Hi everyone. I need help.
I recently bought an AppleTV and now I bought the Patchstick. I bought the patchstick mainly for simple DVD playback. I have no fanbcy requirements (yet) :-).
Apple was 2.1 out of the box. Updated it to 2.3. Worked. Connection to TV is 720p.
I installed the patchstick. Succeeded without probelms.
Then I sort of figured out I had to install lots of applications under the DVD menu item (no manual somehwere? The wiki is for a very outdated version of nitoTV). It told me Perian was already installed. All applications install fine but one, which require a MAC which I don’t have.
Then I tried to acces my DVD Video_TS folder. Hurray, it sees the title and I can start playing.
It starts of with a thin white line at the top, immediately followed by a green screen and then the video. Mmm.
Playing works (only first time). However I cannot pause, no fwd or rew, no Dolby Digital audio and no subtitles. Is that supposed to be??? Since I’m not native English, having subtitles is kind of must for the other family members.
Now I quit by pressing menu. If I want to replay the movie I get only audio.
Mmmh, so I go to applications and it turns out I can re-install the mplayer. Okay so let;s try again.
He, I can play my DVD Video_TS file again.
So I can only play a DVD once (no subtitles, DD or play/pause functionality) and then need to reinstall the mplayer codecs. What is going wrong?
Then I tried to install QuickTime from the maintenance menu. Cplete machine froze. Had to unplug to get it to boot again.
So can anyone provide some help to me?
