Anyone have any input on how the roku's deal with bandwidth? I read in a blog at Netflix that the hardware streamers check your internet speed at the start of streaming and then pick a stream that allows for 40% overhead in your network to account for changes in speed/other things on the network using internet access, etc.
I have a very consistent 3.15Mbps connection such that HD videos streamed via the computer (Silverlight) will jump up to the 2,600 Kbps stream and stay there through the show. However, if the info on the blog is correct, the Roku unit would never go above the 1,500 Kbps SD stream because it does not allow for the 40% overhead (my internet stream would have to be above 3,600Kbps.)
I'm thinking about getting a roku player as using Play On is just annoying. Any comments?
