Lightbulb ORB and Nokia N80

Hi to all,
Can someone please clarify this before i start going into a rage about this potentially wonderfull bit of software.

Does the media present on your pc have to be in real video and real audio formats to play correctly on the n80?, or does it get transcoded regardless?

If the second statement is true then i keep getting 'disconected.Try connecting again?' message. I have followed the advice regarding setting real player to your current wifi connection and the test orb streams (video and audio) work fine. The tools option is set to real player and 3gp

I am currently on orange (uk) and my firmware rev is v3.0614.0.3
I am using a netgear router if thats any help

Somebody please help!!

HI, did that work for you, it just looks a bit scarey??

I too have the same the firmware version, the test streams work and I can view pictures. It also streams in 3gp, but the quality is crap.....

I am pulling my hair out and the phone will very soon make contact with the wall, so any help will be greatly appreciated....

Thanks in advance......

Make sure you have latest firmware

and in real player settings you have to first set the access point, you have to do this everytime you are using a new access point, dont ask me why .. its just the way it is.
