Re: What keeps you from cutting the cord?

If I could get about 10 channels the cable company would never see me ever again. I already ditched the cable, and am not going to do anything as far as adding "premium" television to my house until I can do it in a way that does not force me to pay $50 for the few channels I watch. I wen...

Re: Thinking of buying!

For more money (around $75), you could get a wifi extender.. It's just like a wifi router or access point, except its sole purpose is to talk to other wireless routers/access points on the network, and give you wireless where you might not be able to normally.. Or you could go with an in-power Ethe...

Re: YouTube & Pay-Per-View Movies

YouTube has offered PPV indie movies in the past and the results were lackluster, the average YouTube watcher is 16 and doesn't have a credit card. I wish YouTube well but their PPV service is too late to the game, Amazon VOD et al have the advantage. I doubt if it is too late in the game. After al...

Re: Comcast Usage Meter - Closing in on 250GB limit

Anyone exceed, bounce off or come even close to the Comcast 250GB residential usage? I've had Netflix here for almost a month and now see my usage is at about 75% of the 250GB allowed cap. :shock: In the past, I would have said there's no way I'll come close but now I'm not so sure about that. Appa...

Re: 6.2 build 693?

It may be beneficial or offer some type of clue among Roku boxes if everyone with an issue posted their box stats? For example: Roku SD, HD or HD-XR or for those more technical models respectively: N1050, N1100 and N1101. You missed one, the N1000, the original box, which is what I have. Function i...

Re: 6.2 build 693?

I have the same problem. After build 693 I can no longer use wireless. I can no longer see any wireless networks when it is supposed to scan for them and there is no option to select "not shown". When I try and push enter and then the up arrow the Roku resets. I have 2 Roku boxes and it h...

Re: b693 Update Killed 2 Roku Boxes??

This wouldn't be the first time I heard of an update causing issues with the WiFi portion of the box. I'd suggest connecting it directly to your router via a wired RJ-45 and testing it to rule the WiFi as a non-issue. One other person posted issues with their WiFi here and could only get it to work ...

NFL.com has a Preseason Live service and a Game Rewind service that I'd love to see channels for if deals and proper encodings could be worked out.


I'd even take that as an option, but they should have some type of offer.

NFL.TV and/or NCAA.TV?

I love to see a NFL or NCAA TV channel similar to what's offered for the MLB.TV. Does anyone have some insight in the future possibilites of such a channel? How about even something like ESPN 360/ESPN3? Those type of channels would put the Roku in field of it's own. I would even consider dropping my...

Nothing in particular, but rather what others consider or recommend as must have channels.
