    Version: Orb 2.01.0026

    Pros

    Works well, most of the time.

    Cons

    Can be flaky, especially after windows updates.

    Summary

    I've been an Orb user for years. I used to stream to my laptop. Now I stream live tv and video from my home PCs (I have two accounts) to my ipod touch with OrbLive installed ($9.99 in the app store). Overall, I love this service. It is cheaper than the alternative of buying fancy hardware and waiting for software to become available for the iphone/touch (eg. Slingbox). It is flaky. I have issues every four or five weeks where my program will no longer launch on my PCs, my program guide disappears etc. I usually have to do a complete uninstall and then download the latest version of the software and reinstall. Sometime it is days before I can get things to work. You get what you pay for (nothing to $9.99 to install app on iphone/touch). But overall, Orb is a great service and they always seem to get things straightened out within a matter of days when there are issues.
