    KIO - an exciting new Roxio Labs product!

    Hi All Just wanted to let everyone know about Labs' new product - KIO. Kio info page - click here KIO is a shell we created for Windows XP that lets you run Windows Media Center plug-ins. So now you can run DV Capture, Digital Media Archive and MyTV ToGo on your regular XP system! Note that we haven't done a lot of testing with non-Roxio plug-ins yet. But as far as we know, Kio should support them. Let us know what you think - it's pretty cool we think... -james.

    Roxio MediaTicker 2 Released!

    Roxio MediaTicker 2 is now available for FREE download here. We'd love to know what you think about it. Let us know by posting replies to this forum topic. What's MediaTicker? MediaTicker 2 is a fun, scrolling ticker that delivers your local digital photos and riote RSS feeds directly onto your desktop. Unlike other newsreaders, MediaTicker gives you a visual perspective on your RSS feeds by displaying content in both text and thumbnail format. Top New Features  NEW! Add the latest news, sports, headlines, cartoons, photos and more from sites like Flickr, Yahoo and MSNBC to your ticker using RSS.  NEW! Click on RSS news itis in your ticker to jump right to the full article on the web.  NEW! Delete an image on your hard disk permanently by pressing the "delete" button in the full-size photo display. Great for cleaning up those thumb-over-the-flash shots you copied from your camera.  NEW! Jump directly to the folder on your hard disk or to the web page for any image by clicking the "target" button in the full-size photo display.  NEW! Save images from RSS feeds to your hard drive by pressing the "Save" button in the full-size photo display.  Watch photo miories fade in and out or subtly scroll across the screen.  Click any thumbnail image to zoom in to the full-size picture or website.  Send photos via iail, set thi as your desktop background, print in multiple sizes.  The unique docking “sidebar mode” keeps the photos on your desktop without interfering with other application windows. FIXES:  Pictures are now sized proportionally for even spacing in scrolling mode. Those MediaTicker 2 Features in Detail... Flexible, Fun User Interface MediaTicker can present photos, news and other syndicated content to your desktop in a variety of different formats. The “ticker” mode will scroll images and text along your screen while the “fade-in” mode provides a more subtle way to view your content. Use the spacebar to start and stop the scrolling effect and use the arrow keys on your keyboard to advance the ticker backwards and forwards. You can even choose the location of the ticker on your screen and whether or not it behaves like the Windows taskbar. Your Ultimate Photo Viewer To view your digital photo collection in your ticker, you simply point it to the folder containing your photos. MediaTicker supports all popular image formats and you can even specify an unlimited number of folders from which MediaTicker can display pictures. As your pictures scroll by in an endless loop, you’ll discover and re-discover images you’d forgotten ever taking. View, iail, Print and Rotate Photos in a Snap Having your pictures scrolling by in an endless loop is a great way to review photos you’ve taken. Click on any photo to display the large view of the image, then use the controls at the top of image window to iail the image, print it out, rotate it and much more. Integrated Roxio PhotoSuite Support While MediaTicker provides some basic image tools, actual image editing is done within the Roxio PhotoSuite application. You can choose to send any image over to PhotoSuite for editing and repairing photos, creating DVD slideshows, collages, calendars and even turning photos into moving images! MediaTicker and PhotoSuite are your perfect picture partners. Add RSS Feeds to your Ticker Now you can add RSS feeds from almost any source, turning MediaTicker into the coolest newsreader around. An RSS feed is a simple systi that allows users to subscribe to their favorite websites. MediaTicker displays the images found in many RSS feeds - mousing over the image shows the source and headline for the story and clicking on the image will take you to the feed’s website so you can read the article in full. MediaTicker also supports text-based RSS feeds by displaying hyperlinked headlines along with a snapshot of the originating website. Save Images from RSS Feeds Many websites feature RSS feeds with pictures. With MediaTicker, you can save those images to your hard drive with a single click of the mouse.

    rtsp streaming support?

    Can you tell us which URLs you're wanting to access? I can test it for you. -james.

    Buzz

    There'll be a new build up in about a week from now. I can't say for sure that this will address your issue, but it's worth waiting and trying that - there have been many, many changes since the last version. Let me know how it goes... -james.

    Buzz

    OK, I'm checking into whether this is a known issue. Stay tuned...

    Buzz

    Can you give us more information? - System Info (OS, RAM, CPU etc.) - File type - Will the file play back in other players (like Windows Media Player etc.)? - Do you have any other Roxio products installed? Let us know and we'll try to help. Thanks
  7. OK, we've tested the app with Vista and there are several issues that need to be addressed. Unfortunately I don't have an estimate as to when these will be fixed - we're a small team with a lot of other projects on the go at the moment. Anyway, I know this is important to those of you that have bought the DV Capture software, so I'll try to get more concrete answers from the team shortly.
  8. Hi Guy I'll check into it...
  9. Here's a handy set of FAQs that might help you to get started using this amazing piece of software (well, we think it's amazing!!): Q. What kind of devices can be synchronized/backed up? A. Any device that can be accessed via a normal Windows drive letter or UNC path name (e.g. "\\mypc") that you can use in the normal Windows file explorer. Examples are other computers, USB drives, mp3 players etc. Q. How do I connect two computers together to synchronize? A. The computers need to be connected via a network. You will need a network card in both computers. Most computers these days come with a network card already installed. If you are just connecting two computers then you can just use a CAT 5 Crossover cable to connect them directly together. Q. How do I allow the files on my computer to be accessed over the network so they can be synchronized? A. The destination computer (the one not running AJC Synchronizer) needs to have the directory holding the files shared on the network. For advice on how to share the directory on Windows XP, see: http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharin...filesharing.htm Q. I have installed the trial version on Windows 2000/XP as an administrator user and it works fine and tells me I have 30 days trial left. If I logon as another non admin user it tells me the trial period has expired. A. This is a problem with the trial version only. Please test the software as a user with administrator rights. When you purchase a license the software will work correctly for every user where the license has been applied. Q. How do I find the files that had transfer errors on the report? A. Files that had errors will be left in the Files to transfer list. You can review the list again to fix the problems and try the transfer again. Q. When synchronizing files I get an "access denied" error? A. This is because you do not have the correct write permissions on your destination. There are 3 places where you may need to setup the permissions (on Win 2000 or XP Pro): Permissions on a directory network share. In Windows explorer, right click on a directory and choose Sharing. Click on the Permissions button and add the user who is doing the sync with Full Control permissions. Permissions on the destination directories. In Windows explorer, right click on a directory and choose Security. You need to add a user who is doing the sync with Full control permissions. To test the permissions are set correctly it is best to try copying a file to the other machine using the normal Windows explorer. If this works then a synchronize should also work because it just uses the normal Windows file copy functions. Permissions on individual files may cause just these files to fail if they are not set correctly. In Windows explorer, right click on the problem file and choose Security. You need to give write permission to the user who is doing the sync. Q. When the clocks have changed by an hour it wants to transfer all my unmodified files again. Why is this and how can I stop it? A. The software already has facilities to cope with this. It is caused because you are synchronizing between two types of OS e.g. Win 95/98 and Win 2000/XP or possibly a NAS drive. These different operating systems store date/time stamps differently and they will go out of sync when summer time changes start or end. To make the software cope with this do the following: Go to the Prepare Synchronize List window. Then either: a. Click on the Use Easy Wizard button and during the wizard select the "Connecting between computers running Windows 95/98 and Windows NT/2000/XP" and then also select the "Your country uses daylight saving" option. OR b. Go to the Tuning tab and select the "Allow an hour difference in modification stamps" and "Allow modification stamps to be 2 seconds different". Q. When I delete files from computer A and then sync they are copied back again from computer B. I want them deleted on computer B also. A. You need to set it up to synchronize file deletions. On the Prepare Synchronize List window click on the Use Easy Wizard button, follow the on screen prompts and choose a two way synchronize which will setup all of the logic for you. If you want to do this manually go to the Prepare Synchronize List window Options tab and select the "Synchronize file deletions" option. You need to do at least one full sync to build up a history before deletions will begin to be synchronized. Q. How can I run multiple projects at one time? A. You can run multiple projects together by creating a batch (.bat) file that runs each project in turn using the command line options. For details of the command line options please see the help file. Q. How can I sync more than one pair of directories at the same time? A. If all of the directories that you want to sync are under the same directory tree (e.g. they are all on one drive or network share) then you can sync them in the same project. Just select the top level (e.g. C:\) directories as the left and right sides. Then use the Explorer tab and clear the check boxes against directories that you do not want to sync. If the directories are not under the same directory tree then you will need to create multiple projects. It is still possible to run multiple projects at the same time by creating a batch (.bat) file that runs each project in turn using the command line options. For details of the command line options please see the help file. Q. How can I restore files that have been archived during synchronization. A. There are several ways to do this. From the Explorer, Sync list or History tabs you can click on the View archive button. This will open the archive viewer for the selected file. If you have not installed the archive viewer you will be prompted to download this free program. With the archive viewer installed you have another way to view archives. In the normal Windows explorer you can right click on a file and select "undo from AJC Archive". Within the archive viewer you have the options to compare, open and restore older versions of a file.

    full screen media ticker?

    Hi Ron Thanks for the great feedback. We've had a full-screen option on our radar for a little while now - it's something that the folks in the "lab" really want to see also. We don't have a firm commitment for the next version yet, but we're working on what features that might include at the moment. Buzz includes a way to very quickly make a slideshow (just drag images to Buzz and you're done), but yes: we've certainly talked about making MediaTicker and Buzz much more connected than they are today. You may see that in a future version, though we've no firm plans as of today. Thanks again for the positive feedback and great suggestions... We'll be sure to let you know when full-screen mode gets added. -james.

    Uninstall MediaTicker

    Try looking for "Roxio MediaTicker" in Add/Remove Programs. That should uninstall just MediaTicker... Good luck -james.

    Media Ticker Folder Selection

    hi sciencedj thanks - glad you like the app! you can do what you're asking today in MediaTicker 2. You just browse to the folder where you want MediaTicker to display images. For example, if you have a folder inside "My Pictures" called "Family Faves", you just go to the Options window, click on the "Sources" tab and browse to the "Family Faves" folder. Then click "Add Folder" to add it to the list of directories that Mediaticker looks in to display pictures. If you haven't already upgraded to version 2, I highly recommend it - it has tons of additional features to version 1. best -james. hi sciencedj thanks - glad you like the app! you can do what you're asking today in MediaTicker 2.

    Thanks Michele. This part of the forum is dedicated to Roxio Labs specifically.
