PN50B650 DLNA no fast forward / rewind?

by yenic - 8/5/09 5:54 PM

I'm loving this tv... and very pleased with my decision to buy a Samsung.. I was sold on the idea of getting a Panasonic until really reading the reviews on the plasmas here at Cnet and finding all the features they packed into the Samsung. Seeing it in person put it in my mind up there with the best looking tvs you can find.

The only real flaw I've found with this tv so far is there is no fast forward or rewind when streaming videos through DLNA. I really enjoy this feature.. it's the one that probably tipped me over to the Samsung and this is a major disappointment.

Another concern that I haven't tested yet, is if when you add files to your PC if you have to rescan the folder and/or stop/start the Samsung media server to see the new files on the tv.

If there is any way around these problems, especially the FF/RWD issue please let me know. Otherwise I hope this is fixed or being fixed in firmware updates since at least the 2009 models should have this? I could understand if I'd gotten an older model but from my research this has existed through a couple generations now.

I should note that I'm also buying (pretty sure I'm buying) the Samsung HT-BD8200 when it becomes available.. this is a $800 purchase and I'd like to become a loyal Samsung customer. Normally I wouldn't raise a stink or register on a forum to make a note of this, but FF/RWD on the USB and not through the network is pretty silly and nearly useless.

If this isn't fixed or being worked on, I more than likely will be forced to pickup a PS3 (for bluray and media streaming) and a Sony HT-CT100 soundbar.
I really don't want to have to go that route as going with all the Samsung equipment is almost perfect if they could just add FF/RWD to DLNA.

Looking for more information so I can complete my home theater, thanks in advance
