    Hi,

    Have you experienced problems with the DLNA functionality of TV LED 46VL748 ?
    This utility works well with Photos and Music but does not support any SD Video like simple AVI or MP4 (tested with DivX3, DivX6 and AVC)
    I have a NAS (QNAP TS-439) with UPNP Twonkymedia server running and Videos are playing well with other UPNP client like my iPhone (with Twonky Mobile) or my PC.
    I have the latest firmware already installed on my TV.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Phil

    Hi

    Userís manuals - http://www.toshiba-om.net/LCD/PDF/English/VL748-4046-English.pdf

    If you check userís manuals on page 52 you will find a list of all supported formats for DLNA playback.
    As I can see mp4 is listed there but there is also remark that some files may not be played.
    What does it mean exactly?
    Because of the huge encoding on format options, which exist in the market, TOSHIBA cannot guarantee, that each file-type mentioned in the list, will also work in practice.

    What you can try is to transfer your files into other supported format listed in manuals and test the functionality again.

    Firmware upgrade will not help much. Decoder chips used in TVs are embedded and limited to its specification. Fact is that these decoder chipsets cannot be upgraded afterwards.

    Please try to change files format and test it again. It would be nice if you can send some feedback.

    Tested files are encoded with DivX3, 4, 5, 6 and AVC

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...
    Thanks,

    UP:
    Sames files on a USB flashdrive are working perfectly.
    I've tried another DLNA server (TVMobili) and still unable to play any video file.

    Avoid using 46VL748 if you want to use DLNA functions...
    1200 Euros is definitively a high price to not be able to play a simple AVI file :-(

    Any fix ?
    Thanks for your help everybody...
