Hi, I have a brand new Plex server over Ubuntu Server 14.04.1 and a Sony Bravia KDL-50W805B 2014 TV set.
First, I can setup the Sony DLNA client and can see the Plex DLNA server, then If I try to see videos on my TV set, it displays just fine, but no subtitules!, and music plays well but no albums cover arts.
I was just up to write a help request when stumbled upon this thread, so I have tweaked the Sony Bravia 2013.xml profile file, renamed it to Sony Bravia 2014.xml and copied to /usr/lib/plexmediaserver/Resources/Profiles, restarted Plex server service plexmediaserver restart and the log file Plex DLNA Server.log located in /var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server/Logs indicates that profiles were loaded.
Now, when connecting the TV to the Plex media server I start to get lines like this, indicating my TV is correctly associated with the new profile
Mapped client to profile Sony Bravia 2014 using header X-AV-Client-Info: av=5.0; cn="Sony Corporation"; mn="BRAVIA KDL-50W805B"; mv="1.7";
That seems good, now I can see album arts (no artists arts on folders) and movies displays subtitles but the quality is really downgraded as Dr. Crash says.
I tryed removing DlnaMediaProfiles but no luck, and even added/removed the LowerBound tags but no luck, the result is the same.
Of course I have restarted the server just after any profile edit.
Just to mention, this was auto created in my DLNA client preferences field on Server DLNA config page
My TV set is from Argentina
Any ideas why Plex starts transcoding TV playable files?
I have attached my Plex DLNA Server.log file, generated with the generic profile active, and the same log but with the Sony Bravia 2014 profile activated and the Sony Bravia 2014.xml profile file to this post
