Is it normal for this kind of app to use 90MB of RAM and 110MB of Virtual RAM? That is more than Dock, Finder and Dropbox.

Interesting, lupinglade is listed here as the developer yet he/she is able to submit reviews (5 star no less) for MediaLink, another Nullriver product. Also, the most recent 2 (5 star) reviews for Connect 360 both have very similar names and according to their review histories have only "reviewed" Connect360 and MediaLink (both Nullriver products) And 3 5 star reviews for both nullriver products all with nothing written save for perfect 5-star ratings all posted on December 6th? Isn't there a developer blacklist for fake reviews to drum up the star rating? I took a look at this version and it's as cumbersome as the previous version. I'm still trying to find what's different. FYI, playback does what Media Link and Connect 360 do for less than the price of 1 Nullriver product.

In the past, I've had a few technical issues with the app, but it eventually worked out. What I find frustrating is why did I need to pay 40.00 total for two apps to get the same functionality as Playback? Moreover, Playback is cheaper than Connect 360 and Medialink. Also, Yazsoft customer service is great. They are quick, helpful and COURTEOUS! Uhmm Nullriver is...hmmm let's say cold and abbreviated. if I wasn't so invested in Nullriver (Yes, I own their PSP app too.) I would switch. Perhaps, I should of bought Playback instead of the second copy of SD5..Hmm... Anyway, it won't hurt to test Playback. I'm curious to see how it performs. Also, I do find your allegations about the developer writing positive reviews disconcerting. I hope this is false.

Lupinglade: I didn't see your previous comment about re-installing, but this version (3.4.3) seems to have sorted everything out. Thanks!

Their first update in years and all it does is fix a bug with another one of THEIR OWN PRODUCTS? Playback lets you stream to PS3 and Xbox without buying two programs. Playback lets you repackage MKV's to play. Playback does so many more things than this POS program and it's cheaper. Save from relaunching this product using Playback's source code and giving me money, there is no update that would make Connect360 (or media link) worth switching back to.

I've found Playback to be problematic at keeping its server up. So I switched to MediaTomb and all is well. No offense to the Playback people (It's most likely my weird setup). I used Connect360 (when my 360 wasn't dead) and it worked quite well. YMMV, of course.

@ FENRISULF: Please email me ay playback at yazsoft dot com if you're having any issues with Playback. I would find it very surprising that the Playback Server is the cause of trouble on your setup. If you can provide some info, I'd be happy to help. Playback is designed and developed with the most reliable, efficient, and speed performing streaming engine. There's not one shred of messy code in there. Further its continuously tested on a daily basis to ensure it stays that way. Johnny

Reverted to previous version. 3.4.2 killed all playback of movies. Luckily it was very easy to revert to older release, which still works fine.

For me, the new version (3.4.2) won't begin to share media at all; I click the "Start" button, it says it's starting up and the button changes to "Stop", and then a second or two later the button switches back to "Start" again. I reverted to the previous version and all is working as usual again.

Bingley Joe: Can you try reinstalling it and see if it works then? We've tested on this configuration with no issues. Its possible the file was not properly downloaded/unzipped. If the problem persists, can you please send the console log output when trying to start Connect360 to zigzag ( a t ) nullriver ( d o t ) com

Same problem here. Did a clean install instead of upgrade in place to 3.42 and now it never starts serving anything. GREAT! Go to start and it either just sits there or goes back to disabled.

Has Nullriver abandon the future development of this 'preference pan' app? I switched to Playback. Nullriver has a nice lil app here. I was suckered into purchasing this one fro ma friend. Go with Playback if you want the best out there for streaming content to your Xbox 360. I's been to years since Nullriver did anything on this. They shouldn't be taking people's money if they are gonna sell a two year old app.

Fantastic little program, incredibly easy to use. Just set up your XBox network and install the software on your mac. Only issue I can see is I'm not sure it is seeing my modified images. I spent weeks trying to get my iphone G to work with various cables and my Samsung TV. I even bought the MAC AV component. Using this software with the Xbox made it much easier.
