What server software on your PC are you using?
Windows Media Player? TVersity?
EyeConnect on Leopard.
He mentioned that in his first post...
EyeConnect & Leopard (OS 10.5).
I am wondering if this update only allows for WMV video (No DivX)?? When you see the video, and press select or play, what exactly happens? Errors, or does it ignore you?
It acts as if it's going to play the clip, but the timeline is empty. After a few seconds I get this message:
Clips with WMV extensions all have an X next to them, as do AVI movies. Most of the clips I would want to watch will be MPG and AVI. If I need to convert them to another format I can do that, but I would prefer not to.
30SLIP search from where guys to set the 30 sec skip? I do a keyword search from search for shows and get no results? Where else is there a keyword search?
As far as I know, I do not have the update yet (will check tonight) so I can only guess at this. If you want the 30 sec skip, you do a keyword search "30SKIP". There may or may not be any hits, but the keyword triggers the option to enabled. If you do a "30SLIP" search, the slip is enabled.
I have been looking around for any information regarding what codecs this streaming update supports, but I have had no luck. You may want to convert a few smaller vids to other formats just to see if you get one working.
I know that was a big deal with the PS3 and 360 consoles. The 360 just started suppporting DivX and the PS3 just started supporting WMV.
Make sure you are selecting "Keyword" from the menu and not "Title" etc. And select Continue after enetering 30SKIP. No results, but it should be enabled.
So he did. I'm just not familiar with the "other" platform.
Still waiting for the upgrade. My receiver doesn't even show it as available.
"EyeConnect & Leopard" could have very easily been mistaken as random gibberish.
Yes. I often speak in random gibberish.
I thought they were the names of the videos he was trying to play
I noticed that the progress meter is gone after enabling the 30 second skip (when using 30 sec skip). Very Nice!
Also, holding the "pause" on the SLB (that never flushes) essentially gives us DLB without all the annoying aspects that show up on the TIVO application. Again, very nice!
What annoying aspects of the TiVo are you referring to though?
The pop up warnings that Tivo is about to start recording on this or the other tuner which was potentially disruptive to one or the other buffer. When this happened you had to think fast to avoid lossing the buffer you cared about.
Constantly having to be aware of the important buffer so Tivo wouldn't take it over.
Changing the channel in the middle of the night to do mantainance & leaving it parked right there.
That's the nature of the beast though. The only way around that is to either have it not warn you at all (not good) or allow 3 or 4 tuner functionality which would be great, but isn't happening on any of them at this point.
Has anyone had any luck finding what formats of video's will play?
I have been looking off and on but still have not found anything... I am waiting patiently for my update so I can start testing with it.
The thing that I am looking forward to most is the 30 sec skip. I sorely miss that from my TiVo.
I don't have the update yet. What is the shortcut for the closed caption on/off? Is it an option on the quick menu or a color button assignment?
That is something I've been looking forward to.
It's an item on the TV Options (yellow button) menu.
