FYI - You will need to do this using the copy mode.

I tried to create a new menu item using the "PlayON (needs Plug-in)" item and it won't work. I also don't see how to easily create the correct option if I was trying to create the choice from scratch.

Yeah, I also realize this isn't "PlayOn" but "UPnP (PlayOn) Browser"
"Unencumbered by the thought process"

The only constant in the Universe is change.

Well, I'm up and running with PlayOn and the UPnP Browser. I can download and watch shows, so all is great.

I do have one question: regarding file naming convention.

The TV shows have an underscore (_) instead of spaces, so a show like "Mad About You" is saved as "Mad_About_You". Also, there are other characters in the saved filename such that Sage doesn't scrape the metadata. The full filename looks like the following:

Mad_About_You - s01e01__The_Kid_Leaves.mpg

I see the shows in the TV folder, and all play just fine, just that the metadata doesn't show up. I've looked at the UPnP settings, and don't see where I can adjust / edit this. Anyone have ideas or solutions?

Does anyone have info on how the &#%@#% to get this working? I have the plugins installed (both "UPnP (PlayOn) Browser" and "UPnP Support," both listed as by tmiranda. I somehow got a menu entry for "PlayOn" (standard STV, and used ADM to get the menu entry there in the first place) but when I click it nothing at all happens. Nothing, Nada, Zilch. I also, of course, have PlayOn installed on the same box as my Sage server.

I also have a "Up&P browser" menu selection, which finds the running PlayOn servers. I can browse & play recordings from the PlayOn server that happens to be on the same computer as the one on which I'm running a placeshifter client, but although it also shows the PO server that shares computer as my Sage server, it s hows only a list of "Unknown Title" folders which it says are empty. But there are real, non-empty folders there. So I can sorta browse & play stuff I've already recorded using PlayOn (though it's easier to do that by accessing imported videos, since PO's download location is also a video import location for Sage.) Is that all this is supposed to be able to do or is it supposed be able to execute functions similar to the PlayOn app on a phone or tablet, which is really just a front-end for what you can do with your PlayOn server via a web link (
Server: Windows 7 SP1; 4gb RAM; 2TB SATA. Dell GX745. Inputs: Haup. 850 & 950Q on ATSC; Haup 1600 on ATSC & Comcast DTA with USBUIRT. Haup 1800 on ATSC. Sage 9.

I decided to just create an import directory in Sage to which I download Playon media. Sage adopts it as in import (sometimes I have to force a scan), browse to it on any extender, and watch it. It's not fully integrated, but it turns out that it's fairly painless.

Question for this group.

I've got Playon working with /through UPnP inside Gemstone. That all works just fine.

However, I still have the dreaded low resolution issue (720x404). I've made the entry that Fuzzy speaks about, but new shows are still downloaded with the lower resolution.

Is there another setting? Fix? Adjustment? that I might try?

EDIT: by the way, if I download directly from the PlayOn program, I do, indeed, get 720P.
