    Hey...so I've been using orb for my cellphone. it works really well but heres the thing. You can set it up to work with your 360. GREAT I thought. that'll be AWESOME!

    no wait...it still runs the same quality and resolution that it'll stream to your phone!

    anybody know how to fix this? its really bad looking...streaming over local area networks shouldnt be this pathetic

    Does Orb show any upload/download speed in the inteface when using the Xbox?

    Err, how do you use it on the Xbox? Just go to the website like you would if using a PC (log in, etc.)? I don't know what is involved in "You can set it up to work with your 360."

    its automatic. you run orb and it shows up as a computer on your xbox 360. its pretty nifty. the only problem is that it transcodes for cellphones so it SUCKS on a big screen.

    Yeah, it's supposed to automatically determine the quality to use based on the measured bandwidth. But if you're not using the web interface, maybe that doesn't work.

    Maybe it's "remembering" the last quality it used? Can you try streaming to a PC, make sure the quality's good, then try the Xbox again? Maybe it'll "remember" the quality it used for the PC streaming.

    its really cool if you have unlimited internet plans for your phones because you can basically carry around your entire video and music collection with you.
