Q: Sometimes when I'm navigating between feeds, I get a message saying "Connection timed out", what's wrong?

A: The developer (facanferff) is aware of this issue and apparently the reason is a bug with the Showtime itself, for now when it happens just go back and try again, it should then work

Yes, I was. I wonder if the Ps3 will ever have naything as good as XBMC was on the original xbox. Those were the days.

Yes, but I don't see how that helps native PS3 playback. I assume you're talking about transcoding.

This is a welcome addition to the homebrew library. Would it be possible to add support for a codecs folder (ala XBMC)? Anyway, thanks andoma!

low res mkv files will work but more optimisation is needed before it's a real alternative to the inbuilt video player. great work in progress though.
