Had Roku for a few days now and like most things, as familiarity increases , so do the questions. I have the Roku HDMI feeding into a Sony A/V Receiver and HDMI out to the TV.
Roku HDMI direct to TV was disappointing, in terms of Picture quality and the receiver appears to help.
Only sound I get is Linear PCM, even though in settings, the Roku is set to 5.1.
The Quality "dot" Indicator shows Four dots, no matter what's streamed from Netflix always four dots. What's the Maximum number " in a perfect world" ?
I guess my question is : Am I really streaming HD ?, does not look like HD. It is watchable though. TV says it's 720p display,(even though Box is set for 1080p) and TV and receiver are both 1080i and 1080P capable.
At night, all equipment is switched off . Roku is left plugged in and red light visible (no off switch). Next day the only way to get Roku awake and working is to pull out the power cord connector and reseat it (boot the box ).
Download speed from cable is a consistant 20+ Mbps.
Any Roku experts like to chime in with a little input and info. , would really appreciate it.
