Network Error Occurred

#1

random "Network Error Occurred" when using plex app on Samsung Smart Hub tv.
everything is the latest version. (ill update the post with exact versions later)
tv firmware
player app

happens at random, may be fine for several hours, then pops up. Im thinking it has something to do when my internet gets slow or cuts in and out, its not super reliable. kids will be spamming youtube on ipads, and the internet is already slow. i see errors about the plex losing connectivity to the internet around the time i get network errors from the Samsung tv. everything is hard wired, so no idea how to fix this. no issues with other devices, ipad/pc/roku/xbox/android/iphone.

because its local browsing it should be fine to have slow or crappy internet, but because im plex pass and i have to log in to everything is that why is kicking me when my internet times out?

Also now if i switch from direct play to streaming when i get the network errors, i see a new error.

"the requested stream could not be found"

#4

still broken


#5

Try to unplug the TV for a few minutes from the wallsocket.(not just turn it off, but really unplug it)


#6

unplugging does fix the issue temporarily, but it comes back after several hours - several days.


#7

i was able to resolve the issue. some type of incompatibility with the software driver from realtek Ethernet card and the samsung tv. once i downloaded the latest release from realtek directly, vs the Microsoft default that the motherboard asus had listed, the problem is gone. its likely this would affect anyone who has a realtek network card.
