Thanks, I clicked to install but will have to test later today. I've 
always wondered about the mpeg2 vs. h.264 encoding formats. Since mpeg2 
was first I figured it was easier and less CPU intensive than h.264 
which is more compressed.  For a while I thought it was just a licensing 
issue. I do know that the HDHR Connect app for Roku isn't very good, but 
it does work on my Samsung Galaxy S8.
