PocketIE 8.12 (or6?) and ORB - Resolution Problem

Question regarding Orb and the new Pocket IE (6 or 8.12?)

Just flashed to Juicy's latest rom (6)

In my attempts to stream my tv shows from home to my touch pro at work via pocket IE and TCPMP/Coreplayer (or wmp) I noticed orb has begun detecting my phone as being a desktop-like resolution (on both desktop and mobile view settings). It does load the mobile interface in the browser, but when the media player opens, the native streaming resolution orb is feeding me is about 1024x768 (which coreplayer and tcpmp do NOT scale efficiently on the touch pro, I get about 4fps). I was getting streamed 320x240 before, and it played perfect and looked great.

on the MOBILE view setting, whatismyuseragent.com returns:

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows CE; IEMobile 8.12; MSIEMobile 6.0)

I have tried all the old ways of changing the user agent to make it more like the old pocket ie, and it appears I can change ELEMENTS of it (specifically, compatible; MSIE6.O; AND Windows CE), however, after many hours of looking, I cannot find any way of modifying the last two values of the string:

IEMobile 8.12; MSIEMobile 6.0)

If anyone has any insight on how to drop and/or alter these values I would really appreciate it. I would even be willing to install a second copy of the old pocket IE if thats even possible )I doubt it)

Also, before someone else suggests it, yes I have tried kinoma and while I do like it, it apparently doesnt support TV out, and only the pay version will allow you to seek/fast forward. (Which I wouldnt mind paying for...IF it did TV Out)

Again guys, thanks for your help in advance and keep up the good work Juicy!
