So I have searched all over this forum, cant figure out whats going on…
I cannot get “get content info” menu to pop up, nor can i get movie info to show at all, using the WDTV SMP.
For years I have been a ‘Media Center Master’ User. And MCM proccessed all my movies as soon as they are downloaded. It creates its own .XML file for each movie, downloads a Trailer, a backdrop, a banner, and a folder thumb. My Directories look like this: (example of a movie folder and its contents below)
C:/Media/Movies/The Monster Squad (1989)/
C:/Media/Movies/The Monster Squad (1989)/The Monster Squad (1989).mkv
C:/Media/Movies/The Monster Squad (1989)//The Monster Squad (1989).xml
C:/Media/Movies/The Monster Squad (1989)//The Monster Squad (1989).tgmd
C:/Media/Movies/The Monster Squad (1989)//The Monster Squad (1989).jpg
C:/Media/Movies/The Monster Squad (1989)/Trailer/Trailer.avi
This is all done by media center master. Not by WDTV SMP.
-Created “My Media Library” on the WDTV SMP, through the Menu and added my “C:/Media” folder…
-Made sure the shared folder was shared to “Everyone” with “full access” and read/write enabled for all…
-Let WDTV SMP run for 2 hours while it “Built media Library” and “Getting content info…”
It finishes fine every time… And I access “My Media Library” then select “C:/Media” but there is no movie info.
Ive tried with Get Media Info on auto, and manual. When I press “options” on the movie folder, I dont get the option to “Get Content Info”. Only “Move, Delete, rename, Rescan” etc…
Ive even erased the library from WDTV and rebuilt it. No Luck…
Can anyone tell me what is wrong? Is it my Naming Convention? is the MCM .xml interfering? If so, is there a way around that? becuase other devices use that info just fine (Like my older WDTV Live+ units running WDLXTV software)
My house is hardwaired into every room with Cat6a Ethernet. No Wireless is used. I have no problem with my PC’s DLNA devices, or older WDTV Live Plus, and WDTV Live units. But they are both running WDLXTV, which they dont make for the WDTV SMP - but its not needed if I can just get this movie info to work.
Thanks!! I appreciate you answers
