I don't want to record the movies, just want the instant gratification of
being able to watch them on demand. I already have Satellite and a Myth
box. Was wondering if there was a way to avoid having to buy another box
(roku) and take advantage of all the other things myth does well like
distributing content throughout the house. I am paying for the Netflix
Streaming Service, to bad there is not a way for me to use it. Maybe
someone will figure the DRM out and a myth plugin will be made.
