I use handbrake, which has the option to encode 6-channel audio into 2 using Pro Logic encoding. Then My Pro logic receiver decodes and plays the original 6-channel sound (at a somewhat reduced quality.)
This approach is not ideal, but it does work.
Yes i used handbreak to re-encode 1 movie just to run tests on. I purchased the XD|S because of the fact that it has hdmi and optical sound out. You would think that something with this kind of hardware would be able to support more than 2 channel sound. Im kinda at a wall here. I have mover 4TD of movies all encoded 720 or 1080 with 6ch audio and none play. To re-encode these would take months and at the same time loose my surround sound. Why even have the option to change the settings to Dolby Sound if you cant stream a movie with Dolby Sound to it.
I tried to turn debug on but got no output. No idea where its stopping at. Just sits there about half way through the loading. Is there no one that uses Roku stream or has tried to stream 6ch audio movies? Hard for me to believe I am the first and only one to have this problem.
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" when we have guests with children.
I know I can accomplish this by switching to XML files, but it's easier to maintain my collection using the directory structure. I know I could also accomplish it by putting these movies at a deeper folder level and pointing the user to that level, but that messes up my other user accounts that should see the entire collection.
If this is currently not an option, I'd like to add it to the wish list. Perhaps a way to create a small text file in the root directory (probably named the same as the user account), which would let us list folders to ignore, maybe by just the folder path with a minus sign in front? To really expand on that, maybe a way to ignore individual movies or perhaps entire movie ratings, such as -R to ignore R rated movies? I realize the last part would require XML files of some type to set the movies rating. I use a similar feature in a TOC (table of contents) maker I use for my old AudioTron. It has an optional text file in which I can tell it to ignore folders (genres) such as Audio Books, which are stored in the same directories but which I don't play through my music server.
Thanks again for all your great work!

Do you get the folder image, or does it say "Image not available"?
Neither. I get a grey image with a circle of dots in the middle for both the subcategory and the video itself. I've never seen a folder image before, but I have seen the "Image not available" image on instances where I had a poster path in the XML file but no image for it on the server yet.
One thought that comes to mind is that my literal path from the root is: Qweb->Videos. The web server path is http://10.0.1.5/Videos/. Could it be looking for a "Videos" directory on the root of the NAS rather than under "Qweb"?
I've been trying to duplicate your problem, and one way I can duplicate it is if my poster files are named Poster.jpg instead of poster.jpg (uppercase P). Check your poster.jpg files, and make sure they are all lowercase.

Is there a sample XML file somewhere?
Copy and paste the sample text from this page to get you started:
http://roksbox.com/home/index.php?optio ... &Itemid=62
I have two boxes running Roksbox and I'm having a problem getting any video's to play.
I have the 'Poster' option enabled and when I click 'Play' when the focus is on the movie poster, the 'Roksbox' logo appears and states "Loading" and then I'm returned back to the menu. This occurs with both of my devices.
I do have Frugal mode enabled. If I disable Frugal, I can't even get to the Video Listing. When I select "My Videos", the logo appears and states "Parsing directory" and then I'm returned to the menu. My video collection contains 140 folders.
I've searched the forum and checked the FAQ's on the website and I don't see any mention of this issue.
I actually tried that though I was a bit confused as to how any of these fields would apply to subcategories other than Description or Poster. I was actually hoping the Poster field would help me out with the problem I'm experiencing getting subcategory images to show up. I started with those two fields and saw no change in my subcategories in Roksbox. I then tried filling out all those fields with test data and again got no change. Since this file also exists in the same location as the subcategory images, it would seem that my issue (in both cases) must have to do with the system not being able to find my files rather than with the files themselves.
I recommend before you attempt to generate an XML for your actual film library, get the example XML to show up in your Roksbox, then you can start to make changes to match your actual films and see them.
