So...does this take the place of a Smart TV (looking at LG LS 5700) augment a Smart TV, or not necessary if you already have a Smart TV? Thanks Jun 28, 2012
Yes :) The Roku is pretty much the "smart" pulled out of a "smart" TV. The advantages in my mind to a Roku over a smart tv (or their built in system) is that the Roku is updated much more frequently (with bug fixes, new channels, etc) than most smart TV interfaces and, in my experience, the Roku is much easier to use than most smart TV interfaces.
I used only Netflix and found the audio quality excellent. I would think that it is not channel specific.
.On the setup of the Roku, I enter my router password, and Roku recognizes my router, but won't connect, like it won't recognize my password. Anybody? Jan 4, 2013
We are having the same problem...I'll let you know if I figure out the problem.
When I unplug this thing to connect it to another TV - can I expect any problems (long bootup time, device resets, or re-entering Netflix account)? Mar 13, 2013
I have unplugged my machine, or had power losses too, but the only thing I had to do is re enter my wireless info. You only have to enter the Netflix info (you really just authorize it once) once and that is it. Kinda like you would authorize a blu ray player. I never had any problems with long boot times and I have never had to reset the device after a power loss or if I unplugged it. Once you plug it in, it turns on and works.
I want a device that can easily connect to my personal DVD and CD ripped library (assuming using windows media center) AND use amazon prime. What is the best device Dec 26, 2012
You add the 'Plex' channel to your Roku and add the Plex Media client to your computer and point that to your folders with your vids and/or music. Works flawlessly.
Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems that you are referring to an older HD TV as "there is no HDMI connector" TV. If so, you are in luck - Roku 2 XS should come with a special cable to connect to such TVs. It has 3.5 jack (looks like one for the headphones) on one end and 3 RCA connectors on the other end. 3.5 jack goes into Roku, the other 3 connectors for TV. Tune your TV to AV channel, or whatever other channel RCA connectors corresponds to (there might be more than one on the back plus one extra on the front of the TV, that you would usually hook up video game console to). Turn Roku on and follow instructions on the screen.
I need to send digital audio to my receiver separately from hdmi (I have a projector). From what I can see the Roku doesn't have a digital audio out? Feb 27, 2013
I don't think this has audio apart from what the receiver has. I am not a specialist in this, but from what I can see, it doesn't.
