I thought it would be interesting to see what kind internet connection people have. Let everyone know the quality of your connection too.

Up to a couple weeks ago I only had DSL 1.5....we got 2 dots and the picture was watchable on our set, kinda looked same as watching dishnetwork and we never had any problems (I also surfed the internet via laptop while watching tv). We have had the roku box since its release and even at 1.5 we were VERY Happy with it.

Now I have DSL runng about 10. Picture is great but there are some movies that look horrible which I suspect isn't because of my connection but netflix. Oh getting 4 dots on all movies now but occasionally a few movies will get 2-3.

Luckily, from reading about all the complaints about the box, I have had no real problems with the box! We LOVE IT!~!

I love my little ROKU box. We have a ATT and get about 2.1 when I run the tests on my connection. We primarily get 4 dots and sometime 3. Never HD but oh well....
