Newbie Questions

Post by Curvman » Wed Apr 23, 2008 5:48 am

Is there a guide anywher for xbox 360 use? Do I simply play files from Media or do I use Media Center? I am not able to get .vob files to play so I am not even certain everything is installed correctly. I loaded progrm through module on Thecus 5200 but I am not sure what else I need to do from here. Any help or guidance would be most appreciated.

I simply installed Twonky on Ubuntu server. Setup where to find my audio and the Xbox 360 automatically finds it all when you go "Music - (X) Change Music Source - PVConnect".

With regards to VOBs. I dont think the 360 can play them. However, other media devices may be able to.

If you run Linux, you may wish to consider using DVD::RIP to convert your VOBs to xvid or something smaller :).
