Squeezebox Joins SoundBridge

Like the Roku SoundBridge, now the Logitech Squeezebox is being discontinued. Go to <http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57519226-221/logitech-leaves-squeezebox-fans-wondering-whats-next/>. I always considered the Roku software to be superior to the Squeezebox, but that no longer seems relevant. Is...

Re: What about Clearwire?

I have used CLEAR since July 2010. I live approximately 0.5 miles from the tower and have five bars (the maximum) on my Motorola modem. My Netflix reception varies from four dots plus HD down to two dots.

Re: authorizing soundbridge to play itunes

In iTunes on a Mac, select "Preferences" under the iTunes menu. Then, click on the icon for "Sharing" on the top row. Click on "Share my library on my local network" and either your entire library or selected playlists.

Re: Display 2 Lines

While playing music, press the "bright" button and then the up or down arrow to select a different font (I prefer fixed 16) and then press "select" to confirm the selection.

Re: HOGOWORD - new game in Channel Store

I prefer playing HogoWord with the classic Roku remote. It's much easier to navigate the alphabet with the old style remote than with the new remote. Really? I only have two old style remotes, so I haven't tried it with the new one. Is there an issue with the new one I should know about, for future...

Re: 3 Rokus, all getting same DHCP assignments

I have two Roku video players (and three Roku SoundBridges) connected wirelessly to my Apple Airport Extreme and all work well with individual IP addresses assigned by the Airport. If your modem also acts as a router, perhaps there is a conflict between it and your Time Capsule. You may find an answ...

iTunes 10.1

Is iTunes 10.1, the new version with AirPlay and iOS 4.2, compatible with the SoundBridge?

Re: iTunes 10.0.1 works ok with Soundbridge?

Hi, Is it safe to update my iTunes from 9.0.2 to the latest, 10.0.1? My M500 SoundBridge is running software version 3.0.44. There was an incompatibility 3-4 years ago with an iTunes update in which it didn't work with the Soundbridge, so I don't want that to happen again. My Soundbridge M1001 runn...

Re: Speed test app.

The SDK/API doesn't give much of an ability to get to lower level networking info. It pretty much just offers file upload/download capability (it's not even possible to get the Roku's IP address, for example). -JT I'm neither a programmer nor a network expert, so I may be way off base, but this may...

MacAl, that's interesting. Maybe I'll put in the ability to select the server. Have you tried this app on your Roku, and if so, which server does it choose? -JT


SpeedTest on my Roku uses the Washington, DC server.
