Re: A Grooveshark player

It's now working fine for me, since my wife bought me a Roku 2 for Christmas :)

I noticed there isn't a way to search though :(

Re: Spotify lands on Roku

I'd say you'd have to have quite a home stereo to tell the difference between 160kbps, 256kbps, and 320kbps. I can tell a difference between the lowest and highest with headphones, but not at home.

Spotify is running a 30 day free premium trial right now, so there's no harm in checking it out.

Re: Spotify lands on Roku

MOG still has better straming quality, which is why I keep both services. I was good sounding music... Quality is most important to me. According to this article , Spotify has "99%" of its catalog encoded as 320kbps, the same as MOG. I've listened to both services using my Audio Technica ...

Re: Spotify lands on Roku

So a Roku 2 was under the tree :) After five minutes with Spotify, my longtime MOG account has been cancelled. My biggest gripe about MOG on Roku was the inability to go up a level in navigation without interrupting a song. How basic of a function is that? Want to search for something else to listen...

Chiming in as another having problems. At least Netflix is aware of it.

Re: Spotify lands on Roku

Like most forums users, I know how to write better than I know how to read. Thanks.

I'm getting the feeling I need to purchase a Roku 2 in the near future.

Is there a list of channels exclusive to the current box?

Re: Spotify lands on Roku

Does one need a Roku 2 for this? As a MOG user, I've been long fed up with the lack of improvements to their terrible channel. How is the UI? Can you play a song while browsing other titles? This has long been a problem on the MOG channel, and one they've promised to fix for years :roll: I'd love to...

Re: A Grooveshark player

I tried adding this twice, but it's failed to show in my channels. I waited over 48 hours the first attempt for it to show up. This is on a Roku XDS running software version 3.1. The channel should now be compatible with version 2.6 or newer. The channel nows appears in my lineup, but I'm unable to...

Re: MOG - Repeating albums in Editor's Picks, New Releases

You can report problems by clicking the ? icon in the top right of the MOG web interface. That takes you to their support site. If you go directly to the support site, your login may not work (as mine didn't). I heard back from MOG support yesterday, saying the problem has been fixed. I was getting ...

MOG - Repeating albums in Editor's Picks, New Releases

I've tried to get help with this from MOG but their only response (three days ago) was "try logging out and logging back in again" (which also happens to be really complicated and clumsy within the MOG Roku interface). And the solution also didn't work. Starting about a week ago, the Edito...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Tes

I just got Roksbox up and running after a long hiatus. It's great to have access to my media from the Roku. A few questions: It seems I cannot connect to the Mongoose web server when my computer (Windows 7) is in sleep mode. Is this something within the web server, or a router setting? Is there a wa...

Re: Remoku

WetFactory, can you tell if the IP is different if you're able to reset the Roku again and re-connect? Also, what is your Roku firmware version? If it keeps happening, try not using remoku and just try hitting the /query/apps page at different times(not sure how long it was up for you, but try that...

Re: Remoku

I haven't been able to get this to work. I've tried on both Chrome and Firefox. I have my network IP address filled in, along with the IP of my Roku, which I manually added. When I press a button within the application, it says 'Sending request to [my roku IP]' but nothing happens. Are both the com...
