I have a TV Live Hub set up on my network with all of my movies and music on it and have all the meta data set up so that when I am viewing the tv live hub localy I can see all the movie title covers and info. I just bought a TV Live streaming box and hooked it up to one of my other tv’s and connected it to our network. I had no problems connecting it to the network and can connect to the tv live hub but if I try going into videos and select media server I can see all my movies but it only shows a generic icon for the videos instead of the Jacket picture of the movie or any of it’s info that is in the meta data file. If I go into video and select the source to be Network Share I can see all my movies and it shows the icons as the movie jacket and the info from the meta data. The other issue I noticed was that while I am in the video folder and I press the blue button to go to the dashboard it gives me an error and I have to use the back button several times to gat back out to the dashboard and then when I want to go back into my movies I have to navigate through all the submenus to get back to the network shares. This is a little bit of a pain for me but I know when the wife or the kids try to do this they are just going to be confused. Any help would be appreciated … maybe it;s something I have setup wrong or it is a error in the firmware … still to new to the tv live streaming player.
The first part of your question is due to the difference between direct connection and using a media server. A media server can only serve certain things up. If you want to see everything you have to use network shares to connect.
