"Can't read directory: ...."

Postby warki » Mon Mar 03, 2014 9:48 pm

Hello,

I have the following problem since (I think) December '13:
When streaming from my iMac (Mavericks) to my PS3, the stream interrupts at some points. Sometimes it continues after about 8-10 seconds, sometimes the stream ends. All of the files are fine, I can watch them perfectly fine directly on my iMac.

As an example, the log shows something like this:

I don't need PMS to read all those directories. All my movie files are stored on an external harddrive or on my desktop.

Does someone know what causes the interruption and if the WARNINGS shown above are the reason?

Thanks and regards,
Mark
