DVDLobby 4

Postby CinemarDave » Tue Aug 16, 2011 12:05 pm

If anyone has MLServer 4 installed and would like to experiment with DVDLobby 4 it is now available for download in the Installer. You will need to install the new Content Manager too as you will use the Content Manager to import your old DVDLobby database into the new database. There are some sample scenes in the MainLobby samples for using DVDLobby 4 or if you would like to use your existing scenes all you need to do is open the .mls files in your favorite text editor and globally change every MLDVDLOBBY| to DVDLobby|. All the other server variables are the same.

What's New?
You can now store custom fan art for each movie. Multiple fan art images are allowed. Every time you select the move a new random fan art image is generated from the images available.

A random Poster, Front Cover and Fan art is generated every 2 minutes to give your static screens a little life.

All Movie cataloging is now done in the Content Manager. Cataloging from MainLobby scenes is not supported in this release.

MLDMR users now have the option to "Refresh" the database from the master database from within Content Manager.

When I try Install the new scenes I get the following error. Any ideas?

Dave,

Looks good, I like the scenes that match the iPad style. Everything installed fine content manger and looks good. All my BD's worked fine(TMT3), but I cant get regular DVD's to launch using Theater Tek.( Yes, I Know its old but I like it.) They havent worked since I moved to MLS4. If I go back to 3 it works fine. I'm not sure if its a problem in the legacy plugin as it shows connected to auto killer but never shows Theater Tek open even if I open it manually. I have TCP enabled.

Try version 3.99.6 of the plugin. I just tested that version here and it worked for me.

I have installed DVDLobby 4 and I am using PowerDVD as the player. However, whenever I try to play a DVD, nothing happens and the DVDLobby log says "PlayMovie - Error at PlayMovie at line #7466 - The conversion of a varchar data type to a datetime data type resulted in an out-of-range value." I am using all of the current applications and all of the paths are correct. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.

You must not be in the US. Issue was trying to convert a date in your local format. Version 4.0.4246.36170 should resolve the issue.

Interesting. But did the last version solve your issue?

I hate it when .net won't tell me the line number. Is it possible to zip your media.mdb file and email it to me?

Dave,

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. The revised version of DVDLobby 4 did the trick regarding the error message, but I still can't play a DVD. Any other thoughts? It appears that the PowerDVD Agent is connected, but it shows no activity.
