Actually, I just restored my system. I unplugged the Roku from my outlet, then plugged it back in. Voila! There it was.
I wonder why this happened? Setup was a breeze (I use airport extreme to rout my signal from comcast modem). My tv is a sony bravia led lcd, and i set up the roku with the hdmi cable.
But I have done something differently. Last night, I decided to use the USB media channel to watch a couple of movies that I converted to mp4 and put on my thumb drive. It was my first time using the usb. I converted the movies to an apple preset...but noticed that one conversion wasn't so hot--the audio lagged the video and the picture was grainy. I converted another one to an mp4 hd resolution--770 mbs ballooned to 2 gigs! Could I have blown the memory?
Are there any guidelines for using thumb drives on the Roku? I have both a Mac and PC at home and use my thumb drive on both. Are there any guidelines on the safest conversion for the roku? I notice that presets always include apple tv and other apple products, also archos, creative zen. Does roku need to provide a preset?
