Network setup help.


Distinguished Member
Please, please, please, I need some help with setting up & understanding my network.

I have a iMac, Vaio laptop, Oppo 93 Networking blu-ray player & Onkyo 5008 receiver.

I'm very new to the Mac so this could be my problem. I have MKV files that will play from a hard drive through my Oppo fine.

As soon as I try & stream them from my mac using twonky these files will not play & Oppo says invalid file.

I can stream AVI's no problem just Can't do MKV's.

I'm at my wits end and need some help. Other people can stream MKV's to the Oppo but for some reason I can't.

If anyone has the time could you please advise me on what I'm doing wrong.

Please, I'm going crazy, if I need to spend money and buy a NAS drive that's fine but my mac is on all the time so wanted to stream from that really.

Thanks in advance

are you trying to stream via wireless ?? i suspect the MKV files to be much larger than AVI.
I would still suggest a NAS for the long haul :smashin:

Please, these files play fine via a USB drive which is attached to the Oppo.

They just won't stream, someone must be able to help.
