just goto their website http://www.rokulabs.com and then check their
support forums for HD1000

but after reading avs forums and other places, roku is 1 yr behind in
the technology. These new AVeL LP2 and Buffalo LT and upcoming network
dvd HD ready players are far ahead.

So unless you only want myth, then go for roku. If you are open for
tinkering and stuff, then check out LP2 etc. I knew about Roku but
only came to find out about LP2 recently.
I'm planning to get some sort of bridge on the linux machine between
the mythweb and the LP2 linux server. So, I can click on the HD
recordings and watch them.

check out avsforums thread on LP2

also the iodata forum has some info about the linux server (wizd) and
about mpeg2-ts. The only major problem that stopped me from buying LP2
was inability to FF/REW on the TS streams. But their June 3rd firmware
release fixed that.

Just waiting for the right moment to click the checkout button on
their website now.
