  1. In the forum, I've seen various answers for the blue lines in MB Classic. Is there one definitive solution I can use to solve it? On my PC, I can see Over/Underscan in advanced options, but I don't see that on my XBox. Thanks!
  2. Hi, I've been using XBOX 360 as an extender and now i'm having pause/resume/skip issues. It seems that only transcoded files from server are unable to pause or skip. When I try it I receive an error and have to start from beginning. But when files are "Direct Playing" pause/skip.. works Do you have any solution to my problem? Reg, Arni Thor

    Error when on Xbox 360?

    Hello everyone, I just recently found out about Media Browser 3 from a friend and have set it up at my apartment. It works VERY well and I'm really pleased with it overall. We're having one issue that I can't seem to figure out. Our current setup is as follows: MEDUSA is our server box. It has 2 Shares setup on it, TV and Movies. MB3 is installed there. BEHEMOTH, BALANCE, LITANY are 3 Desktops that connect to MEDUSA MB3 Server through Windows Media Center. They all work fine! XBOX360 downstairs connects to BEHEMOTH as a Windows Media Extender. Media Browser shows up in the list of activities and loads properly. However, any content we click on results in a "Warning could not directly access media. Will attempt to stream." message. Examples of the share UNC Paths are: \\LocalNAS\Admin_Data\My Music \\MEDUSA\Movies \\MEDUSA\TV We are running: (Server) MediaBrowser Server Version 3.0.5115.35703 (Clients) MediaBrowser Classic Version 3.0.100.0 B12-4.1 Steps to Reproduce Error: Turn on Xbox 360 Launch Media Center on Xbox 360 Select Media Browser Select a Library Select a Title Select a File Click Play Wait 30-60 Seconds Error message appears Log files from Server & WMC Client associated to Xbox are here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3zbh0a6i840toge/dz02PcxkIi Any recommendations would be appreciated. I have followed guides here: http://mediabrowser.tv/community/index.php?/topic/703-how-to-make-unc-folder-shares/ http://community.mediabrowser.tv/permalinks/1227/which-movie-formats-does-the-xbox-360-support-do-i-need-anything-special If you need any other information please let me know --- if I can get this working I'll be thrilled and I'm sure to consider trying the Android app as well!
  4. Well, With the holiday season here there are deals everywhere. I am running a media "server" that has MB3 installed. It also has Windows 8.1 with media center so I have MB classic installed as well. This empowers me to connect to my Xbox 360 an extender. I have 2 servers setup and 3 Xbox' as well. My question today is should I plan to move away form Windows media center and use MB only that streams to a box located at my TV? Kids have Ipad mini's and we are streaming to them with no issue, thank you for the app. So with all the boxing day specials what is the best box to use for streams, I assume an android based box. Server is too far away to run an long HDMI cable. Thanks in advance. m
  5. Running server v3.0.5099.2102 & MBC v3.0.103.0 B12-19.1 When I send something to the MBC on my XBOX it plays fine. But the XBOX will start to go into power save mode and have to keep awake with the controller. Anyone else having this issue?
  6. ABOUT MODERN8 Modern8 is a metro inspired theme for Windows Media Center. It uses Patchou's Media Center Themer to apply the new and improved UI Modern8 is unique to many other Media Center themes (see details & screenshots further below): Improved modernized UI experience – clarity and usability comes first. No more fogs or ‘glass buttons’. No more blue. 500+ images have been completely redesigned or retouched Includes genuine Microsoft Xbox One navigation sound effects All new bar design for on-screen media controls Choice of 5 different accent colours – standard (black), blue, green, orange and red. A light theme is also included Splash screen animation with flattened logo (alternate files are provided if you prefer the new official Windows logo) There are NO changes to any system files, so there is minimal risk of corruption. It is also extremely easy to apply to your system, in less than a few minutes you can have a modern Media Center experience! And like all Media Center themes, Modern8 is entirely customizable so you can easily tweak Modern8 to your design tastes. It already includes some alternative artwork to try, just mix and match. Please, if you have anything to say, be it good or bad: contributions, suggestions or problems – let me know! (: DOWNLOAD LINKS via MediaFire v1.3 - January 30th 2016 24MB http://www.mediafire.com/download/1oy02koillba1le/Modern8_1.3.zip *Please note, an alternative XML file is provided for no string changes/non-English users. ​-Small improvements to start-up sound & animation ​-Action icons are coloured when highlighted (e.g. record, delete, review conflict) ​-Changes to guide record icons to improve contrast (red/yellow/blue instead of red/orange/blue) ​-Program info panel background (see last screenshot) covers the whole screen -New loading animation spinner Remember to remove any existing Modern8 files beforehand, and backup the files if you have done any of your own customising If you notice that some text is not being recoloured to white from the default blue (especially if using an extender): Remember to also check out The Green Button Modern8 Thread INSTALLATION AND REQUIREMENTS 1 Download and install Patchou's Media Center Themer (v1.51 mirrored copy from MediaFire http://www.mediafire.com/download/3v2ers338cx0f3r/MediaCenterThemer_1.51.zip) For Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 (Media Center editions) and Windows 10. 2 Download and extract all of the contents of the most recent Modern8 zip file (v1.3). 3 Copy the contents of the extracted zip file to C:\ProgramData\Media Center Themer\ or use the shortcut provided Remember to remove any existing Modern8 files and the MCTDefault.xml beforehand (but backup the files if you have done any of your own customising) 4 Open the newly copied Modern8 folder and run the registry file WindowsSetNewDefaultBeep.reg This works exactly as if you were to change the default beep via Sound settings and can be just as easily undone. You may need to logout or restart afterwards. 5 Enjoy And if you really like Modern8, you can donate via PayPal and help me pay for my studies (or at least a drink or two!) Special thanks to TheOsburnFamily and JBL!

There is also a ‘light’ theme available (but this doesn’t have the same polish or ‘completeness’ as the standard theme) And of course, you can mix and match UI elements quickly and easily to suit your preferences Start screen with metro icons. Tiles are colour coded into their respective categories (Settings, Music, Video, etc) The background image animates in a subtle glowing cycle Entirely new bar design for on-screen media controls Media Center TV guide (Just note that I'm also using My Channel Logos to change the guide layout – this is not part of Modern8) Among other minor changes Extended time format Improved ‘now playing-hinting info’ for TV – text should no longer be cut off for long titles A few text changes (English only) for clarity and/or aesthetics LIST OF MEDIA CENTER SUB CATEGORIES WITH ENHANCED MODERN UI Picture favourites Picture library Video library Music favourites Music library Music search Movie guide Movie library Movies search DVD TV guide Recorded TV TV guide search Power options Settings LIST OF REVISED STRINGS (does not apply to the NO STRING CHANGES/NON-ENGLISH VERSION) old string new string shut down power options sync sync device search search music search search guide search search movies VIEW CATEGORIES GUIDE CATEGORIES All All Channels other showings showings Resolve Conflict Review Conflict resolve conflict review conflict Programme Details Details programme details details programme information information (changed to 'info' since v1.3) interactive tv interactive Exit Exit Media Center Log Off Sign Out LOG OFF WINDOWS SIGN OUT OF WINDOWS Are you sure you want to log off? Are you sure you want to sign out? View Song List Now Playing List TEXT [empty/blank string - replaced with a graphical icon on the media controls bar. This is still included with the NO STRING CHANGES VERSION] LIMITATIONS - PLEASE READ FURTHER DETAILS MAY BE FOUND IN THE CONTAINED README FILES Media Center includes most of its own sounds, however it still uses one sound which is shared by the Windows OS: the 'Default Beep' The included .reg registry files can quickly change the 'Default Beep' to the provided Xbox One sound effect found in the Modern8 Audio directory. The .reg registry files work exactly as if you were to manually change the 'Default Beep' via the Windows control panel; but obviously much faster! Much of Modern8’s text elements have been colourized white. This may be an issue for other add-ons such which contain predominantly light backgrounds. Alternative files are provided for darker text if needed. If ENGLISH is NOT your operating system language, you should choose the NON-ENGLISH version to download. Modern8 makes a few subtle language changes. As mentioned briefly above, the included ‘light’ theme currently doesn’t have the same polish as the standard theme – I have just quickly inverted the colours of the standard theme ORIGINAL WORKS I DID NOT create everything from scratch myself, details of original art sources are included in the corresponding README file Big thanks to Keef and his un8y theme, which inspired Modern8. It was a great template and an inspiration for me to make this theme. (I also grabbed a few of your icons )
  7. (I originally posted this on the old support forums for MB2 but I think it's still relevant info. Hopefully it can get added to the tutorials.) If you're like me, you use MB over your XBox 360 and if you're like me you've had nothing but issues with your MKV files especially as of late. These are my finds and they are based upon the fact that you have a properly installed MB and are already capable of watching some MKV files on your XBox, these fixes are only to correct specific issues. ***Problem #1*** "ARGH! My MKV plays but it's stuttering like crazy."* (Jerky video playback) ***Solution:*** This is most likely caused by either subtitles or menus added to the MKV file. To correct this. Download MKVToolnix and use mkvmerge.exe to remove the subtitles and menus like this; - Open mkvmerge GUI and load your problem MKV - Uncheck the boxes next to any subtitles or menus. - Make sure the check marks next to the Video and Audio stream are still checked and hit "Start Muxing" The resulting file should play with no issues at this point. ***Problem #2*** "OMFG WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS STUPID THING?!?!? I have audio but no video.* (Audio is playing fine but the screen is black) ***Solution:*** Don't know how or why but this fixes it; - Open mkvmerge.exe and load your problemed MKV (mkvmerge.exe is a part of MKVToolnix) - Click on your video stream under "Tracks, chapters and tags:" - Click on the "Extra Options" tab and for "Compression" select none. Do the same as step 3 for the audio stream. - Make sure the check marks next to the Video and Audio stream are still checked and hit "Start Muxing" The resulting file should play with no issues at this point. ***Problem #3*** "Ok I've tried everything and nothing works. 'Bounces head off desk'."* (No worries, you're not alone.) ***Solution:*** You unfortunately may need to re-encode your video files. This isn't as scary as you might think and as long as you're running a decent computer it shouldn't take more than a couple hours to re-encode your file. Here's what to do; - Grab a program called Handbrake and a program called MediaInfo and install them. When installing MediaInfo select "Text" for Output format. Once you've installed Handbrake change the "Priority level" to Normal in options under the "System and Logging" tab. - Drag and drop your video file onto the MediaInfo icon and remember one bit of info, under the video section, "Bit rate" - Now drag and drop your video file onto the Handbrake icon and change the "Output Settings" to "MKV File" then reference the following links to set the rest of the settings. Video Tab, Audio Tab, Advanced Tab - With all these settings set I recommend saving the profile for future use. Then the only thing you need to set each time is the "Bit rate" on the "Video" tab. - Press "Start" and wait for your encode to finish. I strongly recommend leaving your computer alone until it's done. (If you use my settings exactly, you will see no difference in the video quality of your file and it will play perfectly on the XBox.) *If none of this works for you, maybe you've found a new problem for me to beat my head against the wall about. lol Post it in here and I'll try to help you.* **My Setup Is** - Intel i5-3350p - 16gig of ram - 20TB Raid 0 (Where all my videos are stored) - 256GB SSD (Where Windows/MB3 are stored) - Win 8.1 Pro 64-bit - Shark007 Standard Codecs (32bit and 64bit v1.7.6 at time of posting this) - XBox 360 (I do not use Transcoding and all files play over the 360) - MB3/MB3 Classic - Current Release I find it doesn't matter what bit rate your files are at or size. I play files well over 7GB on my xbox with 5.1 audio with no issues. Make sure you have the "Optional Media Update" update found in the xbox live market place installed on your xbox it allows for AAC audio and a few other things it doesn't talk about.
