Quote from: Mr. Analog on May 10, 2022, 07:18:54 AMUpdate on the BluRay player, turns out it DOES have network share compatibility but you have to download and install the media player package for DiskStation for it to be visible to the LG. Vastly annoying. I prefer the old model where you could just traverse the network in a kind of network browser.

Also there was an update to DSM I had to install so it took me longer than usual to get everything working (argh)

So they removed SMB and you are using something like DLNA now or does the blueray player have an app store for the Video station app?

AFAIK it's DLNA-based

Quote from: Mr. Analog on May 07, 2022, 04:00:35 PMSo I bought a new LG BluRay player and I'm unimpressed

Build quality is cheap and there's no network browser. It is region free at least

So you think you will keep it or return it?
I'm going to keep both players and see how things shake out. So far I've had no skipping on the new player which is a big improvement. As for the lack of a network browser I might not need it if the Amazon Firestick has Plex on it

Also looks like channel 11 is 100% clear?
I'm thinking either the software is bugged or for some reason one or both of the aps are? I'm pretty sure there are other networks on 11. not many, but I do see a couple when using Wifi Analyzer on my phone. And that weird wide one isn't actually wide on my phone. So weird.
