I agree with Mebby. I too have owned the Pronto and currently have the Harmony 880. The Harmony is VERY family and wife freindly. It's also exceptionally easy to configure. I come from an IT background so did not have any issues with programming the pronto... however, these days I just don't have ti...

Ok,

Thanks for all the info.

Just as an FYI to those that may try to do the same thing:

This one file is then the file that you need to do the VLC stuff on.

Thanks for the info. Just as an FYI it's /b not -b.

Now that I generated the one VOB file [edit] I did not have sound, but rebooting the Roku fixed that...

Now when I play them with MPlay, great! I get perfect sound and video.. Except, it appears that it gets to a point where...
