I installed TVMobili over 1 week ago and was pleasantly surprised to see my TV (a Samsung PN59D7000) easily find and play the external media connected to my MacBook Pro. "Wow! That was easy," was my reaction.
Well, yesterday morning I updated the firmware on my TV to version 1009.2. because every time I launched SmartHub, I was greeted with this annoying message about needing to update my firmware. Well, okay, I thought; so I downloaded the update from Samsung's website and installed it on my TV from a USB flash drive as directed.
To my dismay, when I launch my SmartHub and now select "Video", "Photos" or "Music", I am given the following message: "There is no device connected." My TV can't find my computer which is running TV Mobili or my media now!
A couple of important facts: 1) My TV IS visible to my router; I checked and its MAC addresses shows up as a network device; 2) also, my TV IS able to connect to the internet; 3) TV Mobili runs fine, but there are no "discovered devices" listed under the Status menu; I read in a previous post where someone asked another user if their device shows up in TV Mobili; mine does not; 4) I do not have a firewall setup and there are no ports blocked.
What can I do? How can I restore the connection between my TV and my computer and media. Can I easily downgrade my firmware since it was working before? Is that a viable/ good option? The benefit of accessing my media across my wireless network with TVMobili was amazing and now I really need some help to restore its functionality.
Can someone confirm if there firmware update does in fact break this functionality?
Thanks in advance!
P.S. This forum is amazing. I've learned so much over the past four weeks and read enough informative discussions that gave me a lot of confidence in buying my Samsung plasma two weeks ago.
