I bought the basic Roamio with Mini special. The Mini had the older IR only remote. So, rather than get cramps, I bought the newer combo remote and one for my Premiere too. Sometimes easy costs...

DrDon kick you off too?

Anyhow. Big yes to all. Ads in the guide needs some further definition though. Sometimes hitting pause will cause a promo to show above the content bar for a second, but it...

Michael, only you can decide. I looked at my viewing habits, my budget and my priorities. I bought my Roku 3 because it works great for Pandora. I seldom stream anything else at this time. I can't...

I had an amplifier in my attic once. It was for my FM antenna. When the power failed I lost the radio I was using for just that occasion. After the first amp died, I put the new one on a small UPS...

Perhaps for audio, but not much video. I don't know which providers will drop their quality to match that speed. I would say 5Mbps is absolute minimum, with 30Mbps being a good level for HD. Speeds...

That's very hard to answer, so I won't. It is important to measure your speed when you will be using the device. Your 8pm speed may be quite different than your 10am speed. Anyhow, what does...

VUDU or VUDU+ is definitely an internet streaming app. Not a very popular one either, due to its commercials.

Probably it will only last for 10 years and not 20 years. Keep us informed. :) I assume that you really care about the unit and have it on a good UPS?

Addition to what mdavej said, the S570 started making noise so it had to go. The S6200 has better audio support and doesn't have the YouTube message. I also bought a Roku 3 for Pandora and streaming...
