Roku LT vs Roku HD

Sun Mar 11, 2012 4:15 pm

I've read about the different between the Roku LT vs Roku HD. I get that the LT lacks the Bluetooth and expandable memory slot.

I don't need Bluetooth.

Do I really need the expandable memory slot? I would only really care about the box holding enough channels.
How many channels can the LT hold?

Thanks!

Plenty. The card is mostly used in case you have a lot of games, which are larger than channels. You don't need the memory slot.

Also note that the LT only does 720p. The HD is 1080p if that matters to you.

This is not true. Roku LT and HD can only do 720p as per the Roku Products page on roku.com. In addition, the Roku HD has an "Expandable memory slot plus Bluetooth" which gives you the ability to utilize an RF remote (sold separately) and play Angry Birds type gaming which the Roku LT does not support. So the major difference between the two is the ability for an RF remote, expandable memory and Bluetooth gaming that the HD provides.

I'm pretty sure every Roku device can use the RF remotes.

Nope, every Roku (so far) can do IR. RF(specifically Bluetooth) is only available on the Roku 2 HD, XD, and XS.

IR = Infrared = Light outside of the visible (to humans) spectrum = Roku has to be positioned so that it can 'see' the signal coming from your remote
Bluetooth = RF = radio frequency = electromagnetic waves = Roku can be positioned within a container or behind walls or other objects and still receive a usable remote signal.

I mistyped. I meant IR.
