XD sitting on top of a 2nd generation Apple TVTo get started with setup, you must create a Roku account if you don’t already have one.

The account also stores information about your device and how they are set up. I already had an older Roku with my 2nd TV, so I already had a Roku account.

I believe the XS will also function with the Time Warner cable channel, but it was already in use in my daughter’s room. I have my Roku hooked up via an HDMI cable to my Onkyo AV receiver which is the hooked to my TV. I just ordered the box and am waiting for it to be delivered.

TMT3, TMT5 or PowerDVD7 pre-v7.3.4617.0 are your only options for full menu BDMV support with Media Center integration. I can confirm that the PBO does indeed play Blu-Rays in BDMV folder format while streamed across my network from my unRAID server. Playback is rock solid with no stuttering or other playback issues based on a short test movie I played. Now I’ve just got to see what’s the best way to play BDMV folders in WMC before I jump in and extract all of my ripped iso’s. I just started a thread in the Patriot support forums and asked the question about using the PBO with unRAID shares.
I’m looking to be running a lot of HD content from my NAS once it is up and running. I thought about getting something like this but have decided to go with building my own HTPC. The NMP-1000P should be getting UPnP/DLNA server function around June/July according to their forums.

The main reason I bought a Roku was to get away from the high cost of cable and satellite. @Jay I am using both the Roku 3 and the Roku XS.

Other private channels could be used by businesses for training or sales videos, for example. The only issue I can complain about is that I have to crank up the volume on some channels and not on others. Some of the channels do require you to go to a special site on the web, to type in a code so that you link the channel to your specific account / Roku box. As soon as I was connected, the Roku 2 found and installed a firmware update. I was then ready to setup the box and connect to my Roku account.
