    My first guess was that it's the app, because that largely accounts for the fact that streaming works so much better on my Windows device. OTOH, if nearly everyone had a legion of problems with the botched GB rollout, then presumably that has a little to do with it. At least, that's what I thought, but since I completed the rollback I haven't noticed much improvement.

    Also, upgrading the SD card is a great idea. It sounds like you're really into broadcasts and music. You will appreciate the extra storage space, the ability to use a better quality encoder for your media, and can relax knowing your data is in a better container.
    I'm not grokking you. You mean my 16Gb card isn't enough to hold my music collection plus a smaller quantity of podcasts that I tend to swap in and out, and to support streaming? My HTC's SD card is only 4G and that's almost filled. I could go up one more notch, to a 32Gb card, but I don't see how that's going to fix this.

    Patriot. That's all I'm gonna say. Also, if you root and tinker, you will appreciate having some more storage space for a few nandroid backups; just one of those can take around 300MB!

    haha.. I suppose I inferred from the situation and some of the posts that you were still using the lame-o stock card that came with the Optimus S. 2GB is not much at all if you start pulling media and doing backups, that's all I was getting at.

    No worries, I can see how you might have inferred that.

    Now that I've had a chance to use the phone I can say that its performance after the version downgrade and root has improved greatly. And I haven't really "used" the rooted condition that much except to install a couple of maintenance/cleanup aps that require root access for full functionality. I also upgraded to TuneIn Radio Pro, which may also have helped.

    So thanks again to everyone!

    To be honest.. From what I've seen so far Froyo is the best, and most functional that I've used so far. Reborn rom was great. I had a few problems, but gingerbread is total crap! The zvj sucks as well so far. I'm not happy!
