Re: Roku + Plex + Media Server

Boy,I thought I had a lot of movies!! :mrgreen: My opinion is-always do what ever is easiest to do and to maintain.In my experience with raid(limited)reinstall was necessary and hit some snags,maybe being an older beast of a dual processor (not core!)xeon pc made it difficult.It worked well when I g...

Re: File Support (Plex, Rockbox, etc)

Frankly, I think Plex is the easiest. You might have to do some renaming of files and such to get it working 100%, I use "theRenamer" to name the files correctly (TV shows especially). I like it because you can stop and resume on another device (Android, Windows, Mac, Roku or iOS client)....

You will be very happy with Roku Netflix compared to using Vizio's app.

Re: Huffington Post to launch live channel

Can you just see it now,red Rokus for Republicans,blue for Democrats,purple for moderates(red+blue)green for Libertarians? You know, I'm actually thinking that someone will come up with Roku "skins" featuring colors like you suggest. The Obama circle. The Romney R. And sports logos. Camou...

Re: Huffington Post to launch live channel

Glad to see more content on the Roku, the MSM is pretty much getting a nail in its coffin. I do want to say a couple of things. I spend most of my Roku time on GBTV. That being said, I have read numerous articles on HuffPo and it does seem that they are a little bit more middle of the road then I e...

Re: Huffington Post to launch live channel

I wasn't even referring to you mommom as I didn't read enough of the thread to see what you wrote. If you did it too, it's not right. I said that.I apologized and explained I was trying to make a point. Maybe its my weird(Darn Liberal humor! :lol: ) sense of humor Its not right for you to blame Lib...

Re: Huffington Post to launch live channel

I realise that I'm probably stepping on a few toes here, but I disagree that there can't be some commentary on political or religious channel content within the forum. Posters come on here saying that GBtv, GOD channel, etc. (I'm just using these as examples!) are the best thing since sliced bread....

Re: Huffington Post to launch live channel

Well,I am sorry I took your remark the wrong way,Shawn.And DB,my remark was not actually meant as a "slap " to GBTV.I was merely making a point based on what I mistakenly read as approval of a "slap" to HP.I don't care what people want to watch,and I agree more choices are better...

Re: FilmOn, more like FilmOff

Maybe they changed the UK channels from free in advance of the Olympics,to help get more subscribers.Maybe it will change back.Crossing my fingers for you.In the mean time----My R-Pi came yesterday!! Trying Rasbmc ,I think.Wish I was better at Linux,Google will get a real workout as I get it set up.

Re: Huffington Post to launch live channel

If you only visit HP for politics,or you have not visited it,you might "chortle"at the comment.But if you visit their and find science news,tech,recipes,books,movies,home,parenting,you name it,it aggregates a ton of info that never touches on politics.But you go ahead,tune in to GBTV,enjoy...

Re: A bit of confusion

PLayOn can't be discussed here. YouTube does work on it. A complimentary STB if you are a little technical to Roku is a Raspberry Pi running XBMC. The YouTube Client is the best I have seen. Between Roku and XBMC you pretty much cover all the bases. They are oddly complimentary. Plex is another opt...

Huffington Post has a lot of content,lots of tech and entertainment news in addition to politics and straight news.I was hoping for something more along those lines .

Re: Problem With Roku Playing Media From My PC

I just hated renaming all of my movies so much.Even when I used a program to do it,like "the Renamer" and "Filebot" they made mistakes that took me time to find and fix.xbmc is a lot more forgiving for me when it comes to naming.

Re: netflix device limit
