Just used TuneBite the other night for about 60 WMA files. This is one of the best programs I have ever used (comparing actual working with advertised promises). I can't hear any difference between the MP3 files it produced and the originals. Plust it did it all at 4x speed in batch mode, so my tota...

I use AnyDVD (http://www.slysoft.com) in conjunction with DVDShrink to rip basically everything. On very rare occasions, I use VOB Blanker instead of DVDShrink. AnyDVD is the best. It's not actually ripping software. It just interprets data from your DVD Drive and presents it to the PC with all copy...

It seems to be out-dated at this point (or at least it will be quite soon). There are at least 4 different HD-capable players coming out in the first quarter of 2006.

For DVD playback, the PB only reads uncompressed mpeg2 files. It doesn't do MPEG4 with DivX or Xvid natively. The storage space adds up pretty quickly. I have roughly 350 movies stored on 3.2 terabytes of RAID 5 NAS. All this just to avoid getting up and putting the DVD in the player! :)

You could try a program like www.tunebite.com to convert your WMA files into MP3, OGG, etc.

MPlay gives you the skip ahead 30sec back 10, skip ahead 3 minutes back 30 seconds feature. Just look at the links in TheEndless' signature.

I had a Marantz RC5000 (same as Pronto from a few years back) and now have a Harmony 880. Having used both quite a bit and having a less technologically-inclined wife, I would have to agree with everything that Mebby pointed out.

If you highlight the share in the left-hand side of the GUI and click enter, it will re-scan the share and update the right-hand side.

I think he's just saying he gets the broken picture icon in the GUI signifying that the PB sees a file but cannot open it.

I'm pretty sure it already does remember at least the zoom mode if not both that and the audio track. Whenever I rip my movies, I go into all the latest ones and adjust these settings as part of my check for valid files. I've never needed to re-do these settings.

You are correct. The power button basically just disables the outputs. The unit never turns off unless you unplug it. The outlet on the Denon could work. The only negative would be that you have to wait for it to boot, find network shares, etc. every time you want to power everything up and use the ...

They run hot because they never actually turn off unless you unplug them and there is no fan in the case. Pushing the power button just disables the outputs. Nothing stops running or anything like that. Eventually, your power supply will most likely burn out just like many of ours have. Other than t...

You can create your own art packs that contain photos, music, etc. Another member of the forum built a little tool to help with the scripting required.

I picked option 3. When some of the new units that can do full DVD playback and HD become available in 2006, I will be jumping ship from Roku. If I don't, I'll basically just be waiting for my power supply to burn out again. If it takes a year, they'll probably have the price at $150 to replace it b...
