    thats the same problem I am having too, I can't figure out why, orb even sees a thumbnail of all my videos, but it won't play them for some reason.

    a lot of times, when the app closes immediately, permissions are not set correctly on the app folder. SSh back into the phone and make sure your permissions are 0755 I think and check the box that says recursively or something like that.

    wolfnumba1, i think i made some progress, it seems like maybe we do not have the codecs to decode the video, go to www.orb.com/codecs to get the decoders. I downloaded them and installed, but still having the same issue so far.....

    Default help please
    I just bought a pinnacle pctv usb tv tuner card. i have about 12 channels that i can pick up on my laptop. how do i get it to sync with orb? when i check the tv window in orb it just states that i need a tv tuner. it doesn't even know it's there. do i need to change a setting in orb for it to read my tv tuner? if so, where would i need to change this?

    thanks in advance.

    I setup Orb and the uXM program. After 5 minutes I'm listening to O&A on my iPhone. This rules!

    This PINNACLE PCTV USB TV TUNER is not compatible with ORB. Bought it 2 days, went crazy with it, but no hope. I just found out by installing my old messed up ATI TV TUNER and worked like a charm, only the picture is crappy because the card is broken.. Return it and get WinTV one, should be about the same price!

    I love this app it is great working with sirius. Over the last few days I've been testing edge, which if you have full service it seems to hold the stream. However, when moving the stream isnt as reliable.

    Try open ORB on iphone, click setting (the last icon at the bottom), click exit, then open ORB again, I think it should solve the problem.. It worked for me.

    I'm having problems with a Pinnacle Tuner also. I've wasted so much time on the thing.

    It's going back today and I'm picking up a WinTV.

    I hate to keep pestering, but this is my 4th request and no one has attempted to help me!

    I don't have live tv yet, i'm trying to get this to play my movie files from my PC.
    I can see the thumbnail in Orb on my phone, so I'm close, but when I click it, it takes a couple minutes of "connecting" then it says it failed to play file.

    WHY?

    OP, where u at??????????

    Did you try click exit in orb, or click connect again in orb to refresh orb? This trick solved my problems every time. Its just a missed connection i guess.. If not work, try uninstall then reinstall orb.. Hope this help..

    I exchanged for a USB WinTV-HVR 850 today, same problem like Pinnacle.. I guess I have to exchange it for an internal card. The WinTV USB is very slow and lousy on my 3GHz Windows Vista, 2GBs Ram machine... Beware

    What is the point of this application for the iphone? If it wifi based, then there is no real value....If I am at home I will watch a TV. I suppose If I am somewhere where I can get WIFI free it might be nice....but where I might want to remotely watch TV...there is generally no WIFI.

    Perhaps under 3g this might be good. Otherwise, a sligbox and a laptop are better for this.

    I picked up a Win-TV 1600. Absolutely beautiful. Everything is working great now.

    Actually this is quite useful. Let say youre in the class or library and bored the hell out of you, take out the iphone, and watch some tv, since school provide free wi-fi!

    Is anyone else getting a green picture when they access the webcam on their iPhone? I've tried looking in the settings menus for a fix, but I can't find anything. Thanks.
