by "buffer" are you talking about a particular size?
I'm not following- doesn't ANYTHING that streams buffer some amount of data to deal with network hiccups or the like?
So if youtube and netflix (that both buffer- they even give messages sometimes about 'buffering')- why would the need for a buffer in streambaby matter?
somewhere I even though someone posted it will have 2GB memory with some amount (after deducting for the OS install) available to buffer. But i suppose i may have misread.
And again to deal with network hiccups wouldn't even premiere to mini streaming even need some amount of buffer?
Is it that streambaby builds a really large buffer that would be more than the (something less than) 2 GB available?
(I suspect it wont work either but more because Tivo wont bother completing the software to allow most 3rd party apps to work- rather than a lack of buffer).
