you my friend are a genius!!!
works great, after i uninstalled all the different codec packs, and just installed the one you linked me too. i'll make sure to add it to my library for future reference.
looks like my new server is 100% functional again.
I also got a few HP tablets, i've been using them for independent control when walking around.
good for all my IR stuff, and music control. The browser is a little glitchy now and then, but overall it works great as an independent control.
i scrapped all my ipads, and brought in the HP tablets for my XL browser controls. guess i can always use my ipads as coasters, lol
