    When I download the HomePod Mac Audio Server, and then double-click Homepod.pkg, I get the following error message:

    The Installer package "Homepod" cannot be opened. The postflight script was either not executable or not readable.

    I tried downloading from both the macsense and gloolabs URLs. I am running Mac OS 10.3.7.

    Gloonet worked pretty well for me... Took me a minute to configure it, the documentation and U/I were a bit lacking. Ran across a big or two as well, but that's to be expected in BETA- no problem.

    I picked up the PocketTunes Deluxe (trial) and was able to jam my mp3's from the road, which is great. I spent $10 at Radio Shack for a 3/32"::1/8" adapter and a 6ft stereo cord and plugged my 650 into my AUX port on the car stereo- sounds great, although I might tweak the bitrate a little to see if I can improve the quality.

    Unfortunately, since streaming the audio in PocketTunes ties up the antenna, all incoming calls are routed right to voicemail with no indication. Which, alas, will prevent the Gloonet + PocketTunes combo from being my mobile MP3 solution. Now that I think of it, though, RealPlayer handles incoming calls perfectly- If only it handled streaming audio... I wonder if the PocketTunes developers would consider a similar feature.

    If you're listening to a mp3 off your sd card in pocket-tunes, like you have to with realplayer, incoming calls come in just fine (music stops and you get a ring). Like you say, though, streaming audio ties up the radio, so incoming calls go yo voicemail. This would be true even if it were realplayer handling the streaming audio, assuming they ever added the capability...

    [QUOTE=technologic]Gloonet looks great, but there's a big problem for me: the electricity bill. I can't justify keeping my desktop on all the time while I'm away from home just so that I can stream music off of it. Especially when I keep about half the space on my 1GB SD card dedicated to WMA files.

    But in most instances you SAVE money just keeping the computer ON.
    Its more power draw turning it on/off all the time.

    Not necessarily. If you're gonna leave your computer for more than 30 minutes, idle, it's better to turn it off.

    Most of us leave home in the morning and come back in the evening...in that case, it's more cost effective to turn your computer off than leave it on all day.

    Hi Guys
    Got this thing up and running and though the potential is very cool the audio server is somewhat lacking. I get continuous 'skipping' on the tracks where I think packets are being dropped. How was other users experience? Thanks

    Edit:
    Practically useless in PTunes, constantly buffering for small amounts of audio skip. Any ideas?
    I just discovered if I open the playlist with Win Media Player (on desktop) it works perfectly. However I prefer the iTunes (but skips!) becuase it shows me the song titles and is my default. Anyone know how to fix this? Im thinking its the buffering somewhere. Thanks guys...

    I live outside of Chicago, but have lots of friends and family there. I want to stream some Chicago's AM and FM stations but they do not have streaming available on their sites.

    Can I somehow get this to work with GlooNet and maybe PC tuner on cpu in Chicago ... and then onto the internet so I can listen to them here ... how would I get this to work?

    Ideas?

    This looks great - have there been any Macintosh developments? I tried the link but was only able to see downloads for something called the HomePod.

    There hasn't been a lot of talk lately for how cool this product sounds (at least until Real and others get with the program and start offering streaming on demand to devices like the Treo).

    I listen to WSL Chicago via ptunes daily. Did you search for Chicago in http://www.live-radio.net ?

    mac update? there is a big hole in the mac market for this right now. it can be accomplished right now, but is not easy, even for me, and i consider myself at least an advanced user.

    Is the Gloonet server even still working? If so, any 'advanced' Mac users have tips for getting it to work? Would love to know your secret!

    You keep WMA files on your SD card? What do you use to play them? I have a TREO 650 and am looking for something (hopefully free) that can play WMA files.
    Thanks... Doc

    Okay, this gloonet is pissin' me off.

    I installed the software on my computer, I have the server running, but when I go to connection manager I sign in with my login info and the 'connect' button is disabled while the 'disconnect' button is enabled yet it says 'status: not connected'. Does this not make sense to anyone else? If I'm not connected then the connect button should be enabled.
    I go to login at the website and I get this...
    'A connection to the GlooNet Desktop could not be established. Launch the GlooNet Desktop and click on Connection Manager to confirm that you are successfully connected to the GlooNet Service.
    'If your GlooNet Desktop is connected, please wait two minutes for it to renew its connection to the GlooNet service or restart the connection manually.'

    Totally lost.

    Would something like this work with Sirius's on-line streaming channels?
