Before I begin, though, a word of warning: no, you will not get HuluPlus or Netflix free just because you paid for the Roku box. I seriously doubt anyone thought this was the case, but just in case I'm wrong you still have to pay for those subscriptions if you want to use those channels. Also, you still have to have a cable subscription that includes HBO to access HBO Go - and just because your cable or satellite provider allows you to watch the HBO Go app on your mobile device doesn't mean they'll allow you to access HBO Go on the Roku. Through DirectTV, I can watch HBO Go on my aforementioned mobile devices, but (as of this writing) I can't watch HBO Go on the Roku. I maintain this is more the fault of HBO than Roku or the providers (this fact apparently holds true on the Apple TV as well), but regardless this is something you need to remember if HBO Go is a make-or-break factor in whether to buy one of these devices.
Setup is easy. You plug in an HDMI cable (or a component cable, if you have a non-HDMI TV; another advantage all the Rokus have over the Apple TV), plug in the power supply, and you begin setup.Read more ›
I have, however, some knowledge of techology as an enhancement for home entertainment. I have a 46" Samsung LCD with "full array" LED backlighting (2010), an OPPO BD-83 player, and a Denon receiver. I feel my equipment, while not cutting edge, is pretty good. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about film and have been purchasing dvds, dvd-rs, or blu-ray discs since each format became available. Perhaps because of my age, my taste runs toward older, studio catalog titles. For me, "streaming video" meant poor, blurry images and poor sound especially for older titles. I resisted all the little gizmos techies talked about when they discussed "cutting the (cable) cord" by streaming videos from Netflix and other "like" services. I wanted the best quality image I could get and I assumed "streaming" was for folks who really did not care about picture quality as long as they could see what was going on (I know, I know, what an uninformed snob!). I spent a great deal of money on Directv and buying Warner Archives, Columbia Classics and MGM limited edition discs (usually dvd-rs).
Then, I read an Amazon customer review of a studio catalog title I was interested in. It was an older movie(the 40's)and he said he had streamed it using Netflix. I found out that Netflix and Amazon had many of the titles available to "stream" that I usually was unable to find at any rental place. I decided to purchase the $60.00 Roku HD (720P) for my little Samsung 32" set in my den.Read more ›
One note on the remote pictured, it's not the one included. The remote that came with this player has the added, dedicated buttons for Netflix, Pandora and Crackle. Other than those additions it's the same as what is pictured. Highly recommended for those who just want a streaming player for under $60, since this is all it does.
The Roku HD is a great little wireless-only player. Despite its name, the Roku HD does not support HD video at 1080p. It supports 720p.
The Roku HD is the replacement for the Roku LT per Roku. Currently the Roku website as of this writing is listing both the Roku LT and the Roku HD, with both feature sets being identical. The Roku LT is sold out on Roku's website. Update July 11 2012: It is currently in stock again on Roku's website as of this writing.
It supports 802.11n WiFi (b/g/n compatible). It has the following video outputs, identical to the Roku LT: 480i over composite video, 480p over HDMI, and 720p over HDMI. Like the Roku LT, it will do the following video modes: 720p HD, 16:9 anamorphic, and 4:3 standard. It will not do 1080p.
--An HDMI cable is not included, but the composite video cable is.
NO GAME MODE:
The Roku HD is not capable of playing Angry Birds, Pac Man, or similar games. The Roku HD does not include bluetooth capability, which is necessary to play these games. The Roku players that are able to play Angry Birds/Pac Man as of this writing are Roku 2 XD and Roku 2 XS and the previous, older Roku 2 HD. Thus this Roku does not include the Roku Game Remote. Current price for that remote is around $35. The Roku 2 XS (model subject to change via Roku's website) comes with the Game Remote as of this writing, or you can purchase it in a package with a Micro SD card or separately.
I love the Roku HD's simple remote -- it is the one with the Netflix, Pandora and Crackle buttons, although it cannot go frame-by-frame in slow motion like a DVR remote. It is still a great design. It is the same remote that I got with my Roku LT and the one supplied with the Roku 2 XD.Read more ›
