i followed this thread (http://art.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1198689) and got mediatomb (http://mediatomb.cc/) on my ubuntu 10.04 lucid running. i have a samsung UE-32B7020 tv.

the only problem is that for .avi and .mp4 movies (these are the ones i tried), fast forward and rewind do not work. transcoding is not enabled.

any ideas?

Try the arrows instead of the fast foward or rewind buttons.

Hi,

I am coming across now the same issue that the fast forward isnt working probably. I can use the arrows but then everytime the file is reloading and I cant jump really far, just some seconds.

Is this an error of mediatomb or of the TV? I have a Samsung something

Hi,
i have the same issue with my UE37D6500. I can jump 15 sec for-/backward with the arrow keys. Transcoding is switched off. (Not working with .mpg)
A fix would be very fine. I've heard there is something wrong with the RC and Logitech Harmony seem to fix this, but i don't have one.
This we i will try to check the traffic with wireshark perhaps i can find something there.

Hi all,
i found a much better solution. My first thought was to buy a small PC and install XBMC instead. But thats expensive and as i am a student i don't have a lot of money.
There is a platform called "Plex" with a fronted like XBMC (not as powerful in that App version, but ok).
Composed of a client and a server. The client ist not avaiable for Linux (iOS, Windows and Android only) but there is a Smart Hub App. It works really great!

Here you can have a look at it:

-At first you have to install the "Plex Media Server":
http://www.plexapp.com/linux/linux-pms-download.php
-You can add video/pictures/music, using a webfrontend:
http://serveradress:32400/manage
-Then you can install the App on your TV using Smarthub. As it can't be found in the App-Repo you have to add it from your own repo. Thats how it works:

-Finally you enter the IP-adress of your new Plex-Server at first startup

I think its much better than using UPnP or DLNA
