    Default Server Setup

    I have a xp computer at my disposal. I put my usb hdd onto it and also put some files on the hdd.

    To my disapointment the media on the external or internal hdd are inaccessable on either my t-box or wd tv live (gen1),but shows in mezzmo file system.

    Is it my setup or is the latest mezzmo have a issue with server based files???
    Appreciate any response or help with this, otherwise i may aswell throw out the spare computer concept.

    It is probably Mezzmo server (running as a Windows service under the Windows Local System account) not being able to access the files. Read this FAQ to fix this problem - http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...r-home-network.

    You can run Mezzmo from any PC as it will pick up any shared content across the network and make it available everywhere else.

    You'll want to consider these 2 things when you decide where to install it:

    #1 - The PC with Mezzmo must be on when other devices want to view the media so a 24/7 server is usually the best idea.
    #2 - You'll want to make sure that the PC with Mezzmo has a CPU that is powerful enough to transcode the video files

    Hopefully, your server has both of these covered. Otherwise a desktop that is always on or usually on during waking hours can fill that need.
