To clarify:
It will upscale to 720p, and pass 1080p. It will not scale to 1080 from 480 or 720. I'm not sure about the 3rd gen Roku, but that's the case for the RSS and 2nd gen devices.

It does its own decryption. It's exactly the same as Fab in all respects, except that each of the 4 modules is a separate program so there's no "AIO" type functionality. It doesn't phone home either,...

There's a new kid on the block, which looks suspiciously like Fab, and also has pass-through options. The cost is less too.

You are correct. The bit rate of the compressed audio is irrelevant. It will vary depending on the content. Dialog, for example, is mostly silence and compresses well. As to why some people might...
