When I test my internet speed, I get 10mbps - 12mbps consistently on my main computer.

It is normal practice for ISPs to prioritize traffic to speed test sites.  So the results aren't typically reliable.

Let us know what happens.  I love my LG, I've been streaming a movie every night and the picture quality has been great.   Streaming Youtube and Pandora is fun too.

Nice! Love my ROKU. I have the original. The new ones look really nice. I like the ability to stream over your network or attach and external HD.

I'll probably wait until the next version to upgrade though.

Hopefully that fixes your problem. I have zero issues watching Netflix with my Roku. The NHL and MLB apps work great too.

Well, I got the Roku XD/S via UPS yesterday. I like the interface better than the Sony.
I didn't have any problems streaming HD. I think it's a keeper.

What is the difference between a Roku and an apple tv? I haven't studied the two since I don't have a nice tv but the roku certainly more affordable.

Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth.

We picked up a Roku box when they first came out and even beta tested several versions of their software, which was mutually beneficial during the infancy of Netflix streaming.  Roku was the only option for streaming Netflix at the time.  The Apple TV model available at the time of course did not have Netflix streaming at all.

Currently, Roku will also stream LMA, Apple TV will not.  Our Roku unit allows component, composite and HDMI video output with both optical and analog audio outputs, not sure about the current Roku boxes but Apple TV does not have the same output flexibility. There are other differences but we don't really find ourselves using the other available features on Roku much except when conducting the beta tests.

Many devices will stream Netflix now, which is our primary usage.  Some of the devices have implemented a better GUI than others for streaming Netflix.

Now that both our main TV and Blu-Ray player have Netflix streaming built in, the Roku unit has been moved to another TV. 

Roku's interface is the most enjoyable followed by the Blu-Ray players.  The TV's implementation of Netflix while certainly usable is a bit awkward compared to the other two.

How do you stream LMA with the Roku ???

One thing I noticed is that Netflix says it's streaming HD, but my HD TV says the incoming signal is 720p.

I always thought that Netflix HD was 720p.

720p is HD.

This whole solution intrigues me.  If I can find a box that allows streaming from online as well as directly from my computer, I'm definitely going to give it a go.

LMA Archive dot Org setup info here ---> http://www.thenowhereman.com/roku/

720p is High Definition, OTA HD broadcasts are either 720p or 1080i depending on the network.  ABC for instance chose 720p standard because it is better for motion i.e. sports than 1080i.

Original Roku boxes could only do 720p HD but I believe the newer boxes have the option for 1080i too, this would appear in the settings menu.  Some older HD sets could not accept 720p only 1080i.  I believe Apple TV is 720p only but not certain on that.

I've been shopping for a Bluray player, and many of them these days appear to be DLNA certified. Might want to look into that option.

Our new Oppo 93 Blu-Ray player is real sweet, streams Netflix similar GUI as Roku and plays everything including; SACD, HDCD, DVD-Audio/Video, Blu-Ray3D, even low tech MP3 discs and Video CD's.  Doesn't stream LMA though, but who knows maybe with a firmware update down the line.

Check it out if you are in the market for a disc player now...
