I don't have a television in my bedroom. I have an Apple Cinema  
Display that I have connected to my AppleTV (running MythBuntu).  
There's no way to connect a Roku box to my display without adding a  
hardware switch which is very inconvenient and probably expensive. I'd  
much rather queue up a NetFlix movie in the living room, capture it  
with an HD-PVR, add it to MyhVideo and watch it in my Living room,  
bedroom, on my laptop or let my kids watch in their rooms. They don't  
have televisions in their rooms, either. We're all Mythed up. :)
