Re: My box is having serious problems...

I just removed a bunch of channels the other day. I found that I wasn't really using them.

Re: My box is having serious problems...

I would call Roku and have them send me another box. There is no reason your box should reboot that much. Sounds like a hardware issue anyway. I would have Roku TS swap the box or just send the box back and get your money back.

Re: Google TV & Boxee Box....

If people are going to start throwing the price difference around, remember that we're already seeing bundling options with services, like DISH. First, you'd be stuck with DISH, which sucks. Second, even at the bundled price it's 3x the cost of the Roku XD and almost twice the cost of the XDS or Ap...

Re: Apple TV just got a lot more interesting

I'd hack it just because I could. I don't like being locked into only doing what my consumer electronics were intended for. If there was a way to hack the Roku to make it do something different I would. Just for the sake of doing it and seeing what else it can be made to do. Has nothing to do with ...

Re: When will the new models be available on Amazon?

It is trolling, it doesn't take a genius to figure out what you are doing. You are in a support forum for a product, and asking such a ridiculous question can not be construed any other way. Particularly when you look at your past posts. So philsoft, who are you? Where do you fit in here? Are you a...

Re: When will the new models be available on Amazon?

As an Amazon Prime user it doesn't make much sense to buy directly from the Roku when I save $10 for the standard shipping or $15 for the 2 day shipping Amazon gives me for free. Any word on when they'll have it in stock? I'm curious to why you want to buy a Roku anyway :?: To give you something to...
