    Hi there,

    just tried the latest nightly on my WHS (r33429) and got the error "This application failed to start because MSVCR100.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem.". After a bit of googling I downloaded the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Re-distributable Package and that fixed it.

    Thought you might like to know.

    Red face Before i partake in 7.7 rc, I want to confirm some things.

    Before i partake in this next bugfest I want to confirm some things.

    Due to historical reasons my media directories are a bit off (or downright stupid)

    For music i have: /media/music

    This continues in /media/music/music2 wich is another drive really.

    For Playlist i have: /media/music/Playlists

    For photos and video wich I don't have on the server yet, the "music2" drive has most space.

    It will be

    /media/music/photos

    /media/music/music2/video

    Even I can see that this a little bonkers and admittedly not so ingenious. but a lot of other stuff would have to move around and playlist get fixed if I do a saner structure.

    Now as you can all see for example playlist is a sub directory of music .
    And photos and video will be too

    My Questions is:

    Is the scanner smart enough to tangle this out so that the music scan for example does not search for music in playlist directory ?
    or my planned photo or video directories .

    Do I dare to install 7.7 on this
    Is it ready to see this ungodly mess ?

    I have hopes that it will, it is a separate scanner for music and other media right ? so it might go just fine

    Any idea why it doesn't scan any of my MythTV video files ?
    I get messages like these for each file in the log:
    stat error on file /mnt/video_smb/The Big Bang Theory - 2011-09-11, 10-25 PM - Del 17 sńsong 4.mpg, errno=75

    The files are on a SMB read-only mounted network drive.
    I assume LMS doesn't need write access to the video files ?

    Any one have scanning times for their photos? I am currently scanning mine and it seems to be taking an age. According to image viewer I have 11980 photos scanned so far and it's been running 2:15 already.

    By the way, in server settings I get the following:

    Scanning new media files: \\TheMACServer\Photos (0) Running 02:17:54

    It would be nice to get a progress on the file count there (rather than having to look in image viewer). I guess this is a bug

    [Edit] had more problems with scanning and rebooted the server, much better afterwards. The above anomaly is now gone.Looks like picture scanning is a lot quicker

    I have installed the RC1 as well. Can anyone tell me which kind of video-files it actually recognizes?

    And shouldn't the upnp work on this version? I tried to connect to it with XBMC and it did find the server but couldn't show any of it contents.

    Okay I am not sure how I did this but:

    I added a second share for photos to the server. Started a rescan for new files. Stopped it and added a third share for videos. Started the scan again. And BOOM: Now the name for the server is gone. The shares are gone and I can't add them again!!
    Every time I add them again and starts a total rescan it starts the scan stops after a few seconds and the shares are deleted and the database contains 0 music, 0 videos and 0 photos.

    Hmm... that should be part of the installation. You didn't get the MS VC redistributable installation window then?

    You'll understand that processing two-digit megapixel photos will take a moment. The scanner does resize them to frequently used sizes - which can be slow under certain conditions (image file type, hardware etc.).

    The 0 total should be fixed in the latest nightly.

    that gives me an idea... Tivo will allow you to save your tivo recorded stuff to the readynas. if LMS could play those files, i could just install revues on my various TVs, which would save me a lot of money as i wouldn't need to install costly tivos on EVERY tv.

    will LMS play tivo files on a readynas?

    On RC1 there was a Image Viewer menu under Extras on Touch (Squeezeplay) - this menu has disappeared in 33449.

    Is this a bug or deliberate ?
