View Full Version : Canīt add Media Sources
October 21st, 2008, 11:35 AM
Iīm running Boxee on a Mac Pro 2,66.
In the Settings/Media Sources window I cantīt do anything.
I canīt select local sources, network sources, applications or manually add a source.
Thatīs bad because all my movies and music is stored on my second internal HD.
Boxee seems to see only HD 1 and the default Movies/ Music folders.
What am I doing wrong, downloaded Boxee today, so I guess itīs the latest version.
The wiki page doesnīt work for me, so sorry if this topic has been answered before.
Thx in advance,

for some reason for me it does not work correctly while using my mouse, but if you navigate using the keyboard, it should work (or at least it does on my comp)

there are some usability issues around mouse-based navigation... the boxee team is working on it.

aha! now it's working for me too. That was really frustrating. I would click on it and nothing happens. Now it works when I use the arrows to navigate.

I was able to figure out the keyboard navigation, but the problem I am having with adding a Source, is that when I scan sources, it does recognize Bay 3 or Bay 4. I also have a Mac Pro, and when I scan, it does see Bay 1 (boot Mac OSX drive) and Bay 2 (Boot Camp Windows Vista OS) but not Bay 3 or 4. Any ideas? Thanks

what about when you navigate to: /Volumes?

I had just found that, how long should it take for content to load? Thanks again

it'll take a bit... best recommendation:
leave boxee up overnight.
also, you can use boxee while it indexes your data in the background.
