1-- 1.5 is the minimum but you may see some re-buffering on hi-def should be good on standard definition tho
2-- I have my rokus hooked up wirlessly but if it is easy to do wired is always better (you will have to get a higher end unit for that tho)
3---I recommend an antenna while nowhereman (a great private developer here) offers feeds from station streams by request (he is quite accommodating like that) if your local channel doesn't offer streams or limited access stuff on their website then you will be out of luck getting it on roku
4-- the LT is a great basic unit it costs 49.99 but only does wireless -- no gaming
5-- The private channels are wonderful -- you can get a good idea from this very good content site
she can save you a few bucks on your unit if you order through her link too.
Now about discovery--roku doesn't work like your direct tv with specific channels it works by content so while you can find much of the discovery channels type of programs you wont find a discovery channel
My favorite channel is the private channel Justin TV (TheEndless another great developer here provides it as a private channel) I find a lot of the science nature stuff on there but if your looking for a certain show you may or may not find it and definitely not "every saturday at nine" like it is on the actual discovery channel you are used to
hope this helps --me I wouldn't trade my roku for all the "cable channels" out there but thats just me.
