Glad to join the Roku club. Just received a Roku XDS box for Christmas and have been in love ever since.
While I've gotten everything relatively set-up (Netflix, Hulu, Pandora)... I'm trying to fiddle with the USB port. Digging up some forum info, it seems the USB Media Channel won't be available until later this month. However, I have a huge collection of movies that are all in .AVI format - and my understanding is that even once available, USN Media Channel won't support that file type.
I'm trying to scope out the world of private channels, as it seems that they are my only solution to this. But so far, I've had no luck regarding gaining insight into playing/streaming/converting .AVI files to work on the Roku. I'd really like to get the movies to play on the big screen, so have turned to you guys for help.
Does anyone know any workarounds/methods for getting .AVI files to play on the Roku? Any first hand experience?
Any help or input would be greatly appreciated by my entire family.
