Allright so first Id like to appologize if this has been gone over previously, I didnt see it anywhere so i dont think it is.


Heres is my setup, I have a WHS in the basement with my collection of dvds ripped and saved as .vob and .ifo files. These files could be made into iso's pretty easily. I have mymovies loaded on to the WHS and my laptop to view movies, but now am looking to view the movies streaming directly from WHS to my tv. I could set up using my xbox 360 but that means i lose all dvd menus and extras. Im looking to add popcorn hour to view these movies as well as dvd menus on my tv. Is there any way to do that using the mymovies interface? is there a way to integrate WHS, popcorn hour, and mymovies? i dont feel that popcorn hours interface is as robust as mymovies. the only thing I can think of is building my own HTPC wich seems like a waste of resources. Also if anyone has any recomendations of devices like popcorn hour that will allow me to use mymovies would be appreciated.

Unfortunately you cannot use the MyMovies UI with the PCH. Your best bet would be to install a plugin like YAMJ on the PCH ( http://www.networkedmediatank.com/sh....php?tid=23929 )


Another option would be something like the SageTV HD200 (only issue is it does not support HD audio so if you are connecting directly to your tv and the movie only has HD audio such as DTS or True HD you will get no sound).


Here is a quick write up I had done ( http://dbone1026.blogspot.com/2009/0...and-setup.html ). Also, some new UI screens are on the way ( http://dbone1026.blogspot.com/2009/0...tv-screen.html )


SageTV is probably one of the only products out there that fully integrates with WHS which is nice.
