No, it's not possible to install Android on an LG Voyager, any more than you can install an iPhone OS onto a Voyager. The reason you can't do this is because the hardware is not supported, and LG won't have written the device drivers and other low-level code for Android. I can't go into any more det...

Any chance you could build a release and post it on the Android Market? I'd be interested in this, but haven't got the time to set up the SDK.

Fab. Thanks Mike. If it's in the pipeline, then that's great; I can manage in the meantime. :D

That would make sense. But since the Roku picks up the library after it's restarted, it's obviously something that can be overcome. Is it possible for the Soundbridge firmware to be extended so that if the library connection fails, it clears the 'stale' connection and re-polls for all servers?

Stopping and restarting the twonky server doesn't seem to help either, but I'll try it tonight and confirm. Selecting 'change library or configuration' is where I get the 'Failed to connect to library >ok<" prompt. It's almost like the Soundbridge isn't attempting to re-establish the connection...

Losing server library after hibernate

I have my server PC set to hibernate every evening at 10:30pm, and the BIOS fires it up every day at 8am. This is partly to save some power, but primarily because the PC is bloody loud and sometimes keeps me awake at night with the fans buzzing. ;) Anyway, I run Twonky v3 as my server software, but ...

Out of interest, how do people hear the music if there's 10 Soundbridges all playing at once? :D

My Roku worked out of the box too. Plugged it in, turned it on, it downloaded the latest firmware and was running in under 10 minutes.

I think it depends on your point of view. I don't use iTunes, and have no intention of doing so, so there's no issue. If you want to use iTunes, then I believe from the Forums that FireFly server is available and works well. Pinnacle isn't getting ANY of my cash - even if only on principle. Fine. Cu...

You might want to be careful talking about running Roku software on your Pinnacle unit. It has been very clearly stated in this forum and indeed in this thread in Mike's initial reply that this is not allowed. Again, you're misunderstanding the situation. What Mike said above is that they can't con...

The hardware is the same but the software isn't. Erm, yes it is. Whatever gave you that idea? Okay, if you want to split hairs there's a few small differences in the Pinnacle software to the Roku version, but the underlying code is the same (as I'm sure RokuMike will confirm) and all development is...

I don't understand the big deal about wanting a Roku unit. The hardware is - to all intents and purposes - identical. Why not just buy a Pinnacle and be done with it? I have a Pinnacle M1001 and it's superb.

I have an M1001 and I had some re-buffering when listening to Heart 106.2 - it would play for 20 minutes, then re-buffer twice, and then say "Playback has stopped. Please play to restart playback". I upgraded to the beta firmware, and it's definitely better - usually plays for 4 hours with...

I agree that I can listen to BBC live radio via WMA streams and this works fine (but I find pretty pointless as I can just turn my radio on to do this). The problem is for overseas listeners. What is the problem? There's no reason why the WMA streams shouldn't work overseas any less than the Real s...

What's all the fuss about? All the BBC streams are, as mentioned previously, available as WMA, so are supported. Adding Real support would involve huge licencing costs for Roku - why bother when it already works with WMA? And for those who want 'Listen Again', why not just do what I do - have Replay...
