    Nokia 770 Skin

    I posted a Nokia770 skin for Slimservers 6.2 and 6.5 on my slimserver page, http://benklaas.com/slimserver/. The skin is optimized for the 770's 800x400 screen and looks pretty great on the device, a gadget I like more and more every day.

    There are still some bugs to work out (be warned: the All Songs link on any browse page will play the entire library right now), but I wanted to get this out and solicit feedback before I take off for a few days doing holiday schtuff.

    I started a discussion thread on the dev forum a few days ago as well...
    http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=19303

    As the skin matures, I plan on trying to get it folded into the slimserver distribution.

    cheers and happy holidays,

    Cheers Ben, my 770 arrived a couple of days ago. I'll download your skin over the next couple of days and give it a try.

    TAR problems?

    Can anyone get these tars to open on an XP machine? I'm using WinAce and I don't see any contents.

    WinZip 8.1 tries, but chokes with an error reading the header.

    Help

    II am not trying to hijack the thread, but thought you guys mmight help. I own a Roku Soundbridge. My computer is a Mac PPowerbook with Apple Airport Extreme as WIFI router. I have bbeen looking for a GUI remote control since buying the Roku. I ttried the Phillips RC9800i, but UPnP is just like Microsoft's pplug-and-play . . . it is actually "plug and pray". The 770 llooks like it could do what I wanted, so I bought one this wweek. It is awesome! Anyway, to my problem. When accessing mmy Roku via the slimserver web interface, music plays for 30 sseconds then hiccups for about 5-10 seconds. I assume this is aa buffering issue. However the internet radio works fine. I know the easy solution is to get a true Slim Device instead of tthis Roku, but I want to make sure it iisn't a Apple issue. Aany suggestions? Is the Roku iincompatible with slimserver
    websurfing control or is my Mac iincompatible with slim? Sorry so long winded. Thanks in advance for your input.

    You're not likely to get much help with Roku here, as there is
    neither interest nor knowledge.

    SlimServer comes with SoftSqueeze, and you could try out what happens
    with that to help diagnose the prob;em.

    I think I remember reading somewhere that the Roku only 'works' with an older release of Slimserver.

    Can anyone get these tars to open on an XP machine? I'm using WinAce and I don't see any contents.
    Ah... does this mean I can't use it?

    No interest or knowledge in Mac either? I would get Slim device if I knew the problem was a Roku issue & not a Mac issue. I don't want to buy Slim device only to have same problem. Thx in advance for your input.

    Man this 770 is S W E E T!
