I've been looking at the LA40B650 TV recently, espcially as it has some interesting media playback features over DLNA and USB. Tried some samples out in a store with mixed results.

Original off air Freeview|HD TS Streams
 * 576i - Don't work
 * 720p - Work
 * 1080i - Work

MP4 files - work
MKV Files - work, but some seeking issues

The one issue I did discover is you have no aspect ratio options when playing back over USB. The only two options are "Fill" or "Original". Some of the MKV files were 4:3 or 2.1:1 aspect ratio.

Anyone here had a play with this set and various media formats?




Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat APAC as a Technology Evangelist and Portfolio Architect. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

I had a play for a while (DNLA) on my series 7. I gave up in the end and built a HTPC so I wasn't restricted to only certain file formats. Spent a good few weeks playing around with the DNLA side of things. I've only tried via USB once (a SPTS) and that played fine. However, yes, I found issues with aspect ratios too (a 720x576 file coded with 16:9 would only ever play back in 4:3).
