Clyde

hi all

I have a solo 2 running vix build 147 I have installed xbmc and a few addons Phoenix etc I was wondering if it is possible to download a film from xbmc on to the hdd of the solo2? As my internet speed is terrible constantly buffering when trying to watch a film.

I've seen a few clips on YouTube but there using a pc and it is possible to do just wondered if anyone has came across this option within xbmc anywhere as am unable to find it

I am not aware that you can download within XBMC but someone else may be able to offer a better answer.

What I know you can do is install the Transmission plugin (in the ViX feeds Menu-Plugins-Green-Extensions). Then install the Transmission GUI on your PC/Laptop & set it up to point at your Solo2. This will let you source the movies via torrents on your PC/Laptop and download directly to the Solo2.

Just tried on navi-x & it does work but download is very slow, fist do this if you havent already.
[How To] Context Menu and Sumenu in Xbmc

Now by going to the title you want to download and pressing the mute button you will see the download option, the location defaults to /media/hdd/.xbmc/userdata/addon_data/script.navi-x/My Downloads but you are given the option to change this before confirming. It appears to download in real time (ie to download will take as long as it would to watch the movie) but running this now & can see this file is being created fine on the HDD.

That's great I will give it a try am not bothered how log it takes to download as am not able to watch any thing on xbmc or ts media broadband is to slow 0.6 or 1 meg so much for super fast broad band lol.

I'll try to set the download location to hdd or my wd cloud

Cheers

No sound is usually a codec issue when playing media files -

Navigate to Setup -> Software Management ->Advanced Options ->Packet Management

Find and install the files that start 'gst- ' and install them and try again.

Or something similar to that, as I don't have Vix installed to be able to check its the same.

In genesis settings select download and choose a drive location. When you select a film/ TV show to watch you get the source select screen ie moovreel 1080upload etc bring up the context menu and you can select download. Works on my m8 but haven't tried on theft solo yet .got to remap my remote . Hope this helps.

You can download from Phoenix . This works fine. Just downloaded a league of gentlemen episode in around 4 minutes.
