I am the owner of a Roku Soundbridge (M1000) and can confirm that DAAP 
serving through mfd does not work with this unit. The main issue appears 
to be that the Soundbridge requires support for DAAP queries which 
currently seems to be unimplemented in mfd. (Another issue seems to be 
regarding HTTP version incompability where the SB uses HTTP1.0 in DAAP 
requests which gets dropped by mfd). I have been meaning to look deeper 
into this whenever I've got more time.

The only DAAP server implementation I have seen which has full 
browse/query support is mt-daapd (hosted at sourceforge), this however 
seems to lack some of the features that mfd has (real-time conversion to 
wav, FLAC support etc).

I'd be happy to provide more info (logs, network traces) if anyone's
