Often a viewing starts in HD and rebffers with only 4 or 3 dots, depending on factors unknown. Assumed higher usage times definitly affect results. Looking at the post and the ad for ROKU 2, I assume it has a much larger buffering capacity. I wouldn't mind starting a view and waiting for the program to buffer up before beginning to watch. Would ROKU 2 help this problem (w or w/o extra memory installed) and allow me to always watch 1080p HD when available? Thanks for any expert advice!

I was wondering why, if the buffer is huge, it wouldn't "store" the program so that you could watch with guaranteed HD. That would be a huge selling feature and propel ROKU and NEtflix into major selling point at any connection speed. My Satellite box does it on a hard drive. With ROKU 2 why didn't they get with it?
My ancient ROKU box does rebuffer and drop quality at the same time.

I have an 8gb one I am not using and it sounds like that would be just fine. If it could take up to a 16gb then the next time I hit a sale, I'll probabloy just stick one in then. Thanks as usual for all of the great information I get here.
