Hi guys I just joined the forum today so I'm going to apologize in advance for my lack of knowledge.
I recently purchased a MBWE (White light 2 TB) and finished setting it up, and I gotta be honest not too happy so far. My biggest issues are
1) I'd love to have a GUI I could work with more as opposed to only the remote administration
2) The inability to play MKV files is driving me crazy
3) The streaming to DLNA devices isn't working properly, when I try to connect to it on my PS3 i'll see the files and when I try to play them it says corrupted data, although when I play them on my computer they play fine. I've tried multiple file types too (avi, ogm, mkv divx etc) but no success. To compound things the same issue arises when I try to connect to it with my TV (I have a 46 inch samsung series 7 lcd tv that's connected to the router as well, as a note all devices are hard wired save for my laptop).
I know I have a lot of issues to iron out but I feel the best starting place was to ask you guys where to start with fixing things so I can have this set up into my dream media server. I thought maybe I should start by installing the optware, but honestly I know just about 0 when it comes to using linux or the command line.
Does anyone have any tips or useful links? I know this is an extremely broad post but any starting point would be immensely appreciated.
