Roku alternatives?

My downstairs Roku M500 just died. I'd be happy to buy a new one, but unfortunately you guys aren't making them anymore. If your Netflix box also streamed audio I'd be tempted for that, but I think it's video only? So, anyone suggest reasonably priced alternatives? Can you get the Rokus fixed? Thank...

M1000 and M500 still supported?

I am a happy user of both the M1000 and M500 and was wondering if they are still being supported with the latest software releases? Whenever I go to check for updates there's never anything new (and hasn't been for a year or so). Incidentally, one of the FAQ says the M1000 doesn't support WPA, but I...

Well..

Why would you not use the music server software? You're in bed and the computer that is serving the music is downstairs. (For example.) Well, the example in the OP was that the user finds himself creating the same song queues over and over again from the Roku interface. My answer is that if you rep...

Yes, but not BBC, RFI, or any of the Swiss stations my wife wants to listen to!

It would be nice if Roku could give even a nominal status.

Thanks.

Re: Ah thank you...

does seem like AAC sounds better on the Roku than MP3 even at very high bitrates (my MP3s are ripped with MusicMatch using the highest sampling, bitrate, and VBR)... You didn't say what bitrate you are using in AAC. MP3 using a high-quality encoder (LAME, FhG in WMP 10, etc.) is very competitive, e...

Saving Song Queue

If possible another handy feature, though there are certainly alternative ways to do this. would be to give a way to write out the current "Song Queue" as a playlist. I find myself building the same "Song Queue"s over and over and have no way to save them. Even being able to go to the web interface ...

Fast Forward

Unless I've missed something (which is possible), the SoundBridge remote while supporting skipping back or forth an entire song, does not support fast forwarding or rewinding within a song. This would be handy at times, though I can see why it would be difficult with streaming media. Anyway, another...

Me too!

I'm really dying for WMA support. All of the radio I really want to listen to, like BBC and French stations are all Windows Streaming Media. I really think this should be a high priority, particularly since the advertising for the Roku might lead you to believe that it would support this and a lot o...

Ah, thank you, at last someone who doesn't want me to spend more money! :-) Now all I need to have is someone from Roku to indicate they've heard the request... Incidentally, and perhaps it's just me being mental, it does seem like AAC sounds better on the Roku than MP3 even at very high bitrates (m...

Well, I was kind'a hoping on not spending any money at all (whether it be hard disk space or otherwise). It seems like it would be relatively simple (albeit easy for me to say), for the Roku to allow equalizations...

This kind of "manipulation" should really be done at your pre-amp level. Pre-amp!? Ha, ha, ha! Clearly you've spent a lot more money on your stereo than I plan to. :) I'm just looking for good quality sound here (well, better than I have, but I'm too cheap to spend much on this), not reference qual...

Equalizer?

Are there any plans to perhaps add an "equalizer" or "sound enhancement" function to the SoundBridge? I find I get tons of highs and base, but the midrange is often sadly lacking. I don't think this is a Roku issue, so much as an MP3 issue (I'm using optical incidentally). It would be really handy t...

Any plans - GPL?

Any plans to release the source code for the SoundBridge as GPL? The reason I ask is because you could then leverage other programs on things like cracking streaming Windows Media support.

Sorry..

I stand corrected then and I apologize. I really do like the product, just I was really hoping for this particular support (streaming WMA or Real Audio. Until then I know of know French talk shows I can listen to. Incidentally, do you know a lot of M1000 are being sold in M500 packages. The one I bo...

Yes, please ASX (WMA) first. Most stations seem to support this. If you can add this you'll have a very happy Roku user. As it is, you really can't listen to many (if any real stations). I can't get anything outside the US, which half of what I wanted this for was French, Swiss, and English stations...
