DS 212j, Roku and Roksbox

Postby luskinj » Wed Mar 21, 2012 1:27 am

I need help hooking up my DS212j to my Roku via Roksbox.

I've searched through this forum and the Roku forum and found some really helpful information that I thought might get me there but I still need some help. I followed the following posts as a guide:

http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f= ... 1&start=15

but no luck. Roksbox seems to see the server, but doesn't populate any of the videos. Can someone please help. I'm trying to avoid buying the WD TV Live because I just don't want to hear "another gadget" from my wife. I'm sure some of you can relate.

Thanks in advance for your help.

OK, I figured this out and am now able to access the Media folder in the web folder established by enabling the web server through control panel.

Follow the directions on this page using the rbindex file listed in 4b:

http://www.roksbox.com/home/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=131&Itemid=54

place the rbindex in the web folder (I placed in the Media folder for good measure).

Direct the Video folder to Video (or whatever you have as the Video file under the web folder)

When the RoksBox setup wizard asks for the XML address, just click Finish.

You should be good to go after that.
