Hello all,

I got one problem with the live streaming:
All channels are displayed in 4:3 instead of 16:9 or automatic adjustment.

What can I do? I can't change anything @ my samsung TV....

It's possible on the clients that do not require transcoding.

There was someone else reporting this issue. We will have a look at it.

Plex people have confirmed the issue with the aspect ratio on Samsung TVs on their side. It is planned to be fixed with the next release.

Hi - great news! :)

What do you think when will the next release be available?

I am really counting the days until this release! I have to use dvblogic on my samsung to watch tv every evening and its horrible in 4:3!
Isn't there any quick-fix?

Kind regards

They did not say about the exact day. I would assume 2-4 weeks.

No news. It is completely under control of plex people.

Please contact Plex support on this issue because it is in their code.

It most likely took a lot longer than that to get the Samsung app approved.

I'm using the Samsung app version in which this has been fixed but DVBLink streams that are 16:9 anamorphic are still displaying as 4:3, both recordings and Live TV.
But that's with DVBLink v5.0.0 RC1 so I'm not sure.

I've asked in the Plex forums for advice on how to work out if it's a special case missed in Plex or a DVBLink problem.

Any thoughts on what I can do from a DVBLink POV?
