      Can someone give me more information on what a TV Tuner card actually is, like is it an actual physical card that you'd buy from radio shack, or is it a downloadable thing?

      tv card are either usb or pci or come already on ur videocard (tons of ati cards comes wit it, mines does) and it allows to connect a videosource to ur pc to watch it in or pc over a variety of programs. there pretty cheap too(well the cheaps at least, u can get hdtv one too but those are 100$ plus), u can find em as low as $40.

      and no u dont media player center. i dont have it

      and its a media center serve, u dont have to have tv to use it. u have it play music, internet radio and ur own videos also pics. but tv is the best feature =)

      when it says orb error got ur pc and goto orb.com and update ur pc version of orb. thats it

      Alright, thanks. So are TV tuners easy to set up, like do i just have to plug it into my USB port, and Orb automatically detects it?

      orb has been around for years, this isnt an exclusive thing just for the iphone,

      im not even sure if the program we are running on our phone is from orb, and it does not look like orb has any plans on supporting osx (sorry)

      awesome application... been waiting for something like this for a while now. I usually stream XM radio to my phone during the day at work (with uXM and Orb), only problem was that I was tying up safari.

      With this App, you can browse the web in safari AND listen live... huge thumbs up to the creator of it, great work

      if the ONLY thing you want to do it stream live TV, then yes.

      Can someone give me more information on what a TV Tuner card actually is, like is it an actual physical card that you'd buy from radio shack, or is it a downloadable thing?

      for some reason it doesnt recognize any info from my tagged m4a music (prevously mp3, then converted with itunes )

      Am i doing something wrong or isn't it possible to turn the phone to get it fullscreen!?

      If that would be possible, it'll be my #1 app :-)


      Adding playlists (i only have m3u from winamp) is easy...

      just open the configuration panel of orb on your pc, and add the folder with the playlist in it.

      After that it will appear under playlists in orb on your phone and in the web interface on mycast.orb.com.

      ok so this program has completely screwed up my volume, and now no matter if i use this or the ipod i can barley hear anything at max volume, and i mean barley nothing at all, and to top it off my service is going crazy when it was fine before this, id like to say its unrelated but i havent had any problems up until i was trying to stream shows from my house so i dunno

      yeah my phone is definatly acting unresponsive and extremely slow, where it was flawless before this (which makes me want to scream) just a head up

      god my ringer volume everything is so low now, dammit all to hell

      Same here. I have a Hauppauge PVR-150 PCI TV card. I also couldn't configure the remote in the Orb setup -- I might be doing something wrong here, I don't know. I press and hold "0" but nothing ever happens...
