I have a problem with my movies on my external harddrives.
I have 4x 1TB WD MyBooks E edition.
I hooked them up to my NetGear WNDR3700.
It shows up fine on my 3D bluray player, and it lists them all fine.
But some how it doesnt want to play my MKV files.
Avi and mpeg files are fine, but says the files are not supported when i try play the mkv files.
I also tried the "server" option, with samsungs software, they play fine though there.
But, the software is poor. I have so many movies it times out or something.
It just stops making database files along the way.
Tryed adding them slow, like a small bunch at a time, still cant seam to add em all. Like the player has a maximum amount of files it can add.
Anyone have the same problem, or does anyone know what i can do?
Ofcause, i want problem 1 solved before 2, as its the best option for me.
The player doesn't support MKV over network. If you want to play MKV files, hook up a small USB powered external HDD to the USB port located on the front of the drive. I have a 500GB Toshiba External (laptop size drive) that i hook up to it, and it plays MKV files beautifully.
So on to my issue..
I have the full samsung package.. the player, the 3D LED TV and the AV Receiver.. Seems every once in a great while, everything blacks out (audio a well) and the TV shows the video input it is on quickly and then the video and audio come back fine.. in the span of about 5 seconds. Anyone else experience this?
Is Youtube screwed up for anyone else? After logging into the samsung Internet @TV i go to youtube, and it no longer pulls up my account, it shows me some favorites of what i can only guess is a person who is a fan of Korean culture and then when i search, i get no results. I've checked my real youtube account, and everything is fine, i've reinstalled the app and still get the same thing.
Plus, has anyone heard of being able to hook up an external text input device, like akeyboard or something similar to the XBOX keyboard? it gets tiring trying to search for videos having to text it on the standard remote.
