Yeah, I've tried the download option as well. I should have also said that the files will play locally from the default folder in .../users/appdata/roaming/...
It's only when I change the drive letter that I get the error. The trouble is I don't have 25GB to spare on my install drive. If all else fails, I'll scrap the whole XBMC install and load it on the other drive to make it work. I recall something about the install settings using the roaming data vs the default install path resulting in odd behavior with some plugins. I can try that, however I know it'll break another plugin I use. Still, if it makes a difference, I will note it here.
Reinstalled as portable to the drive with my trailers, still doesn't work.

Local trailers play fine for me. I have 70 or so in "D:\Trailers" :, set to update daily with Therms' awesome script :
The only difference I have to your settings arkryal, is that I have it set to play more than one trailer (5) and I also have a "coming attractions clip" before the trailers. Could just be worth a try I for you to add a clip for that i suppose.
Only problem I'm having is that HTE script doesn't seem to remember "watched" status for local trailers. Is this a confirmed issue or is it just me?
(I do not have .nfo's for each trailer, but each one is named moviename-trailer.mov)

This script is awesome. I have it setup now where I have the "Theater" tab in my movie information screen and I hit that to start my Home Theater Experience, one question though. Is there any way to set it up so that I get the HTE to run automatically everytime I start a movie from the beginning without having to go to the movie information screen?
Also why all the fuss about folder structure, isnt that selectable in the HTE settings? I have only setup the trailers so far, my mega pack torrent just finished and I will set that up later.

I can't get the script to work properly here..
The Apple Trailers (streamed) work fine - can adjust how many and they stream perfectly.
But anything else just seems to fail - No Intro videos, no rating videos, no dolby videos, no trivia.. :confused2:
I've tried to put only 1 File in each "audio" folder, I've renamed the ratings to "NR.avi" etc. and thought maybe there is a Problem with the ';' characters in the Audio Directory of the PACK.. nothing.
..here is a short excerpt from the log at the point where it doesn't work. If you need more Information feel free to request anything from me.

EDIT: I found the problem - smthg adds "\XBMC\" to the specified path for all Clips - maybe this could help smo else.
-> The videos are working now, except for the rating and the Trivia.

Ok, i think im missing something. i have read through all the threads but something is not making sense. Right now I am using the Transparency skin, so I have that all setup to launch the script. I also setup the properties of the hte script to only point to a local folder of ~/HTE/Ratings/ where I have png files such as R.png, G.png, etc.
When i go to the info tab and try to launch the movie with the added HTE button, nothing new shows up? I was hoping just to show the ratings prior to the movie starting just breifly? Not only that, but the wrong movie plays? I'm getting what would be the next movie below the movie i selected in the list.
Do I need to add a slides.xml file? Sorry for being brief, but I am running out of the house and can add a debug log if necessary. It seems like I'm just missing something very simple.

You may want a slides.xml file to get your images to appear in the right order, but images should show up even if you don't have one. With regards to the wrong movie playing, are you perchance queuing the movie before you go to video info? You don't need to do that anymore so maybe that's screwing things up...And I assume you have gone into the script settings and configured everything?

This part's easy....just follow the instructions posted by Ronie (Transparency's designer) here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=66006

Thanks for the tip. That worked for getting the correct movie to play.
However, I still do not see the png file showing up at all. I'm not sure what to put in the slides.xml and where to put it. My guess is I should put it in the ratings folder I have
here is my ratings folder:
xbmc@xbmc-desktop:~/HTE/Ratings$ ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 xbmc xbmc 91080 2009-12-26 01:31 G.png

here is the log of what happens when i try to load the movie...

you seem to have the same problem, that I'm having since yesterday..
there is an "XBMC" appended to your path - look right at your logfile:
Quote:21:07:51 T:3041851216 M:1406902272 DEBUG: HttpApi Start command: FileExists paras: FileExists; /home/xbmc/HTE/Ratings/R.avi
.. is anyone willing to explain to us why that happens and what possible we could do?
- except for duplicating the whole folder - which is my solution for now..
- messywrk - 2010-01-21 18:05
coming back to the trivia problem:
Quote:16:46:55 T:4136 M:4294967295 DEBUG: HttpApi Start command: FileExists paras: FileExists; Q:\XBMC\data\_trivia\screenquiz1\slides.xml
This is the LOG when I just add the folder without any slides.xml.. as to be expected it just plays the various pics as a slideshow - everything is a question.
now I'm adding that slides.xml to the Folder where the pics are located:
..looks correct, doesn't it?
Quote:16:48:46 T:6592 M:4294967295 DEBUG: HttpApi Start command: FileExists paras: FileExists; Q:\XBMC\data\_trivia\screenquiz1\slides.xml
while this is the outcome. NO slides at all. :mad:
Pleeeease help me and tell me what I'm doing wrong!
