View Full Version : Folder thumbnails on BRAVIA KDL-40EX500

January 2nd, 2015, 07:15 AM
Hi There,

Happy new year! Wish you a successful 2015 :)

My Sony BRAVIA KDL-40EX500 TV does not show folder thumbnails, although they appear correctly in KRR's GUI. It only shows the thumbnails for an audio/video file, but not for folder where the file is located inside. I know of at least one other dlna server that does show the folder thumbnails with my TV, so maybe there is a way to show them with KRR too.

This is how my setup looks like:

| |__SpiderMan.mp4
| |__folder.jpg

My TV will only show Movies\SpiderMan\folder.jpg when focusing on Movies\SpiderMan\SpiderMan.mp4
Having the same structure, another dlna server shows Movies\folder.jpg for Movies folder and Movies\SpiderMan\folder.jpg for Movies\SpiderMan folder.
Am I doing something wrong?

PS: I use "Sony Bravia TV (2010 Models)" as device definition.

Hi Amina and Happy New Year!

It's supposed to work, maybe there's something specific to that Sony TV model. I'll see if I can find a similar one to test.

Can I help you by sending some log files or is that unnecessary?

Thank you for offering your help. There is no need to send the logs at this moment, as I think I might know where the problem is. I'll try to fix it and I'll get back when I have more news.
