Hi all - new to Channels but excited about the direction and enthusiasm from the community. I have the Channels DVR installed on my QNAP NAS and Channels app installed on my Tivo Stream 4K (Android) device. I have my HDHR and TV Anywhere source setup and working from Xfinity. Recording, etc. all works.
I've turned my attention to importing my DVD library, which are each saved as an MPEG-2 Program Stream with single AC-3 audio track. To be clear, a single file, not the standard DVD disc structure. From the DVR Server settings, I have /share/movies added as a source. My directory structure is guided from the Plex recommendations:
Each movie directory has the movie file, and a Folder.jpg which has the poster art.
/share/movies/TITLE (year)/TITLE (year).mpg
I wasn't sure if the video format had anything to do with it, so I also tried multiplexing the mpeg2 video and ac3 audio into an MKV file and place in the directory structure as TITLE (year).mkv. I don't see these being picked up and displayed anywhere also. I then tried an AVC (h.264) encoded video as an MP4 in the same structure and still nothing.
So I'd value input from this community. I suspect I'm missing something obvious. I've searched many different topics in the community forums but nothing answers these questions I have below that I was able to find.
Does the Channels app from the Android TV store work out of the box, or do I need to side load a Beta version of the app for the movies to be displayed on the client?
Does the media groveler on the DVR Server care about the video encoding, or is based on directory structure/metadata?
Is there additional metadata I need to add for the groveler to pick up the movies?
I am running the latest DVR Server: ChannelsDVR_1.0.3.qpkg.
Thanks in advance!
