For those of you with the iHome900, does the box come to you activated when delivered, or do you email someone to activate it? Also how to you renew your subscription and do you have to pay for the entire year, or is it monthly?

I'd like to see some better fansubs for old series actually. I downloaded a batch torrent of Dai Sensei Onizuka (GTO) and I felt my head bursts into flames as I watched it with the subs included.

Hey everyone,

For those who're using Niji show, there's an update to the application now that allows it to display correctly on your Widescreen displays. No need to do the VLC trick to fix the aspect ratio.

Grab it here:
