    Movie Title Sort Order

    I noticed today that movies sort by name that have a numeric title are sorted differently in the Web Client than they are sort in MBC. The web client appears to sort strictly based on alpha orders with numeric sorting before alpha characters but the Classic client sorts the numeric first but based on the numeric value. You can see an example in the attached image. All of the sort titles are correct and the theme does appear to have any impact on the sort. I tried ROC and Diamond Is there a setting that I have missed in either of the clients?? I would like for the sort to be consistent.
  2. as title says rush doesn't show... I wanted a little play see if I could be tempted away from NEO (I doubt it!) I ran the check update in mbc (beta) do I need to be on dev or something???

    RUSH Theme for MBC now available

    RUSH Theme for MBC is now available to the general public. From the author of previous themes Neo, Pearl, Rush is probably one of the fastest themes available. For more details checkout the link below: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/2492-rush-theme-for-mbc/
  4. Originally posted by @@Starkadius here. Run Media Browser Classic Configurator (located "C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaBrowser\MediaBrowser\Configurator.exe") After installation has completed, click the 'ThemeVideo Backdrops' plugin and then 'Configure' In Backdrop sources select 'Theme backdrops' Launch MediaBrowser Classic and go to settings Click on 'Config' Finally for the theme you are using (in this case Chocolate) go to 'Chocolate General' and make sure 'Show video Backdrop' is checked. Then click continue and restart MBC for changes to take effect.
  5. This guide was first published here by @@mboehler. 1. Store your Tagged Intros in a folder. Mine, for example, are in \\diskstation\Media\Intros\Tagged. For each Tagged Intro you want to use, you will need an intro video. I suggest naming them Disney.mp4, Pixar.mp4, etc. 2. Tag your movies. 2a. Open the web client, select a movie, and click Edit. 2b. Scroll down and click the + next to Tags. Enter the tag for the intro you want to play. It must be in the format of custom-intro-Disney.mp4, custom-intro-Pixar.mp4, etc. In this case I'm using custom-intro-Disney.mp4. Click +Add 2c. You must do this for each movie that you'd like to play a Tagged Intro. Repeat step 2 as many times as necessary. 3. Set up MB Intros. 3a. In the dashboard, click Plugins, and then click MB Intros. 3b. Select the appropriate Profile (you may or may not have more than one profile). 3c. Click the + next to Add Intro, then click Tag Intro. For specific instructions, you can click the "i". 3d. Select the folder you stored your tagged intros in, then click OK. 3e. You should now see an entry in the list of Intros like this: 4. Use the buttons to place your Intros in the desired order.
  6. I see in my log that a Wake on Lan request is send to my server when I open MBC. 2013-11-14 11:34:52.8407,Debug,,Attempting to wake server at address 54-04-A6-B4-8E-68,1,Application 2013-11-14 11:34:52.8507,Debug,,Wake command sent,1,Application 2013-11-14 11:34:52.8907,Debug,,=========System looking for assembly: Newtonsoft.Json,, Version=,, Culture=neutral,, PublicKeyToken=30ad4fe6b2a6aeed,1,Application Still I get this error. Shouldn't MBC have a delay on giving this error so the server does get the time to get active?
  7. Anyone experience this? I'm running MBS (3.0.5031.21343) & MBC ( B9-20.1) from my HTPC and although I've had it set for transcoding, I receive a black screen in playback of certain MP4's and MKV's. I have set UNC paths and set the configurator for trancode360, but this still takes place. The weird thing is I don't believe it's a codec issue because if I'm connected directly to the HTPC the same movies work. But if the movie is watched through an extender there's the same issue. The sound always comes through though.
  8. I fired up MB3 Classic this morning and it ask to update my Plugins. I only have ROC installed so I click yes. It installed, then when I restarted MB3 Classic in gave me a Invalid Application Error. I shut down WMC then tried to restart MB3 Classic with the same error. I completely shut down the computer and tried again with the same error. I check off disable the application and now I have can't fire MB3 Classic. MB3 Server is running and the web client accesses the database. How can I get MB3 Classic back? Then how do I install the previous version of ROC? Johnny M
  9. In MBC I have "Remember Folder Indexing" and when I enter Movies, Music and TV collections it always shows the "all items" view. When I go back to the EHS and return to the collection it will then show the index view which in this case is set to "genre" for all my collections. This happens every time even after exiting MBC or restarting PC. Behavior is consistent across four HTPCs. Is this a known bug and/or is it being worked on? If not please let me know what logs to provide. Server version : 3.0.5031.21343 MBC version : B10-17.2 OS: Windows 8, 8.1

    (404) Error in log file

    I'm getting (404) errors in my log file. I think they're being generated when I browse to a TV series using MBC. The error I get is when I get to the list of episodes in my TV series, it shows 0|27 (or how ever many episodes are in that season) and then dumps a whole bunch of these 404 errors to the log file. I have to close MBC/WMC because it's locked and I can't even navigate out of that folder. That makes MBC completely useless because I can't play any of the shows. I'm not using any firewalls or anything with this setup. It's all internal network. When I put one of the 404 URLs that is shown inside the log file into a browser, I see an error message in the browser. I've attached a screenshot of that as well. I'm using MB3 Version 3.0.5029.36830 MBC Version B9-20.1
  11. I just moved from MB2 to MBS/MBC. One thing that I noticed is I can't seem to re-order the Media Collections as I could in the MB2 Configurator. Perhaps I'm missing something. In all honesty, I've not read tutorials or docs, so if it's in there, please feel free to throw out a RTFM at me. Thanks, and I'm thrilled to be moving to a client/server solution. Can't wait for MBT to be available in public beta. Nice work all!
  12. I am getting an error in MBC that it can't find the server. I know that the server is up and running, since I am to connect to the server using the Webinterface and MB Mobile. The server is pingable from the client running MBC also I did a telnet on port 8096 to the server and its responding. I am running MBC and server Version 3.0.5050.37565 Also restarting the MBC server didn;t solve problem. In the MBServer logs there where no entry of the IP adress of my MBC client. Andy ideas..
  13. I was thinking about those of us like myself that still use extenders. If there was a way for MBS to recognize a particular extender based upon it's device name, (my device names never change) and then send an auto-execute command to itself on behalf of that extender and a preset login, that would be awesome. Then we could have user profiles, that are remembered by the system, like on Hulu or Netflix. As well as settings for MBS to remember and use whatever was the last login used or show the profile screen as normal. If this is already capable to this extent and I somehow missed this feature, please let me know.
  14. I don't know whether this is a settings/configuration/file structure issue on my end, but how does MBC (currently on B10-17.2) pass album art to the Windows Media Center player? Indeed, does it even need to pass album art. All my music is structured Artist/Album/Track, and all tracks have embedded artwork. But this is what I'm seeing: Playing a track from Media Browser Classic: And playing the same track directly from Windows Media Center: All art shows OK when browsing the MB server (3.0.5031.21343) via the web interface. What am I doing wrong/missing? EDIT - apologies for the language on the background waterfall images
  15. Is there a location under "ImagesByName" where icons/backgrounds can be set for the Favorite Books, Favorite Movies etc sections located under Favorites view?
  16. This is a minor thing but anyone else experiencing their actor images coming up as a generic icon only? I have a very large "ImagesByName" and thus "People" folder, in my ProgramData/MediaBrowser folder, that appears to be consistently updated but still nothing. Is there something that I'm missing. Just to provide background, I do not allow MBS to fetch my metadata as I utilize MCM, still. Thanks in advance.

    Show off your theme

    Media Browser supports theming very well and there are a number of great themes out there. Not only that but they are each very customizable in their own right. With that said, how do you have your Media Browser configured? This is how I have Throgsoft's Maelstrom configured. (Maelstrom - view: List, posters: Poster, Skin: Midnight) My movies list: A movie's details:
  18. A little tutorial for you all to launch MBC or MBT directly using a Logitech Harmony Remote, without having to write batchfiles, use 3rd party applications like intelliremote etc. If you have a Logitech Harmony Remote then this will (should) work for you, if you haven't already done it. Note: If you already have your MCE device set as MCE SE(special edition) you may not need to follow this tutorial from the beginning. Also it will add buttons to your "Additional Buttons" tab under your activity but these are easily deleted. It will not remove the buttons you already have saved. First off Open up the Logitech Harmony Remote Suite Then go straight to your devices after logging in and hit the settings button for your MediaCenterPC device. Next Select the "Set up this device base on another" click next Select the "I Don't have a remote" - this is important in order for the next step Click on the "View more similar devices" and a dropdown will appear. Ensure you select Microsoft Windows Media Center SE, this will add the extra options to you button mappings for you to chose from. Then Click Next after you have selected this. **These next step will set your Remote up so that you can Launch Media Browser from the Activity Menu.... Watch TV, MediaBrowser, Listen to Music, Listen to iPod etc. Cool huh!!** Now Select **Redo Setup for this Device** then follow the next few slides as they are shown. Until you get to the one with the writing on it. On the next screen click next and then read on STOP ---- Ok now this next slide is important as this will set you up to Launch MediaBrowser from the quicklaunch panel next to the StartMenu Orb. It's fairly self explanitary but you do have to put the MBClassic.exe shortcut in the QuickLaunch. The example below show how to set up MBC to launch using the Green button (MCEStartPage normally). You could use Movies Button to launch MBT if you so desired by adding MBT to position 2 in the quick launch and setting Movies to Win+2. This way you could have both MBC and MBT setup on your Logitech. And thats you done. Go and check your activity buttons and get them back to normal and then update your remote. You are done. Here is a list of what all of the extra mapping features allow you to do.

    Coverart & Boxsets

    Hi all, Coverart seems to be having issue with my boxset collection. It will effect the image for the folder in the sub folder correctly but it will not change the primary image. It only does this with my two box set folders. I am using CollectionFolder for the primary image treament and it does fine with every folder except boxsets. I've read other threads about this and tried the suggested fixes, ie removed and re added the collection...went into the root folder and made ensure it was deleted but nothing seem to work. Is there any other fix for this.
  20. I don't know where to put this, since you've guys created the new digs and I dont know if it was requested prior but is there a way to make a feature within the MBC configurator where MBS & MBC automatically detect the video aspect ratio (16:9 or 4:3) and in the event it's 4:3, automatically adjust the ratio to 16:9? I was watching old movies with my kids the other day and thought it maybe nice if that was an option in the configurator. Otherwise devs, good job all the way around with MB3. It's very well put together, given all the features and functionality it currently offers.
