- Not all files are ever picked up by the TM server. A rebuild or rescan may or may not pick them up or drop them.
- This is related to the first bullet. I copied my entire media collection (pictures, videos and music - 100+ GB worth) from my TS-101 to the TS-209 Pro but decided to leave both TM servers active. Both were seen by the CS505 but the files they displayed were very different. Some files three levels down are not picked up by the TS-209 Pro but are picked up by the TS-101. Most folders four levels down are not picked up by the TS-101 but are all picked up by the TS-109 Pro. Why the discrepancy? A 0.0.2 difference in TM firmware revision?
- Nowhere have I found mentioning a limit to folder levels with the TM server. Even a search of these forums only mentions others indicating levels, no limits. I see limits on nodes but not on folder levels. Why a limit? The CS505 hangs (fortunately not always a crash) on both TM servers when trying for more than four levels down. I know everything is cool to play there because the CS505 has SMB shares and when enabled can go deep and play anything (I see everything as well). Of course this is not what I want to use, I wish to use the TM server.
- None of the Internet radio works through the TM server. Fortunately the CS505 connects by it's own firmware to Shoutcast but I am curious why it doesn't work through the TM server. I admit, this could be the CS505's fault.
- (I will probably sound clueless but what the heck) There are types you can filter by for video such as Genre, Description, Keyword, Title, Album, etc. Some display the file name. Some like the Date, Month, Day works great. But some get no display except under "- ALL -". I understand many picture format's, like EXIF for JPEGs, and music formats, like ID3v1 and v2 in MP3s, have lots of information you can pick out for this filtering but where is this information in video formats?
- What is the difference between pre-configured navigation trees of small, advanced and customized? (I am not interested in anything to do with the iPod) The explanation only mentions when you should use them, not what they do. Do they allow more nodes?
- I entered 5 nodes for the video tree once as it mentions that's the limit but after saving a blank sixth line comes up. Does this mean it can do more nodes? Why display if it says five is the limit? Is there any limit on the levels within a node? I did 10 and it accepted the changes but I was just curious.
- Is there a user manual for describing where all the types (Genre, Album, etc.) come from? Date, Month, etc are obvious, they come from the file last modified date but not the others. There is little in the configuration screens and no other information downloads anywhere (only downloads on how to install TM server - which is already done of course).
