Re: How often does Netflix crash?`

well to Netflix's credit they do usually make it up to you. I've had 4 movies within the last year get lost in the mail and they sent me extra movies when it happened. And once when they were off line by me they gave me a price break for that month. I doubt they're going to do anything for you if yo...

ZZzzz...boring. Time to put a 'lock' on this forum issue. By the way, on issue of reselling cars...they are not a copyright issue. If you're bored please try another thread. There's plenty of them. No one is violating any rules to warrant a lock up. Some of us are enjoying this thread. And everyone...

Re: dead roku box (the risk of cheap electronics)

The last time I went to Radio Shack was to get a soldering iron to repair a Grandsons DSLite.No one in the store had a clue what I needed or how to use it,as I had learned from watching a YouTube video I was hoping for some info on it first hand.They did not even know what "Flux" was.The ...

Re: dead roku box (the risk of cheap electronics)

will a 5V 1A power supply work?? Maybe, but probably not for long. It really needs to be 2.5amps. The problem is its not easy to find. My Radio Shack didn't have it on hand. And those that do have it went a ton money for it. Its best to order a spare when you order your roku and save the shipping c...

Re: Voting For The Greatest Sci-Fi Movie

I think I'd have to put my vote in for Until The End Of The World . Incredible movie. Even more incredible soundtrack. I recently was made aware of this movie while reading a review of another movie, Code 46 , which recently became available on Netflix and is pretty good by the way. Unfortunately, ...

Re: Setup to Record?

Making a personal back-up copy of content you own is considered fair use. Interesting read. But this line bothered me. QUOTE Fair use is decided by a judge, on a case by case basis, after balancing the four factors listed in section 107 of the Copyright statute. UNQUOTE The average guy doesn't stan...

Re: Setup to Record?

Recording streaming copyrighted material is illegal. It's the same as taking a rental DVD from Blockbuster and making a copy of it. You're paying to rent it, not own it. If you BUY the DVD, you are allowed by law to back it up if you'd like. With a monthly Netflix RENTAL membership, you are not ent...

Re: Setup to Record?

you haven't bought any of the content on the Roku. You are essentially paying for unlimited rentals. I didn't buy those tv shows back in the 80's i d/l to my VCR either but i LEGALLY had a right to copy them. That law that allowed me to do that should apply to anything i can d/l off my tv. what you...

Re: Setup to Record?

It all depends on context. You are certainly aware that you can't walk into a theater and start recording the movie playing there, and yet that was 'content you had paid for', right? Even in VCR days, there was plenty of examples of un-copyable content. Commercial VHS tapes and premium cable channe...

Re: Setup to Record?

No, you can't legally record streaming content from the box. It's copy protected. Roku's forum isn't the appropriate place to discuss illegal methods. I wasn't aware that recording content I'd paid for was illegal. This was never an issue when I had a VCR back in the day. There never would have bee...

Re: AT&T to implement DSL caps

VI- I for one suspect those who are "way under" aren't reading the data the same way as the carriers will either. Every packet is counted as well as all the acks and pings associated. It doesn't take a lot of video to get over that. People have crunched the numbers to different results bu...
