Re: FM Group and TV's and Libraries

We found 24" TCL Roku TV's (Roku built-in the TV) for $99 over the holidays. Replacing the cord on the TV with a 12' version ($6 on Amazon) makes it very easy to use anywhere. We also found 55" TCL Roku TV's for $380. The 24" TV's are easy to carry without a cart for smaller classes. ...

Re: USB Flash setup for Come Follow Me videos on Roku Player

The 250/20 speed is what was required to get an install with the rather small provider in one case - they told us the sum of the 24 month contracted price plus the install fe...

Not sure if it matters but I'm using a library from http://paulwhiting.github.io/GospelLibr ... ry_rss.xml
