Chuck, this page will show you how to add the LMA. These are all "aftermarket" channels. Not all work perfectly. I use the newscaster channel for MSNBC and it will make it about 3/4 of the way through a broadcast and then just stop...better than nothing though.

Well, my Netflix streaming problems are over since I returned the Sony and bought the Roku box. I'm very happy with the Roku.

Roku Rocks!!!  Their development and support folks are great to work with. Very dedicated to the end user enjoyment/experience of their product.

Just an update: 

The Roku has working great for me over the past month. I'm very happy with it. No more buffering pauses anymore.

And the quality is 720p?  Not pixelated?

Yes. It's a 720p stream. No more buffering.

I just went through a similar effort, my wife wants to stream Netflix onto our HDTV. I looked at the Roku, but wanted to be as future proof as possible, yes I realize that is fool's errand. The main reason I did not go with the Roku was the lack of HDMI support.

I ended up buying the Western Digital WD TV Live Plus HD Media Player, HDMI out, Flac support, 2 USB ports. I should get it this week and let folks know what I think and it works out.

Thanks for the informative thread.

All Roku units including the original have an HDMI output.  Both their current top 2 model units are also 1080p capable.  The single version original units were 720p as is their entry level unit today but all have HDMI.

Amazon just announced their tv/movie streaming service is free for Prime members.

The Prime membership is great (free 2nd day shipping, $3.99 for next day), and this just sweetens the deal.

It looks like the Roku boxes can stream Amazon content too.
Is Amazon streaming as good as Netflix streaming I wonder?

It should be.  Amazon has far more infrastructure, engineering talent, and resources.

I haven't tried it yet.  I have a large Sony that should work with it, but need to run a cable.

I beta tested Amazon VOD streaming feature on the Roku before it went public, ultimately there were no streaming problems.  At the time Amazon was charging for each stream unlike the recently announced Prime member streaming service. 

The marketwatch report I read about Amazon's new offering was that it was offering around 5000 titles with unlimited streaming to their Prime members compared to about 20,000 available for streaming from Netflix.  They don't yet have the studio contracts that Netflix has and there are currently more devices that stream Netflix than Amazon but of course this could change.  Amazon wants a piece of this market even though it is not their primary business.
