Exclude dirs from scanning
.no_all.nmj file in the given directory.
This can be done in a number of ways. Here is on example, using telnet:
# touch /share/Apps/.no_all.nmj
In effect, the .no_all.nmj file now prevents the NMJ to scan in the Apps-folder.

- It is possible to Auto Launch NMJ when entering the location of your NMJ database, simply use the Auto-Start option in the NMJ Menu section. As soon as you enter a location with a NMJ database then NMJ will launch.
- It is possible thanks to forum member Accident to launch any of the NMJ sections automatically. All NMT's will load a index.htm file automatically if one is present in the location.
Simply download this file (Nmjlaunch.zip) and unrar.
- For each drive or network share you want an NMJ jukebox to start on its own, unzip the file for what section of NMJ to load and rename it to index.htm (if needed).
- The file must be in the root folder, this will be the same share/folder where the nmj_database folder is located.
The rar file contains the following 4 files:-
- index.htm - launches the moviewall
- apps.htm - apps
- photo.htm - photos
- music.htm - music
Make sure you rename apps.htm, photo.htm and music.htm to index.htm for it to work.
Remember that on boot the NMT will default to the last successfully accessed share/location. So if this is the same location as NMJ then it will autoload on boot as well as on entry to the share/location.
Auto-Start on insertion of HDD/USB
- It is now possible, via the Community Software Installer, to now AutoRun NMJ on insertion of a HDD or USB HDD. Simply follow tthe instructions in this forum thread.
Questions & Answers
Q: Is it true that NMJ is just for HDTV's?
A: Yes and No. For NMJ to run it needs a HD output resolution to be set. If one is not set then you may even get a message that a NMJ database cannot be created at the location where you press the Red button. If you have a HDReady (1366x768) or FullHD (1920x1080) TV and connect via Component or HDMI then, as long as the location where you want to scan and create your media is writeable, NMJ will work fine. If you are using a Composite (Yellow) connection then you will not be able to create a NMJ database. The best option if you do not have a HDMI capable TV is to use s-video and select a 720p output (on A210 [and others?] works using plain old composite cable too as long as you set a higher resolution). That should allow for creation and use of a NMJ Jukebox.
Q: Why can I not create a NMJ database?
A: This is usually caused by one of two factors. If you are using a TV that is not HD capable then unless you can use the s-video trick mentioned above you cannot use NMJ as it requires a HD resolution. If you are using a HD capable TV then the location where you want your NMJ Jukebox is not writeable. Please give the NMT write permission as it needs to create the database at the location of the files that it is scanning.
