Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Can you try removing all of the videos from that folder and adding them back one at a time to see if one of them is causing the conflict? I could... But thats over 500gb of videos.... Why would the other Roksbox channel see the folder clearly? You have over 500GB of videos in one folder??? It is pr...

I'm able to stream .mkv files across the network from my NAS to the Roku via Roksbox. Some files play absolutely fine. Others show the video at the wrong aspect ratio

It's a Roku issue... The core thread talking about it is here:

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Hi. I've been using Roksbox for some time now and everything has been fine/stable, but I think the recent category alphabetization update has "broken" the ordering of my shows. I'm using an XML file and have always had the categories/subcategories set to sort alphabetically, but relied on...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Thanks! Turning off WIndows Firewall worked but I don't want to leave it off for security reasons. if you have a router between you and the outside internet there's no need for a software firewall unless you're trying to stop a someone in the house from hacking into your computer on the local subne...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

I noticed navigating the menus on the Roku is now painfully slow under Roksbox. Any idea why that is? It is so slow. My network is gigbit so I don't think that is it. Which menus are you referring to? Is it the Roksbox option menus, or navigating through the media screens? Navigating through the dv...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

WiDD; Would it be possible to automatically create a category of "all" and just list all titles alphabetically, or maybe auto-generate sub-categories bu first letter? A few times now I've know the movie I want to watch, but I can't figure out what category PVD has assigned to it. I usuall...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Use something like EZ Thumbs (it's free) to resize all of the images to around 200x200. That'll speed things right up. Well, I've resized them to 338x500 which (I thought) used to be the standard recommended size. Now it seems to be 214x306. Is that the right size? Or does making them square as you...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

I use an XML file to organize what has become an extensive movie collection. I use poster images for each movie/show and my largest poster is 50kB (though the average is near 20kB). Scrolling along a list of movies is getting quite slow, particularly if the list is long. Use something like EZ Thumb...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Thanks. I'll do this with automater I guess. Still wouldn't mind a simple text interface to plow through real fast and then just see the movie cover on load. It might be just be me though because I'm kind of geeky. I bet most people like the coverflow style. Ahhh, you might wanna try removing the &...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

I also kind of wish categories had "All" or a simple text view that didn't lag my screen. If you're running with an XML file that's pushing images for cover art, then the lag is probably coming from the size of the images. Use something like EZThumbs to run through the "images" ...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Hello, I've been using Roksbox for a couple of weeks, and I really enjoy it. I'm at the point where I only have a few days left to register, but I cant seem to get to the registration page on Roksbox. I go to http://www.roksbox.com/register, and it brings me to a login page asking for my user name ...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

OK, I just want to test this out; kind of walk before I run. If I have IIS enabled on one of my PCs, and I have a "test" folder called media off the c drive; and a folder called videos inside that. I have http://192.168.xxx.xxx (obviously, the ip of the PC I have IIS on) as the web server...
