1) this just backfeeds into the control4 interface, so until that gets updated to better handle tv shows it will be one jacket per disc as it is now and not "treed"

2) dont have a changer so i cant say

I just got this setup at my house and its amazing. So happy that i dont have to edit metadata anymore. Plus the mymovies phone app is sweet - i can keep better track of what i have and what i want to see/rent/buy.

For those interested i run mymovies full version on a "server"/"nas" thats a windows 7 ultimate box with raid 6 drives and use a dune.

Out of curiosity are you using the EV driver or the certified C4 driver ?

Hi

To answer a few questions. You can't use an Apple TV for playback. It is simply that you cant issue a command to 'play this file from over there' to the Apple TV like you can with the Pop players, WMC and Dune.

TV series are shown by disc on the C4 interface. So if Season X of Show Y has Z discs you will see Z entries on the Control4 interface each as Disc 1, Disc 2 etc.

The external DVD changer is not supported, the driver is looking for the paths to playback the movies on the network. It *might* be something we look at later for support of BD changers.

If you are having problems with anything scanning then please raise a ticket on our helpdesk. Everyone has quite diverse collections and if there is anything we have 'missed' we'll get it into the driver ASAP.

With regard to whether there is any advantage of going through a dealer for the MM part it all really depends on your level of comfort with fiddling with your PC. I guess most folks here will be very comfortable. It is worth remembering that if you buy the diamond design package then this will include both MM and the MM Collection Management driver.

No problem. The only downside is I've been having to move my files into folders, which is just tedious but has been well worth it.

I made the jump over a year ago and I ended up building a system dedicated to ripping movies. 2 x BluRay and 3 x DVD. Let AnyDVD run rampid and rip everything to the WHS. MyMovies did most of the cataloging.

Does the EV MyMovies driver with the PCH C300 store stopping points for movies?

The native MyMovies services with WMC created stopping points. Also did the same for WDTV Live players.

You know there is a program that does this for you. It's free. I found it on the web 1 year ago. I had about 300 movies that it did for me

With regard to stopping points my understanding is that it does not on the PCH. When you select a movie from the C4 interface it sends a 'play this file from this location' command to the PCH. The PCH then starts playing the file from the beginning. It would require PCH to add an ability to send a parameter 'resume if possible' but I have no idea if they could or would add that.

Hmmmm.... this doesn't work for my system at all. I just get this message over and over again:

08/16/12 18:34:28 : Valid IP address
08/16/12 18:34:33 : EVQ - Timeout while connected - Count: 1 on connection 6001

I have retried all settings, added and removed drivers etc. It doesn't seem to matter.

My System: iMac running XP on Fusion with a bridged network card so that I get a static ip and mac address. ComposerHE, MyMovies, Internet etc all work perfectly fine. Does this only work with Windows7? Anyone here running it with XP?

I got the same message with win7. I was using my movies collection management and had to switch to my movies media center version. Then everything worked. Hope that helps.

I dont know much about computers and their OS but i remebered that when I switched to my movies media center version. Before I could install it I had to install win 7 service pack1. So I'm not sure if it was the service pack that fixed it or the media center version of my movies. Hopefully EV will see this and can help you.

I was having similar problems, but EV has already released an update that solves this problem. Have your dealer look for the updated version.

There's an issue with MyMovies that it sometimes doesn't register the system variables in Windows that it needs to (or something similar). Uninstall My Movies, restart, reinstall My Movies. This should fix any remaining problems. My Movies are looking into this.
