So we watch netflicks and hulu and attach our computer to our tv right now with a HDMI cable. If we want a different show we have to get up. Lame and lazy I know but we want to be able to use a remote control. Is Roku the best for this? We don't do any web browsing or games just tv and movies. Also while researching I found TvDevo but some say it's a scram others say they love it. Does anyone know which it really is? Can we really watch the Disney, sports, HBO and TLC type channels on it? Thanks

I have two older Rokus and thought the user experience was good. The only complaint was the response was a little slow, but not horrible. I'll add that the onlt thing I have to compare the Roku with are the computer and a couple of media streams that also offered Netflix (Seagate Hometheater+ and WD TV Live). The main plus for for Roku in the comparison was it's search capability.
