Some time back, I wrote about the broken streaming experience with Windows Media Player 10 on Windows Mobile 5.0 devices but since end of September - right before I flew to Seattle for the MVP Summit - it worked with Orb and my just before I left ROM-updated HTC Universal again. Since this day, I've used Orb quite regular again with my Universal (via UMTS or W-LAN). However, I never was sure it it was because of the ROM update or what changed anyway.

Last night I got the answer from Debbie D. of Orb Networks, when she wrote me the following E-Mail:

Just checking in to make sure Orb and Windows Mobile 5.0 are working OK for you now. We updated Orb at the end of Sept to work better with WM 5.0 - "so far so good" is what I've been hearing from our support team.

Ok, so Orb's update was the reason, not the ROM update. Good to know that Orb should works with all Windows Mobile 5.0 devices again now, thanks to the software update from Orb. Always appreciated if a company continues to improve its own software or fixes faults of others (in this case Microsoft who has broken the Media Player 10 streaming experience, for which reason ever).

Cheers ~ Arne
