Exo2 Media Player

I discovered today that there is a SageTV App for FireTV devices (The Cube, in my case). It works great except in one area... when starting a recorded show, I get the message "Exo2 Media Player error." (There is more but it only flashes on the screen and that's as fast as I can write) and then the screen goes black. (An anomaly: I tried four recordings and on one it worked as expected.)

What am I looking for to fix this?

You need a new Sage.jar to go along with it.see thread above. I bet you also need the new SageTVtranscoder plugin.

I placed the Sage.jar (beta) from the Patreon site into the SageTV directory. I have v1.0.5 of SageTVtranscoder plugin already installed. V1.0.6 says "Not Compatible" and won't, of course, let me install it.

Still no joy. I tried a bunch of bunch of recordings. Interesting is that a few (very few) worked without issue.

FWIW, with the Shield device the SageTV App only failed with a single recording. All others played without issue.

Try setting streaming to fixed and go into the transcoding settings and change it to always. This will force it to transcode. This will likely fix the problem if the cube does not like the content.

Again, it is over my head. (I am a User not a Tinkerer) The only mention of Streaming is in that old SageTV User's Guide in the Placeshifter Section. I have never set up Placeshifter. Can you lead me through what you are suggesting?

BTW, the Cube, Shield, HD300 and SageTV Server are all wired to a LAN. There is an additional Shield that is connected to the same LAN by W-Fi -- it plays SageTV recordings as expected (like the HD300 & wired Shield).
