Plex Media Server runs on Windows and Mac, and intelligently scans all your videos, photos and music.
The best thing about the Plex Server is that it automatically categorises TV shows, movies, and fetches episode information, artwork and other metadata from the internet.
Thanks, Tom And I still don't see any link from the first two posters.
If they are privy to inside information, perhaps they could tell us about the bundles BP was said in another forum to be introducing on February 28. I will have a more thorough look tomorrow as I am tired now.
Life would be simpler if I only had one machine to use for everything. I do not seem to see anything on my T-box home menu nor do I see any new software (last nov 2011)???
Can I use the T-Box to record a program, transfer it to a USB stick, wipe the PVR space in order to make room for more programs, then return in six months' time and play the file from the USB? Also, does the external usb drive still need to be formatted fat32?
If you have a huge media library that you can’t fit on your i Pad or i Phone, here’s a great free solution to stream all of it off your PC/Mac.
You’ll have to run Plex Media Server on your PC/Mac and VLC on your i OS device.
Sometimes it’s not just the hardware which is causing this problem.
About time they released this as I know it has been in the planning stages since the T-Box was first released.
I know it will play media from a usb thumb drive, external HDD but if you want it to play media from a PC then the PC needs to have windows 7 with Media Player 12 installed.
One of the first things I did when I got my new TV was figure out how I can stream all of my movies from my server to the TV. I finally figured out today that it’s Windows Media Player that’s doing the indexing of the movie list – you have media player running for the new files to show up!
You can read up on details here, but the long and short of it is that it’s a technology that makes it easy to share media across different devices. But one of the things that I’ve noticed is that new movies put onto the server don’t always show up on my TV’s list of files.
