If you have a Roku Netflix Player/DVP, you may be interested in knowing that I've released a Squeezebox Server based music player channel for it. You can find more information here: http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=31915

And some eye candy...

Looks interesting but lack of flac and m4a makes it impossible for me...

yeah, no Ogg-Vorbis and no Flac, no Roku. Hopefully they'll update this in the future.

Looks good, worked for me. Of course I don't have very many MP3s though.

On large libraries it is my opinion that it needs a search function or at a minimum a Jump to Letter X feature/function.

WARNING: If you attempt to play any file other then the files it supports, it will crash and/or lock up your Roku Player.

I haven't been able to connect, I've added my IP address and Port and I continue to get an error message. Could this be due to the fact I have the Roku player wired and I'm running my duets wireless?

What a brilliant program - works a treat!

That from me is a real accolade because usually I am so disappointed and cranky about 'feature' addons, etc.

Sad there seem to be no developments recently - but maybe it's so good, it doesn't need any!

Ooops - have run into a strange issue. When I switch to Album Art - there's only ever ONE cover displayed - all the others are just generic grey disks. I've rescanned the files, tried different LMS versions on 3 separate PCs, always the same problem. Another quirk is that on occasion the one art image can change to a different album.

Anyone else seen this phenomenon?

I'm at a loss to determine where the problem lies ....

Simply a note - the author has updated this Roku app and album art displays perfectly now.

If you have a Roku, install this app!

But does it still lock up on FLAC (etc.) files? Is there any hope of those files playing?

I find the interface really clunky/slow/difficult to use. And it does lock up with FLAC which makes it a non-starter for me.

Anyone know of a channel for Roku that simply displays the now-playing info for a specified player? I don't actually care about playing the audio through my Roku.

The Roku is only able to play mp3 and wma files.

Yes, sorry for not being clear. I do realize that. Still looking for a Roku channel that just shows now playing info for a designated SB player.
