I tried searching a few keywords in some of my video file names but never could get any results, so I don't think it's working yet.

Right. It only searches in stuff that is search enabled, at the moment that's limited to:

  • Spotify (not available on ps3)
  • The TV plugins (mostly swedish stuff)
  • Spotlight (OS X specific)
  • locatedb (Linux specific)

I plan on adding search support for UPnP/DLNA so then it could search in media servers that support that (Twonky is one for sure)

In a longer perspective I will add support to Showtime itself for indexing media and then it should be able to search basically any file system structure it knows of.

"twonky is one for sure"

that means you got the problem with twonky fixed already? :D

RE: Search Box for internal HDD - Added by Andreas Smas about 9 years ago

Twonky works just fine for me but there are other (or was that you) that reports that it's not working.
It's a bit hard to diagnose problems I can't reproduce myself.

i have read that issue of that other person reporting and i have the exactly same. it's odd why it works for you and for us not.

are you running twonky 6.30 on a NAS?

can we help to make a diagnose anyhow?

RE: Search Box for internal HDD - Added by Andreas Smas about 9 years ago

No I run it just on my Linux desktop

RE: Search Box for internal HDD - Added by Tom Mottom about 9 years ago

I quess that's the difference. Can we give any info?

RE: Search Box for internal HDD - Added by Andreas Smas about 9 years ago

I'll add more debug info to the log during video start so it will be easier to track down the problem

RE: Search Box for internal HDD - Added by Tom Mottom about 9 years ago

first is for videos.

does that help in any way?
