My wireless laptop gets 54Mbps in the area of my Roku player, yet the player rebuffers ~4 times every movie (and this is only when I force the connection to a measly 2 dot quality). I invested in a NetGear Powerline adapter (another $130 @ BBuy) to hardwire the player to my router (> 85Mbs). Even after setting Roku to wired (from wireless) connectivity (and of course forcing it to use 4 dot quality), the darn Roku Player still rebuffers 4 times during a movie. Arrgghh! I cannot believe my 1.5+ Kb/s Time Warner Business internet connection does not have enough bandwidth to download these movies and pass it on to my Roku Player? I have emailed roku on how to send it back before my 30 days are up. I am at $230 and the thing still does not work for me.

After entering Debug and playing a movie, the first movie said: "Cannot play 1.0 mbps movie on 0.5 mbps connection". Really strange connection speed given all the testing I Completed above?
Then I could not get the darn message to appear again no matter how many times I tried. Then all of the sudden, after about the 8th time clicking debug ON and playing a different movie I got the debug message again. This time is said something like "playing 2.2mbps movie on 6.9mbps connection". Really strange considering I did nothing different?
Enter Debug Mode [Home] 5 times +[Rew] 3 times + [FF] 2times (NOTE: REW & FF are the bottom rows of keys). Select Enable DEBUG, then go back and play a movie.
