So I stopped trying to get help on here. Glad to see I am not crazy. I did a factory reset and that helped a bit. Also, I noticed if I start a video, then stop it and back out, then go right back in, it helps the issues of you guys are talking about and stops it defaulting to a low quality.
ALSO, since the firmware update, Fox News podcasts just keep looping and looping. I checked their format and it is mp4 just like cnn and msnbc, but only fox podcast is affected. I thought ROKU said there was going to be a fix very soon but I have not seen anything posted recently. I am having to use my Sony Blu-ray player to watch these which is a pain. I also tried streaming the podcasts through Chaneru thinking it would work with the locally downloaded file in my itunes, but it loops as well. So, there is something squirrelly in the firmware. I get tired of watching cnn, msnbc, and then having to turn on my blu-ray to watch fox.

Just an important clarification: Netflix working OK on other devices in the same network is NOT an indication that the problem is necessarily with the Roku. Netflix and other content providers uses different CDNs for different viewing platforms - this means that an Xbox, Playstation, computer browser, Roku, etc. each get physically different streams even when accessing the same title.
