Thread: All media type folders showing up for every media type on my Bravia

    During the Twonky install it asks whether you want to have more than one media type in a folder. I'd prefer to only have Music in the Music folder etc. When using Mezzmo under the Sony menus, if you select a photo under the Sony Music folder it won't let you display the photo, you have to be under the Sony Photo menu and the Mezzmo Photo folder to view them. Having non relevant folders with media that you can't view is little confusing.

    It's not enough to stop me using Mezzmo, although I must admit if Twonky sorted out their ability to transcode Video, I would switch. Twonky's relevant menus, under the Sony Bravia, and the web interface for a headless Windows home server would clinch the deal.

    One other glitch the Mezzmo server under windows home server is occasionally stopping, causing an application error under the event viewer. Event ID 1000 "Faulting application MezzmosServer.exe version 2.1.8.0 faulting module.fault address 0x000005b41". It's happened a couple of times. I'll un-install Twonky to see if that is causing the glitch. Restarting Mezzmo solves the problem, but it's a pain having to log onto the WHS to restart it.

    (Hoping to revive this thread!)

    Just paid up for Mezzmo (v2.1.12) after a 10-day trial and I must give a shout-out to the s/w. It does (almost) everything I want and streams flawlessly from my headless Windows Home Server box to my Sony Bravia NX series TV!

    One reason I'm posting on this thread is, as JohnLayne and others before posted, Mezzmo displays all the active media repositories (Music, Photos, Video) even when browsing under specific media types on the TV (say: Music). Maybe this is a quirk of Sony's DLNA implementation, but if I select Music on the main XMB TV menu, it will not let me play any Video or for that matter view any of my photos - it only expects to play music (in this case .mp3 files). Therefore, showing all the media repositories (at least on the Sony) is a waste of time.

    Dennis posted above that the client does not inform the TV as to what "type" it is browsing. But I tried this with Windows Media player (version 11 and above) and WMP is able to filter out the other media folders. For instance, if I select 'Music' on the XMB menu, WMP will directly show me the playlists (Artists, Album, All Music Files etc...) under my Music repository. I even tried Twonky and it too manages to do this. Somehow, they are able to obtain information from the client (TV) as to what type of media is being requested.

    Hopefully, you can reproduce this on your setup with Windows Media player and a Sony DLNA client.

    (I have some other features I'd like to see added - but, I'll post that on the appropriate forum threads)
