Just received my box today but it doesn't seem to work with my DWL-G122 HIGH SPEED 2.4GHZ (802.11G) WIRELESS USB ADAPTER (http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=334). Anyone else have luck with this adapter?
The chipset inside a compatible adapter needs to be one of those ..

Code: Select all

RTL8187
RTL8191SU 
I have linked all known to works compatible in previous page.

Sale ends 24th.
Keep watching for web restocking or arrange local pickup.
Which is the best GUI for the PBO?

If YAMJ, which is best way to install
would you recommend a or b?

a. http://www.pettingers.org/code/yamj-basics.html

b. http://code.google.com/p/moviejukebox/w ... tepInstall

Should I install and play around with it while waiting for delivery of the PBO?


TIA

If you want to go to the YAMJ route, then download the desktop installer from here.
And use the guide here.

I personally create my backgrounds using ThumbGen

And just do movie sheet browsing without any Jukboxes at all.

Does not appear to be intuitive. Any tutorials out there? How do I get Metadata info?

Thumbgen ?! that the beauty of it, you don't don't do anything, just point to where the file is and chose the template you want to create, it will query the online movie databases for the all the info/pics and will access your file for the media info. It will then generate metadata info/ folder / and background files (which are also fully customizable if you want thumbgen to create YAMJ compatible files).

WOW, great piece of software, thanks for the suggestion! What I failed to do was to "generate" the thumbnails.

Yep, I got the last one they had, and it was open box. They called to check if they could ship that one and offered 5% off. It's on its way. Hopefully all is well.

Thanks for all the info you've posted. It's your earlier post about the PBO that got me looking for one!

They restocked the Online Stock today!

I was on the fence about this PBO the last few days and the only thing that hold me back from pulling the trigger is that it was OOS for Online stock.
Now that it's back in stock I still don't know if I should buy it.........I really like the sexy Metal casing but I think my PS3 will do just fine for what I need...> :(
