Could not connect even though I ok'd it with my fw so install was not complete. It suggested retrying which meant a relogin and then said user etc already exists. Went to uninstall and gave me a corrupt file error. GARBAGE
For true power try HFS.exe. It gives you complete access (with login thankyou) to any file on your pc from anywhere with the ability to download OR upload back to your own pc.

I use it to play audio on the Wii. Video works too, but the video quality isn't that impressive. Not for a local network. Only used Flash as playback since the Wii doesn't do RM or WM. If Opera on Wii supported Quicktime(since the Wii can play Quicktime movies) they should make a Quicktime encoder. Although i don't think it'd be free anymore.

After some time i gave this program another try, if look at my previous statement you will see i gave it a 1. Now however allot of those things are not true!
I can watch divx videos, i can have multiple logins and best off, the tv from home streams marvelously on my work computer I am a true believer in this great software.

Very easy to use, and a secure way of viewing files outside of your own PC. Trustworthy and quite fast.

Awesome awesome software.

Hauppauge WinTV GO - unlisted but works with Orb.

I read the one review earlier that only one person can view at a time.
This isn't a software limitation, this is a hardware limitation. My TV tuner when used by Orb can not even be viewed by the local user. The video stream coming from the physical card can only be seen by one program...Orb or the TV Tuner software.
Its not that hard to go out and buy a cheapo computer with a cheapo tv tuner card and set up another computer. Its quite cheap nowadays.

The only negative about the software is it will make the video 320x240 regardless of line speed. I was using the software on the local computer for testing as well a computer on the network. The video bitrate was through the roof, but the video still remained 320x240.

I'm suprised that randal2k wasn't more satisfied with this software. I've been using it for a while now with great success. I have a Media Center PC so I'm also getting all the live TV stuff as well. Mine seems to work very well, and the cost is right too. If you have a pocket device and want to stream live tv or your videos to it, this is the way to go. Compare it with the competors (smartvideo or mobitv) and this one just blows them away.

the program cannot stream Divx files. It cannot use multiple logins. It's slow to communicate media. There is little to no Help, and to add multiple logins it costs money.

Over all.. worthless.
