Re: Compatible devices list

Hello,
I have had Serviio for only a couple of days and so far I am very impressed with what I see. It is my goal to have it replace my aging Plex server.
I have Serviio running on a mac mini with 18TB (yup, that'ts not a typo eighteen teras of firewire 800 drive arrays ).
So far I can report success with the following devices.

  • Denon AVR-3313CI (Audio Only)
  • LG 42LV5500 TV
Things I am looking forward to:

    1. Denon AVR to recognize and play movies as well.
    2. The LG TV did not allow me to select alternate languages for the movies being played. The audio language section was greyed out. But the library was still rebuilding at the time, so I don't know if that made a difference.
    3. A better front end to the library. The "one thing", I loved about Plex was the client ability to add beautifully designed skins. Maybe Serviio can do that too. I just haven't seen any.
Keep up the good work guys. Thanks.

You do realise the Denon and basically every AVR only do audio streaming?

If you can find anywhere on this page that says it can stream videos please let me know

it'd be cool if we could compile a list of devices that can connect to Serviio and work properly with it. Just reply to this topic with your observations.

Serviio workes great with my philips bdp,sony bravia 2011,xbmc,my ps3 and I also added a profile for my netgem netbox, all work fantastic. To add serviio was the only server that worked perfect I tried them all believe me, mezzmo,ps3 media server,universal media server,tversity,tvmobili, isedora and plex. :) do not waist your time trying all these out just use serviio.

Re: Compatible devices list

Hello,

I recently bought a Samsung 5 series Smart TV (UE42F5300) and googled a while for a decent DLNA server until I found serviio. Everything works out of the box, great job.
My homeserver is a HP Microserver N36L with Debian Linux, fortunately all the videos I have can be played backed on the TV without transcoding - and all the subtitles appear to be working without problems.

I faced a little bug when I changed the folder view in the TV DLNA options (I cannot explain, I was poking in the menu, trying to get familiar with the options) which prevented to use the Source -> AllShare (server) -> Videos section, where the TV started to drop a strange error message. But the workaround is to use AllShare (server) -> All content.

I can post about it in the next days, if zip wants to mess with it, it's just more strange than annoying. I haven't found that what this "view feature" is exacly for, but will take a look into the manual again.

best,

Daniel

Re: Compatible devices list

so far all the Samsung's have worked for us any thing newer than 2012 seems to work from them.
the new sharp dose not work very well we put a 60 in and it will find the serviio but it dose not play well with it.
try to forward and it locks up and gives you the black screen of death. it also will not play the first time takes several attempts.

Serviio Version: PRO v 1.0.1

Yes, I know that the version is out of date. I downgraded after discovering that the New and Improved version removed my ability to Add Renderer. This was, I think, a mistake. It is one thing to add features but it is Hubris to think that your new version will find all devices. It does not find iOS devices worth a damn. I hope a future release restores this functionality on a Permanent basis.

[...and if you have not already guessed...]

Devices:

Apple iPad v. 3 (the limited release between v. 2 and the so-called Retina Display version. My iPad has Retina Display and the only difference is the plug is the old style plug).

- I had to add my device which was extremely simple.
- Client is AirPlayer
- It plays all my media served from 6 3 TB drives on my Laptop; AVI, MP4, MKV, MPeG (2), and all image libraries.
- Some of my media is not meant for children. I have to set my Parent Approved media paths to Limited and the devices (LG BDxxx, X-Box, PS3) to Limited which is sort of a pill. I would prefer not to have to constantly moniter when any devices connect but it works so I deal with it.

Apple iPhone 5
- same as above.

After reading a few other posts on Apple devices I feel it necessary to point out that I have NEVER had these devices set to Transcode. I use AirPlayer and set the codec plugin to FFmpeg and EVERYTHING plays (frankly, it all plays on Default but I switched to FFmpeg as a precaution).
Sometimes we must Change what we cannot Accept.

So I tried this on my iPad 4 with AirPlayer.

First I got the same, but then realized the device was already in the console and disabled. I enabled it and it appeared in the player. I then tried to remove the device from the console and hit refresh - didn't show again. For it to appear again, I had to hit the refresh button in AirPlayer. It then made a new request to get the server description and it appeared in the device list in the console. HTH

Samsung BD-5300 works great with serviio. Love the tools menu that allows you to move to a certain time in most videos.

Re: Compatible devices list

WoW! cable's media player that is part of their Ultra-TV whole-home dvr package. Had to scrape the device profile from the forum and change the ID number to something that didn't match an existing one, but it seems to be working well now. The positioning controls are kind of clunky (no FF, just jump a few seconds or about 10 minutes), but the convenience of being an already-on device with the same remote as needed for tv viewing means I probably won't use the alternative devices any more (Sony blu-ray. PS3, Visio google tv, each with their own quirks).

These things are the same as what Arris sold as extenders for their 'Moxi' dvr except that they have the networking built in with MoCA over coax (theoretically 200+Mbs) and don't need anything extra to access media servers on the LAN connected to the gateway/dvr box. The Wow version can use up to 5 of the media players.

Re: Compatible devices list

Hi,

First time posting... I have been using Serviio 1.2.1 for about a month now (free version, as I do not really need the extra resources). I am running it using the supplied generic LG TV/Blu-Ray profile Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, and using Devolo HomePlugs dLan 200 AVplus to connect the router to the equipment in the lounge (TV, Blu-Ray and Sky box), on my LG 42LM3450 3D LED tv, and it is superb. It handles full HD video files, 3D files (both SBS and OU/TAB), and I've never had any stuttering or freezing. The only problem is that the tv cannot handle DTS soundtracks, so I use Popcorn MKV AudioConverter to demux, transcode, and then remux the files before transferring them to my media drive.

I find Serviio simple to use (at least the parts that I need!), and it does exactly what I need. Thank you for making it freely available.

Re: Compatible devices list

Using Serviio with the following devices in order of frequency...
    1) WDTVLive x2 - Plays virtually everything (videos and music) except image files larger than 4096x4096
    2) Toshiba REGZA 55WL800A - fails about 35% of the time
    3) PS3 - fails about 30% of the time
    4) XBOX 360 - fails about 35% of the time
    5) Panasonic Bluray Player DMP-BDT110 - fails about 50% of the time

I'm most likely to just get WDTVLive boxes for all rooms in the house. It just works with everything! Amazing for such a tiny thing.

Re: Compatible devices list

Currnetly being used to play media from my PC to my Pioneer BCS-222 home cinema...... works great although Im starting to look at using online stuff with it but so far only managed to get a sopcast stream to play...... It probably can play more but not had a lot of time plus I really need an idiots guide as streaming is hitherto unkown to me !

Re: Compatible devices list

Philips 40pfl7605 TV here...

It works like charm, the only problems come with sound (when multiple audio tracks) and subtitles (if they are not burned into the film they are never shown).

Serviio 1.4 now and Windows 7 in the "server" pc.

Keep up the good work!
