Question

Does the SP520 have amazon instant video as a premium service

There are pictures of amazon video on the site with the unit but I've read conflicting reports. Also does it have media link access? Not just DLNA, but the actual LG media link app.

No, Amazon is not supported according to a recent communication with LG Support, they said they had not reached an agreement with Amazon thus that feature was not available.

As of 11/26/2012, the Amazon Instant Video app has been removed. However, LG Customer Service says it will be available by the end of November 2012.

You can browse via CIFS or DLNA. CIFS will require logging into your server with a user id and password, DLNA does not. However, as of 11/26/2012, it appears the CIFS access may be broken. I tried connecting to a Synology DS-212j NAS and could only view top level folders. Any type of folder drill down resulted in a network error.

I am not sure how to answer your question on a "media link app". LG Customer Service says either Nero or Plex needs to be installed on the serving device in order to access media outside of DLNA. This also will explain why you may experience issues when trying to view folders and files by CIFS. If your referring to a "media link app" that will access media content on the internet (i.e. CNET video, USTREAM, etc.), it does not access these sites at this time.

A software "upgrade" removed this most useful app. The upgrade was automatic. I have not been able to revert. I only bought this because of Amazon video.

NO, unless you want to use the complete useless dlna option. Simple CIFS and SMB connection is simply to hard implement for the no-good programmers. Too bad since the product is 95% complete - they just forgot CIFS and SMB, leaving NAS users in the dark.

When the unit is first plugged in the red light comes on and the LG logo is displayed but then the unit shuts down. Be sure to use the remote control to turn the unit on after you plug it in.

We appreciate your interest in this television. Unfortunately, there is more than one 5300 series, and more than one 47” television in those 5300 series TVs. We would have to know the two letters between in the model number, so that we could know if you are reviewing the 47LE5300 or the 47LW5300. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 for additional information.

Question

CIFS shares have network errors

All the CIFS shares on my home network does not seem to work, showing the message "A network error occurred". DLNA server shares are working fine. Hard-reset or factory reset didn't help. This cannot be a Windows setup issue, since my other LG BD (670) player can access them without any problems, and one of the CIFS shares is just "public" at NAS that doesn't require windows setup. CIFS access is really needed for external subtitle file support.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this device. In reviewing our owner’s manual and specification sheet, this device does not appear to be compatible with CIFS networks, as it is with DLNA file sharing. We recommend the use of DLNA file sharing formatting with the use of this device.

Question

CIFS support

I don't think the answer from Neil (CIFS not supported) is correct. In the manual, it clearly says "This unit can play video, audio and photo files
located in a PC or a DLNA server through your
home network." (p.27). And CIFS log in instruction is on p.28.
I am asking what I should do when I get "network error" message during an attempt to access CIFS share.

I apologize for the delay in responding to this message. After testing the unit, it has been determined that the picture to which you have referred, on page 28 of the manual, is a copy-paste image from another product. The specifications and the rest of the owner’s manual make no reference to CIFS compatibility. We cannot provide any recommendations for the use of this device with CIFS file sharing.
