LG 47LS5700 H265 File not playing

My LG 47LS5700 won't play H265 format files. Is there a way to transcode these in Serviio before they being transmitted to the TV?

Yes, H265 can be transcoded to H264 or even MPEG2. Just as a test, try using the Roku TV non-4K profile. It's designed to transcode H.265 to 264 using HLS.

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
