WD Sharespace and PS3 Video Tree Issues

Post by bladedge » Sun May 02, 2010 12:16 pm

Hi, Im new here and i think im in the right spot so here goes,

I have a WD Sharespace running TwonkyMedia Version 4.4.9 connected to my network and my PS3.
I have my videos on the Sharespace in Different Folders eg

Movies
TV
Sport

however the PS3 just sees them as 1 big list so they all appear and play but arent separated
i have seen that a custom video tree can be created but i cannot get it to se individual folders on the HDD, if i create 3 folders then i get the 3 folders but cant seem to separate the data into those folders everything just appears! i Have also seen that i cant upgrade the twonky version as it is installed on a NAS.



Any help would be appreciated!

thanks

Hello, if you want to have folders the way you suggest then you need put the folders themselves inside a sharespace, i.e.:

Video\Movies
Video\Sport
Video\TV

with Video being the sharespace. You can actually call the sharespace anything you like or have multiple sharespaces all with videos in them because Twonky doesn't see it as a folder at all. I find this quite handy because i have a dual drive nas and my videos won't all fit on one drive. My NAS is a QNAP one but i'm sure it will work the same as yours.

Hope this helps.
