But then I would have to go through and rename everything AND update the database. For 150+ movies and growing, no thank you. Since LinuxMCE rips to the hard drive as a .dvd, that's what I have to work with.
Spending a few hours on this I have been reading up on the UPnP Server (MediaTomb) built into LinuxMCE and trying to wrap my (apparently very thick) head around it.
Found the admin page, selected file system, told it to import my /home/public/data folder per another post from these forums and now the content shows up, all of it. Flickr pictures as .jpg's look like pictures, MythTV shows recorded as .mpg's play without a problem. But, on my WD TV Live the .tnj's don't display, the .dvd.id3 and .dvd.keys.tar.gz won't play. To make this work I need to figure out how to not import the three attributes to the left, and set the transcoding to allow a .dvd (LinuxMCE ripped ISO) to stream to my WD TV Live in a format it understands. I might try putting my laptop on the MCE internal network and see what I can pickup from it (KDE 3.5.9 on Debian Lenny).
I might just be spinning my wheels trying to get this to work but with as many units as the local Costco had, I hope not.
