Roku has posted in their forums, links to a slew of additional codecs for the HD1000. These include:
- Apple Lossless (ALAC)
- The True Audio (TTA)
and many more.
They've also so much as explicitly said "It uses the same frameworks as the SoundBridge" and "The frameworks have been in the SoundBridge for a year, so it's stable".
The question then, becomes:
What is the HONEST, OFFICIAL stance from Roku on why these codecs are not supported in the SoundBridge, and WHEN are they going to be?
Alternately, if Roku themselves are not going to support it, even though they've stated it's entirely possible, *and* posted the code, what can/will Roku do to allow 3rd parties to compile add-ons to the Roku so we can support these ourselves?
I'm looking for a straight reply, and looking forward to it!
