I thought that ROKU HD would improve (speed up) the almost constant interruptions to the streaming movies from Netflix. Because of the interruptions, I must wait and wait and wait for the movie to continue running. A movie lasting 90 minutes in a movie theater requires me to watch Netflix for approximately 120 to 165 minutes. Is there any possible way to overcome this problem? Is there some way I could connect my laptop to my television (with various cables that accompanied my Roku HD) that would make it possible for me to avoid the long, long delays that occur with the Netflix wireless movies?
How fast is your internet? The only thing I can see the Roku helping with is if the issues you're having have to do with old, slow hardware. But it sounds like you might be fighting a internet or network bottleneck instead.
