    Hi,

    Anyone got a Roku soundbridge or Squeezebox working on their XPMCE machine? Any pro's, cons, issues etc.

    Thinking of one for my bedroom and some small active speakers. I know Roku uses WMP10 and UPnP does this work ok in the background of XPMCE.

    Cheers

    Yes, slimserver will work ok on an mce machine.

    slimserver 6.2 is just released and I do beleive it stlll works with the roku player as well.

    The new squeezebox 3 is quite nice,and even going back to the squeezebox1, they're so much more feature rich than the roku. IMO

    I just got my Roku M1000 today. I have an XP MCE machine where I have already ripped a bunch of CD's to, you have to download Windows Media Connect from the Microsoft and hey presto it works great!!

    What sort of speakers are you using with your soundbridge?

    Thanks
