  • @MichaelAngeloG3 said: TrueHD and DTS-MA will never output over Toslink. Exactly. But out of curiousity, because I have the 75x850c I thought I would see if I get 5.1 audio. I use a HTPC or Shield, I find the Sony too slow in respo…
  • PleXBMC is also free AFAIK

  • @cayars said: I think if you understand SAR, PAR & DAR it's pretty clear how to calculate the labels. I agree
  • I think the list is ok, did you use my formula? As leelynds said it's difficult to account for "fancy" resolutions that don't fit directly, but it's a good start. I developed a different formula that calculates the "screen area per storage pixel"…
  • And 720x364, if anamorphic 2.35:1, is 480p by my definition, not SD
  • @leelynds said: The problem is the "standards" thing. If we only accept "Standard" as the only true label, then only 1920X1080 are 1080p, 1280X720 are 720p, 720X576 are 576p and 720X480 are 480p. Let's stop this standards vs non-standard…
  • @leelynds said: That might work for some, but there would have to be a "fudge" factor, of course. Remember, though, not all sources are DVD, BluRay, and Broadcast. And there are probably thousands of sizes people encode at, and right or wrong i…
  • And you don't even need the box: let's not consider 4:3 material for a while, and let's consider the widely popular case of encodings with black bars removing. There's a magic formula that can help you: VERTICAL STORAGE RESOLUTION * DISPLAY ASPEC…
  • @leelynds said: I understand the problem with anamorphic rips, particularly when they have been cropped and keep the original pixel aspect ratio. Yes, using my suggestion of the 16X9 box, your PAL DVD would be labeled as 480p. My NTSC rip of th…
  • @leelynds said: Now everything transcodes, so it just doesn't matter. I've seen a few posts around the forums suggesting that more things are transcoding recently, to various clients that used to direct play. Coincidentally, resolution labels c…
  • @l88ch3r said: I'm curious to see the XML file of that video just to be sure there are no awkward encoding settings going on, but I doubt it... I could provide that, but I'm not sure it's something that's allowed to be post…
  • The box suggestion is good but the box escalation can be tricky: let's say you have a 16:9 anamorphic DVD with a 2.35 movie, you strip the black bars and you encode a 720x436 anamorphic 2.35:1 stream. This stream has the exact same resolution and vi…
  • @leelynds said: The video that @l88ch3r described at 1280X544 should obviously (in my opinion) be a 720p video, particularly when you consider the width. Doing the math, it appears to be a movie with 2.35 aspect ratio (1280 divided by 544 equals…
  • I try not to look at those figures anymore or I'll get too nervous
  • Also consider that the TOSLink connection (optical audio) has a limited bandwidth and while it can transmit 2 channel PCM, it can only transmit compressed (usually dolby digital on Sony) 5.1 and is probably not enough for any "HD" sound format. Also…
  • Since Plex takes its data from an online database, and since this online database is open for editing and submission, why not enter or edit the movie that has no cast/wrong cast in the database, instead of "fixing" only your own? In this way the cas…
  • Siccome se n'è appena parlato in un altra discussione, prova a seguire le istruzioni per fare un "clean install": https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/264610/sparizione-del-menu-server#latest
  • @ennio.montani@gmail.com said: grazie mille bubu, finalmente ho risolto!!! Ottima cosa! Avendo sempre usato PMS su Linux e non su Windows pensavo che bastasse disinstallarlo, invece come al solito il registro ci mette del suo! Buono a sap…
  • Il problema è che se non hai fatto il setup iniziale non c'è nessun server da trovare, ma se l'interfaccia non si apre al setup iniziale non hai modo di creare il server. Un bel circolo vizioso. Come è impostata la tua rete domestica? Hai firewall o…
  • @ennio.montani@gmail.com said: con l'url che mi hai dato tu mi dice "401 Unauthorized" se vado a http://127.0.0.1:32400/web/index.html mi apre la pagina web dove ricerca il server. Si scusa ho scritto l'indirizzo sbagliato... Quind…
  • Apri un browser sulla macchina dove è installato il server e vai all'indirizzo 127.0.0.1:32400/index.html o localhost:32400/index.html che cosa succede?
  • @dduke2104 said: Yeah, you can build an Intel-based NAS with some transcoding capability but I don't think that was the context that OP provided. "build an intel-based NAS with transcoding capabilities" = build a server tailored for Plex …

  • @nigelpb said: If you really want a device for a Plex client that is on general sale in Italy then the Apple TV is your best choice. Or the Nvidia Shield, but maybe it's a bit too overkill :O

  • @nigelpb said: Where do you live that the Roku 3 isn't available? You can likely buy one from Amazon. As an example in Italy you can't buy a "Roku", because Roku had a deal with Sky TV and you could only buy the "Sky Now TV" box which was…

  • Non sono un esperto di Plex su Windows perché lo uso su Linux Ubuntu, ma vedo che nel forum inglese ChuckPa ti sta rispondendo e credo che ne sappia molto ma molto più di me.
  • @gbooker02 said: Because of that, you have to change your update channel from Stable to Pre-release before you'll see this update through that mechanism. Done that but still it says that I have the latest version, is there some log I can …
  • 1.5.5.3634 sounds like the version of Plex Media Server, which is just a server therefore non skinnable. And the web interface is non skinnable too, you can tweak it with addons like Stylish but there's no skinning system for that. You can skin t…
