I was considering getting one but we have our Bluray set up.  You might be able to fix the BluRay without getting into the router.  To set up the account on mine, I had to click on Netflix on my TV and I got a code that I then entered onto my account online.  I guess we had to input the password into the BluRay when we first set it up to connect it to the router but I can’t remember doing that because it was a while ago.

My mom has the 1 and the 3, the 1, she hated and the 3 she loves. She’s been unplugged from cable for years. The 3 is so much more updated, it’s totally worth it.

I am watching SoA on my Roku right now and love it. We watch Netflix on it nearly everyday and the one I have is wireless which is the only way we could stream shows in our living room since the cable/internet connection is in our bedroom.

We got Roku to watch hulu plus and netflix when our blu ray player gave out (that was connected wirelessly with a router across the house). We no longer have hulu plus, but we use it for netflix and pandora music. Once in awhile we’ll rent a movie on Amazon. I like it, and I especially like that I can use the mobile app as a remote (since the remote it came with doesn’t work that well).

We have ours connected wirelessly, and the router is in a different room.

@peachacid:  That’s crazy!  What’s the point of wireless if they have to sit next to each other anyway!

@peachacid:  mine just came in the mail today. We use a ps3 in one room for Netflix and Amazon prime. I wanted to get us one so we can watch the subscriptions in a other room too. 🙂 I got the 2 bc our other tv isn’t a newer tv. I can’t wait for Xmas to give it to my FI! Haha and make him set it up. It’s totally wireless so set up shouldn’t be hard.

We have a Roku and we love it. We watch Netflix on it all the time. The only issues are with our stupid router, which only works half the time anyway.

@peachacid:  we have the roku 2 and to us it has been worth every penny. It is wirelss and a whole lot further away from the tv than 10 feet, lol. 

It really does do pretty much the same thing as a bluray player though, with only one exception I can think of, which is that since it is so small it can be taken from room to room very easily, and when we travel we can take it with us and hook it up to the hotel tv, and as long as there is wifi there all of our channels can travel with us too.

We had a roku.  We hated it so much.  It never worked.  We ended up throwing it out and buying an Apple TV, which we love.

We have the Roku 2 (not the latest, the one before it).  Our router is downstairs and we use the Roku upstairs.  We use Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus.  It’s great!

I have a Roku, got rid of cable maybe 2 years ago? It does suck when “rewinding” but I love Hulu and Netflix! And I watched Downton Abbey on Amazon when I had my free trial too, it was great!
