Was glad to see beta 6 out! I updated the media player (i think) and was wondering if I could get some basic help setting things up.
I just got my aTV last week, so forgive me if these are pretty dumb questions.
I am interested in ripping our DVDs to the network and watching them through the media tab in aTV Flash (black). Like I mentioned, I have updated to beta 6. How do I lay out the directory structure so i get the “Movies” option under Media, like in your screenshots of the new beta? I connected to my share, and I have Files on the main menu under media, but no Movies option. Do I need to lay the files out in a certain structure?
I was just going to use DVD Decryptor to rip them to VIDEO_TS folders, but I see a lot of people talking about mkv files. What are they? Should I be using those?
Really, I just want mine to look like the one in the screenshot, with the list of them, the cover art, etc… but I am not sure where to start. I put a .AVI in the share, and was able to play it, so I know I’ve connected properly.
Before I go ripping 500 DVDs, I wanted to make sure I was going to do it the right way, and not spend all that time on the wrong path. Any advice would be much appreciated!
Again, sorry if this is a dumb question, but I searched the knowledge base and FAQs and didnt find any instructions for laying this out correctly.
