Hi all Mede8er X2 owners

Thanks to the ongoing development on the X3D Series we are now able to port some of our enhancements across to the X2 Series.

NOTE: All Hard drives must have a unique name for correct functionality with V2.1.1 firmware. Connect the Hard Drive to your Windows PC and in My Computer right click the Drive icon and you can give the Hard Drive a name. Remember that each drive must have a unique name example Hard Drive1, Hard Drive2 etc etc

JukeBox Plus Instructions
1. Make sure your Internal Drive and USB drives have a Drive LABEL (Drive Name)
2. Make a folder on any source and name it what you like. (Note: The source needs to be write enabled)
3. We have added a facility in the GUI to add a folder so you do not require a PC to do this -   Navigate to a Drive or Network Share in the Mede8er Media Library and press the 'Edit' button on the remote and you will see a new function named 'New Folder'  - Use this this make your JukeBox Plus folder
4. Navigate to the new folder you just made ie JukeBox Plus or whatever you called it and press the 'Menu' button and select 'Add to Favourites'
5. Go to Favourites and you will see the new JukeBox Plus folder you have just made - Press the Menu Button and select option 'Aggregate Jukebox'
6. The folder will now be assigned as the Aggregated JukeBox and a new thumbnail will be displayed.      
7. Now you are ready to add Mede8er structure shares to the JukeBox Plus folder
8. A standard jukebox with Favourite link can be added to JukeBox Plus - Press the 'Menu' button and select option ' Add to Jukebox'  
Remember to turn on 'JukeBox View' in Setup Menu.
9. You can also add to JukeBox Plus directly from from the Media Library-- In the Media Library - Navigate to the folder you want to add and focus on it then press the 'Menu' button and select option 'Add to JukeBox' and the X2 will add this folder and Auto Rescan the JukeBox Plus folder. Repeat this process to add all the different folders you require to add to the Jukebox Plus.
11. Launch the JukeBox Plus icon and all your movies across the different drives and Network shares will be displayed in one consolidated Movie JukeBox.
12. If content changes on a drive or share then you need to re 'add to JukeBox+' and the new content will be added.  
13. On large collections the first scan can take some time ie Samba to HDD +- 230 movies/min and NFS to HDD +-260 movies/min. Rescanning when adding content will be a quick as only the new content needs to be added.
14. If you update Firmware then the JukeBox+ folder will have to be removed from Favourites and re-added.

Emergency Procedure
Download the latest Mede8er Firmware from UnZIP or UnRAR or join with HJ Split and will find one file named install.img. Copy this file to the root directory of a Flash Drive. Plug the flash drive into the Mede8er. Unplug the power to the X2. Plug the power jack back in and hold the ON/OFF button on the Mede8er (not the remote) down for 15sec and then release. After the firmware has been checked (+-5-10sec) it will start to update. You will see the update progress on your TV.  Do not remove power during the Firmware Update procedure .

Possible Bug as found on X3d :-

1) If you  create a Jukebox+ on a NAS and then remove the Jukebox+ Favourite, the option to  set the Aggregate Jukebox+ doesn't return to  the Menu.  The only solution  found is to  re-install the firmware.

Hosting Jukebox+ on attached storage  is working as expected. We would advise those using a NAS should host Jukebox+ on a local SD card the GUI is much  faster that way.  Those using a Nas won't appreciate that  as your standard  jukeboxes have always been on the NAS so  far.
