How do I play a movie from the evox dashboard? When I go to the menu item to play title/move from the DVD drive, it goes blank for a moment then returns to the evox dashboard.

OK what you started is most likely the dvd region free player. It will only play dvds or the the like (i think).

If you want to play any movie then get yourself XBMC. Itll play any movie, music and pic or game.

hi steve69,

Sounds like your evox.ini isnt linking to DVD Region free properly..

So you press on the DVD MOVIE PLAYER to start it in your evox menu but it just loads back to the evox dashboard..

Have you been able to ftp into your xbox yet? If you can just make sure that the files are installed properly. DVD MOVIE PLAYER lives in the e:\apps or f:\apps or g:\apps directories.. Your evox.ini should be automatically looking for apps in those directories.

It uses a line in the evox.ini similar to this:
AutoAddItem "DVD MOVIE PLAYER, e:\apps\dvdregionfree\";

hope that gives you more ideas what to do mate,

cheers,

Hi,

im sure its on the autoinstaller disc guys..
but DJB will have to confirm this or another member..

It should automatically install the REGION FREE DVD PLAYER when you install the apps from the XBHQAI!

cheers,

I used the autoinstaller, but cannot find the region free dvd player, unless it is called something else on the disk.

OK, I found the region free dvd player on the autoinstaller disk. It was not installed to the xbox. I installed and tried it out. When I did I got a screen with a penquin, then a big dump of data. It ejected the disk and rebooted. What am I doing wrong?
