I am using an HP MediaSmart home server to host about 500 movies. Each movie is contained in a folder with a title that is the same as the movie’s. For example, there is a folder called “Avatar”, and within that folder, a movie file called “Avatar” (as well as jpeg fanart, a system info file, and a .tbn file). I am finding that roughly 10% (?) of the titles are are not being displayed in their respective folders. For instance, the folder titled “Alvin and the Chipmunks” should have the video file “Alvin and the Chipmunks”, but when accesed through the WD TV Live Plus, it displays the Avatar movie file. If I click the file it says “unable to play the selected file. please see the user manual for a list of supported file formats”. The files in the “Alvin and the Chipmunks” folder are the exact same file types as those in the “Avatar” folder (.mkv, system info, .tbn, .jpg).
Another way to access the movies is to select to view “All Videos” instead of “By Folder”. When I do this, I cannot scroll down past about the 70th or 80th movie title (either WD crashes, or it flashes the “thinking” circle and then takes me back to the previous menu.
Has anyone else experienced this? How can I get around it?
