Sony Bravia XG9005

Post by stormy » Tue Jun 11, 2019 3:49 am

Hi,

I have a new 2019 49" Sony Bravia KD-49XG9005 (Android TV)) with Oreo and am really struggling to get consistent performance (either files stop playing part way through, pause or I get "cannot play video" type messages), it appears to be unknown so I have tried using the Sony Bravia XD/XE config file with varying degrees of success.

I also have my old KD-49XE9005 (Also Android TV) now in another room (although this is still running Nougat as I have not gotten around to updating the firmware).

I have uploaded a log file for the XG here https://www.universalmediaserver.com/fo ... 526#p39526 but in the meantime I thought I would ask a general question about the XG performance or if I need to use a different config file and not the XD/XE one, for some reason lots of files the XE can play I get "cannot play file" errors with the XG or I get either pausing video or crashing playback with XG using UMS with either a default renderer or the XD/XE one.

Interestingly the XE in another room which is on the same network works much better, plays all files, doesn't pause or stop playing halfway through videos. Both TVs are on a hardwired on the same gigabit network (although the TVs themselves only have 100Mbps ports).

Cheers,

stormy

In desperation I tried Plex as I just could not get UMS working with this TV properly or reliably. While I don't really like Plex as a permanent solution installing it on my PC and just using the standard native video app on the XG (as I do with UMS, not the Plex app) it was flawless, could play 4K videos with no issue, FF and RW and managed to sit through complete episodes of TV programs with no pausing or dropout.
