    Default Newbie needs help, Strange icon appeance in Mezzmo and on TV.

    I've looked through the Forum , please forgive me if this has been covered elsewhere and I've missed it, also sorry for the length.

    Windows 7 64 bit PC, 16 gig RAM, connected to Virgin Media Super Hub (Cable Modem & Router) wirelessly (802.11N)

    LG - HB905PA Blu-ray 5.1 home cinema system wired to the Super Hub and connected to Samsung 40inch 1080 TV via HDMI cable.

    The ancient Nero Media Home supplied with the LG kept dropping the connection so I looked round for a more recent DLNA server, I tried a few which I didnít like and eventually found Mezzmo, fired up the trial and was very impressed, so much so I bought a licence.

    It works perfectly, the only problem I have is an occasional lock up which Iím sure is the fault of the LG, this doesnít happen when streaming just when accessing the menus on the LG.
    Iím totally satisfied with Mezzmo, there is one weird thing which happens but doesnít cause problems.
    I didnít use the three pre-set categories; I set up my own, LPís - CDís, Digital Photos, Misc Photos, Radio - Sound Bites and Video. Video has sub folders for the grandchildrenís cartoons, HD films, foreign language films etc.

    From within Mezmo the icons appear OK but in the HD films section when viewed on the TV three or four of the art work icons appear twice, they both work if selected and they arenít a problem but I wondered if this is a known fault.

    While checking before posting I also noticed several of my CD collections within Mezzmo have an album cover with the likes of AlbumArt(lots of characters) as the name underneath, right clicking and selecting play just brings up the picture, these aren't in the actual folder on my PC.

    Again not a problem but I would like to get rid of them. These all might be a result of my system but if anyone else has any ideas Iíd be grateful for their comments.

    Thanks in advance
    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    If you added your files using Add To Library -> Add Folder, then by default the Add Folder dialog will add all types of files (i.e. photos, videos, & music files). In your case, you may want to filter each folder you have added so that only music files are listed in the LPs - CD's folder, only photos are listed in the Digital Photos folder, and so on. To do this, right-click on the folder in the tree in Mezzmo and click Properties. In the Folder Properties dialog, you will see the File filter edit box that lists the types of files that this folder will contain. Click Presets button and you can change the filter list to list just photos, videos or music. This should help list the files you want.
