Over the weekend, I got got a dvd burner that included a version of nero
6 that included showtime 2. From the wiki showtime 2 is supposed to be
a UPNP client. So I thought it was great that I might be able to access
the media on mythtv from a windows box. I'm running 0.20.2 on gentoo.
I was able to connect to mythtv after configuring the firewall, it
listed videos, music, and recordings. Music worked fine, videos, I
didn't really check because my dbase was out of date. The recording
listing was pretty nice you can search by title, date, genre and a
couple other means. I was able to play back some recordings and not
others, the magic seems to be based on the file size. Anything over 2
gigs doesn't seem to play. Unfortunately only .5 hr shows are less than
2 gigs using the quality level I use. HD, well...
Has anyone else had any luck with showtime? I'm tempted to download
showtime 3, which is bundled with the rest of the nero package as a
demo, all 173 megs of it. Before I commit to such a big download and
possibly screwing up my existing nero install, I'm looking for some feed
back. I'm looking for a software UPNP client for windows, the ones
suggested in the wiki all had there own hangups.
