Access network drive from router

Hello all,

I just bought a new tv, Samsung 59" 6 series 6270.

Th os is Tizen. Anyway to access my drive from the router? Seems like I can access it however it won't play most video files.

My downstairs tv has a android box to access those files.

Also anyway to sidebar android on this thing?

Thanks

Dave

Smart TV softwares are mostly outdated and useless.

Thanks for the help.

I can access and play files with an android box hooked up to the tv as well as play it through an app on my iPad. The internal os seems like I cannot play the video formats.

Thanks again

That's very surprising. My 5yr old LG tv plays everything Ive thrown at it. (Through the network too)
What kind of files are you trying to play?

But like others have said tv software is never that great. I don't recommend using it unless that's all you have. Get a Mibox or Nvidia shield to play your videos and you'll be happy.
