If it doesn't work, keep beating it with the hammer till it does.

There goes the neighborhood. Now when a new user says that their Roku won't work we'll have to ask three additional questions, 1) Did you buy it at Wal-Mart (and if answer is "yes") 2) Have you plugged it in? (and if the answer is "yes") 3) Does your trailer have working electricity?

Peace

That is true but many of the regular "Walmart" customers don't know how to use either. :twisted:

My experience is that Walmart attracts a lot of the lower end of the intelligence spectrum. That is why I almost never shop there. I have found that their prices can almost always be equaled or beaten by looking on the internet or shopping around just a bit.

As far as people that buy their Roku at Walmart there are several ch that will need to be added. One instructional ch that would be of huge value to them: "Housebreaking the adult male."

Wow...with some of the comments here...all I can say is... LMBO. I looked at the site and the first review on it was almost a month ago. I can't believe the staff at Roku held this in. Great job Roku guys and gals. This is just proof to non-believers that you guys are going to be around for awhile. :D

I am not lover of Walmart, but sometimes it's like the bathroom: when you gotta go, you gotta go.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

From October 2010 -

The launch of the NTV250 marks the first Roku device that's going be made readily available in brick-and-mortar store shelves across the U.S., according to a Roku spokesperson. The device will be offered at Best Buy, Wal-Mart, and several other places.
