My card expired and I'm waiting for new card to show up so I can activate the picture/video functions


Which card expired? Your access card? That's... bizarre. I have several (quite) old access cards and they're doing fine.

I think he meant his credit card so he could purchase a license to activate the rest. Right now only audio works. And I'm still trying to figure out how to shut off the music when I'm finished short of shutting down the server and restarting it. The Yellow, Exit and Stop buttons are recognized but do nothing. Pressing the yellow chances the info on the timeline on the bottom to whatever is on the TV however the audio is still my music. Strange I know.

I had installed the trial version a few months back, so my trial is expired with this beta, which means i'm restricted to "audio only" mode. And, it works great. But, before I throw $50 at this, has anyone tried streaming HD video recorded with EyeTV? Or, does the HR20 not support it anyway, regardless of the fact that EyeConnect does?

Video streaming to the HR20 is not supported yet, Mac or PC.

I have noticed between WMP11 and EyeConnect is that there are folders instead of thumbnails when browsing pictures, otherwise it works pretty darn good, well worth the money and a lot better than Twonky! Music files are in track order instead of alpha order.

I've been pretty happy with Twonky, but downloaded this one to give it a try. It interacts with EyeTV, so when the HR20 supports video, I'll be set there. Music worked fine but I can't access pictures (I imported some into iPhoto). I'm downloading the documentation now and expect that will get me straightened out.

Make sure you turn sharing on in iPhoto. I also had to add iPhoto under contents even though it is the there under "your name's" pictures. Once I did that I could view my iPhoto library.

Now I see why I missed this announcement...
I have moved it back over to the Q&A forum...
So it can get more "views"

As it is a big deal.

Would a separate Media Share/Networking (and later VOD) forum make sense?

There are a number of features about Twonky I like better, such as the web configuration rather than System Preferences, but Twonky distorts many of my pictures, which EyeConnect does not. They both do a good job with music (I don't have as many files as some others do), but I expect that EyeConnect will really shine when video becomes available (which will probably be long after my 30-day trial ends).

Any advice on why I'm getting only static streaming from iTunes?
Playlist shows up, can select songs, but only static. Just tried one other track and heard the first second, still with static, and then full static - literally like a radio station tuning issue.

Is the wireless modem too close to the HR-20. causing interference?

I'm sending wirelessly from iTunes to the modem, but then obviously ethernet from the modem to the HR-20.

Any ideas?



Photos work properly, although I also had to "add again" my iPhoto library.

did you download 1.1 or the Beta? 1.1 does not support audio, you need to download the beta in OP.

Thanks machavez,
I don't see the direct link to the Beta in the OP. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place?
Thanks for the help.

EDIT: Nevermind - right-clicked and downloading now. Thanks man.

WOW- killer app.
All we need now is video - and who needs Apple TV. C'mon D* !

Machavez, can you get the "with slideshow" selection to work?

Do you need a slideshow already running, then add already playing music to join together?

Thanks.
