I find that -FixTS makes .mpgs downloaded off my ReplayTV 4000 relatively unwatchable. That's probably because of the poor quality of those mpgs. I have two MPlay icons - one with FixTS, one without, pretty much for that reason. I have the same problem with files recorded by my Haupauge USB-WinTV a...

I guess my main concern at this point is how I will get digital audio from my devices for surround sound. I need to get digital audio to my receiver from my DVD player, SB, PB, and Tivo and then I need my receiver to link to my speakers. If you can run a fiber from your closet there are optical amp...

I should probably add that the Avcast system is not nearly as 'sexy' as some of the other video/IR distribution systems, but its very simple, it works and its cheap (its just an RF/analog system which is why it will repeat any remote, as it doesn't actually know what it is repeating). Just make sure...

From what you're telling me I should be able to put ALL my components in there and distribute the signals from each one to anywhere in the house that has a Coax connection right? Yes, as long as you want DVD/TV distribution and not HDTV you can stuff everything in the closet out of sight (and you c...

Should I look into mounting a fan in my AV rack if the airflow is bad? Lower temps are always good for the life expctancy of an electronic device. Currently none of my components get too hot b/c I use the Harmony 880 remote and only the devices in use are turned on. I plan on placing the PB between...

Thanks for the advice. That's a much cheaper solution that I had planned on. Out of curiousity what were you planning on? On the heat issue - I have a home run structured wiring set-up so I was planning on puttin the NAS in my wiring closet attached to my router. There's enough airflow in there so ...

NSLU2 solution is fine for DVDs but the samba throughput isn't quite fast enough for flawless HDTV streams


Since he said he just wanted it for DVDs I didn't see that as being an issue.

Re: NAS Options

I know that many users on this forum seem to have HUGE amounts of NAS for storing tons of DVDs but if I only want to store about 100 DVDs at most what is the most viable solution? I'm guessing that I would need somewhere in the neighborhood of 500gb of storage correct? Thanks Your easiest and proba...

BBC Radio support in the SoundBridge Radio is a high priority for us at Roku. :D For the remaining Real Audio streams, there are rumors that the BBC will switch them to WMA. If this happens, problem solved. Otherwise, we will develop an alternate solution, but not in the first software release. ant...

Re: Photobridge Finished?

I just posted a message to RokuAnthony asking when the Photobridge will be finished. This is his reply... the photobridge is "finished". If you mean, when will the 2.0 software update transition from beta to final, we don't have a firm date for that yet. The only way the Photobridge would not be "f...

It can get pretty warm, which is normal, which is also why we request a fair bit of space above and on the sides.


Don't suppose it would hurt to mount a few little (i.e. the inch high PC type) up against one side of the box to get a little more air flow would it?

My thought's on this: - Stupid question. - Not helpful or contributing in any way. - Counterproductive and frustrating for Roku's engineers. Also 100% agree and suggest people don't vote on the poll. If you don't like it sell it. For me it does exactly what I want, coupled with MPlay and that is pl...
