Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I took the reset to an extreme and did a factory reset. That fixed the problem after I went back through all the set up and re-adding chs. Now all is back to normal. I have no real idea what happened but everything is good and working normally. I guess, when all else fails, "Start from the beg...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I'm working on it now along with some of the other ideas that have been suggested in this thread. At some point I plan on going through the thread from the beginning to see what has been missed. We need a better method of tracking feature requests than just having them getting mentioned here and the...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Feature Request: El Wubo, It would be nice to have a "refresh" function. I may have several videos processing and going into my video folder. When I view a video, and then stop it, I can't see any new stop, unless I exit the video folder, and go back in. It then says "retrieving"...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Have you tried rebooting the Roku DVP? Unplug it for a few seconds and plug it back in.

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I like the new navigation/play options - they take a little getting used to as there is more interaction (keyclicks) to navigate but they work well. At the risk of sounding like an ungrateful jerk, I rather wish there was a way to deactivate the shuffle/browse/play popup. It makes navigating the di...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

The symbolic link issue was the problem. I still would like that functionality in the future, but for now it works. thanks, Fred I'm still curious about the "../../../" issue. Does the path make any sense? Would the server have found the mp3 at the path that was printed in the log? Edit: ...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

One thing what is the best file format and settings for video that every one has found to work best? I'm not the best person to answer this since video quality isn't all that important to me (I'll probably never own an HDTV), but I use HandBrake with mostly default settings. I usually set the outpu...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I've been mostly keeping up with this thread, but I may have missed this feature suggestion: A progress bar and different shading for videos that have already been watched. I never knew how much I loved this feature in NetFlix until I tried keeping track of which episodes of a television show that ...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

The symbolic link probably has something to do with it. I'm using junctions in Windows to accomplish what you're trying to do and it works just fine, but I don't know exactly how they compare to symbolic links. My *nix is a little rusty, but aren't there hard and soft links? I know el.wubo is using ...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

The warning message shows up in the log when the server thinks there may be some unauthorized client trying to access files outside of the media directories you have setup. I'm not sure why the "../../../" is there. Is that part of the path you've setup in your config.ini? I'm a little sur...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Hi, I've been play around on my Mac for a couple days - oddly, seems whenever I hit a folder that actually *has* MP3s in it, the client tells me there's no usable content in the folder - additionally, the log states nothing but repeated instances of: DEBUG:root:rejecting .DS_Store Browsing folders ...

M3U Playlist support

The developer's preview release now includes M3U playlist support. You can find it here . Playlists will show up in your music folders. Selecting one will start the playlist playing in the audio player. I don't use playlists that often myself, so I wouldn't say it's been thoroughly tested. I created...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Not sure what the now playing option gives me as before - if I had started playing some music - the music continued to play while I navigated into other folders and displayed a slide show. The only time the music stopped was when I exited the app. Yes, but before if you started playing music and na...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Great stuff. I really like the new version. I can now get to my sub folders, before I could not!! I like the new interface for playing music, why do I think i have seen that somewhere before!! Where? One suggestion would be if you hit the down arrow when you are browsing folders that it would send ...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Stupid me, I just realized I have the Flickr source code right here (assuming it's still accurate). They use a different scaling method than I'm using. I use "scale-to-fit" and they use "best-fit". I'm big on maintaining aspect ratio and "best-fit" may or may not mainta...
