Orb_logo Wow, I almost missed an update to one of my favorite free apps, Orb! Version 1.01.0671 hit the web late last week and offers some welcome enhancements:

  • New FileBrowser Add-On: access all file types on your Orb PC!
  • Fix for Orb.exe crashes in WS2_32.dll and Wshtcpip.dll
  • Orb IR: fix for channel changing only once; fix for ADS driver crash; improved detection of STB remotes
  • Improved support for non-MPEG2 tuners: TV streaming in 3GP; fix for recordings never ending; fix for webcam conflict
  • Improved support for DVB-T tuning and Orb channel scan (non-US)
  • New OrbStreamer: fix cut-off of few seconds of audio files in beginning of stream
  • Restore MCE services after releasing the tuner: fix conflict where MCE never recovered if used while Orb was accessing the tuner
  • Improved streaming experience for phones and PDA by implementing better profiles

How about it, do we have any folks "Orb’ing" media to their mobile devices or is it just me? I find the software invaluable when I’m on the go and I love how they keep extending the services: voice mail, remote webcam viewing and now remote file browsing for example.
