Default how many people use ORB to watch tv on your blackberry pearl..have a question..

Please Login to Remove!

i use ORB to watch tv on my pearl, which is awesome. is there a way to have the video play using the entire screen or have the video play in landscape mode. the video i get when using orb is very small and doesnt take up the entire screen. is there a setting im missing or another video player that is better?

I know this isn't an answer for you, but I actually have a question involving orb as well. I actually tried using it: audio, video whatever and i keep getting error messages, this is using the hotspot browser and opera mini. Any ideas?

Might sound crazy, but what is ORB? Never heard of it. Can someone provide a link also?

I didn't know what it was either until I started looking for it. You can find it @ orb.com

I've done this as well, and AFAIK, there isn't any setting to get it full screen...

How do you get it to view tv? When I connect it says unsupported media type?

Thanks!

ORB is a program that connects your PC to a server and your phone to that server (your account) and then you can upload stuff from your comp and use in other comps or your PDA BB device...

i dont recomend ORB its very "buggy" for most people and hard to use.. also why not jsut use Sprint TV, or Vcast, if you just stick with youtube.. and that y i love sprints version of the8130 it has Sprint TV and it has Satelite Radio.. so Sprint 8130= Awesomeness
