By default, the swap application creates a 64MB swap file. The rest of the space on the card isn't being used for anything. If you like, you can change the command-line for the swap application to create a bigger file (I believe), but it's not necessary unless you plan to run many applications at on...

mlknez, I don't really understand the point of this thread. We know that Roku never gives out dates and that they have recently been busy working on a different project. I think we are all assuming (hoping?) that version 2.0 will be complete at some point. We're just not holding our breath for it to...

You should just be able to open WordPad, copy and paste the code from this forum, and save the file. I actually use TextPad (not included with Windows), but I think with WordPad, you want to save the file as a "Unicode Text Document" as opposed to any of the other options. Someone will correct me if...

If you follow the process of putting the two files on the CF card, then the answer is yes. The files will cause the share to be re-mounted when you boot or re-insert the CF card. If you look at the CF card on your PC after running the swap program, you will notice that there is a 64MB swap file on t...

The swap file never needs to be re-created. If you reboot the unit or remove the CF card, the swap file needs to be re-mounted. The easiest thing for you to do is this: 1.) Download the swap program and put it on a CF card. 2.) Insert the CF card in the Roku and run the swap program. 3.) Wait for a ...

A couple answers... Copy and Delete need to be re-compiled, and nobody has done that yet that I know of. MPlay Rocks! If you know some Linux commands, I believe you can copy the files to the internal memory, but I don't know that I would bother. If you are running a revision B (newer models), then y...

There have been several posts in the past with folks complaining about black levels. Some say the problem only exists on still images but video is fine. Others claim they have issues with both. I don't think anyone has posted a final answer.

I believe that somebody has previously posted a solution to creating a network swap file. Also, somebody has previously posted the solution to having to run the swap program every time you boot. I would think that the latter would be required regardless of where your swap file lives.

The difference between component and S-Video is comparable to the difference between night and day. Unless there is something wrong with your cables or your Roku, it should not affect the video passing through regardless of the Roku's resolution settings. That's an odd one.

Re: 480 switch to 1080 and compatible setup with AV receiver

If the HD1000 is already set at default for 480 and my hdtv is at 1080 do I need to change the default to 1080? I would set the HD1000 to whatever resolution your HDTV supports natively. Mine is at 720p because my TV is 1366x768. If you are using the Roku component pass-through, it will not upscale...

Transfer rate for USB2.0 is what like 420 or 460 megabits? Since the ethernet port on the Roku is only 100 megabits and the SMB functionality is even slower, I don't think the external drive will present a bottleneck. I have almost 300 movies on external Firewire 800 drives, and they play back perfe...

This has been covered previously in this forum. You should be able to find it pretty easily. I searched for and found it a couple weeks ago.

Because it's easy and because the Guest account presents a security issue, I just created a basic account on my PC for the Roku. Then, I just enter the user name and password into the Network settings on the Roku, and everything works great.

Merging VOB files

I have DVDs on my PC that I have ripped into multiple VOB files (i.e. Gangs of New York because it was on two discs), and I would like to merge the two VOBs into one while also merging the IFO files to keep chapter information and whatnot. I've found programs to merge the VOBs that work fine, but no...
