I have an offer to purchase a Roku 1 xds. I am looking for affordable ways for me to get HD content on my TV. I purchased a Panasonic Plasma 1080p TV back in 2008, and never had any real HD content, so I felt it was time.
As I already have Netflix, I thought it would be worth it for me to buy a roku so that I can get HD streaming to my TV. I know that the Roku 2 and the PS3 stream 1080p (aka "HI HD"), but I'm wondering if the Roku XDS can also stream the 1080p feeds.
I know that when the XDS was advertised, it was said to be able to do so, but then I've read that the 1080p streams are only on Roku 2. Can someone please confirm whether or not I can get the 1080p streams on the XDS? Additionally, if it turns out not to be the case, should I buy it, or get a Roku2, given that there is a possibility that the company will no longer release updates to the older models.
