I stopped running the test some time ago when  we got the main server working again. Though I have not tested that myself for some time.

This tests the main server:-
Hi jer1956

Thanks for this.  Is that test link still up and running?  I've set my port-forwarding so 9191 goes to my web server with the appropriate files from your first post, but nothing happens except that is displays the mede8er movie trailer graphic.

Running nginx, PHP 7.3, and Python 3.

Technical Issues / Scraping, Yamj, Yadis issues
« Last post by tcx32fr on September 17, 2020, 03:39:22 PM »
3 years ago I was using YAMJ which was working like a charm. I got to load on my X3D a bench of new movies recently and tried to use again YAMJ, but for whatever reason it did not work.

So instead of scraping automatically I went through the manual method via the X3D interface: scraping works, infos about movies are correctly found, you can save them BUT when displayed on the sceeen the thumbtail, fanart, about.jpg are completely fuzzy and pixelized (see attachement) and I don't undertsand why.
So I tricked the system unsing Yadis, and after having 1- manually scraped, 2- scraped via Yadis, the display are fine (fanart, thumbnail ..) expect when I launch the movie to play.

Indeed, doing so, I have a different behavior than when I was using YAMJ:
- with YAMJ, when I select a movie, and press "return", the movie will start to be played after pressing OK
- with manual scrap + Yadis, when I select a movie and press "return", I go to the pixelized fanart first, then pressing return again will launch the play.

But when i Press "i" = infos the fanart is OK, not pixelized, and I can launch the movie play from this screen.

If anybody has any idea

General Discussion / Small Screen Issue
« Last post by gregavi on August 31, 2020, 10:36:07 PM »
Hi, I have the 600X3D and have recently had a problem with the unit displaying on about a quarter of my TV screen. The entire screen is filled throughout the menu navigation right up until the video starts to play, and then it shrinks down consuming only the upper left quarter of the screen. If I re-boot, the entire process begins again, full screen during navigation and then shrinks down when video starts. I have tried to factory reset but cannot get it to factory reset. I tried unplugging from back, reinserting power connector, holding the ON/OFF button for 10 sec and all I get is a large E83 Mede8er logo onscreen. No factory reset.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Plex is very easy to use and it takes all the hassle out of setting-up a network which, since Windows 10, has become a little complicated. Plex is also probably the most popular application in use today however, in order to get the best out of it you need to pay for a Plex Pass. Where it shines is in it being a straight out-of-the-box solution that appeals to both newbies and more experienced users.

Kodi is a little more complex to set-up. It took me a couple of days and I fine-tuned it over the period of a month, but it has so many add-ons that make it the most complete multimedia center available and it is free. Another interesting thing about Kodi is that they have a community forum with separate support for each type of TV box or computer. This means you can get help for issues you have while at the same time getting tips from the issues that other users of your device have come across.

For what it's worth, Kodi even has a Plex add-on which makes it run and look like Plex although it should be noted that you still have to pay for the Plex Pass subscription to unlock its full range of features.

Plex and Kodi are not the only solutions available. Search YouTube for Jellyfin and Emby to see what they have to offer. Both are free.

If you can see the content I would say the HDMI cable is not the issue.
Outdated codecs, perhaps?

I too realised a solution was not going to be forthcoming this time and looked around for alternatives. I settled on a Synology NAS on which I run Plex. Plex can also do everything the Mede8er did and more and is very slick. It also gives you access to their own library and TV stations as well as all your own movies and TV shows with art work, summaries, profile of actors etc etc. If you donít want to get a NAS you can just take the HDD out of your Mede8er and plug it into your PC and share it. Plex is available on smart TVís, Firestick and Roku etc. Being an app rather than a device, it gets updated very regularly. Well worth trying out.

For years jer1956 has been saying that the Mede8er products are old hat and no longer supported. Yes, I fully agree they were really good and worked well 4 or 5 years ago and then, as technology evolved, they began suffering from incompatibilities.

It took me ages to finally give up on my 600X3D and move on to a new Android TV box because I didn't want to play games so a box such as the Nvidia Shield Pro was both expensive and overkill. After doing much research, I narrowed my choice down to the Vero 4K, Beelink GT Pro, Odroid N2, and Ugoos AM6 Plus. Having watched several youTube reviews on all of them I went for the AM6 Plus and loaded it with the free CoreELEC (dual-boot) option which is a linux based version of Kodi. CoreELEC is available for most Android boxes.

Not only is the AM6 Plus utterly amazing in its performance and features but running Kodi means it scrapes everything and downloads subtitles, just like the good-old days of Mede8er boxes!

Like I said earlier, it has a dual-boot option so, if I boot into Android, I have access to just about every app that is found on Google Play Store (although you use Aptoide TV instead of Google Play Store to view and install them). Furthermore, and this is extremely important, Ugoos provide excellent support and are consistently improving their firmware. This box is like my old Mede8er on steroids. It plays 3D movies and 4K to perfection.

You can see a review on the AM6 Plus here:

I am not saying you guys should buy one of these but you really should consider upgrading to a modern Android TV box as it will solve all your problems instantly and you will be really pleased you did.

I'm happy to answer any questions on this subject.

Same thing happened to me with 2 different 600X3D boxes. I could find no solution to it other than to plug a single drive in the port and change it when required.
