Re: Remote Controls

One benefit of the Philips Pronto over the Sony and other trainable remotes is that it can be configured with extra buttons that some PB applications recognize. http://rokulabs.com/support/downloads/HD1000CCF.php To be fair - the Harmony has all of the same codes available to it as well. Some time ...

For example, I would propose the following generic key mappings: User1 - "1" User2 - "2" User3 - "3" User4 - "4" User5 - "5" User6 - "6" User7 - "7" User8 - "8" RPT-1 - "9" RPT-2 - "0" RPT-3 - "Enter" RPT-4 - "Backspace" RPT-5 - "Shift" RPT-6 - "Tab" This is fine, but there is a caveat - the RPT co...

A couple of solutions depending on how your system is set up... - Some receivers have a mode where you can watch one video setting and listen to a different audio setting. You can use that to watch the "DVD video" (really the pass-thru from the Roku) and listen to the digital audio from the Roku on ...

I was going to get one with just 1 300 or 400GB drive and at a drive at a time as it filled up getting the best prices on drives as sales became available. Their XRaid will allow you to add an equal size drive to the array as you go which I believe is a very unique raid feature of theirs. Darin The...

Actually they still have some of that on their web site. If you go to the page for the "Interlink Lightspeed Reference Fiber Optic Digital Cable" it still says: greatly reduces jitter for enhanced clarity and definition Graded index optical fiber for smoother, more natural sound I don't know, I gues...

Re: Harmony codes

Flar, I have a Harmony 880 and would love to have the codes you received from Harmony. Thanks, JR Hi JR, Harmony has already integrated those USER and RPT codes into their web configuration database so they are available for assigning to buttons in any device or activity associated with the Roku.

I just use a very thick, well-made RCA yellow video cable. Sounds perfect to me. What matters most here is that you use a coaxial cable for these digital signals as these circuits are expecting a specific impedance. Video and digital applications both require 75 Ohm impedance, analog applications d...

A couple of things. Digital sound isn't completely "you hear it or you don't". The wire is an analog transmission medium so the 1's and 0's are being deduced by the receiving side based upon the voltage signals coming through the wire which are themselves analog in nature. So, while the interference...

It's likely that you have a connectivity problem. What does the PhotoBridge show for ip, gateway and dns in "System Information"? No connectivity problems here. It's using the same settings it used for previous updates: IP: 192.168.1.10 (static) gateway: 192.168.1.1 (the wireless/firewa...

Just tonight I tried the .17 to .21 upgrade and it never worked even after about 10 tries (just kept hitting enter and it kept claiming to complete the upgrade, but nothing really happened - the network lights on the switch didn't even blink). I finally did the formatup procedure again. Let's try t...

Not even the 3rd time was a charm. Guess I'have to do it the old fashioned way... FYI - the last two updates .17 and .21 don't seem to download on the first try. Push the update button. The progress bar outline shows, but the download doesn't take place, even though the message is given that the up...

So for instance, if you had a projector with a native rez. of 1280x720 and you set the output on the hd1000 to 720p you would have a 1:1 pixel map - no upward or downward scaling! just perfectly matched pixel out -> to pixel in. Have you adjusted your projector to eliminate all overscan? Was the ad...

Also the WET54G loses the singnal frequently even though the wireless router is just next door. I tried having the 7dbi antennas on both systems but it still loses signal!!! Tell me if t...
