      I am using SmartShare to connect my laptop to my LG smart TV. In the software on the laptop it signals that there are external subtitles available as soon as I name the .srt files appropriately, but the TV does not play them. The button for sub is grey and not clickable. Sometimes internal subtitles, integrated in the .mkv video file, do not work either. Sometimes they do. External subtitles (.srt) never work. External subtitles (.sub + .idx) usually work.
      What is the cause for .srt not loading on the TV, but shows up in the computer software as available?

      I have the 55ec930t in Australia with the latest firmware. When I access my synology NAS via smartshare I go to my videos folder and I can only see the first 1000 files in the folder and it won't load the rest or let me somehow go to the next lot of 1000 etc. is this a bug and could the capability to load all files in any folder no matter what the number of files is be added please in the next firmware update.
      I haven't checked this with a photos folder yet.

      I discovered that my LG SmartShare app could not play FLAC or M4A audio files natively from my DLNA server, so I decided to enable transcoding on the server to present MP3/WAV resources in addition to the native stream. However, the SmartShare app still doesn't display those files when browsing for audio, and I am trying to determine why.
      And now, the extreme technical detail:
      I have a shell utility, upnp-browse.sh to make HTTP calls to my DLNA server, emulating the types of calls that LG SmartShare would make:
      #!/bin/sh curl -s -d @- -H 'Content-Type: text/xml; charset="utf-8"' -H 'SOAPAction: #Browse' http://host/path/to/DLNA \ | xmllint --xpath '////Result/text()' - \ | recode html..utf8 \ | xml_pp The curl call makes a HTTP POST request with the data from stdin, which would have similar content to the following:
      <?xml version="1.0"?> <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" s:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"> <s:Body> <u:Browse xmlns:u="urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:serviceType:v"> <ObjectID>ID_PARENT</ObjectID> <BrowseFlag>BrowseDirectChildren</BrowseFlag> </u:Browse> </s:Body> </s:Envelope> The call to curl then yields an XML Response similar to the following:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" s:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"><s:Body><u:BrowseResponse xmlns:u="urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:ContentDirectory:1"><Result><DIDL-Lite xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:upnp="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/upnp/" xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/DIDL-Lite/" xmlns:dlna="urn:schemas-dlna-org:metadata-1-0/"> <item id="ID_FILE" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1"><dc:title>Title</dc:title><upnp:class>object.item.audioItem.musicTrack</upnp:class><dc:creator>Creator</dc:creator><upnp:artist>Artist</upnp:artist><res size="######" duration="H:MM:SS.###" bitrate="1022868" sampleFrequency="44100" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/x-flac:*">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.ext</res><res duration="H:MM:SS.###" bitrate="176400" sampleFrequency="44100" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/L16;rate=44100;channels=2:DLNA.ORG_PN=LPCM;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/LPCM/####.ext</res><res duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/MP3/####.ext</res></item><container id="ID_FOLDER" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1" searchable="1" childCount="#"><dc:title>folder name</dc:title><upnp:class>object.container.storageFolder</upnp:class><upnp:storageUsed>-1</upnp:storageUsed></container></DIDL-Lite></Result> <NumberReturned>2</NumberReturned> <TotalMatches>2</TotalMatches> <UpdateID>3</UpdateID></u:BrowseResponse></s:Body></s:Envelope> Then the calls to xmllint, recode, and xml_pp take this data and extract the data from the Result node and format it for readability, yielding an output similar to:
      <DIDL-Lite xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/DIDL-Lite/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:dlna="urn:schemas-dlna-org:metadata-1-0/" xmlns:upnp="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/upnp/"> <item id="ID_FILE" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1"> <dc:title>Title</dc:title> <upnp:class>object.item.audioItem.musicTrack</upnp:class> <dc:creator>Creator</dc:creator> <upnp:artist>Artist</upnp:artist> <res bitrate="1022868" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/x-flac:*" sampleFrequency="44100" size="######">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.ext</res> <res bitrate="176400" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/L16;rate=44100;channels=2:DLNA.ORG_PN=LPCM;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000" sampleFrequency="44100">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/LPCM/####.ext</res> <res duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/MP3/####.ext</res> </item> <container childCount="#" id="ID_FOLDER" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1" searchable="1"> <dc:title>folder name</dc:title> <upnp:class>object.container.storageFolder</upnp:class> <upnp:storageUsed>-1</upnp:storageUsed> </container> </DIDL-Lite> Note with the sample file (item node), it contains three res nodes. The DLNA client (LG SmartShare) should select the data from the res node for the format it supports, and allow for selection of the item, but when I browse in the container which contains the item, LG SmartShare doesn't show it.
      For native MP3 files, SmartShare will show and play those items. I can provide output for native MP3 items, as well as OGG or MP4/M4A files if those would help, though they all look fairly similar. However, for native MP3 files, the first res node has a slightly different set of DLNA flags:
      <res bitrate="128000" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=01;DLNA.ORG_CI=0;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01700000000000000000000000000000" sampleFrequency="44100" size="######">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.mp3</res> Is my server serving something incorrectly, does SmartShare just not support multiple res nodes, or have I overlooked something?

      I'm sharing photos from a Windows PC to my TV (8600PLA) and am able to see the folders and contents on the TV screen. However, I'm astonished by how primitive the interface seems to be - akin to PC apps maybe 20 years ago. There seems to be no way to simply select a folder and then view the images with in it. No "Select all" - really? It's not unusual for my folders to contain 100 or more images. Am I really expected to select the folder, select VIEW and then tick each image individually, before then going down to press the PLAY button? What if I have guests to whom I want to show the photos - are they supposed to wait while I go through this? This is so laborious that it will probably mean I just don't use the facility. 
      If there is a "Select all" option I would be grateful for help finding it. The link on the web site to instructions didn't work and the page https://eguide.lgappstv.com/manual/gb/12005.html (found through a Google search) didn't mention it.

      Subtitles look fine when I watch these video files on my computer. When I watch them on the TV, the text is all garbled with weird Arabic characters and other meaningless random symbols. I have the language set to English and I have tried all the different Roman fonts. What is going on and how do I fix this? I specifically got this TV so I could watch video files off my hard drive, but how can I watch samurai movies if I can't understand what the samurai are saying?!
