Limit to number of media files and nested folders?

I have a Samsung Model UN55MU6300F Smart TV and a Windows 7 Pro laptop with 8 GB RAM running Serviio 2.1. In My Music I have 8,331 Files in 663 Folders, mostly ripped CDs I play on the TV. Recently I added 2,283 new Files in 150 Folders, many nested 4 folders deep. Now I'm finding that when I go to play some of these recently added albums in deeper folders, some of the cover graphics don't show on the TV for the albums and songs. But when I added another CD in a new artist folder, the cover graphics showed fine. Is this a limitation of Serviio reading deeply nested folders, my TV, or my computer?

Re: Limit to number of media files and nested folders?

If I had to guess, I would say it's a TV limitation. If you have Serviio Pro (or are within 15 days of your last update) you could look at your files in MediaBrowser. If it were a Serviio limitation it would look the same as you are seeing on the TV.

But to be fair, I think Samsung stinks with their DLNA functionality. I gave up using the TV's player many years ago, and instead use an external player, such as a Roku, Shield or Blu Ray player. But many BD players are reducing their DLNA playback abilities as well.

LG NANO85 4K TV, Samsung JU7100 4K TV, Sony BDP-S3500, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Insignia Roku TV, Roku Ultra, Premiere and Stick, Nvidia Shield, Yamaha RX-V583 AVR.
Primary server: Intel i5-6400, 8 gig ram, Windows 10 Pro, 22 TB hard drive space | Test server Windows 10 Pro, AMD Phenom II X4 965, 8 gig ram
