Yes... http:// and the IP address of the SoundBridge should always do the trick.
Alas, the Roku user manual isn't very clear on this point. But it does walk through adding an UPnP icon to "My Network Places" (Windows) on p.38.....which I guess makes sense as by default, most people will be assigning the SB address with DHCP, so it may change from time to time.
You can also telnet to it using the IP address and port 4444 for doing things like manual network setup or assigning the unit a static IP address.
Maxtor 500GB USB->Linksys NSLU2 Unslung->Firefly svn-1696 * M1000->Onkyo TXSR502->Boston Acoustics front, Audiosource surrounds and sub * M500->Klipsch ProMedia 2.1
To find the IP address of your SoundBridge, press the Ã¢â‚¬ËœhomeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ button on the remote-control, Now use the down-arrow to then select "Change Library or Configuration", Use down-arrow to then select the "System Configuration" menu and, (depending upon your chosen method of connecting your SoundBridge), choose either Ã¢â‚¬ËœShow Wi-Fi StatusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ or Ã¢â‚¬ËœShow Wired Ethernet StatusÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, and there you'll see the IP address.
No matter if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got a PC or a MAC, these details are explained in the SoundBridge User's Guide.
That little bit of info on how to find the Soundbridge IP address is invaluable. Far better than the 'hit and miss' methods that I've used before.
As for "jtse's" use of Telnet and port numbers, this is an area that I personally tread with trepidation, as I am not familiar enough with such technical spheres. However, I have printed this info out for future reference as the 'Manual for Soundbridge' could be a bit more informative.
I hope that the powers that be at Roku can take a hint from this comment.
