I have an XP machine with 6 TB of storage on-line in my home. I have some AVI’s but mostly DVDs. I store them as complete DVDs (minus the menus in most cases). I have other network players (MG-35,Popcorn Hour,Tvix) in my home (one for each TV in the house). I use regular network shares (without username/password access, since it’s a private home network)
I would like to be able to navigate the DVD by chapter/title. The other players I have support chapter navigation. Also the video and audio drops out during VOB playback, as it moves from one VOB to the next in the DVD. It appears that the VIDEO_TS.IFO file is ignored by the player, so it doesn’t support chapter/title navigation, thus the dropout of video/audio during playback of DVDs.
I store the DVDs in seperate folders, one for each disc in a series or one complete movie.
I hope this is addressed in a future firmware release.
