I have recently taken delivery of a Panasonic TX-P42GT30 Plasma TV with media streaming capabilities. In fact the media streaming in this TV is supposed to be one of the best of the market for built technology in TV's.
However after starting the media streaming on the TV and linking to the Synology box with no issues (it even shows the synology icon in the list of active hardware) it played the files just fine but to my surprise the film stopped after 19m 17secs, so i tried the same file again and the same thing. I tried a different file and every time the files stop just before 20 minutes.
First i thought it was hibernation which was enabled for 20 minutes so i extended this to 1hr and still they stop before 20mins.
I tried the files on the TV locally via usb and they play fine and for the duration, a lot longer than 20 mins. I then tried it from a windows PC via MP12 and this played the files for the duration of the films as well so it all points to something on the NAS box but what?
I have the DS410 on a Cat5e structure wiring network (Krone cabling) and a netgear GS608 v3 and i get very good performance to the box with write speeds of about 30-45Mb and read faster its not that.
The files just pause and then go back to the Panasonic media screen and says "Connection To The Server Failed" so for some reason the NAS is disconnecting just before 20 mins?
Any ideas guys there doesn't seem to be many settings for the Media Server.
