Here is the scoop:
I have a G4 with Tiger loaded on it and I want to hook it up to my TV and stereo as a media server. I already have the cables. FYI - HD is not something that I am after. I want to stream this all from a USB drive that I have shared using an APE and everything will be hard wired.
Without front row…..what is the best way to do this?
Join the cable in back port.If this is not suitable then you can buy a external port for this.
Have you tried boxee?
Try external pord or you can use boxee.
Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today
I’m in a similar boat, err Mac that is.
Power Macintosh Mirrored Drive Doors G4 1.25Ghz running 10.5.8.
I tried a couple of the more popular “media servers” but discovered the MDD just wasn’t really up to spec for it…...
It does work serving up video to a 1st Gen iPad using an app called Playback (A DLNA Server).
Now if only I could get my (old) HDX 1000 (Network Media Tank) to consistently to see Playback I’d be happy. My iPad sees Playback just fine….
Smile they said, it could be worse. So we did, and it was!
