There is very little that has to be done to get them to work together. Once loaded, its quite seamless...you don't even know AnyDVD is involved.

Question for people using JRiver 20 and an Oppo 105.
I am using my JRiver20 as a DLNA server and some of my audio flac trac shows up with cover art and some don't.
So my question is a DLNA server supposed to serve the cover art or is the Oppo fetching the cover art using track name and properties ?

Thanks.

It does with just the help of AnyDVD because of copy protection. Jriver will never be able to remove this so you will have to rely on AnyDVD - blame the studios not jriver.

I'm having some sort of audio issue with Jriver 19, at first when I had a 2Ch pre/pro I assumed there was 5.1 down mixing issue. I only thought that because it worked fine with my previous 5.1 AVR. Now that I have return to 5.1 unit, I'm still having the same issue.

I tried to see if any of the setting were off through options, tools, etc via JR, but at the time my home network was down so I don't know if anything really took?

If there's a straight forward way to fix this I would love some guidance please.

Thanks in advance.

I'm not getting some sort of decoding when watching movies, as if the center channel is off, but when I use a 2ch pre pro I was getting full stereo sounds you would hear somethings off screen and yet it wasn't properly playing correctly!

Hope that's clear as it seems it should play with one or the other not both

What type of cables are you using to get audio to avr (hdmi, spdif, coaxial or analog rca)? Are you bitstreaming to avr or having jriver decode?

I'm using Hdmi, I believe the Jriver is doing the decoding but I'll double check.

Hey,

I'm new to Jriver but I love it so far. It seems to do everything (except 3D which it can do with external player, but I'm in no hurries with 3D.) So, I don't see any reason to use anything else.

I hope Roomie Remote will integrate better support for it. So far you can control Jriver using MCE Controller but better support is surely possible.

I don't think I'll be using AnyDVD HD for any thing.... I tend to use MakeMKV.

I just changed it to bitstreaming it seems to fix the issue, how do you have yours set up? I just want the best possible sounds emitting from my system.

Thank you for your help.

I have several zones setup each with different audio setups, mostly I use bitstreaming. I am able to have jriver decode to 5.1 PCM which goes thru AVR as multi channel (5.1) just fine. If you go here http://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Audio_Setup this should get you going on which ever audio setup you want. For adding zones, just right click on Playing Now and then click add zone.

I usually use one of the remote apps on my android tablet (Gizmo, eos & Jremote). I do sometimes use my URC MX-980 when I am watching a movie which works fine for the playback functions (stop/pause/FF/REW) , but not very well for browsing in standard view which is my preference for navigating my very large library. When browsing I usually end up using one of the apps or my logitec mx-air mouse.

Do you guys know of any where I could find in detail, descriptions of all the settings and options for JRiver? Link? I am getting ready to start setting everything up in new system which will not use an AVR or pre/pro, instead, I will be using JRiver from my PC into a 6-channel DAC/Audio Interface, from there straight into my amplifiers. JRiver will also serve as my primary source for both movies and music.

You can start at the jriver wiki see link above. Also, there are many discussions on doing this perhaps Nyal's thread on this or his blog will help (Accoustic Frontiers) How to replace your home theater pre-pro with a HTPC!. Finally, you can ask for help at JRiver interact forum https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/

I don't think there is anything that will cover the specific details for supporting your hardware. I'm doing something similar with my multichannel DAC connected directly to amps. The important factor is the audio driver. What DAC are using? What sort of drivers does it have, ASIO, WDM? After you connect your DAC to your PC, what shows up as a sound device on Control Panel?

What is the interface, USB, USB2, FireWire?
