Access via DNLA from the TV to the Windows PC is easy (e.g. Twonky Server), but especially mkv-files with two audio streams, switch ON / OFF subtitles, jump to chapters as well as forwarding und rewinding is not supported.

The problem can be solved by installing a NFS server on the Windows machine and using the SamyGO extensions. This HOW TO describes the steps after having root access to the SAMY and will connect the TV to your Windows machine without the use of SamyGO Extensions. If you are already using SamyGO extensions you will find a init.d script called 03_03_nfsmount.init that handles the whole mounting on TV side (in this case skip step 4 and 5 of this HOW-TO. The software haneWIN NFS server will be the NFS server on the Windows platform.

1) Follow the steps as described in Hacking C-Series TV with Internet@TV only or Hacking TV over Hotel mode

2) Download and install Notepad++ if necessary

3) Within this tutorial the following IP adresses are used:


If you are not sure about the IP adresses of your TV and PC go to

“Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center”
and check “See full map”. The TV must be switched on and connected to the network.

4) Edit the "" by using notepad++ as following:

rm -f /mtd_rwarea/profile
$1/SamyGO/rcSGO $1/SamyGO > $1/rcSGO_out 2>&1 &
sleep 120
/bin/mount -o nolock $1/share -t nfs
touch $1/ScriptOK

- sleep timer 120 ensures that the TV will fully boot, after that the NFS is mounted
- In this script it doesnt matter which USB port of your TV you are using. The script should work with USB 1 or 2

5) Create in the root of the USB stick a directory, e.g “FILME”.
You may change the name as you like, you just have change the "" script as well.
In this directory “FILME” the movies files will be mounted

6) Download and install the HaneWIN NFS Server on your Win 7 machine.
Older operating systems such as WIN XP or VISTA are supported as well.

7) Open HaneWIN NFS server and go to the tab “Exporte”.


8) Edit the "Export-file" as following:


e:\nfs -lowercase -alldirs -readonly -name:filme

-name:filme is just an example. You may change it in accordance with your mounting point (see above in the "" script).
In this example my local folder is e:\nfs. You may change it according to your needs, just keep the syntax.

After editing the "Export-file" you need to start the server again.

9) Ensure in Windows explorer that the exported folder is NOT shared (Share with nobody).

10) Plug in the USB stick into your TV. Start the NFS server on your PC. Switch on your TV.

After around two minutes you should have access from the TV to your PC. Choose for example a mkv file. You are now able to choose the audio stream and subtiltels by pressing the "TOOLS" button on your remote control. Enjoy !
