Hello, I have Samba and DLNA servers running on my PC but no idea how to connect this TV set to it.  As I learned allshare app can serve this purpose but I can't find it neiter among installed apps nor using search, what can I do?

No, thanks.  What's up with 'allshare' on Crystal?  This app seems to be what I need but I can't access it.

OK, as I learned allshare is no longer available (why?), is there a way to connect to DLNA server then?

OK, I finally made it working.  Use minidlnad on GNU/LInux.  Firewall rules are:

/usr/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp -s 192.168.0.0/24 --dport 8200 -j ACCEPT
/usr/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m udp -s 192.168.0.0/24 --dport 8200 -j ACCEPT

/usr/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p udp -m udp -s 192.168.0.0/24 --dport 1900 -j ACCEPT

 

I'm unsure, but my TV couldn't find server but then I accessed server from my smartphone and then server appeared as a source on TV, so it was like smartphone somehow has wakened up the TV, I don't know why.

No apps on TV side are needed, nothing except launching minidlnad with correct config on PC side is necessary, when server is running and is accessible from TV it appears among available sources on TV.
