Things i would like :wink:

Upgrade of the exisiting soundbridges
1. WPA
2. 802.11g
3. Active speakers to replace the end-caps.
4. Routing from ethernet to wireless so that you can use the SB as a wireless bridge.

New types
1. Red display like my Yamaha reciver and DVD player.
2. Hifi formfactor like a slimline DVD player but with the M2000 display
3. Notebook "silent" harddive (2,5' 80GB USB or inside) as an option to let one soundbridge run as a media server for the other soundbridges. Like the hifidelio but with the M2000 display.
4. Black paint finish as an option.
5. connectors on the back center instead of at the ends.

greetings from Germany

after using the SB for a while, I have some button for you to consider.

iRadio - One press and you have the Internet Radio stations to choose from.

Info - Tells the user the stream info, file type and so on.


mServer - One press and you have access to a choice of your music servers (WMC, MM, Slimserver, XWPC and so on).

I find changing libraries/configurations to be combersome. I like to use the media servers, my wife likes the iRadio, which makes a lot of button presses to get there.

Backlight the buttons, possibly the same way cell phones do.


On that same note, on the select button in the middle of the 4 way, add a little bump to it like some cell phones have on their #5 button so you can get your bearings. If I could feel where the select button was, I could map off that in the dark.
Actually a few buttons should have some texture to them. Select... Play... and maybe one or two others.


I just checked mine, they are all smooth, perhaps I have an older hardware Rev?

I meant they should add texture to those buttons.

Composite video out for on-screen display

Wed Aug 03, 2005 8:14 pm

For those of us using the SB with our home stereo system, it's likely we have an extra input in our receivers for a video out from the SB. This video out could provide the larger display for current song, stream info, etc. Maybe even show album art from iTunes at some point?? Of course the display on my M1000 is *very* cool looking by itself right above the receiver.

I've got to say there is little to ask for in this device. It's soooo nice. Great product!!

WPA request

Wed Aug 31, 2005 6:32 am

I can see you all want WPA support. Me too. I wont buy a soundbridge until it has it.

I have made a new topic telling Roku this, and have included a poll.

Maybe if all those wanting WPA add their votes to the poll Roku can get an idea about how many of use think WPA is important?

i'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Redesigned endcaps, to accomodate thicker cables. Endcaps should be better quality e.g. aluminium.

The idea of clipon active speakers is a great idea. maybe using a metal bracket on the back of the M2000 if they are to heavy. This way we would have a wireless ghetto blaster. I would love to take the music outside or up on the terrase and only require a power outlet

802.11g, but I guess its just to buy a new compact flash card with this.

Hmmm.... to re-iterate...

- 802.11g & WPA (maybe even WPA2 now that the spec has been ratified?)
- besides the coax SPDF connector, what about including a optical one as well?

That's about it. My deciding factor on purchasing one is a minimum of WPA...[/list]

They have both optical and coax digital connections.
