HP Mediasmart TV

Hi there,

I have had good experiences in the past with Serviio, but unfortunately now some of my movies are grayed out on my TV. Not sure if it's the DLNA profile or not. I had it working, but my server crashed and upon installing the latest version it no longer worked.

Unfortunately I bought this HP TV which stopped being produced shortly after.

Any ideas?

Re: HP Mediasmart TV

Yes, it's likely the profile. Have you tried others?
What type of movies (post MediaInfo details -see sig) and what profile are you using.

Thanks for the quick reply! I tried a couple others but really wasn't sure which direction to go with it. Is there a special restart that's needed from Serviio's side when you change a profile? A forum I read provided a profile for the HP Mediasmart TV, but unfortunately it's for Plex and not Serviio.

I have a range of different types of files, but somehow Serviio worked on all of them in the past.

Here is one that does work:

And here is the profile that I was reading that might work. They say it's based off a Sony Bravia, but switching to that profile didn't change anything for me. Discussion: (Search for the word "HP") https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/73703/working-dlna-profiles/p2
Unfortunately, it's a different structure than that of Serviio.

Re: HP Mediasmart TV

If you edit a profile, you need to either restart the Serviio service, or reboot the computer. If you are only selecting a different profile in the console, then you have to hit the save button twice (once when changing the profile, then again at the bottom of the Status page).

Great, thanks for the explanation. Good news - I went and started some random testing (would've done that in the first place if I thought it made a difference) and Vizio TV appears to have worked! Now to remember this in the future incase I run into it again :)

Re: HP Mediasmart TV

If I remember correctly, the Vizio profile transcodes most videos. Your TV can probably play most of the videos without it, but I'd have to research it more.

I did a quick search and there doesn't seem to be much information available online about exactly what this TV supports. I did find this: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00716154

Video
    Audio Video Interleaved (avi)
    MPEG-1 (mp1, mpeg, mpg)
    MPEG-2 (mp2, mpeg, mpg)
    Microsoft Recorded TV Show (dvr-ms)
    Windows Media Video (wmv, wmv-hd)
    DivX

Music/Audio
    MP3 (mp3)
    PCM (pcm)
    WAV (wav)
    Windows Media Audio (wma, wma-pro)

One major red flag is that it doesn't list AC3 as a supported audio stream. This seems very strange, as AC3 is the audio type used by broadcast TV.
