I have just added this Samsung to the network, and I can see the KRR server, and all the files, but none will play.

They all play on my Sony, as well as through my Directv Genie.

What am I missing?

I discovered that if I use the Samsung TV profile, I can see and view my files. I think I saw somewhere that FF and rewind don't work with the samsung. Is that correct, do I need to locate the profile specifically for my player?

Did you try the "Samsung BDP" profiles? If not, please try those as well.

Yes, Samsung devices do not support FF/REW over DLNA in the normal sense, but you can use the left/right buttons on the remote to skip through videos.

Yes, but not to get halfway through a video.

The Sony downstairs seems to support it. Should we return the samsung (just bought it) and exchange it for a sony?

Oh, by the way, I have the same issue with directv. my box is an HR44/200. The closest profile is the one for the 22,23,24 and 34
