My RevA unit just died (within the past 2 weeks). I purchased it in March 2004... I had planned on purchasing a second unit within the next few weeks, but am now unsure about the product's longevity...
Is there word on the durability of HD1000 RevB's power unit?
Did anybody ever figure out how to completely power the unit off (other than unplugging the thing)?
Roku has expressed intent to continue to support the Photobridge, though they'll probably try to integrate the features of the Soundbridge OS into the next version of the Photobridge. They currently seem to be incompatible product lines, because Soundbridge requires a music server, while RokuOS on the HD1000 can access files off a file server (with cheap USB external HDs & NAS routers, who needs to leave their workstations running 24x7 just for the Roku?). Hopefully the Roku guys have anticipated these concerns.
BTW, many people who bought the first generation (RevA) HD1000s used the Roku Forum before
it was wholly web-based... rnugent probably posted his feedback on the mailing list forum.
Not mean to be hard, but you have 2 posts so far. So my question is that when you had problem with setting it up, why didn't you post your questions here?
I have never had any problem with the unit. It would be nice if you can keep you tone down.
and further more... The thing has NEVER worked right...
