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

Yes, you always need the server running on your PC.

I believe the 'channel' branch has the latest updates. You can get it here.

I have to look at the whole springboard thing again. I just launch 'mymedia.py' directly to start the server (on Windows, .py files are associated with Python, so I can just type "start mymedia.py" or double click it from an Explorer window). The last time I tried springboard.py, it started rss_server.py and not mymedia.py. springboard_debug.bat starts springboard.py which may not be starting the correct server.

What is best thread for media streaming with a nas

Ugh, sorry for being lazy, but there are 70 pages of threads here, and it seems like there are lots of options. Also, since this thread started, there are more up to date hardware and software releases, so I thought i would ask graciously if there was a specific page or subject that guides a newb into how best to setup a NAS and which one [hardware] is most preferred. I did spend some time on the Roksbox site.

Desire to view photos and movies from a nas, and not have to have the pc ON. Music i get from my Grace digital radio. Vista right now, but I seem to read that W7 has some nice advantages to this. Thanks

If you can get Python v2.6 setup on your NAS, the rest is easy.

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

I have an issue with Handbrake HD encoded files not playing. The MKV movie was encoded using RF=22, Web Optimized and 29.97 frame rate. The Roku starts loading it about half way, then slows down the loading and then just stops. The server connection is wired and Roku is on Wireless-N network. I checked the server and it shows the following

<log file just stops here even after 10 minutes>

This is only happening for the HD 1280x720 files - the other SD videos all play fine. Does MyMedia support these large HD files or is my encoding incorrect?
Thanks

I haven't tried any HD file that big. I'm not sure how I'd produce one. Was this a BluRay rip?
