I got a second hand Vero 4K+ to replace the internal player on my 2017 LG OLED. This was for the following reasons:
- Since switching to a processor with ARC instead of stereo SPDIF (was using a stereo amplifier) some audio tracks wont play
- To run Spotify connect so I don’t need to have my tv on for music (I can turn off the screen though).
- The TV only has a 100mbit port and very high bitrate 4K content shows some artifacts which I think it because of the network speed.
But I run into the following issues:
Going to the menu while playing forces a refresh rate change (set on always switch) results in a massive pop in my speakers. I would like the menu to be 60hz and playback at whatever the file is (like my TV’s internal DLNA player does), but this doesn’t seem to be possible?
The Vero doesn’t always see my Serviio DLNA server running on my NAS (fixed ip). I had it working once, but the next day I’m not able to access it through the Vero. Serviio sees the Vero though. DLNA works flawlessly on my TV, phone and tablet.
Vero can’t access my SMB network drives. I don’t know why it can’t access them, they work flawlessly on my PC, tablet and laptop. Where can I enter a password?
Raspotify doesn’t output sound over HDMI (didn’t test the other ports).
All in all the experience is very disappointing and makes me just want to sell it and get a Shield or something (maybe even an Apple TV even though that has that 24hz issue). What are the steps I will have to run through to get this fixed? I started out with a completely fresh install with the latest image, the person who owned it before me was nice enough to flash it to completely reset it.
