All indexer will give more or less the same result on a dune, this is because of the dune and the way it's working, not because of the software you're using.
PS : you didn't try Yadis basic mode I hope...
No I use Yadis advanced mode and its too crude for my tastes.
The static versus Dynamic nature of the jukebox has nothing to do with my prerference between programs.
The issue with these programs is whether they work or not. Right now, Zappiti is 100% useless to me as it crashes trying to scape my library. YADIS is very very crude. not very flexible but I did get it scraping correctly and fixed the entries it got wrong. MyMovies is running now and appears to be a much more complete media manager but seems to be missing a lot of the geek features I enjoy in ember. More time required with MyMovies but so far its my favorite. I will try DFI next when my Dune arrives. In the meantime I will continue to play with My Movies... I am excited MyMovies does support outputing NFO's for XBMC and PCH. Anyone tried that.... gonna setup a test share and let MyMovies generate some XBMC metadata and see how it works out.
couple of questions....
Does the one share SMB limit that exists on the PCH still exist on the DUNE (seems to be a sigma SDK limitation). In my case I have DVD's on one NAS and Blurays on another NAS.
Is it possible to unify these into a single library or am I stuck with 2 libraries. on the PCH there are several jukeboxe that eliminate this limitation by using FLASH or as a local APP running on the player.
Do I need to add a USB stick or SSD to the Dune to run any of these jukeboxes?
Are there any benefits of putting the index on the NAS or on internal storage on the DUNE? Do I need internal storage inthe DUNE for BD ISO?
Any tips on this would be appreciated.
