Please don't "dumb down" Roku Media Player. There was a new version installed for a short time...

Yesterday, I opened the Roku Media Player channel. I could tell right way that a new version had been released. It did look/feel pretty good, but it definitely had some issues I didn't like so I hit the updated button and it reverted back to the old Roku Media Player (whew).

1. Please don't remove track information. I think folks who run their own media servers care about whether or not an audio track is 128/256kbps, or FLAC, etc.. I saw in the new version of RMP, media info is removed completely. Please bring this back for the new version. If anything, I want more info being displayed about my media, certainly not less.

2. The folder structure was somehow only being displayed in the far right column. I tried changing display menus for everything, but there was a blank column on the left with everything else being crammed on the right side.

I am not sure why the new version was only available for such a short time, but I glad I have the old version still. If you are tying to clean up the interface by removing items, please have advanced options so more information can be displayed.

Thank you!

RMP version 5 gave people fits when it hit the streets yesterday -- especially those attempting to play files from a USB stick on Roku models that support this. The forums practically blew up over this as soon as people started trying to use the new version. Roku pulled version 5 back out last evening and reverted to the previous version.
