    How to configure your Serviio software to recognise the Sharp AQUOS TV.

    in the serviio software install directory, there is a directory named “config” with 2 files in it. log4j.xml and profiles.xml

    step 1) Open the profiles.xml
    Step 2) paste the “code” block from this post

    <Profile id="14" name="Sharp AQUOS" extendsProfileId="1">

    Step 3) Restart Serviio

    If you did it correctly, you should see this line in the serviio logs:

    2011-07-12 16:56:10,535 INFO [ProfilesDefinitionParser] Added profile 'Sharp Aquos' (id=14)

    Step 5) Turn off TV, wait 5 minutes
    Step 6) delete the TV as a registered device using the serviio GUI.
    Step 7) Turn on tv

    If all went correctly, you should see the TV register itself with the Aquos profile.

     2011-07-12 17:05:47,850 INFO [RendererManager] Stored a new renderer: uuid='721aac88-42f6-435a-b61f-XXXX', name = 'Sharp Aquos', ipAddress='192.168.X.XX', profile = '14'

    Enjoy !
