I have a Samsung PN64E550 TV on my network and stream movies to it via Samsung's Allshare - but all I get is a list of the movies on the TV. It works and play fine.

I would like to see the movie summary and thumbnails on the TV.

I have tried Serviio, XBMC and Plex but still get a list of movies and some new folders with other info.

I have tried my Argsosy 335 and a Iomega Screenplay media played but still only get a list.

Any ideas or suggestions.

I don't know exactly what the allshare-app is capable of, but I'm sure it's using DLNA, which isn't that strong on the 'metadata' streaming. It's basically a file browser.
Your best bet to get that polished look is to get a set-top box like popcorn hour, boxee or Dune OR build a HTPC & use XBMC or Plex. They pick up where DLNA leaves off in the metadata department.
