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

I'm not too surprised it works at the album level. I'd have been surprised if it didn't. I'm running out of ideas as well. You never said whether you were connected wired or wireless. If wireless, I think it would be worthwhile to try wired if it's not too much trouble. Not that a solution would co...

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

Well at least we eliminated PIL as being the problem. All of my tags are v2.3, but it looks like I also have v1.1 tags in the files as well. When there was an issue with tags, the Python code would throw an error, so I don't think that's the problem. This is really strange. The same code is used wh...

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

Could the type of ID Tag make a difference? I'm using ID3V2.3.0. I found a lot of bad tags in my collections so decided weeks ago to change them all, get rid of anything but this version. Like I was saying before, my portable player seems much happier with this. The tag info works fine playing indiv...

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

Would it be better to have images pre-scaled when embedded, meaning 223x200? Generally, the images I use are closer to 500x500, but MP3Tag converts them to 250x224 37kb, in this instance. I tried a 500x500 and it printed "Passing on image unmodified" after the "Scaling the image"...

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

Don't know if the log file entries from the mymedia/server txt file tells you anything, but this it the text from what was playing just before, to when I switched to shuffle all in the Artist folder (Dave Matthews Band), and letting it spin in shuffling for probably 30 minutes before I took it back...

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

The reason I started this with the sentence appears to be broken (again/still) was because of this older post: "Other Strangeness 1. Shuffling: It's broken! I got lots of error messages in the mymedia.bat window when it was attempting to shuffle. I wish I could past the traceback code for you, ...

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

I've let it sit many minutes and it never gets past the spinning wheel. My files are organized by artist name. I've tried shuffling all from the top menu. No go. Then I go down into a folder, say, A-C, which may contain 10 folders (artists), which then may have an album or three in those. No go. One...

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

Shuffling appears to be broken (again/still). It used to work for me then nothing, just spins endlessly. Doesn't matter if its done at the main menu or and submenu. Is this just my set up or are others experiencing the issue? As an aside, did get the Roku firmware update this morning, but my shuffli...

Re: having problems with network setup

Here is what Apple says about setting up a network. Somewhere in this process should be a select channel option.
Open AirPort Utility, select Time Capsule, and click Continue.
Follow the onscreen instructions to create your new network.

Re: Roku not receiving wireless

Can you reach it with a Cat5 cable to get it working, just as a temporary fix? Then you could try going back to wireless.

Still all worked fine until I had a Roku channel cut off then would not find network (would get two green lights then third was red and error statement). Went into router and removed DNS (all zero...

Re: Harmony 610 not working with Roku N1100

I also have a Harmony, just an older one, a 550, and I managed to get it working with my N1000. I found the hardware under DVR or some such thing, but then modified the buttons to fit my needs. A couple of connections to Harmony ago it prompted me that a newer version was available, but I passed sin...

Re: frequent stopping of videos

What I've been noticing is that, with diagnostic feature turned on, the first mediafly program I watch has my network speed high, as in 8.5mbps. Each following program gets less and less speed showing. I can understand the speeds varying, but why always slower and slower until I start getting the bu...
