Thanks, Frank for updating the links. And thanks, dupondt, for your contributions and comments The quick response makes me think that you are still very dedicated to RadioRoku, or perhaps you just have an unhealthy obsession
The soundbridge with radioroku is something worth preserving, however its future doesn't look bright.
The support of Roku Labs for the soundbridge has been well documented, and all I'll say about that is that I'm grateful that Roku is continuing to maintain their server, given that it is no longer an active product. What worries me is that when Roku finally pulls the plug on Radio Roku, there isn't something to take over. I hope that at that time Roku will keep the forums running, and will supply the Radio Roku software and database to the community. Or we can hope that as servers, administration and bandwidth become cheaper, Radio Roku will be a small enough expense that its not worth stopping. Or both.
I believe that another problem is that the users of Soundbridge are less likely to contribute to Radio Roku. I would be able to take an old laptop, configure it and throw it behind or on top of my sound system and achieve all of the things that I find useful in the Soundbridge. I don't do that because its so much less work to hook up the Soundbridge (and it looks cool too). This also explains why three years after buying my Soundbridges, this is my first post on the forums (although I've been lurking). What I'm saying is that the type of person that contributes time and effort to project like this (Frank and dupondt are good examples), is less likely to have bought the soundbridge in the first place. On, the other hand, Soundbrige owners are likely to be somewhat technical and analytical, because with the lack of good marketing for the product, those are the people that are likely to have realized what a cool idea and product it is. That's my 2 cents worth of opinion.
The posts about the CBC issue seam to be heavily tilted towards asking for a fix or offering work-arounds, rather than solutions. (I waited about 3 weeks for someone to fix the URL's before I gave up and figured out how to do it.) This made me realize that more support is needed from the community, or this worthy piece of technology will go from being sick to dead. I'll try to stop being lazy and provide a little of that support. ...Paul
