    New DVDs (NetFlix) ASP page error?

    I'm sure I'm doing something wrong here, so I'm hoping someone might be able to help me out. I'm getting the following error when I view the NewReleases ASP page:

    Script error: Object doesn't support this property or method: 'Server.CreateObject' Set fso = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") Set File = FSO.GetFile(mDirPath & FileFolder)

    I ran the NewReleases script and it updated the HTML/NewReleases/Images and the NewReleases.TXT file contained in the HTML/NewRelases directory.

    Thanks,

    Use with Blockbuster On Line

    "No Netflix account is needed, it just uses their publicly available RSS feed. New in this version, if you DO have a NetFlix account, you can now click the "Add" button to add a movie to your cue. (Thanks to Rick Tinker)."

    Any chance this could also be modified to include Blockbuster accounts? I can see the WAF going up if she could add a movie to her Blockbuster que....

    Thanks,
    Bill

    A quick question. I know nothing about grabbing an RSS feed and I looked through the script and don't see the URL that I would need to modify. Would it be possible to modify this script to create another page that would read your que and return that in the same format?

    Netflix nss feed.

    Hi John... Thanks for the effort. I'd be happy to take the revised script for a spin. We're a heavy Netflix user. You can e-mail it to me at dlgardne-at-comcast-dot-net

    John,

    My first and only use of this has been with 2.0 - it has never seen 1.7, so I would say it works fine!

    Main File Updated

    I took Tinks additions from above, and added them to the main zip file. Also changed the FSO call so that is is HOPEFULLY compatible with HS 2.0. If anyone wants to try it out on HS2.0 and let me know, I will upload it to the HS 2.0 library.

    Hyperlink Image and Add to Queue

    OK, downloaded some version of this and started playing with it.
    Somebody should take the latest changes and update the original post again - the version I got had the config folder for the downloaded XML file, when it was actually stored under html\NewReleases, and there were some other issues.

    Since I am not sure which is the latest, I am going to post my mod such that it *should* be easy for everybody to incorporate into whatever version they have.

    The modifications make the image of the movie a hyperlink that will take you to the NetFlix site to get the rest of the movie information, and it adds the "Add" button graphic under the movie image with a hyperlink to add it to your queue. The AddToQueue.gif file goes in the html\NewReleases directory.

    If you want these mods, find the spot in the ASP where the Movie ID is set, which should look like this:
    HTML Code:
    MovieID= mid(ALineOfText,FindLink+44,8) : ALineOfText = ""
    Remove the code after that line and before this line:
    HTML Code:
    findlink = 0
    And then replace it with this:
    HTML Code:
    Response.Write "</p></span><p align= ""left""><tr><td valign=""top"" class=""desc"">"
    Response.Write "<a target=""NetFlix"" href=""http://www.netflix.com/MovieDisplay?movieid=" & MovieID & " "">"
    Response.Write "<img src=""/NewReleases/images/" & MovieID & ".jpg "" ></a>" 
    Response.Write "<BR>"  <-- This is a "< BR >" tag that the MB software removed - remove spaces around BR when you paste it into the ASP.
    Response.Write "<a target=""NetFlix"" href=""http://www.netflix.com/AddToQueue?movieid=" & MovieID & " "">"
    Response.Write "<img src=""/NewReleases/AddToQueue.gif"" ></a>" 
    Hopefully it will be easy for you!

    Is it alright if I mess with the ASP?

    I started playing around with the ASP part of this package and created a layout that lists the titles on the left and then pops up a layer on the right with the image and description. I just found it easier to navigate that way. It got a little complicated and took some huge changes to the logic of the code, and I ran into a limitation of some part of the software: I can only read a file about a quarter of the size of the full version before I just start getting blank pages. I know when you look at the attached code it will be obvious that I'm pushing the limits, but I have no experience with ASP at all, so I'm looking for a helping hand in getting this working. Is there any way, short of using a database, to get it to read the entire file? If you have any questions about the code, please ask! I'll do my best to explain myself.

    For the time being, the zip file unzips itself to a directory called newreleaseswork, so as not to overwrite any of your currently working asp files, and all the files have been renamed. I included a truncated text file (RSS feed) that works on my machine and the ASP is directed towards that file right now.

    Thanks for any assistance you guys can offer. Even if it's just to tell me I'm silly for trying.

    Then I saw the newest version and downloaded it. Here is what I get when trying to pull up the asp.

    Script error: File not found Set File = FSO.GetFile(mDirPath & FileFolder) Set TheFile = fso.OpenTextFile (file, 1)

    I beilieve its not downloading anything. I ran it several times and even gave it a day before running it a few more times. Nothing is in the folder so it could be a problem with Netflix or possibly a firewall?

    By the way thanks alot for providing free scripts...

    Any suggestions,
    Is this working for people? I am getting the errors posted above too.

    Blade, I read you post a couple days ago. Sorry I do not have TouchPad installed here. I wish I could help you further. Hopefully someone that has Touchpad can help with this one.

    You are on the right track though, it should just be a matter of putting the header and footer on the page to make it work as a touchpad screen.

    Has anyone modified the image version to work with the TouchPad plugin.

    I tried adding the header and footer line to the asp page, but now I get no dvd list at all.

    Anyone help?
