Mediaserver and Popcornhour A-110

Post by vinylman »

I just installed the v4 of MM yesterday. It's a long time since I upgraded actually I normally run v3.06.1190 as I can still use bitrate as a column in that version.

I started the mediaserver functionality in v4 but it doesn't work as espected. My PCH A-110 plays cover art instead of music files. What can I do to make MM talk with the PCH and serve the files as music files instead of pictures.

Kind regards

I suggest you try again and create a debug log (step 4b) for the attempt and send it to support: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=69

Do make sure you're in the Music section of your client as many clients separate content types and will fail when in the wrong content type.

It seems I found the problem. It's a language problem, when using the A-110.

The music library is not called music in norwegian, and the A-110 doesn't regonize any music folder and as of that treat the files as documents and photos.

Now I have found the problem, how can I solve it?

I am not allowed to change the name of the folder called Musikk to music!

kind regards

Where are you trying to change the name? Are modifying a folder name on your PC, PopCorn, the Collection name?

In MediaMonkey, I try to change the collection name, as that's what shows up in the PCH it seems.

So when you change the Collection name it no longer shows in Popcornhour? Is the Collection still enabled under Tools > Options > Media Servers?

I need to change the name of the collection to music to make it work, and that seems not to be allowed in the free version.

Perhaps you have non-standard (ie accented like ø) in the Collection name? Although in Norwegian it would seem to be musikk.

It would seem to be a bug on Popcornhour's behalf if it only accepts Music. In any case you can create a debug log (step 4b) of Popcornhour accessing MediaMonkey's Media Server and send it to support: http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=69 Maybe the developers can see a way to fix this. I would still suggest contacting Popcornhour as well about this issue.
