MyMedia works fine without an internet connection, as long as your local network is up and running.
... So the best way to auto-launch a hidden version of python is to rename mymedia.py to mymedia.pyw, and create a shortcut to it in the startup folder.
And I have one support request. When you purchase iTunes music nowdays it is in unprotected .m4a format (which is actually just an AAC audio-only mp4 file). I verified this morning that Roku USB Media Player recognizes the .m4a extension and plays it correctly from a USB stick (including parsing the album/artist info), so this is a native Roku playback format (i.e. no need for transcoding because Roku natively supports AAC). It would be awesome if MyMedia would recognize .m4a file extension (it currently rejects them). Hopefully this is a configuration change somewhere?
