RokuMartin, thanks. I was kind of hoping that Roku might provide some form of running count, eventually. But guestimate looks the way to go.
Robby, "So you can watch about 4 movies a day, and still have bandwith leftover for heavy surfing and music downloading. "
Actually, currently the Roku is set up against my roommate's TV, because his doesn't have all the computer, AppleTV, et all attachments mine has. So while he's watching the 4 dot movies, I'm watching movies downloaded from iTunes, or the HD content over at Hulu, CBS, ABC, Joost, etc.
Once upon a time, we couldn't imagine needing over 1GB of hard drive space, or memory over 64k. Never forget the Henry Ford quote, "If I had asked my customers what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse." Innovation is based not on what the average person wants now, but on what people don't know they want, until they see it. A bandwidth cap is the equivalent of a speed limit set based on what a fast horse can run in Ford's time--which would have limited the development of the car rather quickly.
I guess I have a hard time understanding what exactly a "bandwidth hog" is. Some people would say I am, just because I get most of my entertainment from the Internet.
Anyway, thanks for the info RokuMartin.
