Re: Is SoundBridge M1000 update still possible?

I can't answer your questions.  However, there is a separate forum area for "legacy products" including the sound bridge.  You might have better luck there. However, there is a "server is down" message from 2010 there.  It looks like the server was put back up for a while, but no...

Re: WEP key? trying to pull a Soundbridge out of mothballs

Thought I'd try one more time to see if anyone has any idea why my M500 isn't accepting the WEP Key (I recently moved and have a new ISP and router). Does it have something to do with the router's B/N/G mixed mode as suggested by an earlier poster? Any help would be appreciated. Probably too late (...

Re: How to stream audio from web

You might take a look at this thread.  Especially the private channel Simple Audio Player first mentioned in post #22, and some of the following posts. https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=97730&hilit=media+player+audio+stream It is not very sophisticated, but I did get it to work fo...

Re: How to stream audio from web

There doesn't seem to be an app that lets you directly add a stream like that. However, there are some Internet radio resources like TuneIn Radio, which are free, and KNLB is offered on TuneIn Radio. Download the TuneIn Radio app from Roku Channel Store. In the app, select the "Search" fun...

Re: Livestream channel issues

John, I too am curious about their business model. How does Livestream make any money? I'm pretty sure their business model is "paid vanity broadcasting."  The people with something to stream have to pay them.  They also have ads before some content; not sure if LS places the ad or the va...

Re: Livestream channel issues

Almost a year and the Roku Livestream app is more barren than ever.  Four "live" streams from the inauguration (wasn't that a few days ago?), and search function which yielded "no joy." I tried search to find a DSO concert playing today.  The DSO account only listed some archived...

Re: 5.1 output via optic cable

They both use DD+, not legacy DD5.1.  DD+ can't be transmitted over optical, and Roku 4 won't transcode to DD5.1.  Only the Ultra has that feature.  Roku, after considering for a while, has stated it will NOT be added to Roku 4.

Re: Does the streaming stick support WEP keys?

I also have a legacy device requiring WEP.  I don't have the stick, but an older Roku 2 XS; it supports WEP.  If the stick doesn't, that is a new "non-feature."  Fortunately, all my neighbor's networks are 1 bar to me, so hopefully I'm one bar to them (and the street).

Re: Roku Media Player and Playlists.m3u

Your problem is that RMP can not interpret the nature of the stream from the stream itself (other apps can).  A location of the form url:port can not be interpreted.  (I wasted about a day experimenting with streams that I knew (and Winamp knew) were mp3 streams, but if they had above form, RMP can'...

Re: Tunein Custom URL

For RMP, to use playlists, the .m3u file will need to be on a usb stick, and access that way. I'm not sure how to make it work using dlna server. I experimented over the weekend.  Using Windows Media Player as dlna server, RMP definitely sees the .m3u playlist file. However, as you said in earlier ...

Re: New Poster Needs Installation Guidance/suggestions....

A number of local stations (associated with all major networks) broadcast their news (not other programs) on Livestream.  Livestream has a Roku app, so the answer is maybe.  You can also open Livestream in a browser app and checkout what they are broadcasting.  There will be a sidebar with genres, o...

Re: Tunein Custom URL

Returning to the beginning of this thread, now that I understand the minor differences in .m3u and .pls files (at least for streaming stations), I'm disappointed that Roku Media Player has never been updated to parse both and store some reasonable number of "radio buttons." It's easy enou...
