Is there a maximum number of movie files that MP1 can handle?

    Hi,
    I'm running mediaportal1 in windows7 on a HTPC. I have over 500 movies on 2 seagate hard drives linked via USB to the HTPC. MP1 sees these files, has scraped all the movie info and graphics for them and displays them correctly.
    However, when I click on them to play them or right click and select play nothing happens.... absolutely nothing. I'm free to carry on browsing through mp menus and click other files but, again, nothing happens.
    I have also tried adding movies to a playlist then trying to play them from there but a message pops up that the file can't be played.
    When I had fewer movies (200 or so) I didn't have a problem is there a limit on the number of movie files in mediaportal?
    I have attached logs of the above problems.
    Hope someone can advise.
    Steve

    I don't think it's that (it's loading EVR when it tries to play something).

    But, from MediaPortal.log:

    Note there is no video or audio info for the file, but I don't know why that might be....

    Maybe an update of mediainfo.dll will help?

    I've checked the renderer and EVR is checked. How could I update mediainfo.dll?
    It seems odd that this same set up worked fine when it only looked at one of the file folders, ie about half the movies?

    Try the attached .dll (needs to be put in C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal)

    Hi,
    does anyone have any further suggestions as to what might cause this problem?
    Is there an updated version of mediaportal software that I could try?

    Not much in the logs, except the VMR9 error:
    Code (Text):
    1. 2012-09-26 20:35:32.506324 [ERROR][MPMain(1)]: VideoPlayer9: Failed to render file -> vmr9

    Could you install the LAV Filters (you can find them in the MediaPortal Extension Installer) and try to play some files with that setup?

    When you say you have the two drives linked via usb, do you mean they're plugged into each other in series? If so, have you tried plugging each into its own usb port? Also, using the LAV filters is a good way to go. I have 5 drives in a server with over 1300 mkv file movies and they all play without any problems using MP 1.3alpha and the default LAV filters.
