MediaSmart Connect x280n streaming from a MediaSmart server

Post by helrazr » Tue Jun 30, 2009 4:40 pm


So I am streaming video from an HP MSS ex470 running TwonkyMedia Server 5.0.2 to an HP MediaSmart Connect X280N. It works just fine except I am having a heck of a time trying to figure out what the X280N uses to display information about any given video. It isn't drawing the information from an XML file but it seems to me that there should be way to include a description of a given video. The button is there on the remote and displays cover art (as long as it is named folder.jpg residing in the folder where the video is stored).

Does anyone have any information they could share as to how I can add descriptive information about videos and display it using the X280N? I've been working on this for some time and am ready to give up except I can't the wife insists I should be able to figure this out. Any clues whatsoever would be most welcome. I'm wondering if the movie description must be some how embedded in the movie file itself?

Thank you!
