Re: Please explain

We have been over this ground before but I agree. You have to be motivated by something because the technology is not quite there yet. Either you don't use the cable enough, it is a financial thing, or it is a death to cable thing. I am, personally, not waiting for anything. Streaming did cause me ...

Re: Netflix Movie Options on ROKU fewer than on Netflix.com?

You do not get a full catalog of movies when you browse on the Roku. You just get a handful of selections. However, if you search for a movie on the Roku you should get every movie that you will find on Netflix.com.

Re: 50 titles in previously watched is too much

I totally agree about being able to turn off the Recently Watched feature. And to all those that believe that there is "nothing too objectionable" on IW: you dudes apparently just don't know where to look.

Re: Disney Pulling Starz From Netflix? More Content Coming...

I would miss Starz quite a bit. I even like some of Starz's original programming. Party Down is simply brilliant. (And the Spartacus series is a guilty pleasure).

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I like the new navigation/play options - they take a little getting used to as there is more interaction (keyclicks) to navigate but they work well. At the risk of sounding like an ungrateful jerk, I rather wish there was a way to deactivate the shuffle/browse/play popup. It makes navigating the di...

Re: Streamming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

I love the interface, but have had no luck getting the server and client to talk to one another. (Constant "invalid IP/XML file" error.) I was able to play around with the live demo and liked it a lot. I will check out future versions, but I must reluctantly agree with those that have comm...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I posted a while back about a client-side set-up feature (this would enable deployment as a private channel and would no longer require developer-mode). Well, today I accidentally discovered that client-side set-up is already possible. Here is what I did. (1) When I installed from Springboard, I int...

Reporting success with the latest version (w/ partitions) access and playing songs with special characters. (Bridgett Bardot is now cooing through my Roku.)

Nice work.

Okay, thinking big here. IMO, one of the next goals should be to set this up as a "private channel." The advantages would be that the installation would not require developer mode (lots more testers), and client updates would automatically be pushed to the Roku. As I understand it, the onl...

Re: So.......

So if I pay for it directly.....then my box of Lucky Charms will go down to $2.75........Right? I think not. That's not really the point. Right now, cable companies don't give you the OPTION of paying for your Lucky Charms. If you want Lucky Charms, you also have to buy a loaf of bread, Depends und...

wizzy1291: On the Artist Name/Album/Track request: What happens right now is that when the player cycles to the next song it highlights the currently playing song and displays the song name and the artist underneath. Is that what you see? For WMA's I don't extract the metadata yet (haven't figured ...

wizzy1291: Good catch! I'd like to fix this. If you go to the album that has special characters using your browser and click on the song does it play? I'm trying to figure out if the Roku just can't handle it or if it's something at the server. I just tried it out and the answer is "that the s...

Quirk report: The client cannot handle non-standard english characters. So if you are trying to open a folder with (for example) an album with Spanish language songs with accents and special characters you will not be able to open the folder. Also, if you are trying to access an artist folder with a...

To my pleasant surprise: the Aljazeera News on Mhz is is actually a pretty good news show. (Not at all what I was expecting).

Also check out the My Music Channel which a forum user has created. It has instantly become one of my favorite channels:

Here's another point that might be obvious to many if not most (but wasn't instantly obvious to me), but if you are running the media server on your PC, you should probably assign that PC a static IP address.
