Need to be able to click to select a spot in song (on laptop

Sat Oct 18, 2008 7:46 am

I am a musician and I want to use my Roku for learning and practicing music. I need to be able to repeat certain sections by clicking on the status (progress?) bar.

I want to access this control from my laptop, not the remote control.

I have tried iBridge and VisualMR and neither seem to have this functionality.

Without it the Roku isn't worth using for me.

thanks for your help.

Unfortunately the SoundBridge currently doesn't support seeking to a defined point in time of a song. I assume it is basically the same technical problem as why there isn't a fast forward/rewind (see long discussion here: lot's of users need it but Roku basically said it's to difficult to do).

All you can do with the SoundBridge is skip to the beginning of a song. That's why VisualMR as well as any other remote controll application based on RCP cannot do it.

Easily control your SoundBridge from your Windows PC or wireless PocketPC with VisualMR

Thanks for taking time to reply. I guess I can now conclude my long search.

Anyone want to buy a really nice SoundBridge?
