    Default Best Device profile for Surface RT Tablet

    Does anyone know the best device profile to use for a Microsoft Surface RT tablet? It doesn't seem to like transcoding. Currently got it set to Xbox 360 as that seemed the most likely to be compatible.

    Many thanks

    Other Surface owners report they are getting good results with the Xbox device profile. However, we can create a dedicated device profile for the Surface. To do this, we'll need to know a few things from you:

    • A set of Mezzmo logs when you browse & play a file on your Surface. Turn on logging in Mezzmo (see http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...nostic-logging) and restart your Mezzmo server. Connect to Mezzmo from your Surface and browse some folders/playlists and play a few files. Then, stop your Mezzmo server and exit Mezzmo. Zip up all the logs and email them to us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com.
    • A list of the video formats, audio formats, image formats and subtitle formats that the Surface supports. Include as much information as you can find - such as codecs, bitrates, sample rates, max resolution, etc. Email this to us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com.

    Once we get this information, we'll create the device profile and let you try it.

    Thanks for the reply Paul.

    Turned on logging, and found that the RT device was terminating the connection. Don't know if it's an artefact of the client software (I've tried Multimedia 8 and StormPlay RT) or something else getting in the way:

    The above shows a pre-transcoded file being played from "Multimedia 8" on my Surface RT device. M8 keeps on going on the device, even when the connection has been dropped. I would suggest testing this on your own test-rig, as you're more likely to determine the cause of the issue quickly. I'm not sure it's Mezzmo's fault, but you guys will get to the bottom of it faster if you test using your own kit.
