I am slightly dissapointed with the new USB channel. I was hoping there would be an update from the beta.
I find it difficult to find a video that will actually play correctly on it. I understand this is a codec issue (or it doesn't play avi)....but my question is...
Will this channel be updated to support more codecs and extensions? It seems like the big missing extension (container) is AVI. However, even the currently supported containers rarely play because of the narrow scope and "pickyness" of the encoding.
I would really like to see this expanded. It's a great concept, but wondering if Roku has serious (and significant) plans to update this channel.
Also, it seems to re-scan too much. Every time I move up and down a folder or exit a movie (which is rare to find one that works) it has to re-scan. I could see this for a network share (samba, nts, etc), but not for an attached USB device. The re-scanning needs to be turned down a notch.
