Any thoughts or suggestions.
You could install flashable froyo .67. Install adobe flash, and then open the streams from a web browser. This should work. I'll test it out to confirm.
Update: Works! Install orb classic 2.50 on your pc, and also ffdshow audio decoder. Set up orb on your desktop. Go to mycast.orb.com on your Nook browser, go to settings and select stream format. Choose "flash." If you have an hdtv tuner installed on you desktop, go to program guide at the mycast.com page on your Nook, select your channel and voila, tv to go. Stay away from the orblive junk. I don't even know why they released that garbage. Adjust bit rate of stream as needed in the mycast.orb webpage on your Nook. Tested using Dolphin Mini.
PS: Saved video files also work.
