Bunch of WDLiveTV questions


I have some questions about on the WDLiveTV

  1. I have loaded some DVD’s .mkv format using DVDFab, when I look at the NAS drive MYBookDUO it shows the movie folder with the movie file. When I look at the WDLiveTV, I can see the movie in the All Files option but it shows me 1, 2 or 3 entries for each file with RIP in the title. But if I look at the Album option I just see the folder and one entry. in all cases the file plays fine, any ideas.

  2. Genre information, I am running all this on a mac and I have tried a number of  different tools to get the media data and have not found any that work, I tried WD to get the steps to get the steps to capture the media information individually but those steps did not work. What I am looking for is how do I get the media information for a DVD, what is the file name that the media information goes in and whether I can just build a file for myself, I have all the data for my collection store CKZ Movie Collector and can extract that, again any ideas.

Any pointers would be really great, thanks

Have you tried with a different software to rip the files?  if not, you can try that to eliminate possible causes of the issue

Just guessing here but is it something to do with putting the device on the PC and deleting the “_wdtv” file?

I had 3 repeats on file names (4 if you count the original).  Did the delete and all is well now   :smiley:

Thanks Guys,

looks like I have resolved the 3 copies issue, seems like I was wrong with the number of files copied, so that is ok, just need to be able to get the Genre dat sorted now if anybody knows.
