Photos showing on NAS drive but not displaying on TV/Tablets

Post by Andyg » Mon Jun 10, 2013 11:52 am

Hi all,

I really hope you can all help me, ive recently setup my nas drive at home as normal i have not tweaked anything i also have a samsung smart TV which is DLNA so it can see my NAS drive the problem i have is that one folder out of the 9 folders i have of photographs will display correctly on the TV / ipad / iphone with out any problems but the other folders with the pictures are not showing up correctly, even though when you enter the folder you can see the various picture files it shows that files are present with the correct file name but the size of the files are 0 bytes, which is incorrect as when i access the files via PC i get all the correct size files and am able to view them. so my thoughts are is this something to do with the "Thumbs.db" file which is auto generated initially when you import pictures from your SD card over to your PC?

ANY HELP WHAT SO EVER WOULD BE BRILLIANT. I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR TIME IN THIS.

THANK YOU,

Andy.

Have you enabled DLNA for all the folders in the http frontend?

Point your browser to http://NASIPHERE/ and click on folders. (substitute NASIPHERE for the ip address or hostname of your nas)
You can force a rescan by going to system or by going to http://NASIPHERE:9000/rpc/rescan

Hi!
I have the same problem and I think is a problem of resolution.
With the computer I can see all my picture, but my Ipad and my Samsung TV can't display the picture over 4000 px. Try to resize the image and if someone help us to resolve this problem...
