GUIDE: How to connect TViXiE to TViX via FTP

Postby coolstream » Thu Nov 26, 2009 12:50 pm

Connecting TViXiE to TViX is simple if you have the relevant information to hand.

Start by opening TViXiE and select | File | Open FTP... | from the top menu bar

The TViXiE FTP connection box looks like this:

NOTES:
In the Host section, you add your TViX IP
In the Folder section, you might want to be more specific and use \disk1\Video
In the User section, you add your TViX ID
In the Password section, you enter PW which you will find the password in TViX | Settings | Network | menu.

To get the required information, go to your TViX and open | Settings| Network | menu

With this information, you should now be able to successfully connect your TViX to TViXiE :)

Using fanart templates over FTP
It is essential that you already have fanart.jpg in your movie folder before you use a fanart template. If fanart.jpg does not exist, TViXiE will appear to work but end up not creating a tvix.jpg or keeping the old one if one already existed.
Good Luck! ;)

Thank you very much for the exellent guide and the help.
I actually manageto connect one time. Problem then is that when I try to get movie information i get an error message that says it Tvixie only works with directories. All the movies are in folders same as before and I had no problems with an earlier version of Tvixie. Nothing has changed really and most of the folders have nice covers and information.

Next time I try to connect I get an error message (note Im using same connection that half worked earlier) I now get an error message which translated says "The underlying connection was closed. An unexpected error occured when recieving" I try to translate from Swedish here.

Third try results in the screenshot Im including.

Any ideas what my problems can depend on? Please

Thanks for posting this reply.

I have encountered the same error message when attempting to get movie information and have contacted joma about this.

I will update this thread when I get more information.

I experience the same problem as NAPPY667 and I uninstalled the previous version of Tvixie for the latest, which isn't working. I would like to be able to download the eralier version 1.2.0. Could you provide us with that? Or will the next release be around in a couple of days?

Otherwise, thanks for a great software.
