I own a Storex AivX-385HDRW with a 500GB internal HDD and a Wi-Fi connection pen (that came with it).
I've learned that this media player is a clone of the Ellion HMR 700A series media player (I believe it's this one).
Througout the time I spent tinkering with it I found some very useful information about it and some great how-to's, to which I will take no credit, as all of them were made by their creators, not me!
I was finding hard to get some other stuff working as I wanted and could find no more help in the web…that's when I found this amazing site!
So, first of all, let me share stuff I found:
1 - How to get access to the media player's partitions from the PC (either connected via LAN or Wi-Fi) and how to install add-ons by Thierry (I've tried this and let me say it works beautifully!)
2 - Other Add-ons (and how to allow writing to NTFS partition, even with the disk off) compiled by Freddy (didn't try all of these, but at least enable writing to NTFS works fine!)
Secondly, here's the 2 things which I'm now needing:
A - Install a torrent client on the media player that has a web interface (ideally) or at least a PC interface that would enable me to turn off my PC and leave the media player downloading my torrents.
Initially I thought the solution was with the Transcode Server application that brings a "BitTorrent Agent" application. However, I couldn't get that to work on any of my PC's (Windows 7 and XP).
If anyone knows how to get it to work, please say something!
I've also learned here on the 7th paragraph that it's possible to install software on the writeable partitions and start the software from the PC, however I didn't manage to find anything on this forum or the "friends" fora!
B - Get the player to read MKV's!
Supposedly the transcode server should get that done, but does anyone know how it can be done?
Because I couldn't get that to work!
And does anyone know of another way of doing this without this Transcode Server application?
I've searched a lot here and on the web, before posting and couldn't find anything helpful.
So, now, I've reached a wall.
And so I was hoping for your kind help on these problems of mine…any input will be welcome!
Just so you guys can help me better, right now I can access my media player's partitions (FAT32 (Hdd1) and NTFS (Hdd2)) and write to them as I please through Wi-Fi; I can also access all of the HDD partitions via Linux if needed (I've a distro of it installed on my PC and it mounts all the drives when connected via USB).
Sorry for posting my problems here, but I couldn't find help anywhere else!
