View Full Version : Adding Sources

December 7th, 2008, 12:58 PM

I'm running a Windows XP SP2 machine, and am unable to type in the "source name" for adding new sources. I have multiple hard drives with media files on them.
Therefore, I am not able to test playback.

if you select settings>media sources>network sources ..browse to see if boxee recognizes any of your network shares ..you can also add the IP manually (make sure you select the virtual keyboard in order to type in the IP/Host)

I have the same issue on windows xp home sp3

i am unable to browse or add manual sources at all. Browse does not 'browse' to let me select anything, and the virtual keyboard does not come up for me to type anything

see http://forum.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=2662&page=2 for more details

This problem is directly related to the mouse.
I couldn't add sources until I started using the keyboard for navigation.

Once I did this I could add the sources I wanted to.

So for now just use directional keys and enter to select things.

I also had some weird problems trying to use a mouse to select things, had to use the keyboard.
