MP3 via Media Server stops after 30 seconds
« on: May 11, 2009, 04:01:08 am »
   

Hello,

I have the Linkstation Live BT 1TB. I use the DLNA Server with a Sony Bravia 40W4500 as DLNA Client. Everything works fine but when I start a MP3 it stops after 30 - 60 seconds with the Message "Account not available"

 

I don't think it's a problem with the Network or the TV because the same setup works without any issue when i use Twonky Media Server on a PC.

 

Is there something known about this?

 

Thanks, Kind regards

Rengel

Difficult to say but you could try messing with the Twonky settings by going to http://[IP_Address_of_NAS]:9050 and see if there's any settings there that could help.

Hi

I have the same problem with my BRAVIA KDL 40V5500 (bought last week) and my BUFFALO Linkstation mini.

Additionaly MPEG Fromats are shown in the file lists but any try to play them ends up with "Playback not available" ( in German:"Wiedergabe nicht möglich" ).

The MP3 Problem seems to depend to the bitrate. 

 

QUOTATION START:

.. so I did some further tests with mps files converted at different rates.

The playback limit changes accordingly.....
16 kbps - plays through to the end
128 kbps - plays to 40 seconds
192 kbps - plays to 60 seconds
So it's kbps related !! 

QUOTATION END

 

It is shure a general problem that regards all SONY BRAVIA DLNA TV Clients (KDL 40...) in combination with Buffalo NAS Devices. 

 

Read also in this forum about the prob:

http://www.readynas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=24546

Someone there wrote that the prob doesn't exist with a PSP.

I hope BUFFALO will fix this problem soon!

We've had reports of this but that series of television seem to have trouble with embedded media servers built into any device, not just ours it also apparently affects netgear models as well as others.

 

That being the case I'm not really sure this is an issue  on our end, but our engineers are aware of it.

Oh yes, it is an issue your side. It might be a problem with the Build in DLNA Server (Twonky) but even than you have to fix the issue.

   After several postings in other forums and after some e-mail corresponence with the SONY Support they called me back (Respect!) and told me the problem doesn't occur in their test environment. The only difference is that they use the twonky ver 5 instead of my 4.4.8. The problem is now how to update my linkstation mini from twonky 4.4.8 to twonky 5. Does anybody have a solution?

The Twonky Media Server is embedded in the firmware and unfortunately I have no information on when this will be updated. Please keep an eye on the download page of our website for a firmware update.

It says unsupported so I would say use at your own risk.

Hello,

 

now there is a new Firmware available but not for mine LS-CHL.

 

The Version is 1.21 but I'll need at least Version 1.10 on the LS-CHL to upgrade it. My Firmware is Version 1.07.

 

So there is still no fix available!!!

 

Regards Rengel

   After some investigation it appears the faulty lies mainly with the TV, it is due to the client receiving it in packets as apposed to a constent stream and this seems to be causing a permanent "buffering effect". I'll update when i get more info.
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

Firmware1.21 is for the new version.  anything with firmware pre 1.10 is the old verion apparently.

Updating from 1.10 to 1.21 increased the amount that was playing for me from 24 seconds to 1min 3 seconds on the same file but it still stops.

 

I'm using a Bravia KDL-37W5710 and a LinkStation Live LS-CH1.0TL.

 

So the new firmware doesn't solve it either. :(

   Hello, I don't think that Buffalo will ever fix this ERROR in their product.! For me his was my first and last Buffalo Product forever. Now I've connected a USB Disk to my Fritz Box and use this as Media Server for my Bravia and it works fine. Which is another hint that the error is inside the Buffalo Firmware and NOT a Sony Problem. Kind Regards
