?

      Hello,
       
      After updating on 05.60.15 i have popping sound on all three hdmi ports.  I tried several different HDMI cables but it reappears when connected to the receiver. When I watch netflix or internet the sound is fine. 
      Is there a problem with the update or something is wrong with the TV? I repeat before the update the sound was great.

      I bought a new 77 inch OLED tv a year ago. Ever since then it has randomly reset itself when using apps, (Youtube, Sirius, Netflix, doesn't matter). Basically the tv freezes, closes out the app and goes black as if the power has been cut, and then restarts to HDMI 1 just as it does whenever the TV is first turned on. I have had a technician visit 4 times already and he's replaced the main board, the wifi board, the remote control and the remote sensor. Basically he's replaced everything except the display and the power cord. Of course we've made sure the firmware is up to date and done many hard resets and nothing works.  I'll add one more thing that happened last week for the first time, but it happened twice so it is definitely not a coincidence. I was watching a movie on Disney Plus and a half second before my phone rang, the movie stopped like before, but this time the app restarted in stead of the entire tv restarting. This exact same thing happened 15 minutes later, a half second before another call came in so it was not a coincidence. My phone is android with Verizon fwiw, but of course I get calls all of the time and this only happened this one day. Since almost everything has been replaced I had already been thinking that some kind of electromagnetic interference may be at issue, but this is not my specialty. Has anyone else experienced this?
