myiHome is too basic server

Firs I tested today myiHome UPnP server ver 3.5.1, downloaded it from Syabase homepage as last version. I was greatly disappointed with this server. Didn't recognize and show some of my HD content (Bourne Ultimatum MKV-s for one example), didn't play MOST of my HD content
Only later I found out that there is alsi much newe version on Networked Media Tank homepage -- ver 5.1.3 (sic!).

Sure, I'm spoiled by functionality and speed of TwonkyMedia, but still -- myiHome is far too basic UPnP server tested so far. I really lihe Syabas hardware, using myself Popcorn Hour A-110 Networked Media Tank. But for some reason, their server software is not up to the level. 

Cons music:
  • Not user friendly, if You got 600 artists like me,
    took ages to find Robbie Williams album Intensive Care (my fav usability test)
    no artist or album index
  • Doesn't show title, elapsed time, track info etc..
  • No album art
Cons general:
  • Takes 50 MB-s of HDD, Twonky only <3>
Pro's
  • Ver 5.1.3 plays most of 1080 HD stuff I had on my server, including:
    IMAX Blue Planet MPEG2 .TS
    1000 Places to See Gambodia .MKV
    Bourne Ultimatum .MKV
    Hancoc .MKV
    Victoria Secrets 2007 .TS
Making long story short -- I removed myiHome from my server after 1 hour of testing. Not recommended. Alternative: TwonkyMedia server.

Hey dude, cool with so much content on HQ video and audio, I've been considering exploiting the digital audio available in all macs, what do you think, does it matter?

Also, it's fascinating how many machines still sell with only VGA when most macs, and my MBP has dual DVI output :-)

Also, I meant to say I'm absolutely in love with my Firefly media server :-)

Hi CJ :)
Yes and no about VGA. All new HW uses HDMI, witch is DVI superset with sosund and other...

I have been lately busy with my 5,3 TFLOPS supercomputer.

....''took ages to find Robbie Williams album Intensive Care''.

maybe the software is better than you think after all! if only it could be hard-coded to delete shite like robbie, it would be even better.
