Black screen when choosing Serviio from main menu on TV.

I have a Samsung 75" 4k TV and have been using Serviio with it just fine for probably 2 years now.
Just this passed week whenever I choose serviio from the onscreen menu the screen just goes blank like it's not doing anything.

If I turn on my Samsung Blu Ray player and choose Serviio using that everything works fine.
It's just strange that it's worked all this time and now is having issues.

I turned the TV off and on again, same with the computer, changed the IP of the TV.

If serviio were an APP i would try uninstalling it on the TV like I have to do with HBO GO now and then when it messes up/gets corrupted.
But serviio is just another source basically so I can't do that.

Anyone have this happen to them?

No, I haven't seen that happen. It sounds like Samsung issued a firmware update that broke something with DLNA. It wouldn't be the first time Samsung broke something with an update. I no longer even use the Samsung app for accessing my server. I either use my Sony BD player (which gives me HD audio) or a Roku player. For all its smart apps, I seldom use any of them.

Panasonic ST30 Plasma, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku 4, Ultra and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 18 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram
