Not if you force movie to play in DTS.
Also, the settings are not saved, if you would like to change settings during playtime. Settings to prefer DTS instead of AC3. Also when i choose speakers, 5.1 it gets 7 in the guisettings.xml , impossible to get 5.1 for me at least.
I use Keiths build, so I chose to write a post here, seemed to be the proper way. If you want to report it please go ahead.
Problem with accessing video files from SMB share - Italo Disco - 2011-02-25 19:26
Using XBMC 10.0-7 on ATV2.
I have a PC with a shared folder that contains some TV series. Some episodes can be seen when using the ATV to play an episode, whilst others simply don't show up at all !? These episodes all have the same technical aspects (all H264 1280x720 with AC3 sound in an MKV container). There are no 'strange' characters in the file names.
I've tried all kinds of things, and looked at the debug logs. I cannot find anything that would point me in the right direction. It simply looks as if the ATV does not see all files in a folder that is being accessed via SMB.
I've tried accessing the episodes using XBMC v10 installed on that same PC, and that goes well. I've created a video library on the PC and unloaded it into a file. I then manually updated the links from a drive:\folder to smb://sharename in the xml file and transferred it to the ATV2. In XBMC I then imported the library. I now do see all episodes, but only the ones I already had in the library before can be played. The others don't play at all.
Is anyone else experiencing the same?

You're having the problem in library mode right? For troubleshooting, can those files be seen and accessed via the "Video" menu? That would be my first test.
See if you can see the file, and secondly, play those file. Then we can narrow down whether it's a library issue of smb issue. Or possibly, something else entirely. But those are the troubleshooting steps I would employ.

dazex Wrote:Italo Disco,
The symptoms are the same in library mode as in non-library mode. When updating the library on the ATV2 not all episodes are discovered. When using non-library mode I can navigate to the series folder, and it shows the proper series fanart.jpg and folder.jpg but it does not show all episodes, it only shows a few. I also have folders of which all episodes are shown, as well as folders of which none of the episodes are shown.
Loading a library onto the ATV2 that has been built on a PC with XBMC will result in all episodes being visible on the ATV2 library, but not all of them will actually play. The non-library display will then only show the few episodes that do play.
I've posted a complete debug log of my actions at http://pastebin.com/eYaQAq17 in which you can see that only episode S07E06 plays, and the others of that season do not.
Edit: These two log lines are probably an indication of what goes wrong

Check to make sure you're not reaching a path+filename character limitation in the smb protocol.
On the file that you're having trouble playing, try shortening the filename to see if it works. If it does, then you've narrow down where the problem is.

Same thing happened to me on transferring my music library over
example: address on my Windows PC
smb://192.168.1.10/media/music/The Aliens/Astronomy for Dogs/Intro.mp3
on the ATV2
all spaces became "%20" and periods (.) became %2e. Don't know how/if this can be fixed

Is this somehow in a way related to my post here?:
My problem came about because of moving my library to a windows machine and then back to the atv.

No. Although I did have that problem with my video library (also transferred from PC), i.e. not being able to add new content; what was already there played absolutely fine. I did the fix described in that thread for adding new content to the video, and that now works, but it was never really the problem for the music.
I did wonder if it was related to this:
but then if that's the case why were the video librarys' addresses maintained in the correct format

Is it just me or do the links for the latest versions not work right now?

No, not just you. Seem to be down for me too. The last build here isn't the most recent build available though. The last official build was on 19th Feb, last unofficial build (this thread) was 17th Feb, so if you're just after the most recent build then try these instructions:
