Re: Roku 3 creates wifi hotspot that conflicts w/my router

So if I understand this correctly, the WIFI hotspot conflict can be resolved by using a wired Ethernet connection?

Also, I plan on using a universal IR remote, and never activating the Roku remote. Will this also alleviate the problem?

Check out the new Western Digital WD TV Live. It does everything the Roku did plus more all for only $120 at Best Buy.

And the unit is only 5x5x2 inches and has no noisy fans!

I have spoken to LG technical support and they have assured me that their new player will indeed stream photo and music files from your pc to your entertainment system. However, in order to stream Netflix videos to your tv, you need at least a transfer rate of 1.5 MPS, so DSL users may have marginal...

And of course it p...

Agreed! While the Photobridge was initially ahead of its time and not well marketed or understood, the time is now ripe for a floodgate of users out there to get their hands on this device. All the new devices of late, like the Linksys DMA2200, rely on Windows Vista to operate, but most of us still ...

Icepack - If I'm reading your message correctly, does your vendor have access to new PhotoBridges? And, are they Rev B?

I'd like to get my hands on one if he does!

Thanks, Matt, for the detailed explanation. Doesn't ROKU now realize that the time has finally come for a need for this device? All they have to do is re-introduce the HD1000 and, with the proper marketing, they would fly off the shelves! Meanwhile, it looks like the hole in my equipment rack will r...

So if the Photobridge was so good, then the obvious question is why did Roku discontinue it and why hasn't anyone else come up with something better? When my power supply died last April, I sold my unit before it was widely known a third party was providing reliable repairs. At the time, the talk wa...

HD1000 Rev B with dead power supply for sale

Another HD1000, Rev B bites the dust. Perfect in all respects, except for the power supply. For sale with remote and original box.

I decided it's not worth repairing, as newer technology is now coming out.

The unit is 16 months old and is cosmetically flawless.

Zargon,

I don't quite follow your thoughts. If I am trying to stream music and photos from my PC to my TV, then wouldn't it be necessary to have the computer tuned on?
