I would only be guessing if I answered. Have you searched on the Miro forums? 
My one little tidbit of knowledge on java 1.6 comes from another app we use 
with Windows. It's called Linktivity, and it's a web-meeting server - allows 
people to log in, share audio and video, their desktops and things like that, 
in a multi-point environment. Their tech support strongly discourages Java 
1.6 saying it's got features that are not backwardly compatible - we have 
gotten a couple of clients working after reverting their Java version. But, 
this is pretty flimsy evidence for you to work on, and I wouldn't base much 
on it. I suppose if it were me, knowing this, I might be willing to use an 
earlier version of Sun Java to see - it's not that hard to switch if you can 
find an earlier version. As for using the built-in version of Java, I can't 
see what it would hurt to try. Stanton Finley has some references on his site 
to commands you can use to direct your system which version of Java to use.
