Re: An open letter to Roku's CEO Anthony Wood

Alas, Anthony my have seen the writing on the wall when video streaming became commonplace (Youtube and such). Not to mention that, while the SoundBridge was ahead of its time in that it was one of the first internet radio streaming appliances being sold at the time, it still relied on the existence...

Re: itunes 10.5?

I installed iTunes 10.5 last weekend. After setting my preferences in iTunes and firing up my M1001, everything plays just fine. Music and playlists are all listed, accessible and playable. As a bonus, the installer is much smaller without Quicktime included (Quicktime is no longer necessary for iTu...

Re: WMP11 discovered by SoundBridge but library appears empt

Check your event logs (System Log I believe) and see if the Media Connect service is crashing during startup. If it is, make sure these other services are set to "Automatic" at startup and reboot: HTTP (if listed) HTTP SSL SSDP Discovery Service Universal Plug and Play Device Host Windows ...

M1001 Web Interface Anomoly

I've had this issue with my M1001 and finally discovered why it's happening. When I go to the M1001's web interface via IE8 (or any other version of IE I've used), the player controls won't load, but the rest of the page loads fine. If I go to any other page in the interface (Presets, Config, Status...

Re: Thinking of buying a NAS (uNSLUng/Firefly has died on me

D-Link DNS-321 or DNS-323 (323 has torrent and USB printer support). I've had the 323 for over 3 years now and it has been trouble free the whole time. Both models use 2 SATA drives, configurable as RAID0, RAID1, JBOD or single disks. Has built in iTune server (works flawlessly with SB) and UPnP. Ha...

Very impressive features on that NAS box. I may get one when/if my D-Link DNS-323 dies. Althoug I've been quite happy with the 323's performance. The 323's case holds 2 SATA hard drives at any capacity you want to put in it (up to 2TB of storage!) I have 2 Western Digital 160GB drives in mine mirror...

Another thing to keep in mind when using wireless is interference from other routers or other electronic devices in your area. Are you in a house or apartment? If you're an apartment dweller your chances of your router's signal being stepped on by someone else's router is much greater (if you have a...

Why not use the iTunes server on the 323 instead of the UPnP server? I use it and it works perfectly with my M1001 (I tried the UPnP too but also found it sometimes would not browse - but the iTunes server works everytime and without the other junk like pictures, etc). I've recently upgraded my 323 ...

Tiny Roku Companion PC?

I saw this while surfing and thought it would probably make a good Roku companion. It's called the Artigo: http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/embedded/artigo/ Just add a spacious notebook HD, some notebook type memory (SO-DIMM) and an OS (Win, Ubuntu or Linux) and Viola!, instant pico-sized PC that c...

I wouldn't recommend it since it only has a single hard drive. If the hard drive goes, so does your data/music. The 323 has 2 SATA drives which can be set up to mirror each other (RAID 1) providing data security and increased read speeds (the 323 also supports RAID 0 and JBOD). If one hard drive goe...

If you mean the DNS-323 then, yes, it works fine right out of the box. Just copy your MP3's or AAC file to the 323, enable the iTunes server in the 323's web menu, point it to the folder on the 323 that contains your music and viola!, it plays. Sadly, there is no easy solution to create/use multiple...

It's probably not Vista so much as it is WMP-11 and it's quirky built-in media connect feature. Between network user rights for non-local drives and registry hacks it is just not a very user-friendly combination to easily setup (and you sound PC savvy enough). In fact, I was going to suggest (if you...

I have the Universal Unifier with MRF-100A RF Extender. The remote itself can, either by preset codes or by "learning" individual commands, operate up to 8 different devices. The RF Extender, when placed in a room in eye-view of the equipment you want to control (in my case my Roku and my ...
