Re: New Roku 2 XS - first few seconds are very bad quality

Are you kidding me I'll take a couple of seconds of blur for uninterrupted playback any day I hated buffering in the middle of a show like I had with a Sony N100 or on my computer. If show interrupting buffering continued being the norm I'd skip streaming all together smartest thing Roku did was get...

Re: Remote not working? Roku 2 XS

I just got the 1.99 wonder remote and for the first time since I bought into the Roku experience months ago my XS 2's respond immediately when given a command you know like they should have done from the frigging get go. IMO the "gaming" remote is junk.

Re: An Interesting Take on Netflix' Latest Move

I see the split into completely separate companies as a next move by Netflix to eventually sell off or shut down the DVD division and become a streaming only service, that's no secret. As far as the apology goes I'll take it with a grain of salt.

Re: Roku 2 Video Too Dark

This too dark video and low audio is frustrating hopefully in short order Roku will come up with a fix, I'm switching back to my Wii for Netflix watching in the mean time.

Re: Roku, thank you :)

Yes thanks Roku for the XS2 this is my first streaming outside of Netflix with a Wii and I'm enjoying it with a nice mix of channels that seems to get bigger everyday, so nice to have more choices I wasn't that sure I'd use the USB port but find I do for movies and photos. I may not be the generatio...

Re: Roku2 XS versus Sony Streaming Media Player smp-n100

I tried the Sony but returned it because of constant buffering it did have some nice features especially connectivity choices I did not like the menu layout or limited channels. I returned it and bought the XS2 which once connected stays connected and I like much more. I'm sure Sony will release a n...

Re: My Thanks to those who recommended a different DSL Modem

I also use an Actiontec G router supplied by my phone company to me years ago I've had zero issues connecting to or staying connected to either of my roku 2's signal strength is always excellent on both units.
