View Full Version : Tera Nas HD Pro in combination with Snazio Net Dvd Cinema HD
Is it possible to put DVD files on a Tera NAS (.TS & .VOB files in an VIDEO_TS dir) and stream this to the Snazio Net DVD Cinema HD incl the possibility to select your audio stream and subtitles.
This is the main reason for me to buy a Tera Nas icw net dvd cinema.
Also mp3-files ofcourse and pictures, but the mean thing is video streaming with dvd as source files.
VOB and TS are supported for streaming but no menu's. Parsing of menus,
audio selection and subtitle selection is not possible over network from
anyone yet. (Technically very hard to do)
What about DVIX movies, are the subtitles working if you stream them from the NAS (SRT-files).
I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but I rip my DVD's to my PC (including all audio streams) and then when I stream them back I can select the audio language i.e directors cut by pressing the audio button on the remote.
Not tried subtitles, no need for them as yet.
loobola, that is exactly what I wanna know, if it works from your pc, I think it must be possible from the NAS aswell, or ?
If you can try the same thing for subtitles, I would be very happy :-)
For me it is not a must to change audio tracks and subtitles through the menu's, but it must be possible to change subtitles and audio streams with the remote control (audio and subs button). It would be great if that works.
It works from the NAS as well. That is what I did the test on.
I used Hitch. Which only has 2 audio streams - directors cut and normal. Best I try another for you to be absolutely sure. I'll check subtitles too.
Note: I will start a thread on the NAS a bit later. But be careful which HDD's you buy. Consult this forum 1st!
Thanx again, good that you mention the HDD issue, i didn't know that you have to be carefull.
I was thinking about 4x the Maxtor DiamondMax 10, 300GB (7200rpm, SATA, 16MB, NCQ)
Is this OK ?
Read through the thread Setup problems in Snazio Expansions. In there there is some info and links to websites that will help with compatability. Also I know Hi-Jack has had some HDD's up and running to a good level of performance. You might want to go with them.
At the moment I would say there are still some compatability issues with Western Digital that need resolving so steer clear of them until this is done.
I know Hi Jack is testing some at the mo, so is able to compare these HDD's to the previous HDD's he had installed. I guess watch this forum for info on how that goes. I think (like the Net DVD) Snazio are working on new FW that will hopefully resolve many of these issues.
I'll get back to you with audio and subtitle info.
I'm thinking that if you need to select the audio via a menu then the Snazio won't do this as it won't stream the menu's. But if it is via the audio selection button then it will probably work. E.g Top gun you select your audio via a menu, doubt Snazio will stream this or not - can't find my Top Gun DVD to test....
Heat works fine from PC. German language and numerous subtitles.
But note the audio isn't accessed via a menu. So you need to check those such DVD's. When I find top gun I'll check for you.
Perfect, that is all i wanted to know. I only have a few dvd's where you only can choose the subs via the menu.
So now it is time to order the NAS :-)
I just started a new thread where you can discuss which HDD's to go for and which not to! Good luck with the NAS - I'd advice using MPC Shop because of the after sales service you get is great - and after all I'm sure there will be Q's!
MPC shop is a bit expensive when you compare it with:
I'm not sure if there are more shops where you can buy it.
Up to you! But i have had issues with both my NAS and Snazio Net DVD player and MPC Shop have been great at trying to come up with solutions. They are sending me the spare parts out so that I can repair the player myself saving shipping and loss of time having the player.
With new technology like this there will always be a certain amount of setup issues that you will require support for. Its a toss up between going for slighly cheaper elsewhere and having the after sales support.
The choice is yours!
