I am perfectly content with 720p and was wondering if there are any other reasons why I should not bother with 1080p (e.g. slower downloads, other possible tech issues, etc.)? Also, is it true that the resolution you set your roku to determines the resolution of downloaded content in each respective channel? Thanks.
1080p--is it worth it? Not for me.
There is not a lot of 1080p content and my old eyes do not really see much, if any, difference.
The setting of your Roku does not really effect what the channels provide. Most channels, other than the biggies like Netflix, Amazon etc. do not even get to 720p much of the time.
Actually resolution matters a good deal less than download speed. Once you get to a rate that smoothly supports 720p the rest matters very little.
Everything I normally watch supports 1080p but I set my Roku at 720p and see almost no difference.
