It would appear that 33,412 people have already reviewed the Roku2 HD.

That doesn't seem possible as it was only announced yesterday.


I don't think so either....must be for current models, not the Roku2.

Re: Streaming Bible

"Streaming Bible" would be a good name for the Roku, as every time I check the new channels in the channel store I see channel after channel of religious nonsense. Religious nonsense? Hmmm... may be time to look to the market for another streaming player. Religion is in the lives of many ...

There is an option, buy the top end model.


I understand that...just shouldn't have to buy the top end model to have ethernet capability. I really don't believe many other users will share your opinion of that option.

Re: Some Roku 2 Info

I still find it hard to believe there will be no ethernet option. I hope the two Rokus I currently own don't break. Wireless is fine and all for devices which move around but if it stays put I want it wired! They would not do anything that would break the ethernet ports on existing models. And I be...

Re: Netflix just raised their prices

Upon hearing the news, I have dropped my plan to streaming-only. Sure, I gave away 2 more months of DVDs but it is worth it to send a message to the capitalists at Netflix. If a company wants to play market-maneuvering games with me, My invisible hand moves swiftly. I am not sure why they feel thei...

I posted this in yesterday's NASA thread, but it got buried pretty quickly by debate... :P If anyone is interested, I've published a private channel that provides a higher quality stream than the official NASA channel and NowhereTV are currently using: https://owner.roku.com/add/ENDLESSNASA Why tha...

I added the new FOX NEWS channel from the channel store but none of its videos will play. I power-cycled my Roku unit to see if that would fix the problem, but it did not. Is anyone else having this problem with the new FOX NEWS channel?

Re: Watch final NASA Space Shuttle launch live on Roku (7/8/

I know this will not be a popular position to take and I am not trying to start a flame war but I am glad to be rid of the Space Shuttle. It has been only a marginal success. Originally it was supposed to launch almost weekly. It proved to be way too fragile. The cost of each launch skyrocketed, dr...
