Launching DVDLobby

Postby Mike » Sun Mar 18, 2012 10:27 am

Okay, I am prepared to feel stupid here but I have looked through this forum, the Wiki, etc and am coming up empty.

I started my MainLobby installation fresh on a new system, or at least I thought I had. I have the DVDLobby app set up under MLServer, have configured the PowerDVD plugin, Content Manager seems to be working fine, etc.

What I can't figure out is... how do I actually launch DVD Lobby? When I launch MainLobby it goes into a scene that I must have accidentally set as the default. I've browsed all the .MLS files in the Cinemar folders and for the life of me I can't figure out how to actually start up DVDLobby.

Thanks.

Make sure your content folder is set to the V4 sample scenes 4x3 folder. If you want to open DVDLobby directly set your start page to the Movies\Movies_Main.mls file.

Didn't even think to look in 4x3 since I'm using a 1080p display. Thank you!

I have a 1920x1080 HDTV display. Can't figure out where the appropriate Movies_Main file and corresponding content folder would be? By messing around with settings I can get the 4x3 scene to look "okay", but obviously stretched.

The sample scenes contains a V4_16x9 content folder. Set this folder as your content folder and then use the Movies_Thumbs_Browse.mls file as the start scene.

For a really impressing 16x9 experience install the Fan Art Library 0027. When you do that use Cinemar\Content\0027\RemoteControl as the content folder. Use the same Movies_Thumbs_Browse.mls file as the starting scene.
