I suspect it might be that I'm running the software on Win 2000 server, but it could well be just cos I'm mentally retarded. Can anyone help?

I have indeed tried the MPlayDVD app, but unfortunately it still occurs. I'll try it again with your latest release on a few rips to be sure though
With regards to TVersity, sorry for the lack of info. Mplay can see the server, I can browse to movie files and a message saying its opening the file appears in the top-right of the screen and then nothing... After a little while it just exits. I've set Media/hub receiver to other already as well.
Thanks for your help!

When I choose "Open File" in MPlay and select "TVersity Media Server", nothing shows in the list. TVersity service is running, firewall is configured, and my "Home Media" tab in TVersity has files in it (mp4 and wmv). The default feeds that installed with TVersity are there also. It's my understanding that after I select "TVersity Media Server" in MPlay that all the Sharing categories in TVersity will show up in the list in MPlay. Do I have something misconfigured?
Any help would be appreciated.

TVersity does show up on the left hand side of the Roku UI. However, when I select it and rescan, it always says "TVersity Media Server contains no recognized media files. Please insert or choose another media source." I put an MPEG-2 ts file into the Home Media category as a test, but still nothing shows up. I also have "Other selected as the Media Hub/Receiver.
Edit: The message about TVersity containing no recognized media files is the only thing that shows on the screen. No categories are listed.
Apparently you're successfully using TVersity with MPlay on the Photobridge. Since there's no info on the TVersity web site I can find about what this combo does/doesn't do, could you give us a rundown? This combo sounds like a solution to MANY of our problems with the native Photobridge.
