    Hi all.
    I've used FormatFactory to convert some movie files to both mp4/H.264/AAC and mkv/H.264/AAC.
    The movies in question are the digital copies that are included with some Blu Ray movies, and they're in .wmv (and play fine on my PC using Windows Media Player 11).
    My Revue "sees" my PC and plays music ok, but doesn't "see" the movie files.
    I've tried putting the converted movie files in the folder that stores my music, but again, they don't show up.
    I'm doing something wrong, but can't figure out what.
    Can someone explain exactly where the files should be located?
    Thanks!

    Google TV's DLNA clients don't understand file and directory sharing from Windows. So, it doesn't mater too much where you put them. It can only use the DLNA servers' advertised content. Try going into your server's options to rescan the configured directories for new content.

    Hi eferz. I had tried that, but with no luck.
    Would TVersity work better?

    Maybe? When I tried TVersity, I remember having to change the file permission to allow everyone access or something funky like that. That was a long time ago, I've since then relegated to a dedicated NAS with Twonky for power and cost saving reasons.
