    Check Program Files\PS3 Media Server\renderers for examples, especially PS3.conf, which explains what each parameter is for.

    Hi zentraed,

    # Solved this part
    # How did you get bHome to recognise the PS3 Media Server? It will not detect it on mine, # did you change the .conf files? If so can you post the modified version for the Touchpad?

    Do you have the .conf file for PS3 Media Server handy? I have it all set up recognising the Touchpad, but my settings don't seem to be correct to transcode to mp4.

    I've had limited success with TVersity (unabled to get video to transcode correctly) the best way so far is to mount the network path and then use TouchPlayer, however this is a little messy as I love the interface of bHome and PS3 Media Server sets out the shares nicely.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Check out the ability of dragging folders onto the Music Player button.

    Sounds great but is there any chance of a Pre3 version? I have no intention of getting a tablet any time soon but I would use it a pre regularly.

    Does anyone know why the FREE version of bhome sees my nedia servers but the PRO version sees nothing???

    Does anyone know if these apps are coming to Pre3 and if they're going to get DLNA controller functionality (to browse your media on the TP/Pre and when you select play it tells your media renderer to play the media on your TV/stereo).

    Do somebody knows how I can set up TwonkyMediaserver for transcoding *.TS files (from dreambox) to mp4 format for touchpad?
    ffmpeg is already installed on the server and it's a Dualcore with 1GB Ram under Debian. What I have to config to be able to show the transcoded TS on webOS with BHome?

    Hey guys, I am new here, and I think I might be able to help with your touchpad DLNA transcode issues.

    PS3 Media Server works decently for the PS3, but I have run into many issues with transcode settings when using other devices.

    I recently went looking for other media servers and after testing a few I settled on "Mezzmo" ( Mezzmo - The Ultimate DLNA Home Entertainment Software ),

    Mezzmo instantly proved to be substantially better than PS3 Media Server. Quality was noticeably improved without any increase in buffer rates, and without a single tweak to the transcode setting. My PS3 was immediately recognized and assigned a device profile.

    Today I started up Mezzmo and was prompted with an auto-update request. The new version comes with lots of new device profiles including the HP Touchpad.

    It works flawlessly.

    The only thing I ran into was....The touchpad was not immediately recognized as a touchpad, so it was not assigned a device profile. By opening your wifi settings on the hp touchpad and tapping the network you are currently connected to, you will see your current ip address... In Mezzmo's Media Devices window you will see this ip address and from there you can assign it the HP Touchpad profile.

    Setting up a static Ip on the touchpad will obviously negate having to assign this profile every time your device is assigned a different ip.

    Hope this helps you guys out!

    If I run a fat Windows Server I can play the video directly on it ;-)

    Requirements for Mezzmo:
    Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows XP (32-bit and 64-bit), Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2003, Windows Home Server (WHS)

    Tink most of us have an Linux e.g. Debian as server. So a Twonky/ffmpeg trancoding would be a great solution.

    Hey I have tried Bhome & UPnP AV. I was able to view photos and listen to music on both from my pc. However, when I try to stream an MP4 movie it opens the player and shows 0 of (#of minutes movie is) and never starts playing. Am I doing something wrong? What setup do I need to stream movies from pc to TP?

    Unfortunately, both uPNP apps can only stream to the built in video player on the TP. This player can't play all MP4/H.264 files. Most of my library has been encoded H.264 using Handbrake's "Apple Universal" setting, which plays fine on all my iDevices. Very few of these will play on the TP, even though they are MP4 and H.264.

    I sure wish Kalemsoft would build uPnP support into their app...

    So how do you know what will play?

    I don't think there is any way to tell other than to try it. I'm not sure what exactly is causing my H.264 files to not play with the stock player, even though HP claims they play H.264. There are a lot of parameters to H.264, so obviously the Apple Universal setting runs afoul on some of them!

    My main focus was to get the TP to work with my Seagate Satellite wireless disk, which supports uPnP. I ended up installing Samba on the Seagate, and getting SMB working to mount the disk in a way for Kalemsoft to see it. It works quite well now, but it was a pain to figure out!

    Bhome finds my server, but never seems to connect. Its standard Windows 7 with a Squeezebox server.

    What else do I need to make it work?

    Just gave the trial a shot. No luck. All files show as unsupported.

    Found my own answer. In Windows Media Player, I have to set it to sharing. The Bhome app gave me the answer and I've now bought the product.

    I can't get my Synology Diskstation 211+ to work with touchpad running bhomepro. i have the local IP address but it doesn't automatically find it. i searched and searched synology documentation for port for media player application, but couldn't find a port #.

    any ideas since bhome pro doesn't automatically find the port?

    If have no problem whatsoever with BHome and my Synology DS107+. (DSM 3.1)
    It is detected automatically and connects flawlessly.

    We DO need either one of these for a full movie experience on the TP:
    - uPNP/DLNA client support in Kalemsoft Mediaplayer
    - Multiple codec support in BHome or uPNP AV Player!

    Are you saying Mezzmo does real-time transcoding on your computer or server as the file is playing on the Touchpad? So if I were to playback an mkv file it would begin almost instantly?

    I have just updated to the latest BHome Pro version, and I have been experimenting with the "send to" function.

    I already had "Air UPnP" running on a PC on my network and to my surprise (because I had forgotten I was running it!) Air UPnP shows up in BHome Pro as a destination for audio, and can be controlled with the Media Control option in the BHome top-left menu. This enables me to select audio on the TP and have it play on an Apple Airport Express elsewhere on my network.

    There's also a free UPnP renderer from the same site as Air UPnP and that also works with the latest release of BHome.

    There's clearly more work to be done on BHome's functionality in this area but what's now available does prove the concept of sending from TP to Airport Express without any help from Apple.

    Site for the free software I have mentioned -

    Air UPnP (control Airport Express as UPnP devices))
