Renojim, I look forward to testing and using this and future versions and do appreciate the work you are doing to carry this project forward, including implementing some of my suggestions. I do agree that the best direction this project can take is to make installation and upgrading less formidable for non-technical folks. Roku people don't like to leave the couch.
It shouldn't matter, but what kind of computer/OS are you using for the server? Can you post the contents of 'config.ini'? All folders under the directory you've configured for your music/videos should always show up when you click on "My Music" or "My Videos" when you browse to http://myip:8001/feed. I assume you didn't set up a Photos directory. I've never seen a screen that says 'none', so I have to wonder if you're really talking about "My Media".
