I just ordered a Roku HD box from woot the other day for $50. We are trying to cut expenses somewhat and our FIOS bill is outrageous. I ordered this not really knowing its capability and am a bit confused. Here is what I am looking to do, so just looking to see if you all know if this is possible.
With my work schedule right now, it is nearly impossible for us to watch live television. We DVR everything. So I am wondering, what channels can you strem through the Roku? I am assuming it would be any station that has a website that streams their content or Hulu. Also Pandora; I know it does that. Does it do local channels? If not can I simply use an attic mount HD antenna to get those signals? Any other advice you guys can give? I have read up on it, but it seems to have differing information and some contradicting. Can I get digital audio through it? And is it 720 or 1080 or does it just depend on the website / content?
