If so, make sure you delete all the .pyc files in all the subdirectories. If there's any chance that they're mixed you may want to try a fresh install into its own directory.
I unzipped the source files into separate folders. But I will go ahead and re-download and install from scratch to be extra sure. Is anything special to do on the Roku client other than just reinstalling?

Is it that the videos don't show up, or they show up but won't play? It's always a good idea to try just using the browser interface to the server (http://localhost:8001/feed) to test things. You should be able to at least save the "media" link to a file. As always, check the output of the Python window and the my_media_log.txt file for any messages that might be helpful.
I think you are going to be right on this one, it was indeed a root directory! The videos all showed up but they wouldn't play. I have been using the browser to test things since my first post where I linked to the .xml files.

I believe that it used to work just fine with those images and an update to the firmware has made it slower, but there's really no way to prove that now. If you have PIL installed, it should make the issue better. With properly sized poster images the navigation is much better. I prefer the high contrast theme and it's the one I use in my personal version of the channel. I'll have to compare the two and see if I notice a difference, but it seems pretty snappy to me.
Yeah I have PIL installed using the Windows installer package.
One thing I hadn't thought of before, which probably doesn't matter but nonetheless, I am using Python 2.7 instead of 2.6.
With regards to my MP3 issues, almost certainly the code is fine since no one else seems to have the same issue. If nothing else this is a nice little Python exercise for me to try and figure out what the problem is with my setup.
