I think I can get to like this thing. I'm not as smart as I used to be, but given time I think I can come to grips with using the basics at least.
To anyone wondering, give it a shot. I think you'll like it too.
Unfortunately, I only have a 2.16GHz iMac, and I think a faster Mac would do it more justice and make it easier to use.
There's a bit of a learning curve. Where you fall off depends on how many brain cells you have left.
Yes, it can be a bit daunting and confusing at first, and there are some delays whilst it's going through your folders. Unfortunately I jumped into the deep end by throwing a 500GB drive full of movies at it, and was wondering what was happening, so I left it overnight, and by morning it was all sorted. (I think!)
Anyway, looks like fun and so handy to be able to use the Remote Control or Mouse.

Cheers all.

... actually, don't worry about my previous request.
I'm going to upgrade my plan instead.

Cheers all.
[Version 2.5]

Thank you sooo much for the update, and so fast too, BUT, could you possibly add the following plan please?

Super Fast Standard ADSL2+ 55GB
consists of peak download 30GB (9:00am-1:00am)
and offpeak download 25GB (1:00am-9:00am)

It was only out a very short while before it again got updated.

Thanks heaps.

I was hoping to try this, being with TPG, but it doesn't work.
I think it may have something to do with the latest plan changes.
Is there any chance this might be fixed?

Sorry to re-post, but if everyone could include what sort of Mac setup they have, as well as their good, or bad, observations, I'm sure everyone (especially the developers), would find that most helpful in trying to evaluate their comments.

Downloads fine, and fast. Just got it myself. Read carefully the pages in front of you as they open up, take the necessary actions as directed and you'll be fine.
Unfortunately, anyone with an OpenGL unfriendly PowerBook G4 500, like me, don't bother. It won't work. It's too OpenGL intensive and as such just locks everything up while trying to do constant re-draws.
This may be fixed in coming releases, but I doubt it. We just don't have the graphic capability. :-(

I love it, but, I wish it had Channel 31 listings as well.

Bobbysdad had trouble on 23 Mar 2011
I'm having problems getting this to work.
(10.5.8 on a 800MHz iBook.)
I get the following:
bobbys-ibook-g4:~ bobby$ /Applications/ACLr8 ; exit;
env: python: No such file or directory
I know it's not much to go on, but does anyone have any clues, please?
