Re: Okay, This Has Gotten Ridiculous

No problem. Sorry I can't be of more assistance. I would say it is worth a try to switch back to your ISP dns. Although opendns tries to get the closest route to you it isn't always successful. Still the difference shouldn't be so huge as to stick you with 2 dot quality on a 6 Meg connection. I have...

Re: FINALLY DITCHED HULU+

And while we are at it, anyone else notice a raft of posts starting out with "I am STUPID", or "I know this is a STUPID question" or the similar. I remember back in school being told that the only 'STUPID' question is the one not asked. But I mite add to that..........Not resear...

Re: Okay, This Has Gotten Ridiculous

The two dot quality issue sounds a lot like insufficient bandwidth. What type of internet do you have? Have you tried a speedtest? In some cases opendns can make the streaming speed worse because it has more jumps to reach your machine than the local dns provided by your isp. Are you or others in yo...

Re: Netflix 3.0 - Why are other STBs surpassing Roku?

Roku is supposed to be the best netflix box. who said that besides some the rubes on this forum and the suspender wearing CEO? if i remember the story correctly, netflix was developing a streaming box in house but then decided to dump it on roku with their support to make the hardware to test the w...

Re: Netflix 3.0 - Why are other STBs surpassing Roku?

Ok, I changed the title to be more relevant to the topic at hand. To answer a couple of questions... @senorgregster, For me at least the ability to browse A LOT more content without having to go to my computer is a huge step forward. I also prefer the layout and functionality. Being able to "ho...

Re: Netflix 3.0

How is the new Netflix on the WD? I have a Live Plus and I saw there was a new firmware update but my WD is boxed up gathering dust lol. I was never really thrilled with the NF access prior.... I'm really happy with it personally. It offers a lot more content to browse through and the user interfac...

Netflix 3.0 - Why are other STBs surpassing Roku?

So, I have been becoming increasingly disenchanted with my Roku vs. some of my other devices and the inclusion of Netflix 3.0 on my WDTV Live Hub isn't helping the issue any. Roku is supposed to be the best netflix box. Whenever someone starts complaining about a lack of other interesting content th...

Re: [Upcoming Channel] Netflix users needed for beta testing

I can't wait for this. I don't even know what it is but it sounds exciting. I am hoping it is some sort of site scraper for instantwatcher that will let you load directly to netflix. That might be wishful thinking though.

Re: Firmware update v2.9 build 1553

The near silence about the many suggestions for improved functionality doesn't do much to comfort anyone especially when the updates are hardly noticeable. Every week, I send out a weekly report on the top issues, top threads and problems, as well as feature suggestions. I know they are getting rea...

Re: Firmware update v2.9 build 1553

Please refrain from making such broad statements, vmps. There are lots of Roku users who may not be English-speaking natives. Just a mild warning. Thanks, C. Shawn Smith Shawn I think he was being sarcastic in regards to the statement complaining about the foreign language channels Another reason w...

Re: Firmware update v2.9 build 1553

It isn't a knock against the Roku...but there is plenty of room for improvement. Anyone that doesn't see that is wearing rose colored glasses. The hardware will become stale pretty quickly if peoples suggestions for improvement aren't considered. I don't expect miracles but a major release with some...

Hopefully that is a joke. There are a lot of good movies in the Miramax selection.

Re: Firmware update v2.9 build 1553

I guess I'm spoiled from other devices but it seems slow going getting any new or improved features on the Roku. It would be cool if we could get a list of planned features so we know if there is something to look forward to in the future.
