    New to aMPdroid and loving it so far, but three little issues for me to iron out...

    1) When trying to watch recorded shows, aMPdroid doesn't find any (there are a number of them on the server), instead just a blank screen showing "Loading Recordings....." ad infinitum.

    2) Streaming videos or live TV is sometimes a little choppy, and I read in several posts here to try "UNC paths" instead. Doing this on my MePo server/client setup helped enormously, once I'd found the hidden setting, but I can't find any such setting in aMPdroid - can someone point the way?

    3) try as I might I can't get aMPdroid to stream my MP3 music - it continually seems to try and load MP3s as if they were video files, then predictably fails. Anyone?

    If I'm supposed to have attached logs, forgive me, as I can't find an option for that on aMPdroid.

    1) Since your setup is Client/Server, have you manually setup Ampdroid clients with three different ports for Wifiremote/Tv/Media? Are the ports open on all your firewalls? Clean reboot after changes were made?

    2) I do not believe the path setting is in Ampdroid, The path is picked up from your server. I was successful using an external player ( MX Player Pro ) and the VLC codecs to eliminate the choppiness. If you decide an try MX player, turn on the video hardware decoder in settings. I tried three different android devices and all worked great. ( HTC Amaze, Nexus 7 and Lenovo K1 )

    3) sorry, no clue.

    Good luck
