5.1 depends on the content provider. 1080i (or other resolutions) do not. That's all Roku right there. I was surprised to see so many users with HDTVs that can't view 720p, but there seems to be a significant number so I think it's something Roku should update. As for commercials, I'd rather have s...

I also would love to have 1080 support added to the mix....Not real sure why it was left out to begin with :? Presumably because all the people happily using the 720p output would have been pissed if they had to wait for 1080. Which I feel they wouldn't have to of waited if Roku had started out wit...

I think standard DSL has maximum download capacity of 768 Kb/s .... not fast enough for excellent quality video streaming. Standard cable ISP's generally provide download speeds up to about 8000 Kb/s (8 Mb/s)... although you can get less or more depending on what you are willing to pay. there's no ...

I had it during beta on a few episodes of tv shows. If you can reproduce it, put it in the sticky thread for Report All Movie and Audio sync Problems.

This little phenom happened to me last evening. Both TVs' on-screen messages were saying the Roku devices had been deactivated but, when I logged onto Netflix it was not showing them as being deactivated. Regardless, I had to deactivate both devices and enter new activation codes to get them to wor...

Judging from the other threads on this subject, I would be willing to wager that netflix is having some problems.

A device that is untested before sent to the consumer is a sign of poor operations. Not good. EDIT: BTW, I suggest you not take posts so personally. Sounds like you back this company deeply, and that's respectable, but to direct negative comments towards me because of my opinion is foolish. Well, s...

So you got a bad device. Big Deal. Return it and get a working one. It happens. You can get over yourself now. Working in the IT field, you should know just how likely batch problems can arise in products. Obviously, from your report alone the player is a great player as your parents love it. Coming...

480p is considered "HD" by most in the world of online streaming websites. The Fox.com site technology is adaptive and could be 480p or could be more. It changes as you watch if connection speed varies. Hulu offers 480p for most current shows. 720p for select shows. I'd rather have 480p i...

To be honest, if you want the best quality, 1.5 or 1.6mb connection is not going to be enough. There is overhead during a movie that can require much more than that, Even up to close to double the connection. On a big screen tv, 2 dot quality will look like crap. 3 dot will be passable but 4 dot is ...

Re: 720p on Sony's KV-40XBR800

The information on my tv says..the KV-40XBR800, like most HDTVs, converts incoming 720p signals to 1080i. When I select HD on the Roku I get the squigles and lines. Shouldn't I be able to receive HD from Roku on my TV?


If your not getting a picture then your tv does not upscale to 1080i.
