Forums Friday: Apple TV, Rockbox, Jakpod, Music Recs

This week in the iLounge Discussion Forums: Thinking about buying an Apple TV or iPod-ready speakers? We’ve just expanded our In-Home Solutions forum to include everything from Apple TV to all iPod speakers and other In-Home accessories. You can take a peek at the new forum, Apple TV, Speakers & In-Home Solutions today.

Continuing a discussion started back in 2006, readers are still talking about Rockbox, an alternate firmware for the iPod and other music players that enables certain features not found in Apple’s iPod Software, including new audio formats, graphic equalizers, menu themes, fonts, and lots of games. For experienced users only – and then, ones with certain model iPods – Rockbox continues to evolve on a daily basis.

Need a way to transfer files from iPod to computer, or from iPod to iPod? One iLounge reader has posted news about his new free program – compatible even with Windows Vista – called Jakpod. Take a look at the screenshots and details in the discussion thread.

Finally, iLounge forum members have for years been exchanging music suggestions and recommendations. If you’re looking for a new band – or advice on finding a hard-to-locate song from an old favorite – check out the music forum and its recommendations sub-forum!
