Yahoo Music Unlimited going to Rhapsody

So Yahoo announced that their Music Unlimited (the subscription service) is going to be discontinued, and existing users will migrate to Rhapsody. I've mixed feelings about this, mainly because (eventually) the cost will be about twice that of Yahoo. At the same time, isn't it the case that with Rha...

This is very interesting. I have two M500s, and for a long time have been wondering what to do about the display. My eyes can't zoom in like they used to! While I thought about jumping ship to get a Squeezebox, they are still overpriced in my mind. An M1001 is out for me, because of the upsampling. ...

Cover art on local server?

Hi. This is a great piece of software, in fact I bought a new battery for my old (dead) iPaq just to use it. Works great! I realize that cover art can be cached on the device (PocketPC) or retrieved from Amazon, but not retrived from the song itself. I already have cover art for all of my albums, a ...

Do I remember correctly in that WMC2.0 has the ability to publish WMA streams? In other words, play Yahoo Launchcast stations? Any ideas on if/how?

I'm glad to see it's a possibility as well. I also have an auto-switching receiver, which auto-switches no more.

Hi, I'm a moron. I think in my router's DHCP table I had two addresses assigned to one IP. When I go home tonight I'll verify. UGH!

Ok, you're on to something here. On closer inspection, my "Device2" is ALSO my WRT54g's address. Note that a WRT54g has I believe 3 mac addresses - one for the WAN, one for the local, one for the wireless. The one that WMC sees is the local, to which the media server is attached. My config is a bit ...

Re: It can't hurt...

Not directly related, but you may want to attempt to re-install WMP 10. The latest build, I think, is 10.00.00.3901 -- if you are running 10.00.00.3646, you should definitely update. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/download/download.aspx I am indeed running 3646. Will update no...

thanks for the reply. 1. Yes the very same track (track 01 from Van Halen's 1984, in this case which I just tested) will play on Roku #1 as well as the PC, be that Winamp or WMP10. When I try it on Roku #2, I get the Unable to Play song error. And on that same erroneous Roku, looking at the song inf...

Well I just verified that the M500 that wasn't working is still doing the same thing.. Acquiring License, then an immediate Unable to Play Song. The other M500 works fine, they are both connected to the same WMC source. What/when did that DRM update come out? The odd behavior started a week or so ag...

What about just logging in as a different user? I don't know if WMC stores stuff in All Users or for the specific user logged in. It might be useful to use sysinternals.com Process Explorer - it will see which files/registry entries that WMC is accessing.

I've noticed something similar. One oddity is that I installed WMC to a different computer, and it started working! Then switch that same M500 back to the original computer, and it gets the same error as you. Somehow one of the devices is working again, though I went through numerous trials of wired...

Is there anything just showing up as "Device2" or unknown within WMC? For some reason I had two show up - one on Ethernet (which was actually indicated as Roku Soundbridge) and one for wireless (Device2 or unknown). Now I'm going over wireless so I never felt a need to authorize the unknown device. ...

Make sure you can play them on the PC itself after installing WMC. I was playing Yahoo DRM files on the PC without any trouble, then installed WMC to get the Roku going. The Roku gave me the same error as you are getting. I then tried to play them on my PC, to no avail - I think the license got corr...
