Re: How to use TViXiE2Playon!HD
Running the Tvixie fetcher right now.
I actually use an additional media fetcher before I use the Tvixie one. The first one is Media Center Master
which is a fetcher that outputs for a Windows Media Center plugin called MediaBrowser. It outputs metadata in an xml format similar to XBMC. It gets my video drive on my computer looking like this,

I then sync this HDD to an identically sized one in my PlayOn!HD over Fast Ethernet. The drive in my PlayOn!HD is the one which I run the Tvixie against. I did not originally have all my files in their own folders and it would have been a pain to do it manually. Luckily I found this software that did everything for me with out hassles in a few seconds, AVI mover
. I actually used a slightly different one but I have used this one as well. Should work for any extension.
Couple things I would make sure of Frandaman if you have not already:
1. Make sure you use a HTPC for the model type.
2. Make sure you hit cancel when the PlayOn!HD asks you to update the jukebox.
3. Make sure the files are in their final position where the PlayOn!HD will read them from when runnning both Tvixie and the TvixietoPlayOn!HD software. I think it would matter.
I'll update post in a moment to say if I am successful.
Already ran into an issue. It appears that Tvixie scans the template you select and if that is no mention of frontcover.tvixie or fanart.tvixie in it, it will not fetch that data nor create those two files. And when it does do those it replaces my folder.jpg with the 147x200 pixel frontcover sized jpg. Might have to run the fetcher twice - once to create the necessary .tvixie files and another to update the media overview. Or write a script to take my large folder.jpg and create the front_cover.tvixie which is 270x400. Not sure if the fanart.tvixie is required yet. Still testing.
Not sure if the Tvixie2PlayonHD even uses the .tvixie files if you do not select them in options. Changed to standard 1080p builtin template to see if that is the issue.
Did you use the base HTPC 720p template?
I think I figured it out as being a simple path issue. Here is your working code for a jukebox entry:
<mediaURL url="/usr/local/etc/scripts/../../Movies/Astro Boy/Astro Boy.avi"/>
And here is what mine looks like:
<title>(500) Days of Summer</title>
<mediaURL url="/usr/local/etc/scripts/../..//Playonhd/hdd1/Movies/(500) days of summer (2009)/(500) Days of Summer (2009).mkv"/>
I think it has to do with me not mapping the hard drive to a letter and just selecting the location over the network like this:
