Hello,

I have a sony bravia ex500, when i want to play most of the mkv files like black sea, Captain America- Civil War, Casse Tête Chinois for example, TV is displaying "unable to temporarily access the server. Please try again" something like that, it's not possible to watch a movie.

I dunno who is responsible for the .conf files since version 6.72 but the have buggered them for the Sony EX series since version 6.72. The renderer is totally wrong now. You can either download version 6.72 or earlier or try adding this to the
"Sony-BraviaEX.conf" file

Code: Select all

TranscodeExtensions = dvr-ms,dvr,mkv,dv,ty,mov,ogm,hdmov,hdm,rmv,rmvb,rm,asf,evo,asx,flv,m2v,mpe,mod,tivo,ty,tmf,ts,tp,m2p,mp4,m4v,avi,wmv,wm,divx,div,flac,mlp,fla,wma,m4a,aac,dts,mka,ape,ogg,shn,mpc,ra,mp2,wv,oma,aa3,gif,png,arw,cr2,crw,dng,raf,mrw,nef,pef,tif,tiff
That should get your TV back to listing the Avi files and a whole lot more you probably never realised it had stopped listing.

Ive no idea why they removed it as its required to get anything other than MP2 and SOME MKV files to play back. I used to visit here quite regularly and even helped get FFMPEG working better than it did on Sony Bravias. I do not bother upgrading any more, more issues seem to come along release to release than problems are solved.

Because it recent versions of UMS SonyEX devices will by default only playback MPEG2 and some .MP4 extension files files which your MKV files probably are not. (more than likely MP4/X264 codec but not extension) based.

Adding what i mentioned if you understand how to the SonyEX.conf file should fix the issue but you have claimed it has not so if you try an older version which i as a Sony owner know works with MKV files that will confirm or deny if it is a problem for you in the Newer UMS versions or if it is an setup issue your end.

Maybe try version 7.5.0 since we are getting reports of connection problems in 7.6+

With the v7.5.0 it doesn't work but with the v7.4.0 it works without adding "TranscodeExtensions = ..."
