Do you have to use a password to gain access to thie drive? If so, that password and user name need entered into the settings/SMB area of boxee so it can gain access.
Other than that, I'm clueless as to why. Maybe AgentLame has a suggestion.
Im not sure why it's not working... the only way I can actually view the list of tv shows that i have is if I go into the "files" open from the home screen. Here are some snapshots that should or I hope would help you guys understand the problem to help me out. Thanks.
Interesting. I just submitted a bug report about offline access earlier today.
On my 10.6 Mac, when no Internet connection is available Boxee simply exits (crashes?) shortly after launch (after second splash screen, but before menus come up). If Internet connection is lost after the app has loaded, then the app will exit within a few minutes, presumably when it goes to try to update some content or other in the background.
There's nothing in the Boxee log when this happens (well, there might be some error about being unable to open some URL. Maybe.)
I wonder if I'm the only one seeing this?
There's a bunch of other errors, i'll just post the log on here... http://www.filedropper.com/boxeelogCode:22:42:52 T:2961788928 M:1835937792 ERROR: CMetadataResolverVideo::ResolveVideo, could not resolve video by name, path = smb://LINKSYS/MyBook/TV Shows/The Simpsons - S21 E08.avi (videoresolver) (resolver) 22:42:54 T:2961788928 M:1835806720 ERROR: CMetadataResolverVideo::ResolveVideo, could not resolve video by name, path = smb://LINKSYS/MyBook/TV Shows/Casino The True Story.avi (videoresolver) (resolver)
You're replying in a thread that is over a year old and really no longer applies to any version of Boxee publicly available. Now, if you still happen to be running an alpha version...
