Issue to communicate Wi-FI between LG Smart TV and Linux box
by suusik - 5/29/12 7:46 AM
I'm using Plex Media Server on my Ubuntu 11.10 and using Wi-Fi connection stream movie to my LG Smart TV 42LS5700
It worked fine for a week or so but yesterday I started to experience the issue to stream the same file as was good before.
Now when I stream it started to play and then pause or buffer then play again and etc. Practically it's not watchable that way. TV Plex client has a little icon on the screen which I think indicate the radio signal and I see that 'good' days signal is full but today it's very weak. When I have that issue I checked on PC that CPU and memory consumption are fine.
The bottom-line is that I have no clue what could be the reason why Wi-Fi communication between my PC and TV is so unstable. I have no problem to stream movie from internet which indicates that my router is OK. I have 15 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up speed ... but LG support said me that speed does not play any role in communication between PC and TV since they are connected internally.
Does anyone have an idea what could be the problem? Does it make sense to try another Media Server on my Ubuntu ... maybe Plex Server is not working reliably ?
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
