Don't worry he's just looking for his "virtual dad" fix.
Haha...yeah, especially considering the last month or so the only posts in this thread have been about Mastermaybe's "saga" (I think we've reached that point if you consider the Synology issues prior!) and the fact that distribution has mysteriously halted in the US (over a possible Dolby licensing issue so careful with those FW updates while this gets sorted). Didn't mean to disrupt the plethora of discussion going on here lately...
As halfelite mentions, it's not the first time they've had licensing issues. I'm fairly confident something will be worked out. In any case, I doubt they drop support altogether just because of a downmixing codec issue. Time will tell...
I just had a similar issue but I store my database on my UnRAID server so it can feed more than one PCH. The problem I had was a share issue where the db was originally scanned with the root user accessing the share so the paths to all of my movie files were linked to this user account. Because of a change in UnRAID, the root user can no longer be used to access shares (security feature) and you must create at least one new user. One day when I couldn't access the share, I created the new user and was able to stream from the list mode. The next time I used NMJ (several weeks later), I kept getting the yellow triangle when trying to play the movie and knew it was most likely a path/share issue (since NMJTBv2 was scanning and updating artwork fine) but couldn't figure out why it wasn't working. Using NMJTBv2, I attempted to add another path (actually the same path I already had) to see if I could find any difference. That's when I realized that NMJ couldn't auto mount the share because of a permissions issue in the db structure. Well, I got a little impatient and just rescanned my entire database (+600 movies and 29 TV shows with multiple seasons each). Rom later confirmed that I could've edited the database path with and SQL editor (for which I have no experience but he indicated it was rather simple) and I could've done a mass update on the path. Anyway, I took this opportunity to update all of my movie titles with "local" artwork so the next time I have to rescan the database for whatever reason, all of the artwork will be what I want. Alternatively, you might be able to salvage the artwork in your current db by manually adding to the new db since I believe it's only related to the filename of the video or TV Show / Season / Episode etc.
Having said this and since I saw your post in the NMT forum yesterday, I would continue to seek Rom's advice for the best means to correct your database. He will know the easiest/best way to get what you want.
EDIT: After reading Rom's reply to your thread in the NMT forum, I don't think the striked out portion above would work. You might be able to salvage the images but I'm not sure how you would reassign the image path as indicated by one of the bulk item tools in NMJTBv2 (i.e. remove image path). I'm sure it's possible but just not as I described. I've been thinking about asking Rom for a way to export the images in the database to the local folders as another bulk action that would save a lot of time updating covers in the future.
Is this what you're talking about? I couldn't tell if this is freeware or just a trial version but it sounds like it does what I'm asking. I'll check it out later when I can run the installer.
I have just ordered the PCH A-400 and should arrive this week. I have aquestion and I can’t seem to find an answer.
Where does the NMJ store the cover art and media information? Is it on the internal HDD or the media storage device (in my case a Synology 1812+ NAS)
If stored on the internal hard drive is it worth using a SSD drive to speed up cover art information when scrolling or can you use a SD/USE drive to store information?
Where can you buy a the Popcorn Hours Players? I am looking at the A-410 that is supposed to be released in a few days. I go on the Cloud Media Website and they offering shipping to pretty much everywhere except the US.
I contacted them and they said that they aren't currently shipping to the US due to changes in payment and shipping?
The way the e-mail reads its not just the A-410 its ALL of the products offered on the Could Media Website.
That's why hardware playback rules...
