DLNA not refreshing files


Kuriko

Question

Hello, I have a LG OLED C9 and a Synology Diskstation (Wifi). The LG shows in DLNA only very old files. I can't see new addes files/folders or I see deleted files. There is no "Refresh"-Button. Currently the DLNA for LG OLED C9 is unfortunately useless.

I've seen in my research that that's been a problem for LG TVs for years. How can that be? Is there any workaround or trick to update DLNA?

Yes its a hit or miss with refresh.  If you have a fairly new/capable NAS install PLEX on it. Then install PlEX on your tv as well. It organises your media and everything splendidly.

Otherwise power cycle the tv.

Like the author said, a "Refresh" button would be great.

I've had the same problem with a media server on Windows 10 on my older UK6300 and now on my Nano80, I solved it by turning off the Quick Start+ option in All Settings -> General -> Additional Settings.
It's not ideal since it cause the TV to take more time loading, but the refresh is more important to me.

There is currently only one reliable way, that I know of, to refresh the DLNA files. You have to fully power off the tv and turn it back on. When you press the power button, it does not fully power off. You can either unplug the tv(very inconvenient) or another way I have figured out, go in to settings>general>user agreements, remove the check marks and then hit accept(a bit less inconvenient). Your tv should tell you that it needs to reboot and it will then do a true restart. When you access your DLNA server, it will update the files.

On your NAS, go the the DLNA setup. My Seagate NAS allows me to select how often the DLNA updates.  My was set for once per day (minimum setting), therefore I had the same problems you did, when I added or deleted files I wouldn't see the changes on my TV.  I then changed my setting to every 5 minutes (maximum setting), bingo that did it.  I don't the impact of  doing it so often, so I changed it to every 4 hours now knowing how the system works.   With all that said ... I do believe the LG WebOS Smart TV setting also has something to do with it, I just haven't figured that out yet.

Same problem here - unbelievable, but true.  On our brand new LG OLED TV 55BX many DNLA video files even become unplayable from one day to the other.

So far I fixed all of the above disasters by unplugging the network cable for a short moment.  That refreshes all DNLA files and also fixes the "unable to play"  bla bla...   Even the "refresh" option in the top right corner didn‘t help. It refreshes the list of extern storage devices.
 

Thanks to all these huge companies for spending millions in marketing rather than functioning. I know its not easy - being a software engineer myself - but there seem to be far to few of them amongst the management.

Thanks for the "All Settings -> General -> Additional Settings > Quick Start+ off" suggestion.
I had been working around this problem, when it occasionally occurred, by taking the power cable out of the back of my TV (an LG-43UM7400PLB) and putting it back in, but I don't want to keep doing that, and risk wear and tear.

So this approach, which worked when I tried it just now, seems much better, and turning the TV on doesn't seem much slower, maybe 10 seconds.

Another workaround to refresh the listed DNLA files is to remove the ethernet cable for just a second. This reacquires the list, but doesn‘t work for wireless lan …

I did try that again today,, before finding this suggestion, because it had worked sometimes in the past (I have my TV connected via ethernet), but today it didn't work.

I'm hoping that turning Quick Start+ off will be a more consistent solution, but I'll have to give it some time to see.

      The new WebOS Home makes the TV feels more gadget-ty or app-y while the old home feels more like an appliance. Is there a way to get back to the old home view?

      We just purchased a new LG WebOS TV OLED 65" and running the setup through the app or the TV remote says it can't load the user agreement. This is blocking us from getting to streaming apps like Nexflix or any smart functions like Voice assistant.
      TV worked fine for a few days but voice assistant stopped working and after much effort LG tech said to  Reset to Initial Settings. Now we have mentioned no smart functions. TV is on ethernet and its browser functions on web fine. Tried running off neighbor's wifi with same results.
      Tried switching to different country, unplugging/hold power button for 20 seconds/wait one minute,  resetting TV multiple times, setting up remote again, ...
      Error message: Unable to Load User Agreements  A server error has occurred while downloading  the User Agreements. You must download and agree to the terms of the User Agreements to use this feature or application. Do you want to try to download them again… Unable to Load User Agreements  Sorry, but the User Agreements  can't be downloaded at this time…Please check your internet connection and try again later.    No change when trying over five days.
      Now there is no local company available to service TV. Maybe it's time to send it back and give LG TV a one star rating. I am willing to change motherboards but doubt if LG would go along with that.
      Anyone have any ideas.

      Hi Guys,
      Since short I have a problem seeing Dolby Vision in the Netflix app on my LG Oled C7.
      I was alway able to see on top of every movie when it was streamed in Dolby Vision.
      At this moment the only thing I see is Ultra HD 4K and when I play the movie no Dolby Vision or even HDR.
      I'm from Belgium and I have the latest firmware update.
      I have reset the LG to factory settings twice with no advance.
      I also have the same problem with my connected Amazon Firestick 4K Max, only showing Ultra HD 4K.
      When i play apple tv this shows dolby vision in the information of the movie and when playing I get the dolby vision logo in right top corner.
      Contacted Netflix a couple of time, the answer I get is to wait till the dolby vison information is showing again.
      Any idea,
      Kind regards
