Media manager and 1.6.2 upgrade

Message 1 of 6

I have a 6416 mrdvr and have received the 1.6.2 upgradk and was forced to accept the mm upgrade. However I have no video tab in media manager, still can't stream video only photos and music.  Some peple are saying they can stream from Youtube with the old version of MM but had no video tab then either. And some people are having the same problem as I am. I am wondering if this is  a hardware issue (for ex: only the 7 serier mrdvr gets the video option and the the 6416  I posted to the verison direct but I guess this is not a  major problem as they have not yet responded

You will not be able to get the video tab until the new media manager software is out, not the STB firmware.

Are you saying that there "is" or "will be" new media manager software available??  Smiley Surprised  If so, when, if you know??   I was under the false impression (when first subscribing to Fios) that the media manager meant I could stream VIDEOS as well from my computer.   What a disappointment.  But if it's in the pipeline, that's at least a start.  I just hope it gets here before DVR'S WITH DECENT SIZED HARD DRIVES arrive. Smiley Mad

Yeah there will be a new version of the media manager software. It will support video streaming in most formats but divx, and xvid, as well as youtube streaming. It is currently in beta testing now. Thats all I know about it, I have not used it myself, and there has been no word on the release date.

i have used the new media manager software, if you look around in some places you can find it. its pretty terrible, i would rather just watch the video on my computer, or hook the computer directly into the tv.

 

 

For me, there is really no point in streaming a video that you can't fast forward/rewind. Not to mention that the UI that's a part of that software is abysmal.

I am a beta tester for Media Manager.  Most beta tester don't know that you have to change the settting for bit rate in the video settings to the highest setting, I think its about  5100Kbs. 

Anyway, the viedos are GREAT.  Smooth and no problems.  Also what testers have to realize is the quality of the video that is playing.  I use 720p vids, they are working great, I just finished watching Nemo and it looked good.

What I am saying is, give them a little time to work a few of the bugs out and to me it would be worth the extra $$.
