I don't understand why anyone would release something capable of netflix streaming without wireless. They have the right idea. But assuming that everyone has rj-45 access in all the walls in their home is naive.

I hope you don't mind 30+ second bootup time to watch Streaming Netflix. No, what a minute, is it only the crappy Sony BDP-S300 that takes that long to power up?
What about the "constant on" feature that Roku needs to have or be forced to re-activiate via secret code from Netflix website? Will these Blu-ray players be allowed to be shutdown for days without that hastle?

Gary

is a "Hastle", like a "castle" with a hat on?

i have the roku box and i have never had to get another secret code from netflix after unplugging for a couple days. it takes about a minute to reload but no other issues.

Maybe lynn has 4 Roku boxes... or 4 personalities that are all in agreement.

correction: hassle, not hastle. I was in a hurry and didn't proof read before hitting the submit button.
I'll retest the Ruko for off-network to see if my reactivation was a one-time occurrence but my general point was that having VoD (albeit queued-up via website) usually means no waiting around for hardware/software loads.

lynn

i really only hit post once!

Lynn,
Do you have the roku box, and have you ever had to get another secret code from Netflix (after unplugging for a couple of days)? How long did it take to releoad, what about any other issues?

Gir

I unplug my Roku every day (it's connected to the switched outlet on my receiver). I haven't had any problems; never needed to call for a secret code. I don't know that I've ever had it powered off for more than two days in a row though.

Gir

PS. I've been using it for a little over 4 months.

all the problem is this "require a wired Internet connection"

I still need to perform the power-off test but I did see a couple of posts over on the Ruko Forums where people have experienced the "reactivation code" on NFPlayers when powered off for X amount of days. It's probably a moot point for comment about Blu-ray players & XB360 that have NFStreaming since those boxes have a Power button that puts the machines in Sleep Mode.

dAVe

I had a chance to perform my extended unplugged test of the Roku NFPlayer over the Thx-gvng week. I am happy to report that it did not require me to "reactiviate" the box after 8 days off the power supply. Perhaps that was an one-off fluke I experienced when I got the box back in June 08.

Various people in every country get the credit loans from different creditors, just because it's fast and easy.

This is really a great news considering most homes today already have internet-readyBlu-ray players in them. But what if you want to enjoy streaming from Netflix but your devices and wireless router are in separate rooms in the house? Don't worry, you can still enjoy this with the help of Netgear's Universal WiFi Internet Adapter. This WiFi adapter is compatible with most internet-ready devices such as TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, and more. You can also use it to connect notebooks, wireless printers, and other networked home theater devices.
