Once I've download a show from replaytv to my mac I can use vlc to play it but
when I try to run vlc from dvarchive I get:

ERROR: EXEC:: Error running command /Applications/VLC.app - /Applications/VLC.app: cannot execute

What am I missing?

Best Regards,

George Rachor

Is that (/Applications/VLC.app - /Applications/VLC.app) the proper
path and filename for running VLC?

This IS covered in the README file (they are there for a reason), so I
almost didn't respond... Set your video players to the following to get
automated playback functioning properly.

/Applications/VLC.app/Contents/MacOS/VLC

Greetings Steve,

And thanks... It is working perfectly now...

I'll review the readme's again and try to locate where I missed this.

Sorry to have bothered you.

George Rachor

PS: Works Great on the Mac Cube.
