That pretty much sums it up, yes!
It really is a shame that this has not shown up and it really doesn't get hinted at. I owned 6 Roku's (2 m2000s and 4 m1000) and adored them. Was really active in the beta's and feedback and all that. But after seeing 2.5 then 2.7 then RadioRoku and no Rhapsody I finally jumped ship.
I went to Soundbridge and have to say that I still like the Roku more as a device
I have not had a computer turned on in months. I have full Rhapsody AND I put all of my 60 gigs of ZMP3's online in storages at mp3tunes.com and there they are on my Squeezebox. Add radio and Pandroa to boot. I had an Infrant NAS already -- it runs slimserver local--but honestly with the direct it is not needed.
It was a tough (and costly) switch, but I just felt like the device was not suiting my needs because of this.
I keep looking in though -- my hopes are that sooner or later I might see it. I figure each time I drop another $300 for a Squeezebox (3 now) I pop in here and hope that I might just be able to go back to my Rokus
I am not being a whiner when I say to Roku -- "I think you all are missing the boat" and I truly think that more an dmore people like myself are going to have to make the switch because there is not even a hint of the possibility in the future.
Again - I swear this is not a bitch-fest email. Just an honest report of why I had to move my current loyalty. I have found similar (maybe not this many - but retiring their one roku and buying 1 slim device) situations with peers at work and friends. Maybe because it is my issue it appears like a big deal to me.
Anyway - glad I go tthat off my chest. I will keep looking and hoping I guess.
