Samsung + mediatomb another time

    hello. I got samsung TV 2012 year model - UE32ES5500. Mediatomb doesn't play on it (even it doesn't show films list on mediatomb server), but the same mediatomb plays good on TV 2011 year model - UE40D5800.
    I discovered, that UE32ES5500 requests  " : interactive" from mediatomb server, but mediatomb closes connection on this request. How can I solve this problem? How can I make mediatomb to work in "transfermode interactive"?

    Add the following lines to config.xml. Worked for me

      <!- Samsung needs it ->
      <add header=" Streaming"/>
      <add header=" DLNA.ORG_OP=01;DLNA.ORG_CI=0;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000"/>

    I already tried this:

            <add header="X-User-Agent: redsonic"/>
            <add header=" Streaming" />
            <add header=";DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01700000000000000000000000000000" />

    and this one

            <add header="X-User-Agent: redsonic"/>
            <add header=" Streaming" />
            <add header=";DLNA.ORG_CI=0;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01700000000000000000000000000000" />

    I have problems in playing content on a samsung 40D5000, i get this error:
    ERROR: ActionRequest::update(): response is nil, code -115

    I've tried all the methods found on the wiki but without luck… :(

    Did you actaully try my code, it worked for me!!

    The code you gave *will* let Samsung TVs (2011's 6500 model) play videos.  But the problem we're seeing in the 2012 models is media tomb doesn't even give a listing of files - we never even get to the point of playing anything.

    Any ideas?

    OK I have more info now.  My the mediatomb server I ran \\\"tcpdump host -A -w sam.txt\\\" just before I clicked on \\\"MediaTomb\\\" from the AllShare (DLNA) menu.
      - is the IP of my TV and sam.txt is the file where the captured the dump

    Running mediatomb with /etc/mediatomb.conf MT_OPTIONS=\\\"-D\\\" doesn\\\'t show anything.

    Hope this helps!!!
