When is started up, the bar quality did not say HD. The picture went from blurry to medium grade, but still not HD. When switch to the old Roku box, the quality bar says HD and the picture is great. So, there's still a problem.

Roku2 just provides the technology to utilize it. It's also the same technology that lets us get our DD+ and subtitles on Roku. If Netflix decides to change the tech, I am sure Roku will adapt with it whether it's releasing channel software/firmware updates or Roku3. Hulu Plus seems to have adaptive streaming down, granted it crashes a lot of set top devices, but at least the quality is good to start with.

... and they only re-buffer down, never back up like adaptive streams do.You might like the results that you get using the old non-adaptive-bit-rate Roku Netflix player but those players don't have access to the 1080p encodes, 5.1 sound or closed captions.
