I recently got a QNAP TS-219P+ NAS, which has TwonkyMedia built-in (version 5.1.6, I think). A primary application was to be streaming videos to Panasonic Viera plasma TVs, including a couple of TC-P42ST30s I already have, via DLNA. I found this version would connect with the TVs reasonably quickly and display JPEG photos just fine, but when I pulled up a 1080i MPEG-2 video file, the TV misidentified it as MP4, and when I tried to play it the screen just went blank and stayed that way. This happened on both TVs. (I should add that it all worked fine when I used a Samsung Blu-ray player as the DMP.)
After floundering about for a bit, I finally installed and enabled version 6.0.33 of the TwonkyMedia plug-in. This enabled me to play the video on the TVs, but with poor quality -- lots of tearing and jerkiness. Plus, it took an excruciatingly long time for the TVs to find the TwonkyMedia server. (Again, everything was ducky with the Samsung Blu-ray player in the loop.) The TVs have the latest firmware installed. Is there anything I can do to fix these problems?
One other, much lesser complaint: TwonkyMedia does not automatically unsqueeze 1440 x 1080 HDV video to 16:9.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
