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.

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!
