Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

If I try to play a movie that's encoded with 5.1 and the Roku is set to stereo, Roksbox won't play it. Are all of your Roku's set up the same with audio? That's a great suggestion. The two Rokus that are working are in our bedroom and family room, both on full A/V systems. The kitchen Roku is just ...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Each has its own IP address - I've given them fixed addresses so that they are all grouped together on my router. My entire home network is hardwired. I've used HandBrake to encode all my files, so they were created as .m4v and renamed to .mp4. By default, I'm encoding all my movies at 29.97 fps bec...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

I assume they are the same type of Roku's, otherwise you would have said, but I just want to make sure they aren't a mix of Roku 1 and Roku 2's. None of them are the Roku 2, but there is a mix in them. I have two of the newer style XDs, one older style XD and one of the newer style XDS. Again, when...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Hi, I have four Rokus running Roksbox, and I'm having issues with two of them. As far as I can tell, all four are configured exactly the same, and all four point to the same IP Address and directory on my server. The problem is, while all four find and parse my video directory, when I try and play a...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Hi, Is there anyway, using only the video directory structure, to hide certain folders based on the selected user account? For instance, I'd like to be able to setup a user account that only sees G (and maybe PG) rated movies on the Roku in our guest room, so that we don't have "issues" wh...

Need help preparing a Blu-Ray for Roksbox

Hi, I just got a Blu-Ray player for my PC, and I'm trying to encode a movie for Roksbox. I'm using DVDFab8 to rip the movie and HandBrake to encode it. DVDFab8 is ripping the discs to ISOs no problem (I've tried a couple different movies), but HandBrake won't use them as source files. The first ISO ...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Hi, I was wondering if it is, or could be possible to have xml files for video subcategories? Mainly what I'm looking for is a way to add a description to the pop-up bubble that appears next to the selected folder or video. Right now if I have a subcategory such as TV/Comedy/xxxxx, when the Comedy f...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Hi, Is there a way to set a server username and password on the Roksbox admin account? I can do that when I create users, but the admin account doesn't seem to have that option. I have basic authentication on my server so I need to set it. Without it, the admin account acts like it's connecting to t...

Re: Questions About HandBrake Settings

Update to #4. I tried encoding a disc with just AC3 5.1. While it works fine on my home theater system, I don't get any sound if I play it on a PC. So, I'm back to putting both tracks on the encodes. I don't know if the order matters, but I made the 5.1 passthru track # 1 (it's 2 by default) as this...

Questions About HandBrake Settings

Hi, I'm still a "newbie" working on setting up Roksbox, and I have a few questions about encoding my DVDs. Based on what I've read in this forum, I'm working with DVDFab 8 and Handbrake. I've encoded several DVDs and everything has been working fine. However, before I really settle in and ...

Re: Roksbox Questions

Hi, I discovered that I did not have directory browsing enabled on my server. Enabling this resolved my first two issues. I tried switching case on the directory names and it works either way. I suppose this may depend on what type of server you are running. Thanks for the help. Roksbox is working g...

DVD Ripping "Sweet Spot"?

Hi, I got my first Roku a few weeks ago and I'm in the process of setting up Roksbox. I have never had a need to rip my DVDs before, so I'm just starting the process. I'm using Open DVD Ripper (because I already had it) to rip a few test DVDs to get started. Open DVD Ripper, under the HD settings, w...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

Hi,
I tried to register on the Roksbox site. I was told I would receive an activation e-mail, but I never did. I can't sign on to your site, and I can't register because it says my e-mail address is already registered. Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

Thanks!
