Unless you would be hooking that roku up to a tv that has no DirecTV box, I'd just sit tight for the next few months, and see what happens with dvrs on demand offerings. I have a feeling they will completely remove all this debate but for a small small % of people.
There is no chance I can get my roku to look as good as anything coming from my DirecTV receiver. There is no hilarious part about that, its pure fact. I don't have the download speed to have full 1080p true hi quality streaming to my house, and neither do many of dvrs subscribers I'd guess.
Heck, 720p will look better than 1080p from a roku, much less 1080i or 1080p. Plus, does anyone know what the actual resolutions are for the programs that are provided by hbo go?
Don't think Netflix is actually 1080p. It is just what the box outputs as an option. It does not do 1080i only 720p and 1080p.
Top Gear on Netflix looks amazing compared to what D* puts out.
Netflix has 1080p Dolby 5.1 content.
No, I can't list what is available.
The site http://tvandmoviesnow.com will list Netflix content that has 5.1 audio. open up the search options and check 'surround sound' to limit the list to the 5.1 content.
This statement doesn't make sense. If that is the case, then why support HBOGO on ANY system? XBox, Samsung???
Directv needs to stop playing games.
The Roku is synonymous with cord cutting, while the others are not.
I suppose if you repeat yourself enough times then it must be true.:nono:
Well, it is true.
So, again I ask, what compelling feature does ROKU bring to the table that the XBox does not? The major players are Netflix and HULU plus. XBOX also brings the ability, through Media Extender, to be an OTA DVR. In my opinion, XBOX would be preferred if I was to become a cord-cutter. So, if it is all about preventing the cord-cutters, why yes to XBOX and no to ROKU?
I looked into a ROKU, and was not compelled to even be interested in it over the combo of SageTv and PS3. If Sage ever quits, Ill move to Xbox.
The XBOX is not a device synonymous with cord cutting, while the Roku is.
The two people I know that have cut the cord (one DirecTv sub, one Comcast sub), both are using an Xbox, neither have a Roku. Both are in their 50's and neither use it to play games. Just an observation.
In your own opinion the Roku is synonymous with cord cutting. I'm sure that's what you meant to say.
I mean, if you read what Anthony Wood the CEO of Roku has said, fewer than 8% of Roku owners are cord cutters.
That's an interesting opinion that not everyone shares.
No, I meant exactly what I said.
So you make statements you can't back up? Cool. As long as we understand each other.
