What are the chances of an HD1000 app being created to mimic the Roku Netflix box? My guess is this is possible but I wouldn't even know where to begin.
Not very good. The HD1000 doesn't even have enough horsepower to decode standard AVIs. I can't imagine it'd come anywhere close to being able to decode MPEG-4 (which I believe is what Netflix streaming uses).
I would think the only way to even come close would be to have a NetFlix front end on the HD1000 (much like mPlay) where all the work is done on your PC/Server and it transcodes from WMA to MPEG and that is comeing from an electroincs tech, not a code writer, so The Endless may say, "nice idea, too bad it can't work). For $99, I would say get the box.
Just my 2-cents worth, Matt
Now don't get me wrong, i would love it, but much like people wanting RadioRoku on the HD1000, the HD1000 can't do java.
Roku3 and Roku HD1000 [Rev B] on a Samsung HLP5674W DLP in the living room; a Roku2 and two Roku XS and a few SoundBridges.Win7; Kubuntu and XP via RT-N66U, E2000 and a switch or two. I own stock in Roku, it's just all in the form of hardware.Viva la Roku
