the rf remote on my original is probably the best rf remote I've ever owned, as far as range and not caring what direction it is pointed.

EDIT:  IR REMOTE doh all these damn acronyms  :old:

The Roku ships, batteries included. Mine must be dead already, because it doesn't act like a UHF/RF remote - it acts like an IR. I swear I read that you could upgrade to the RF remote.

BTW, here's a page from the manual. RTFM yourself  :lmao:

That's for the wireless network signal. Not the remote.

That AV rack sounds like an enclosure to me.  :tongue:

It's a rack. It's a glass shelf above a wooden shelf. Open air all around.

In other news, set up PlayOn last night. Found out two things:

PlayOn does not "play on" on any Roku 2 device. BUT if you buy a lifetime premium license ($79.95) you get a free Roku LT box that WILL play PlayOn. So I went ahead and bought it, since I anticipate using it a lot. Reading the forums, ESPN3 streams great to the LT, and for college football alone, it's totally worth it (I spent more than that last year on tickets and online subscriptions to follow/stream my team). There's also a Fox soccer channel that I know my in-laws will watch when they come over. Plus, I will now have Roku in the bedroom and living room with this deal.

Going to set up Plex tonight as a backup, and then it's on to installing Navi-X.

There are remote apps for the Roku available but the phone might have to be rooted. I found 2 for my phone but there were none for my GF's pone.  :huh:

I have the android Roku remote. Used it last night. It's a bit sensitive, but works great. I also set up PlayOn for the android.

Navi-X on Plex? Don't think it is available for Plex.

So it will play only on the Roku LT but not any Roku2? Why is that?

According to PlayOn's website, there is a line in the Roku 2's firmware that prevents PlayOn from streaming properly. The folks at Roku HATE the folks at PlayOn and won't do anything to help them or cooperate in the development of their private channel, so for now it only works on lower Roku models.

Had trouble figuring out Navi-X for PlayOn and couldn't find any concrete help on the internet.

As for Navi-X on Plex, I thought I saw it was available, but on further reading, development stalled.

I can always run Navi-X off my computer, but as for Roku I might be SOL.

Navi-X works well on XBMC but you can't use XBMC on the Roku like you can Plex. I read the same thing where the development of Navi-X for Plex is pretty much dead.
