Back in October I was shopping for a new TV, it was between Samsung and Sony models. I eventually went with Sony, but mainly because of the monolithic design and because Samsung sells so many models I couldn't figure them out.
Well, I'm quite unhappy about my 55NX720... I don't even go into my living room anymore because looking at the Bravia depresses me to no end.
I'm a techie, so picture quality was only part of the deal for me when picking a model. This TV has good picture quality and design, sure... but the apps are a joke, the browser is slower than a computer on a 14.4k modem, the Android and iOS remote apps are problematic - but worst of all DLNA might as well be non-existant, I can't stream anything over my network.
At this point I've made peace with every shortcoming expect that I cannot really stream any videos. I'm on a wired connection on both ends, I have tried both my PC on Windows 7 and MacBook on OSX Lion as streamers, I have used both PS3 Media Server and TVersity to transcode on the host machine...
I still only get a few seconds of video playback at first before the Bravia craps out and tells me the video is unavailable. This is coming off an i7 desktop with a dedicated Radeon card that is hardwired into my home network and I still can't even stream SD files off my PC, so I have no choice but to blame everything on the Bravia.
Please help, I'm not a cable TV kinda guy so not being able to stream anything off my PC makes this expensive TV totally useless for me.
