@sanspoint Last time I tried this was a 2 or 3 years ago with a very old Mac mini. It couldn’t convert the video and push it real time, so I was stuck. Either upgrade the hardware, or reconvert all the media (mostly DVD rips). I chose to move on to the next project, lol. Maybe these Raspberry pi’s are powerful enough to convert on ther fly. I’ll have to look into that before a purchase. And I forget the exact codecs or whatever the previous issue was...

Good luck getting your hard drive mounted. Could you transfer the media to a new and compliant hard drive?
