Sorry, but I am not quite there yet!

I saw digital media server 1 in the Samsung Smart menu where it displays USB devices connected to the TV directly, but when I enter it displays folders for Video, Music, and Photos but not the folders I actually have on the hard drive. If I select the Video folder the only thing in there is the option to go back to the upper folder. If I select Photos it displays just all of the album art from my albums that are in individual folders on the hard drive in /Media/Audio/Music and screencap samples of some of the movies, where there must be pictures in /Media/Video/Movies/ and /Media/Video/TV Shows/ where most movies and all TV shows are in individual folders. If I change the filter for videos and select the Video folder it only displays 5 video files out of the hundreds on the drive, and when I try to play them it gives an error that the format is not supported, these are avi, x-matroska, and mp4 that normally work as far as I know. I can still browse the drive over samba from Ubuntu fine, including all media files.

Also, when I FTP to the TV and go into the /mnt dir it is completely empty.

Please advise.

A recording device IS required in case of "empty /mnt syndrome" :)

Ahh balls! :(

Okay, so looking back at the routing method I used, and yes I am MST firmware by the way, I see the updated samyext4.zip that was no there when I routed about a week ago.

Before I start rooting from the beginning of that guide again, do I need to do a factory reset or something? Perhaps I can just copy and paste the new files from samyext4.zip to the SamyGO USB flash drive and replace any existing files when prompted during the copy?

The guide mentions nothing about any recording device, which I think I read here before is a webcam to help the Skype hack work. Is the recording device I need a webcam, when and how do I use it to stop empty /mnt syndrome occurring, and can it be any brand of webcam?

Yes, just unplug your rooting USB (while TV OFF!) and replace samyext4.img by the one from archive.

Really? I guess you have to expand spoiler(s) ;)
