I still enjoy my 1st Boxee connected to Synolgy NAS, where I keep all of media files. I created a separate FOLDER with dedicated *.TBN & *.NFO files for each movie title in my library. For the first time, BB had 100% success rate correctly identifying each movie that I had in my library, including some foreign film, mostly russian. I even managed BB to display my russian movie titles in russian by editing the NFO files.
Purchased 2nd Boxee for my brother and this is where I ran into a problem:
This time, I had to identify same media files stored on the local 3TB WD USB (NTFS) drive vs NAS (EXT4.) And Yes BB supports 3TB WD drives and sees all of it in one single partition. I think the secret is in its bytes-per-sector size of 512 that only WD drives currently support via special onboard USB to SATA bridge on their external myBook Drives.
BB displays blank movie thumbnails after scanning local USB source, but works fine with the very same files stored on my Synology NAS. These are how those movie files are named:
I even tried to identify those movies manually via displayed NFO option: it identifies & display the correct poster on the preview screen but then when I click OK it turns back to blank poster under local MOVIES screen. Reseting to Factory Defaults didn't help. What Am I doing wrong?
