Uncheck it and try again. I'm not sure if that's it or not but mine is not checked.

Hell you could just drop your icon directly in the Boxset folder and see what that will do.
Instead of using the config tool to set the icon.

Tried that too. I even went into the startup folder and edited the .vf the old school way.... NOTHING!! I think I going to give up at this point. It shouldn't be this difficult.

**UPDATE**

HAHA!! Me give up?? I figured it out. MB doesn't like .mkv movie shortcuts. My DVD shortcuts work fine. It just sucks that I cant catalog all my box sets. Oh well.

Thanks DS for your help!!

Damn that sucks! Well I'm glad you got it worked out any way. Have you tried to do one with only MKV and one with DVD?

I have several boxsets with a combination of DVD and .MKV files that show up and work just fine in MediaBrowser.

The one thing I struggled with is if I have a trailer in any of my boxsets it seems to throw things off.

I can only get DVD box sets to work. As soon as I add an .mkv to the mix (by itself, or with a DVD) it breaks my box sets.

I also had issues with trailers.... And to think we're going to have to pay for this??? I should work right out of the box.

Nice DS, those look sick!!

To bad tyborg and FeLiX didn't give me props on my 3D covers submission. Not a shot out or nothing. I even gave them that new HDTV one that they created backwards!! Oh well, good thing I'm good with Photoshop <evil snicker>.

I'm having a real problem getting this program to install correctly.

Managed to get it running on one computer, but there's no advanced tab in the config box.

On the other computer when I click on it from WMC it comes up invalid application.

Any suggestions ?

So what is it doing when you add a MKV file to your boxsets?

I know right! But to be fare tyborg was very consumed with the GUI when doing that release, I'm sure if he had been all there your name would have made the credits list!

Have you tried a single (not box set) folder with an mkv to see what happens? I just tested this in a single folder and it worked. I took my 10000 bc folder, and renamed it to superman returns (I know I do not have that movie), I wanted to use a movie I know I do not have so I can easily catch it in the MB list. I then changed the extension of the 10000 bc clip from avi to mkv, and deleted all the other stuff in the folder (I do not have any mkv movies), in your case, you can just copy one of your single mkv files to the folder, (just the movie clip). Now see if it shows up in MB. This is just to test to see if the issue an MB, or a box set issue. If it shows up from a single folder, then we just need to figure how to "fool" MB to make it show up from a boxed set.
Note: if you prefer, you can make a text file in the new folder, and just change the extension to a mkv from txt.

cant connect to Youtube from Everio Mediabrowser
I use Everio Mediabrowser to download my JVC videos. I can upload directly to You Tube on it but since I started using W7 (64 bit home) I get an error it cannot connect to Internet. It works fine on my other laptop that runs XP so I'm thinking it is a W7 issue not my software. I had this...
