Re: Buffalo LinkTheater PC-P3LWG/DVD not working on vista
Yes I found the solution. This took quite some hunting. Tried Windows
7 media sharing, but does horrible job transcoding to what LinkTheater
says it can support (I'm using this on an old SD TV in the bedroom).
Tried two different networked media servers. Best one of these was
wizdxp, but gui on LinkTheater box was bad. Finally found that
"myiHome" program _IS_ the offspring of the old LinkTheater program I
had running on my old XP system serving the media files to the Buffalo
LinkTheater box for years. Same look on application screen. Same
Preferences dialog. Same video Watch folders. This also came with
64-bit version that runs on Windows 7. Came with a couple of "skins,"
neither did a good job on the gui for the small screen. Then - leap of
faith - I copied the "webapps\ROOT\theme" folders from an installation
of the old LinkTheater program files folder into the new myiHome program
files folder and wa'la ... The myiHome recognized the old LinkTheater
files as another available skin for myiHome, and it worked !!
Lost one feature which was the list of pages that were identified by
range of file numbers on the top of long list of titles. This was
handy, but new software allows typing in number, such as 61 - to go to
the 61st title in the list, so I think this is better.
I hope you find this posting before you spend the hours I did trying not
to have to go buy another media player!!
