    Is anyone here using one of these? I'm tempted but wondered how it interacts with a projector. Is it similar to a DVHS player using component where it autoatically fills the screen in 1080i or 720p or does it act like a PC card and use resolutions.
    Also, does it work? Not wishing to sound silly, but does it work without any glitches. If you have a good stream and a solid ethernet conenction from your PC will it give flawless viewing.
    I was in PC World the other day and saw a Pinnacle Show Centre but I cant see any mention on the web of .ts compatibility, does anyone know anything about these.

    Nice hardware, but no DVI/HDMI digital output. It should work with most
    LCD/DLP projectors if set to 720p60 component format. No support for European raster formats (1080p50 or 720*576) available.
    TS streaming works for most streams, but audio is often distorted. It seems TS streams with MPEG-1/2 Layer-2 audio are not supported. Network shares (SMB) are restricted to 2 GByte file size, so VLC must be used with Streamplayer or CinemaSix for larger files.
    DVB reception with a PC DVB card and TSreader works fine for 60 Hz streams (Pioneer demo loop on Astra).
    The Roku is a nice toy for computer or HDTV freaks, but for the typical end user the software is to restricted and not stable enough.
