    This probably means that "official" support is right around the corner.

    Thanks for the update. If you replace the old file back video recording will work. I never record so I hadn't noticed. Anyone else come across issues please post below.

    It tells me that I can't edit or move it because it is read only.
    I am using Root Explorer, with root... superuser permission....
    What gives?

    @ the top of root explorer click 'Mount R/W' so it reads 'Mount R/O' then you can edit.

    Not sure if netflix streams out side the US. But for streaming only it costs $7.99/month.

    Streaming is currently only available in the US & Canada. Netflix announced they will be expanding to 43 countries in 2012.
