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.

It depends on the plugins you have. Out of the box the support is limited. But it's easy to expand.

As a base nothing can best it on live tv/dvr capabilities on Windows. It's very easy to use, and there are no extra fees. And ability to share with extenders or other Windows machines (Win7 only) is a great plus.

And, adding plugins for YouTube, RSS/Vodcasts, Hulu, and even Boxee/XBMC is very easy. I believe there is even a PlayOn plugin as well.

However you need an entire PC with a large hard drive, and powerful processor/gpu.
