A definitive list of UK ones please If in the UK and have a pinnacle branded unit it won't directly connect to itunes. Instead of using iTunes share, install firefly alongside. This accesses iTunes library/playlists etc. There is a licensing isue between pinnacle and apple. To all intents, absolute...

Hi Bird Don't give up - the Roku really can be virtually 100% solid once you get it configured - I hardly ever touch mine - it really does just turn on and play, and on the very rare occasion it locks up, a reset/reboot seems to cure. It might be worth chatting to anyone you know who *is* more famil...

I use a 3com adsl router/modem and apart from checking it was set for 802.11b&g and setting the DHCP lease expiry time to "forever", it worked first time and has done ever since.

I use sync toy and so far it has been 100% reliable. It is worth checking the various options. If you use "combine" rather than "synchronize", you still get changed files synced, but no deletes and renames are cross copied/deleted. This IMHO is safer. Years ago I used a backup/re...

What firewall? are you using AVG firewall as well. If so it is configurable, but very deep.

firewall => settings => configure => applications => edit applications => action (drop box) advanced config => create rule. You could try "allow all traffic"

I would like to add a thought. I am not an audio engineer, but do a bit of home recording. One of the criticisms of some sound cards (creative mainly) is that the cards are locked at 48kHZ internally and therefore have to re-sample if you record at anything other than 48. My Question. What happens t...

What RokuMike says, but thought you might like a positive comment from a user - unless you are an audiophile and are going to use the digital connection to connect to audiophile gear and get into serious subjective discussions about resampling, jitter and other esoteric analysis, I can tell you that...

s there a place/website (post?) that I can go to that has some step-by-step setup instructions for a newbie who is getting dizzy trying to understand the process I need to follow to set everything up? I’m afraid I’ll just be taking up too much of everyone’s time/bandwith (I see I already doub...

Hi yes, you are fairly close in your assumptions. The whole thing starts with your music library that can be on your PC/Mac in just about any format. Watch out for any DRM'd music though as this may not play. Your PC/Mac has to be connected to a network for Roku to work. This means that you must hav...

I could see the music industry putting pressure on the manufacturers to create a way to roadblock audio at the source


I can't see this being very likely since so many PC's/Macs are used for music production where capturing audio going thru' the card is the principal function.

FF-RW. Why would you ever want to do that? Just accept the fact that you need to listen to the entire song. When you listen to the entire song it works great! I agree, not a show stopper, but it would be handy sometimes. Very handy if you want to listen to a a middle part of a very long file like a...

and contractural aspects to the process Personally, I am not holding my breath for an iT7 fix anytime soon. I think the clue is in the above. I have no idea what the arrangement is between Roku and Apple, but I can see that there is little payback to Apple in re-licensing iTunes. My guess is that t...

Before downgrading iT to an earlier version, I strongly recommend you try Firefly. It works seamlessly with iT 7. Its really just a little bridge between iT and SB and replaces the server bit of iTunes. All your playlists etc from iT7 work just fine. If you get FF to work as 98% of people do first t...

there is a windows XP bug that relates to missing icons in the sys tray. On my PC if I enable uPnP, then some tray icons sometimes don't appear. If I disable uPnP, the problem goes away. As I don't need uPnP (I use firefly!) I don't need uPnP so keep it disabled.
