    Default Client device naming issue

    I don't know if there's a fix for this or what, so let me explain the problem.

    I have 2 Sony Playstations. I'd like to name them Sony Playstation 3 Room 1 and Sony Playstation 3 Room 2 or something similar. I am able to change the device name in Room 2, but not room 1. It always reverts to "Sony Playstation 3" on two different machine running Mezzmo. So, in essence my Media Devices dialog always shows Device Names of "Sony Playstation 3" and "Sony Playstation 3 Room 2". Even though the first Playstation 3 device name can be edited to whatever I want, when the dialog is closed after applying the change and reopened, the change never takes. After applying the changes, the server is restarted as well. I hope this is somewhat clear to give you an idea what the problem is. If not, let me know. Thanks.

    Can you please try this:

    1) stop the server, shut down Mezzmo
    2) go to the DeviceProfiles dialog (as per this thread: http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...ofiles-located)
    3) delete all .pro files there
    4) run Mezzmo, start the server
    5) connect from both PS3's and you should now have two entries in Media Devices for them (different IPs/MACs)
    6) rename the first one - when you click OK on the dialog check that a .pro file appears in the DeviceProfiles dialog
    7) rename the second one - you should now have 2 .pro files in that folder

    Does that work?

    Hello Dennis. The directory on Windows 7 had 6 .pro files. I deleted all of them. Started Mezzmo and PS3's. Device Profiles dialogue still has all of what was there...except with the default device profile. So I made all the necessary changes and new .pro files were created, but, for the first playstation 3 entry it always reverts back to "Sony Playstation 3" when the dialogue is closed and reopened under the Device Name column even though it was edited to something different. I can live with it, but oddly enough, I've got two of the same Samsung BRP's and I can name those devices to whatever I want just fine...just not the Playstation for some bizarre reason!

    It seems that the edited device name is copied from the Device Settings dialogue to the Device Profile dialogue in the case of the first Playstation 3 device, but isn't saved to wherever its name is saved, I presume the database. Surely that's odd.

    Yes, it's very odd - we'll try to reproduce it here. If you change it to something complete different, e.g. "abc" - does that work or still doesn't save?

    abc doesn't do it either. It just wants to be called what it is I guess!

    We'll investigate and hopefully resolve this annoyance.

    I am having exactly the same problem but with 2 humax PVRs
    The first device you can name freely but the second always resorts back to "Microsoft Xbox360"
    I also have an xbox 360 but I had to enter the details manually and there is no MAC address listed.
    As a final confusion, the ip address of the 2nd humax is wrong and displays the ip address of the xbox

    The only thing that seems to stick is the device profile.

    oh, and this must be a display thing because it all works on my system ie both humax devices and the xbox will find the server and play files

    I have a jpg of the "Media Devices" window which may make it clearer, but I can't seem to work out how to attach a photo

    If you use the "Go Advanced" button when replying to topics it should allow you to attach a photo (there's more options there as compared to the quick reply). We'll need to look at this issue and get it fixed.

    I'm surprised, frankly, that it works, if the IP is wrong and there's no MAC. Would love to reproduce this here

    Dennis,

    Finally managed to sus out the attachment stuff.

    jpg attached is a screen grab showing the device list
    I've blurred out the MAC addresses for my own peace of mind
    but you get the drift and also note the xbox doesnt show its MAC address at all
    I'm not sure if that's a clue to this

    Steve

    Thanks for the screenshot - we'll be investigating this issue and hopefully understand what's wrong.
