Re: Mediafly and Loading... Please Wait

I googled mediafly buffering and got to this thread. I'm having the same issue with the same Earth-Touch channel. It rebuffers after a few seconds of play. I can watch (most) other channels with only the initial loading delay, but some must be much higher demand on my 8 mbps bandwidth. Last evening ...

Re: Roku to Sony receiver

I have the sound routed into my TV then use the TVs audio out back into my amp. I use the digital optical output from the Roku.

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Just sharing my first attempts with streams. I wanted to see if I could stream from podcasts and simply got the url of each mp3 podcast and used that, including the file name and extension and they play fine. I made a stream for about ten episodes of a podcast giving each the series name. Nice.

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I was thinking about a simple tskill bat file. I'm away from my pc now but tomorrow would test a bat file with: tskill python /a This, theoretically, should kill all instances of python running. If this works then I'd just have a start.bat (mymedia.bat renamed) and a stop.bat on the desktop. DG Upda...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Right O! Album art is back in all its glory. Thanks for that, and I'm not sure why that little tidbit of info isn't documented in the instructions (that once up and running the app/server should be started with mymedia.py (or the bat file). Doing it in that manner only allows the server to be stoppe...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Any one else not getting embedded album art with the MyMedia channel? I'm wanting to find out if it's something here or in the build. Is there a specific ID3 protocol that needs to be adhered to? Having added art to over 600 mp3 albums took sometime, and it did work that first day, but now only art...

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

Well, after everything I did yesterday, ending up with all working again, but today back to NO ALBUM ART. All of the mp3 files have embedded art, along with a jpg for artist in the artist folder (which does display). Any idea why embedded cover art shows up one day and not the next? Bump Any one el...

Are you using component video cable hookup? If so, if in the wrong order you may just get black/white.

Re: box is frozen

I tried the paper clip thing, no dice. I think my remote is shot out. Or the part in the box that recieves the singnal. If I got a universal remote can it work with this thing? I read other posts about using a universal remote but I am not shure if they will work. I have a Logitech Harmony and it d...

Re: Roku XD stops Linksys wireless router

Nope. I also have a Linksys router, a very stable router I find. I used to have a dlink which would lose the printer EVERY night, forcing a reboot. Is it possible to try another router? Set it up exactly as the current one and see if it behaves the same. Keep the receipt for the new one, if you have...

Re: Can Roku on netgear router shut down wireless connection

If the settings in your old router and the new one are the same, then shouldn't matter (SSID the same as before along with IP range and router IP etc). The Roku would be looking for the network "name" by its SSID you put in the router (assuming you did, otherwise it would be the default wh...
