Thanks for the reply, but something must be amiss somewhere with the way I have it configured as I tried that and still couldn't get it to work.
Anyhow, I've give up on MX Player
for playing back network/SMB shares and paid for 'Archos Video Player'
and also downloaded he 'Archos - All Codecs'
(from m4rk3t) and everything seems to play fine now over my local network.
In fact, I cannot believe I haven't came across 'Archos Video Player'
It actually very good at video playback as you would expect, but it can also scrape movie and TV data from various online databases in much the same way as XBMC on PC can (but obviously not as configurable).
I'm just gutted didn't discover this a couple of years ago as the time wasted faffing around with various programs, different options and plenty of tweaking far outweighs the £3.99 spent on the 'Archos Video Player'
In fact, my first PMP was an 'Archos 704 WiFi 80GB'
(around 2008), which used to sell @ around £400 and I still cannot work out how they never managed to dominate the current market in such devices with them having a massive headstart on everyone else.
Shame, as they made some sturdy kit too.
