Iphone and PCH
I have the PCH app for my phone and sometimes use it although the search feature doesn't seem too great.

But lets say I've downloaded something directly to my HDD in the PCH. I can obviously view this from my PC but is there a way to view the HDD in the PCH from my Iphone only? A way to view my network from the phone?

I have the logmein app and netawake, so i can actually wake up my pc and remote control it from the phone, effectively allowing me to see the network that way, but is there no way just view it directly from the phone?

I might, for example, just want to move a downloaded file from the download folder to the video folder.

Is it possible?

I was evaluating to buy this app, except for the feature you're asking, how do you find the app?
Usable? Buggy?

I would like just to have the possibility to surf my internat HD movies and play it....

The app I have is the PCH NZB app, simply for uploading NZB files to download. That's all. Think you may be looking at a different app, if so, which one?

This app could be much better as the search feature is not always great, doesn't find files that I know are there. I do like to use it just to pause and resume downloading and just check on downloading files.

You would need to be connected to your network over Wifi.
Then you need software that gives it SAMBA access.
I don't know if there is such software on the Appstore, but search for SAMBA.
For jailbreaked iphones google found lots, so use google and search for "iPhone SAMBA" and read.

EZshare from the App store seems to do the trick!

BuzzPlayer works for me, UI is straightforward enough and you can stream or download the file over WiFi to watch later. Good file format support too.

try it.

Looks good, will try. Thanks.

Is it mainly a multimedia player though? Wanted it more to be able to actually copy and paste files over the network.
