Good to hear but I'm still going to take the extra precautions of setting up a Google wallet account and using their free debit card and just put enough in to cover the cost of the software that way even if someone does get it, they won't be able to get any money. I know that some of you feel that it is the credit card companies problem with fraud and such but if you ever have your identity stolen it is a PITA to get it straightened out and most people just say screw it and file bankruptcy and that sucks too...I just try to do my best to prevent myself from getting screwed up again is all...we all end up paying for everyone else's bks and cc fraud in the by higher prices and interest rates and fees

You dont have to worry about Slysoft. Many of us have been doing business with them for what like 10+ years and never seen any problems.
To each their own though. They are not some fly by night shady chinese/inidian/russian company setup yesterday which is asking for your credit card info-they have been established and trusted for a long time.

You might consider getting yourself a card that allows you to setup virtual numbers for purchases such as these. At least with some of them, you can set the virtual numbers up for one time use and with a limit on how large the charge can be.

We will. It may not be identical, but we will have a ten foot interface this year.

With JRiver's JRemote app for iOS and Android, browsing in Theater View is becoming less common since they use the phone or tablet as the UI.
The Android version of JRemote is available now for testing. It's not complete, but it is useable.

Jim, I'd like to see JRemote for the PC too; that would allow using a Windows tablet as a remote for an HTPC to select media and control playback. Using TheaterView on a Windows tablet (Tremote?) is almost there, but after launching a video, it's a pain to access the transport controls like pause, stop, volume etc. JRemote does the touch interface really well.

Quick question, what is JRivers competition?


Some product must be more stable and more importantly offer support not links to tedious Winki verbiage.

What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.

I downloaded JRiver on my windows laptop and use that as the remote. It's fine when i's not being temperamental, it's just that it's the full program you have to download.

Have you tried Media Center Remote Control Web Application? It is like JRemote for any web browser.

I answered twice in this thread:

You have a problem with Oppos that come and go. Maybe it's an MC problem, but I don't recognize it.

Try the most recent version of MC if you haven't. It's here:
http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=96272.0

Try updating your firmware.

Try powering all devices on your network off and back on.

So the Oppo is the problem.

Listen, I am gonna back off this because I am furious but I will say before I shut up, throwing links at people with copious verbiage is less than helpful.

BTW, I did (and am forced to most everyday, not all) and after an hour the 105 appeared.

He gave you three things to try, only one of which involved the Oppo.

There are several reasons others have had trouble with an Oppo and JRiver:
1. Antivirus rules were sometimes preventing access to the Oppo via the router/firewall.
2. The Oppo's network renderer function was not correctly configured.
3. The Oppo's standby mode was set to Energy Efficient (default) instead of Quick Start. It can only be detected as a DLNA device when in Quick Start mode. See page 75 of the Oppo manual.

Since the Oppo is both a DMP (Digital Media Player) and a DMR (Digital Media Render) it can both pull content from JRiver or allow JRiver to push content to it. Have you tested pulling content (DMP) from JRiver with the Oppo?

I may have a chance on Saturday to test with an Oppo BDP-105.

Don't think the router firewall is singling out JRiver, blocking and unblocking it and finding an Oppo 103 (which does not exist) on occasion. But anything is possible, what would be the solution if this unlikely scenario is occurring?

again, if not properly configured why does it work wonderful 60-65% of the time?

I'll address the Oppo stand by mode as you suggest, thanks.

"Since the Oppo is both a DMP (Digital Media Player) and a DMR (Digital Media Render) it can both pull content from JRiver or allow JRiver to push content to it. Have you tested pulling content (DMP) from JRiver with the Oppo?:

I think the answer is yes, I can find the audiophile Dac folder (jriver) and play music that way. No art, no tags...

"I may have a chance on Saturday to test with an Oppo BDP-105" If you are near north NYC suburbs stop by. I can guarantee a fine meal, good wine, after drinks...

Looks great, desertdome!

I am going to install it. I would still prefer a Theater View with easy access to playback controls though. That is, after all, what Tremote was all about, no?
Having to create views for WebGizmo compared to being able to use one's already-configured TheaterView views is a bit of an obstacle.

Is there a download for the Web page control? I have some issues with it seeing my Directstream and oppo sometimes also but if I reset the unpnp server on my Directstream it makes them both show up. ...usually it just takes about 3 minutes for all my renderer's to be listed...my only complaint is that it drops out alot and jumps around a song while playing
