    Funny seeing something with an HDMI port being called 'old'

    I've been looking for a roku on Craigslist for about $50 to hook up an old CRT for Amazon prime streaming

    After adding the keyboard to actually use it, its more like $90.

    My android powered Vizio Co-Star is about the same price, and is available now.

    If it will put the content of my notebook and desktop screens on my 'big' HD display, wirelessly, I'm in, although it looks like I'll need a display with four HDMI inputs.

    Not really -You can get a Roku HD direct from Roku for $69.99 with free shipping.
    You can get the Roku LT direct from Roku for $50. Why go to Craigslist?

    Any TV with an HDMI port still has plenty of life left in it.

    I'm curious about the keyboard. I own so many wireless keyboards already and wonder if any would be compatible. Is the FAVI one Bluetooth? IR? Proprietary?

    I've seen some of the XS 2 for $50 but they go pretty quick.
    There's a refurb SMP-N200 for $35 shipped right now on ebay that will do Amazon Prime & DLNA. I'll likely pick that up.

    Pretty pleased with the SMP-N200, interface is about identical to a PS3. It was a little hassle to set up as the Mac address had been previously activated since it was a refurb, you'd think Sony would correct that in their refurb process.
