All channels and graphics are from FilmOn... just not necessarily the domestic version... *innocent whistle*

If it weren't out of sync on the iPhone as well, I'd be more concerned that they wouldn't fix it, but I can't see how they could leave it the way it is now, unless they just don't care about the iPhone streams.
When it was in sync, it'd drop out every few seconds... at least they fixed that part.

While I appreciate the pointer, as I noted earlier in this thread, the iPad version of the streams do not have a Roku compatible audio stream, so they won't play. Trust me, if I could use the higher quality streams, I would.

I just gotta say, even with the apparent lag between picture and sound (about 2-3 seconds), this is quickly becoming one of my favourite channels. :) Thanks a bunch!

Hi there, just wanted to say that I am new to adding these private channels, but am loving the ION channel on FilmOn (except for the tiling up on the screen :/)

Just curious, but is there somewhere where I can locate some sort of TV program guide? I started creating my own.

Will Roku ever be able to display what channel/show we are watching?

Thanks for any input.

Try removing it and adding it again?

Has anyone had problems with this channel tonight? I can go into the channel and I have items to select, but whenever I choose one, it dumps me back to Home.

The filmon channel is in need of a gravestone. The filmon service recently changed from being a free service to being a paid service with prices starting at $9.99 per month, so I suspect the reason the filmon channel is not working (not that it ever worked well in the first place, but that wasn't TheEndless's fault, it was filmon's) is because the channel is trying to access content that requires a paid account with filmon. TheEndless could modify the channel to allow people who have paid accounts with filmon to register their Roku devices with filmon, but I wouldn't bother modifying the channel if I were him because: 1. The content filmon provides isn't that great and nobody in their right mind would pay $9.99 per month for the content they offer. 2. Filmon seemed to never be able to get the video and audio of their content streams to be in sync, nor did filmon seem to be willing to fix the problem, so again, nobody in their right mind would pay for such a miserably poor service. And finally, 3. Filmon is still in litigation regarding the legality of their service and it doesn't look like filmon is going to win their case.
