I know I am doing something wrong here.
DVD on hard drive play fine on server and mediamvp
but not on placeshifter or tv client
I thought placeshifter worked before but now not sure.
Just installed TV client

Tried different codec but still errors.

Placeshifter does not support DVD playback.

To play hard drive based DVDs on a PC client, the client needs to be able to read the DVD files directly -- this means using UNC paths or mapped drive letters for the import dir containing the DVDs. (If using service mode, you can't use mapped letters.)
