BBO the Roku is endorsed by the Linux community!! that should speak loudly on its reliability and capabilities of course the box is running Linux too but well worth its weight in gold.

I just searched the net and found a bunch more channels that you can add to the box with a code for each one. Sites like www.Archive.org has amazing old shows and concerts that stream right to your TV. Wifey approves because she has been watching it non-stop.
BTW I swear it was for her! I use the TV in my office which already has net access (although not as much as Roku).

I hear your enthusiasm for Roku (and Linux), but keep in mind: correlation is not causation.

Why would there be blackouts? You/me/we are paying for it!
