Re: Roku Box and Tivo conflicting?

Anyone having problems with Tivo and the Roku Netflix box interfering with each other? I just got my own Roku box today, and every time I have both on the wireless signal drops out on one or both of them. Right now I have the Tivo wireless adapter unplugged and the Roku box is working fine. That su...

Re: one more time

thanks, wideasleep, for your explanation. I understand what you are saying. It seems no one understands what I was saying which is: I have a very very good firewall program that is set up to tell me about any attempt to connect to the internet. It will show me that Cox at DNS1 and DNS2 is being con...

If you have a harmony remote, It already knows the netflix player. Just enter in model N1000 and all of its functions besides home is in there and you could add that to it if you wanted to.

Wireless is a problem but not with roku but with all wireless. It is less then stellar technology and can be affected by a wide range of things causing different problems for your devices. Instead of checking your internet speed you should see how good your wireless is in your bedroom. If you notice...

Its not...

The Netflix player doesn't have a display... you would need to have the TV on to control it, and would you really want to have the TV on while you're listening to music? The nice thing about the Soundbridge is that it's just another audio component sitting there with all your other stereo equipment...
