I admit to being a bit new to this but I have been working with this product for a month with completely random results.
I am using DVDFAB 9 to rip DVDs and BRs. Output is .mkv with no compression. I have as ‘vanilla’ setup as I could.
The first results were great… all movies played, good sound. but…
as I added more and more movies to the hub (all are stored locally to the hub) random things started happening. (I also upgraded to firware 3.10.09) Now some of the movies so not play at all: spinning orange arrow of death = reboot to fix.
This applies to movies ripped as mkv and movies using the copy function with DVDFAB.
When the movies do play…some of the audio will not work. (I’m using the optical our for audio and HDMI for video.)
I have worked throught the content issues - my solution: Go through each movie’s diretory and rename the files to movie.mkv …how stupid is that, but the hub can’t use IMDB and although I’ve tried a third party scraper (Media Master) manual renaming is the only thing that has worked.
I know there isn’t much specific data here, but I just want to know if anybody has any useful information that would help: i.e. Which settings to use in DVDFAB (Compression isn’t an issue as I plan to add a NAS device.) But which audio and video settings work…absolutely!
and finally is there anybody out there with one of these things that really trully works that would take a little time to answer some questions for me…before I take the hub out behind the woodshed and introduce it to my 8lb hammer!
Thanks in advance.
