Cannot play any video on xxPFL5907

Attempted using Philips 2009 and 2010 profile but cannot play any AVI, MP4 or MKV files.
From the manual of the TV it only supports
Playable codec : MPEG2, Maximum size of a video : 1920 x 1080, Audio type : AC3, MPEG1 audio layer 3 (MP3), MPEG1 audio layer 2, LPCM over DLNA

The output from device spy gave one line:
http-get:*:video/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=8C100000000000000000000000000000

Attached is the debug log when attempting to play a MP4 and also AVI file. The AVI codec results from gspot is Video: XviD ISO MPEG-4 and Audio: MPEG-1 Layer 3

Does anyone have the basic framework for a profile I can use. If it only plays the AVI I am OK for now, the rest I should be able to add over time.

Thanks

Try with DirecTV profile.

Re: Cannot play any video on xxPFL5907

Tried DirecTV and still it does not play anything. Not even a MPEG-2 test file I have in the folder.
As I was about to pack up the TV to return it, I tried a competing media server and it played everything I could throw at it.
My preference is to stay with Serviio. I have 5 days left before my Pro trial expires and I was hoping to get this Philips TV working as smoothly as my other devices.

Any other help/info you can provide. What can I log/trap on my side?

Thanks

Your log doesn't show playing the file.

Can you capture it again, with a single profile (Philips 2009), and play a mpeg and avi.

Re: Cannot play any video on xxPFL5907

Here is a new log as requested. I attempted multiple plays of the mpeg and AVI file I have in the folder.
I checked the log and it does not look like there is anything specific to playing the files.

SUCCESS:

I finally found something that will work. The following profile will play MPEG-2, AVI, MKV and MP4 files on my Philips 42PFL5907.
I found the WD Live TV profile will at least play MPEG files and that was 1000% more that I had before. This is a stripped down WD Live TV with a few items added.

<Profile id="23" name="Philips xxPFL5907" extendsProfileId="1">
<Detection>
<UPnPSearch>
<ModelName>.*PHILIPS.*</ModelName>
</UPnPSearch>
</Detection>
<ContentDirectoryMessageBuilder>org.serviio.upnp.service.contentdirectory.PacketVideoDLNAMessageBuilder</ContentDirectoryMessageBuilder>
<ProtocolInfo>simple</ProtocolInfo>
<Transcoding>
<Video targetContainer="mpeg" targetVCodec="mpeg2video" targetACodec="ac3" aBitrate="384">
<Matches container="avi" />
<Matches container="matroska" />
<Matches container="mp4" />
</Video>
</Transcoding>
</Profile>

The only issue I now need to resolve is Pause, F-FWD and Rewind.

Thanks for posting this. Worked like a charm for Philips model 39PFL2908 as well!
For reference, incase there are enhanced versions, here was the log I was going to upload in case I didn't find a resolution.
