myihome is not working in OSX Lion

myihome is not working in OSX Lion
Hi,

I just upgrade my mac OS to OSX Lion and myihome disappear from my PCH A-210. Searching this forum and find some explanation that SMB sharing is not working very well with Lion so I tried to share file through NFS based app and it works. However, NFS file share like llink doesn't support iTune playlist which is a must for me.

Does anyone has a better solution? Either a workaround fix that let myihome working again, new coming version of myihome, or any other way that use iTune playlist once again is more than welcome.

Sad RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
I have just set up my A-210, updated firmware to latest release (411-000) and downloaded and installed myihome version 5.20 Cannot open the software on MacBook Pro OSX Ver 10.7.1 (Lion). Is this just that myihome is not compatible with the new Mac operating software. I have all my music on ITunes so a real problem as I have no access to it. How do we get this fixed?

RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
I can not help with myihome sorry, most likely a java library issue. If you are hard up for a way to share, llink should run fine on Lion, but I don't know how it interfaces with itunes music library, if at all.

RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
Are you guys going to make a new version of myihome for OS X Lion? Thanks.
If not we can throw our Popcorn Hour hardware to the trash :-(

RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
I purposely haven't upgraded to Lion because I though this might happen. Exact same thing happened with Leopard > Snow Leopard.

I'll add my name to the people requesting a new Lion compatible version.

RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
one strange thing about MAC users they never blame apple for breaking it and instead threaten to throw away there pch. As for a new version of myihome i would not hold your breath for it, its more a legacy software now.

eh, i don't know about that, apple really hasn't made many useful upgrades to OSX since 10.5- I love my mac but you won't hear me being a cheerleader for Lion-

that being said- the fact that myihome can't play back an itunes playlist in the correct order is absolutely mind blowing- that is something that MUST be fixed, having to listen to music in alphabetical order and not playlist order is the most annoying thing ever.

RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
me too, need working myihome for Lion sheesh, I went to Lion in order to use iCloud, but what a mistake that was.
I notice the myIhome that i download has some kind of error in the download, it downloads, but when I try to mount the DMG it complains that the DMG is damaged. I tried several times to re download it, same problem. so I can't really find out if 5.2 works with Lion actually

I for one don't go about blaming other's when a company is squarely at fault; in this case, Apple clearly broke compatibility with a lot of things in their release of Lion (of which I'm definitely not a fan of).

However, given that a computer is much more expensive and has more "usefulness" across a wide range of applications, over a Media Player such as a PCH or niche applications written for it, you can't blame said computer owners of wanting updates from those entities to work with their "new" systems. It may be cheaper and easier to switch to a new Media Player/method than changing to an entirely different computer and OS (and all the new software that must be purchased).

And the same can be said with any recent new versions of Windows (Vista, 7) and even Linux; people will ply vendors to get updates released to work with "broken" functionality due to major OS releases, so it's not just a "strange thing about MAC users..."

RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
it doesn't matter who's fault it is to me. We are just users trying to solve the problem. I will complain to apple and complain to the other side and hope they figure it out.

RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
Something in java broke again. when snow first came out it broke myihome and i was able to find a work around be using old java files from leopard. No idea if this would work for the lion issue or not. You could always run llink in its palce or switch to nfs.

I just dont see a myihome update coming out. None of the new flash based players use it and and if the 200 series goes all flash even more so it wont be coming.

RE: myihome is not working in OSX Lion
I have been trying to make NFS work, and so far, no luck. I can get the NMT to mount and browse through an OSX NFS share, but try to open any avi file and after spinning the cursor for about a minute it says it can't open it. Maybe there is something special I need to do with the NFS on osx side I don't know, but it doesn't work. I saw lots of people on the net complaining about NFS breaking from Snow leopard on, I don't know though, the info on the net is not always reliable.

I don't know what llink is, I will look into it.

I was under the impression that myihome also did "streaming" sort of like DLNA or something, which would theoretically be more efficient on the net theoretically. If not, what does it do exactly?
