Using Home Media Player

Right. I've dumped most of my vinyl and cd collection onto my NAS. I can access it thru the Hopper menu no problem. What I can't do is get the fool thing to play all songs in a folder. It plays one and quits. Plus next song is set to automatic. Plus, I have no idea how to set up playlists. Assistance appreciated.

Can you send a PM with your account number or phone number and your 4 digit PIN?

I have the same issue with pictures.  I can see my folders and my pictures, but I cant seem to 'play' a slideshow.  I also don't understand where I can set up playlists?

 

Thank you,

bemoses, let's make sure the settings are set to automatically start a slideshow. To do this, please press the Home/Menu button two times, scroll and select "Home Media", then scroll to "Settings". You will see a option for "Auto Start Slideshow" under the "Slideshow Settings". Ensure this is set to "on". 

Additionally, make sure the "Auto Play Next Song" is set to "on" under the "Audio Settings" section to have the next song played in your selected music folder. Let us know if this helps!

Yes, those settigns are correct.  I see my folders/pictures as stated.  Is there a weay to select multiple pictures or a folder to play?  Maybe thats my issue?  Thats why I was also wondering about a playlist.  Any help is appreciated!

There won't be a way to edit a Playlist through the Hopper. Any playlists will already need to be set up when the media is connected to the Hopper. 

I'll submit the issue you're having with the Slide show starting to our Engineers cause it should automatically start the slideshow since that setting is on. It looks like you're in a Private Message with us so I'll get some more information about what kind of Home Media device you're connected to there.

Same issue here...all settings are correct (and set to "yes") but slideshow will not play and skip forward and skip back do not work either.

When playing a song it will not auto advance to the next song but the skip forward and skip back actually do work. What's really strange is that the white vertical scroll bar, that moves along the yellow duration bar, keeps moving to the right, along with the counter itself, past the end of the song and yellow bar until it and the counter move clear off of the screen.

I hate to hear you are experiencing this, KachinaShadow! Lets make sure the software version your Hopper currently has is correct and up to date. With your Dish remote on the Hopper 3, press the House button 3 times, this will bring up the Diagnostic screen. Would you please provide the software version it shows?

SamF,

Thanks for the reply...sorry it took so long to get back to you.

I just checked and the problem is still there.

The software version is U528.

Thanks,
