Multimedia, AV My husband stopped trusting me with his PS3 after I burned three Netflix PS3 software disks (a known problem), so he asked me to get my Netflix kick with another device (that was before the disk-less PS3 solution). So I bought the $99 Roku XD|S, the highest Roku model, a Linux-based video streaming TV device.

A UPnP client is coming, from what I read online. Besides, there's a USB port for local media.

Not having a uPnP client out of the box is very disappointing, most of us have a home network, LAN or uPnP based, filled with content, be it music or video. I have ripped my favorite music from my cds or even lp and stored those file on a NAS server. And my home made videos are also on that NAS device as are my favorite shows. No more cd/dvd handling, available from every location in the house where a PC or media streamer is available.

The whole device smells a bit like an unfinished, work in progress, requiring you to wait or search for functionality (the 'unlock codes the OP publishes are a funny example).
For media streaming better alternatives are available!

do you have a link to an article for the uPnP stuff? I'm trying to decide if I should get an xBox 360 in Jan. which will give me the local media and Netflix, hulu, and much of the rest that roku supports, or just wait for the Roku uPnP support.
