    Music Playback License Required?

    Forgot to update everyone on this but a simple email to support took care of the issue. They just asked for the serial number of the servers I would like to enable music playback on and that took care of it. As an example of how awesome K support is, they replied to my email even on Christmas Day!

    Folder naming

    Solved! To fix this your iTunes data folder must point to the same directory as the Kaleidescape data folder. Then All the albums will move from the Kaleidescape Data folder and into the next folder up, with the correct folder names. Thank you for your suggestions everyone!

    Kaleidescape 5U movie Server drive

    My opinion: Purchase a new or used 1u/3u server and either keep the 5u in operation to add storage to your system or transfer your content and retire your 5u server. If you wish to buy a new server their was/is? a trade in promo to get credit for your old one. ( @cinelife could give you more...

    Kaleidescape 5U movie Server drive

    Perhaps if you could elaborate on what you are trying to accomplish we can better help you. Are you looking to keep using your 5u server long term or is this only temporary to move the movies off to a newer server?

    Kaleidescape 5U movie Server drive

    Hi, Good luck finding “clean” 5u server drives as they have long been discontinued. The only servers that are viable long term are the 1 and 3u servers as you can still purchase new drives.
