    yea...I did the same and you can view all your files but no adding files yet and can't download any files (even simple pics or docs) you have uploaded....

    but by golly you can delete anything you want!!

    I have not added my Q9H to the ring yet but I like the remote control from one PC to the others.

    I dig this software.. I'm constantly putting some of my work files in there and sometimes I take extra long lunches where I need access to them..this works out quite well.

    Of course I dont put anything mission critical in there.. just forms and what not.

    I've been using Mesh for a while now. It's one of sites on my links page that I made for the sliding panels homescreen.
    I prefer to keep my cab files on my sd card but I use mesh to upload files from work and I grab them later on the phone.
    Looking forward to the dedicated app.

    oh, i thought orb also allowed doc downloads to other devices. I use orb mostly for streaming my mp3s to my Q9c so i don't have to waste SD space on Mp3s. it works very well although WMP can be a little annoying as has been discussed in many threads. I like the storing cab idea.

    i think orb is strickly audio/video
    where as mesh is any file...but more of a storage thing
    you cant acutally install from or run mp3s directly from it...you would have to download it to your Q or PC and then be able to use the files

    with Orb you can also access all files on your home pc, from a remote location... via the web.

    yeah i tried zadesktop, and ultravnc and just couldn't get my brain to make them work. orb was simple and i loved that it also let me stream media to my Wii so now i can watch movies and listen to music from my pc on my main TV.it saves all kinds of time and image quality not having to convert video and burn dvds.
