    Hello

    I've bought a Sharp Aquos LED / LCD TV (model LC-40LE814E) with DLNA support.
    From this TV I can browse in MediaTomb folder but, as soon as I try to open a file (video or music) : I receive a message "empty content"
    I try to tune MediaTomb XML configuration file without success ….
    I try also to test with other DLNA servers: the only one that was correctly accepted by this TV is Mezzo. Mezzo has a builtin driver for Sharp Aquos TVs. But this software is only available on a Windows computer: I want to use it on my Linux/fedora server.

    Does anybody has experimented MediaTomb with a Sharp Aquos  TV?

    More details on Sharp Aquos compatibility with "Home network server" (copy from Sharp User Manual):
    - Photo file format: JPEG (DCF 2.0 compliant / Progressive format jpeg files are not supported.)
    - Music file format: LPCM
    - Video file format: MPEG2-TS & MPEG2-PS (Some video file formats may not be played depending on the file)
    Video definition is: 1,920 x 1,080 x 4 dots

    Thanks for your help

    Hello

    Hi Pierre,

    I'm sorry to tell you that I've no answer for your problem, but the same one, I'd like to share with you, and see if you could solved it.

    Yesterday I've purchased an Aquos Quatron LC46LE814E TV, DLNA 100% certified, but this feature is NOT working.
    I've used the following media servers (running on Mac OS X and Linux, Fedora 14)
    Twonky Media Server (this is the only one my TV is connecting to)
    Vuze
    Rivet
    Serviio
    Playback
    Ushare

    As I've stated, my TV is not seeing any of those servers, but Twonky, whilst my PS3 can see and thus connect (as well as reproduce its content) to all of them.
    When I connect to Twonky, I can browse its folders, but when it comes to a folder with audio and / or video content, I always get the error "No data available", so it can never get to list my folder contents neither play it, of course.
    As a funny test, I've reproduced this folder/files architecture within a USB stick and TV has no problem listing content neither playin it.

    The funniest thing is that I've contacted Sharp support and they've told me this TV is DLNA certified on Windows 7 only, but this is never stated neither in the specs nor the doc of the TV.

    Could you find a solution to this? Many thanks in advance for your time and help.
    Cheers,
    Amaya

    Hi Amaya & Edward

    I'm using a server on Linux / FEDORA 14

    With MediaTomb
    it's very difficult for the TV to see the server: I have to launch the search function minimum 5 times to see it (Blue then 5 x Yellow touches)
    Perhaps it's due to the port used? I will test with another port.
    I finally had success in converting video files (AVI or MKS) but not with Photos and Music (FLAC & MP3)
    I'm waiting additional responses from Sharp Customer Service to have the full specification of supported formats (including Mime Type and UPNP Class)

    With MiniDLNA: it was OK for Photos (JPG) and MPEG Video files but we have no chance to read other formats because MiniDLNA don't have transcoding functionality.

    I also tried MEZZMO on WINDOWS: It was able to transcode correctly Videos, Photos and Music (FLAC & MP3): MEZZMO has a native profile for Sharp TV (http://www.conceiva.com/products/mezzmo/devicesupport.asp).
    But I don't use it because it's not available on Linux, it can't manage my other DLNA devices and … it's not free of charge even if it's not expensive (US$30)

    Regards
    Pierre

    The funniest thing is that I've contacted Sharp support and they've told me this TV is DLNA certified on Windows 7 only, but this is never stated neither in the specs nor the doc of the TV

    I send also a request to Sharp technical Support to know why we can read AVI, MKV or MP3 files when connecting a USB key and not when using DLNA connection.
    I hope we can hope for a future Firmware patch to solve it!
    I'm waiting for a response from Japanese head-office

    Concerning Windows 7: French technical support said they only have locally tested DLNA with "Windows Media Player" (server) on Windows Vista and with files natively supported by the TV (that they send to me): WAV and MPEG2 (.mpg)

    Thanks for your reply, Pierre,

    I've now tried it with Windows 7 (as suggested by Sharp) and Wild Media Server, and still same problem… also tried Mezzmo (which explicitly has compatibility with Sharp Aquos TV) and my Aquos can not even see it!!!

    Can you provide me the Japanese email you're trying to contact with? Maybe if they get more questions, we can get them do something…

    Many thanks in advance,
    Amaya

    Hello Amaya

    I don't have email for the Japanese Technical Service. I have called and sent email to the local helpdesk in France: they said they transfered my issues to Japan ….

    Hi Pierre,

    thanks for your help.

    You've said you've got Mezzmo working, can you tell me how do you exactly get this working? Cause I can not even make both devices to see each other.

    I've just called Sharp Spain support and they've told me it does work on windows 7, and if I don't get this working, then my TV is broken… isn't it a little too strange to connect to server and explore folders and say this is broken?

    Many thanks in advance,
    Amaya

    Hello Amaya

    Mezzmo worked without any particular setting: everything was OK on the 1st attempt (it was on Windows XP and I use RJ45 cabling: I don't have made any test with WIFI connection).
    But the trial period for my Mezzmo has expired: I can't renew the test to give you more information
    Perhaps you have a hardware problem, or an error on Ethernet connexion / network setting: is it possible for you to use "Internet TV" function?

    Regards
    Pierre

    Hi Pierre,

    now I'm at the office, thus I can not test Mezzmo, will test firewall, port and logs, and see what happens, thanks for your help.

    I don't think it's a HW problem, as I can comunicate with others and browse its content…

    Doing nothing special is not working for me with Mezzmo… and thus is a little damage, cause what I really want is to have this working with my Linux… but at least I need to test that it can work!!!

    Thanks again for your time and help, will be back to you :)

    Cheers,
    Amaya

    Hi Amaya

    On the Mezzmo control screen you can see the connected devices but I don't remember if I needed to say that my device is a Sharp Aquos TV… http://www.conceiva.com/products/mezzmo/images/screenshot4-thumb.jpg

    On the TV remote, after entering in "Local Network" menu, you must select the server with the Blue key then, if needed, scan the network with the Yellow key (with Mediatomb now, I need to launch the scan minimum 5 times before success)

    Regards
    Pierre

    Hi Pierre,
    From twonkymedia team I got message that it does not support Sharp Aquos TV.
    For Windows there is free and fully functional HomeMediaServer, but there is no version for *nix platform ;(
    Have you tried this product http://fuppes.ulrich-voelkel.de ?

    Hi Edward

    I don't tried FUPPES

    For MediaTomb, I've found a configuration fully operational but only for videos

    For Photos, it's OK with MiniDLNA but with MediaTomb I receive a message "Empty content" when browsing a folder.
    I've tried to adjust the same configuration for those 2 servers without success.
    Here is an example (with UPnP Inspector) for the same photo: I can't see any significant difference but only the MiniDLNA link (bottom in blue) is valid ….

    Hi.
    I was truly happy when I found this thread because the LC-40LE824E has been driving me mad for some days now. My problem is that I can't get the TV get to see FUPPES, MediaTomb, or Rygel. The one thing that works is minidlna. But that offers no transcoding - and is therefore useless.

    Since this is probably a network config thing -  could you please tell me how your network is set up (wireless, wired; which port, TV with fixed IP). Or has anyone received clues from the sharp technicians as to how the visibility thing can be solved? (I contacted Sharp Germany, but so far, no answer).

    Thanks a lot!
    Bernie

    Hi Bernie

    My network is wired (with TV & Server on the same subnet), TV use DHCP to have an IP
    I don't change the MediaTomb default port: it's 50500
    As previously said, I have to launch the network scan on the TV minimum 5 times before I can see the server (with MiniDLNA it's OK on the 1st attempt)

    Perhaps, as a trial, you can just copy and paste my configuration file (just change the shares …)

    I'm still waiting specifications from Sharp Customer Service in France …

    Regards
    Pierre

    Hi,
    Today I`ve managed to connect my 40LE924E to mediatomb. I`ve used above config file from post #15. The key was the wired connection (only TV, mediatomb server was connected by wifi) + route add -net 239.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 <device> + ifconfig <device> allmulti multicast. TV didn`t respond to ARP REQUEST sent by linux machine running mediatomb via wireless connection.

    Hello

    I received today a response from Sharp technical Support in France:

    We don't have information concerning DLNA specifications for our TVs: mimetype, upnp class,…

    I didn't still met success to read photos and audio files!
