It may ... until you have to replace your bedroom TV.
When I purchased my Roku Netflix Box (which is what it was originally called), I didn't have a TV that could do HD. That changed a month ago when my main TV died. I'm glad the Roku Netflix Box does HD because it seems to work great with my new TV! So far, though, I had watched only two HD streams: "The Wizard of Oz" and "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead". The detail for the 3.4Mbps stream is fantastic!
But then, seriously, I did have it in the back of my mind three years ago that when that TV died, I'd go into the modern TV age.

I was wondering if anyone has information regarding whether there are any specs changes at all between the old box and the new model. If so I would consider using my 30-day guarantee to get the HD.
