I'll start with an apology. I think that forum etiquette requires member to give as much as they get, and I'm in negative numbers at the moment. All I can say is that my ultimate goal is to have a working system, contribute to the wiki, and take on some development responsibilities.
Now that my remote is working, I'd like to be able to play a DVD. I've installed libdvdcss2 and I can play a DVD in my basement using the drive installed in my hybrid core. However, my main TV is on the second floor. Next to my TV, I have a USB DVD drive connected to a hub, connected to a USB extender, connected to the core. Some might doubt that such a scheme could work, but it worked great a few weeks ago. I could use the menu overlay to pick "manage disk drives" and I would see the DVD on the core, and also the USB drive. I could insert and watch a movie using either drives. Now all I see is the drive installed in my core.
I looked in the wiki manual to see how I could fix it and found "Normally everything is setup for you automatically. If you're experiencing problems, go to Wizard > Devices > Media Directors and be sure the appropriate media players are checked and a disk drive is checked." I did this and looked for a place to put a checkmark, but there was no such option.
