If I manually copy 4.02.62 on a USB and update my firmware.. will I loose my Local dimming and THX settings that I unlocked in ezmenu? Also will I loose my video tweaks? I've spent all week adjusting to my liking. I'd hate to loose all that on an update.
I've been having the TV disconnect/crash from DLNA when streaming high-rez movies (BDrips/3D). So I decided to manually upgrade to 4.02.62 to see if it's any better.
USB upgrade when well, I did not loose my THX video modes, local dimming, trumotion menus, or my custom video settings. So it's safe to upgrade for those who've made changes from ezmenu.
DLNA works a little bit better.. it sometimes soft-fails back to the DLNA menu, but it still randomly disconnects completely (Throws you back to TV tuner). DLNA implementation is buggy, I searched and saw lots have disconnect issues. No known fix.
I tried different DLNA servers on my Mac (Rivet/Playback/iSedora), they all have various issues. iSedora works the best and is the fastest, but the TV will still disconnect. Only seems to happen on large high-rez files.
Example, open a BDrip with 5.1 audio and start FFx32. If you can make it all the way thru without the TV disconnecting from DLNA, let me know your setup!
I'm on pure Wifi N 5Ghz, static IPs on both server and TV. I also tried 2.4Ghz G/N network and DHCP.. no matter what I try, the TV will randomly disconnect before I can finish a movie.
PS3 does not have any problem, so it's a TV software issue as far as I can tell.
UPDATE - Had a chat with an LG support rep today, he's going to escalate and see if there is a file size limit. I've also asked they they test DLNA streaming of large 1080p content, FF thru it and see if the TV disconnects. The spec sheet says 1080p DLNA is supported, so I'm hoping they look into it.
