Here you go. I have been going over all the settings you discussed earlier with not resolve.

Thanks,

Marty

Ok, now we are getting some where.

That command will launch an associated program to the file path if you have MLFileOpen installed in MLServer and the file will launch ONLY on the MLServer PC. My guess is you don't have a movie player associated to a .IFO file type (or whatever your movie name is in the DVDLobby Movie edit panel). But anyway, forget that, because that's not what you want to do anyway.

Here is a command that will launch a movie in TheaterTek:

First, here is where you learn about these commands:
http://www.cinemaronlineforums.com/wiki ... ek3_Plugin

This is the first command you should try. It will only launch TheaterTek (but won't play a movie).
AV.{AliasName}|PowerOn
Replace AliasName with the Alias name you create in the TheaterTek plugin.

If you cannot get that working, post your DVDLobby logs and Theatertek plugin logs and MLServer logs.

Once you get that working, then try this

(Literal example) AV.HTPC1|PlayFile~\\RemoteComputer\C\Movies\Mymovie.IFO

AV.HTPC1|PlayFile~D:\Jaws\Video_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO
In this example, you are launching a particular movie as you have hard coded a movie path.

Here is how you would launch a specific movie when clicking on it from within DVDLobby's user interface:
AV.{AliasName}|PlayFile~<<File Path>>
or literal example:
AV.HTPC1|Playfile~<<file>>
This uses <<file>> that gets filled in by DVDLobby plugin by the particular movie's File Path. So, the movie Jaws would be defined in the Movie edit panel with D:\Jaws\Video_TS\VIDEO_TS.IFO in that movie's movie file field.

note in these examples HTPC1 is the TheaterTek plugin Alias name.

Let us know!

Great! TT works as the player. I can see where TheaterTek has many advantages over the other players and will be researching some of the different ways to utilize TT.

Thanks again for all the assistance!
