    I have tried it and it works good. Just create an account and set it up in ten minutes total and you have your media everywhere you have internet connection.

    Don't be shy if I helped you use the Thanks button, I do it.

    Has anyone tried this over the Edge network at all? Or will this only work over wi-fi?

    I installed the app but need to go home to upgrade my orb version on the PC. The app on iphone warns you that you arent on a WIFI connection and that the quality will be lower. So its seems it will run on edge.

    For the live TV I think you also need windows media center on your computer too.

    Just out of curiousity,,,,,why do you need the software,,, " windows media center " to make it to work. I thought you just needed:

    (1) Windows XP/Vista
    (2) Download Orb software
    (3) A working TV Tuner for your computer.

    Do you really need that windows media center program. When I think about it,,,,,I guess the orb program may use the "program guide" feature built into the windows media center program,,but I'm not sure.

    Is that the reason?,,,for the program guide feature.

    If yes,,,,then does it also utilize any other features from the windows media center program,,,or is it strickly the program guide feature.

    Just curious,,,if anyone knows.....

    hey i got it to work but when i tried to watch something, this comes out
    Error
    Orb PC version not supported. You need to upgrade your PC to Orb version 2.01.0012 or higher for iOrb to work.

    Any ideas?

    Just discovered that the program doesn't disable auto lock function, so before using the program, we have to turn autolock off
