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.

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.

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.

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.

Playback blows this out of the water. It works with xbox and ps3, and actually integrates the faces technology from iphoto, works without issues with multiple connected and wi-fi drives and recognizes more formats. And it's 25% cheaper. As I said earlier in one of my previous posts, I was once a happy connect 360 customer. 2+ years of no development? FAIL Anyone want a connect360 license?

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.

A once happy customer, I'm now thoroughly disgusted by Nullriver's lack of support for this program. This program has been out for how long now? And still doesn't work with folders? Absolutely ridiculous. This program needs a massive update, and fast. $20 for a mediocre program that does a half assed job might be OK for an early release when no one else offers an alternative, but when it's years later and the program has undergone no significant development, something's very wrong.

Just a note, I haven't had any problems with NXE and Connect360. Works fine as always. Again, I must say if you haven't bought Connect 360, you're better off buying Rivet as they actually seem to care about their software.

Will the new Xbox update break Connect360? Has anybody tried? I'm quite hesitant to upgrade.

STILL no support for folders in folders or multiple locations? I made the plunge for Connect360 right before Rivet was released and since then have been a bit unsatisfied with my purchase. Yes, it still plays the files but the unorganization of it all is killing me (Not to mention that the vast majority of my movies are stored on an external hard drive). Nullriver took about 3 months to pump out another version and it is barely an upgrade, just a few tweaks. If they can't keep up with Rivet I'll have to switch but hopefully it won't come to that.

Still no support for folders within folders. Unbelievable. Why would I want my music and movie library scanned at a maximum of every two hours? How often do you think we add movies/music to our libraries. Off or manual rescan is needed.

I want to play back movies form an external dedicated hard drive. Connect360 does not seem to allow this, it will only play back movies that are stored on the internal drive of my iMac. Is there a way to play back movies from an external drive, or am I out of luck on this one. BTW, I have emailed this question to the developer about half a dozen times. They do not seem to be all to interested to respond and support their software, since I have not received a response from them.
