    I have 12 built and running fine under Mandriva. Audio and Video works on server box but now struggling to get both working on my HR20.

    Anyone have any tips?

      The Wiki page has all that you should need. You will need to configure transcoding as the HR20 does not support very much natively.  Here is a link to the Wiki page on transcoding.  Scroll down a little on the page and you will find the setups for the HR20.

      There are configuration settings and scripts for the HR20 in the wiki here: http://mediatomb.cc/dokuwiki/transcoding:transcoding

      Boilerjt is the expert at Mediatomb and the HR20. He's got an information thread at dbstalk here: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=128910
