    Hospital WiFi Security

    Thanks for your comments. I don't know why I didn't think of this before... "Google is your friend" :) So I Googled around and got this: So maybe it's not such a big deal after all. Maybe. If I don't get the message next time I'm there, it may be that they've reset their clock. I'll take a copy of the messages and give it to someone who looks like they might know someone who knows something about their system - hard to find, I know - but you gotta try.

    Hospital WiFi Security

    I tried to connect to the free WiFi in a private hospital in Phuket town: So I hit "Continue"... Then hit "Advanced"... ...and scrolled the message... Any thoughts? Should I send these images to the hospital WiFi people? I'm sure I've used their WiFi in the past without this problem. Maybe my mobile's security (BitDefender) has been updated and now detects stuff like this.

    LG TV X.265 CODEC

    16,190bht for the Samsung 55" UHD https://www.lazada.co.th/products/samsung-uhd-4k-smart-tv-55-ua55mu6103-i220920595-s337043057.html?spm=a2o4m.searchlist.list.2.1609125aAlQ327&search=1 Yes - good point. Also, Powerbuy have them really cheap. I just tried playing on the latest Samsung (6100 series) all my test videos that I listed in post #11, and that Samsung doesn't play some of the old ones, e.g. 08. AVI 624x336 + Subs 1062 Kbps -Strike Back.avi 09. AVI 576x432 + Subs 983 Kbps -Star Trek.avi 16. WMA 874 Kbps -Neil Young.wma 18. mp4 720p.BrRip.x264 16 ref frames - MI 3 .mp4 Not too worried about the first 3, but surprised it couldn't handle the last one.

    My friend's Samsung couldn't handle MP4s with x265, but was OK with MKVs and x265. (Or maybe it was the other way around). And his TVs are only a couple of years old. There are no official software updates for my TVs. Don't know about firmware or whether it exists separate from software. I had a look at the latest UHD 4K TVs at my local HomePro: LG (49UJ630T @19,000B) and Panasonic (49EX600T @24,000B). All the video and audio files listed above in post #11 worked fine. The Panasonic picture looked a bit better, but both were great.

    I was thinking of getting a media player to get around the problem. Both my LG TVs are about 4 years old and, apart from the lack of codecs, work fine. I've no experience of "Android devices" so wouldn't know where to start.

    That's what I did too - take a load of music and video files on a thumb drive and try them all at the shop. I suppose there weren't many/any .x265's around 4 years ago. Edit: I just found the files on my PC!: 0. Left right speaker test .mp3 00. Left right speaker test .mp4 01. MKV 1440x1080 + Subs -Doctor Who.mkv 01. MKV 1440x1080 + Subs -Doctor Who.srt 02.

    "Older webOS 2.0"? My one must be ancient (webOS v. 1.4.0-2529)

    LG TV X.265 CODEC

    That's a bummer. My LG TVs are : Model: 47LA690T June 2014, s/w v. 04.28.18. No updates available. Model: 47LB670T-TA, August 2014, webOS v. 1.4.0-2529, s/w v. 05.05.55. No updates available. - neither will play .x265 videos from a thumb drive. My friend's Samsung is model UA49MU6100, s/w v. T-KTMUABC-1210.8, BT-S It plays x264 (AVC/AAC and AVC/MP3 and AVC/AC3) and x265 (HEVC/AAC) provided they are .mkv's. Today I tried x265 (HEVC/AAC) in .mp4 and it played, but two days ago we tried other x265 videos (HEVC/AAC) and they didn't play. So I'm going to have to get the "MediaInfo" data on those files to see what going on. But meanwhile, my bluddy LG TVs are heading for the bin. That'll teach me to take a chance on these cheap foreign jobs. Wonder what I'd get for 'em...

    Interesting. I've been helping (?) a friend to get to get his Samsung to play H.265 videos without success. I'll ask him the exact model number of his Samsung. I also didn't find the firmware update screen when I was helping (?) him, so I'll try again and find out if there's an update available. Do you know what your firmware version is?

    Anyone managing to play X.265 (HEVC) encoded videos on a thumb drive in a LG TV? No problems with X.264 (AVC). I just updated my LG TV firmware to v 5.05.55 and still no X.265 codec.

    Windows 10 1803 Spring Update.....Marvelous!

    I deferred my updates until June 6th. I'll be doing a system image on all machines on the 4th. Update: I can now defer until 7th July. Went to Advanced Windows Update options and clicked on Defer.
  13. Yes, sorry, I forgot this topic is not in the Phuket forum, as I was really talking about Phuket hospitals. I have been up-country and seen the hospitals there and you're right. I also noticed in one ward of one hospital that the carer slept under the bed of the patient.
  14. From my previous post: Depends also if you like government hospitals. I must admit I don't like hospital food - even at Bangkok Phuket. But they do have an al-la-carte menu with some sort-of farang food, and TV, and Wifi, and hot and cold running nurses. I've no idea what rooms are like in government hospitals but have been assured that their equipment is as good as private hospitals.
