As others have stated. Roku box is delivering in 720p for HD. Your tv does not support 720p. Please make sure to add yourself to the sticky thread for the 1080i discussion. The more we can get in there, the better chance we can force roku to fix their box. As for 480p, it is close to dvd quality and...

A friend of mine had this problem on his xbox. It turned out his profile on the netflix server was corrupt. He had to call netflix and they rebuilt his profile and everything worked fine after that. You may want to contact netflix and inform them what is going on and that your profile may be having ...

You can have up to 4 netflix ready devices. Depending on how your netflix account is setup, determines how many can be playing at the same time. It all depends on how many movies you are receiving on dvd. 1 at a time means only 1 device can be used at a time, 2 at a time is 2 devices... all the way ...

I just called Roku and talked to one of their Techs...we tried everything from ethernet directly into box, resets of varying length, unplugging several times in different configurations and tried every ...

I don't see how. The 1.5 update clearly enables HD from NetFlix, and the Roku cannot buffer HD from NetFlix effectively. Either way you look at it, the 1.5 update caused the current issue. To say that Roku is not responsible for ensuring that their ONE business partner is delivering streams adequat...

no, I am not using the wireless option.... The DNS problems stop if I either unplug the power or unplug the cat5 cable. my older netgear router doesn't having any options I can change for the RTS. The question is why is the roku box doing anything on the network when it's not playing any movies. Al...

I am assuming your running wireless if your unhooking the power cable. Have you tried changing your RTS on your router to under 1024? I found on my router, setting it to around 512 worked great for me and has not hindered my connection at all. This cleared up the roku from flooding my router with pa...

Thanks all. Unfortunately, I will have to buy the component cables. I have a whole bunch of composite cables lying around, but now component cables. I like the idea of the switch, but really don't like the extra box. And there seems to be so many choices out there when it comes to different switche...

Thank You all for your responses, However I'm still a little unclear as to what connects to what. My TV has optical, S video and HDMI connections My Home Theater reciever has optical and S video as well as RCA sockets etc, but no HDMI Looks like the Roku has everything. So, what gets hooked up to w...

Oddly enough, I've seen many TVs which will work only with 480i/p and 1080i, but I've *never* seen a TV that works only at 480i/p and 720p. Does anyone have a TV that will NOT work at 1080i? Then why on Earth did Roku choose 720p? Hate to say it, but the Roku box is off my "recommended" l...
