Roku just added the Time Warner Cable App. For me this is pretty cool because if you have an existing account, you can feed the same service anywhere in your house that has a Roku Box. There is no need to run a cable from the main TWC Box anywhere around the house.

That's pretty cool, I don't have TWC but the regular cable in my bedroom hasn't worked in years and the other bedroom in the house never had proper cord, if this had existed in the day that would have been a nice solution to that problem.  Although that will add on to your bandwidth per month.

Since I know little about Roku, can you explain it and these private and public channels?

Briefly looking through, not one had more than 3 stars at best. That mean a lot of 'meh' material out there?

Roku is a little black box that fits in the palm of your hand. You hook it up to your TV with cables that are supplied. Once you have it hooked up, you go onto Roku and start adding apps that appeal to your nature. Some of the apps will require you to enter a code, which you can do on the Roku site. As far as Private channels, same thing. Most get low grades due to the App being buggy at times. But they usually get them fixed fast enough. Also, some of the really low rated Private Channels are deceptive. They promise you one thing, and then try to get you to shell out your credit cards.

One to the wise, never pay for any of these apps. There is always another app around the corner that will offer you the same thing and usually free of charge. Public Channels are usually the ones that are endorsed by Roku and won't be pulled down anytime soon. The Private Channels is where the fun comes into play. These are User-created apps that circumvent codes for programming that you wouldn't otherwise get to see. This may all sound complicated in the way I'm giving you the info you need, but trust me, it's easy and once you get hooked on Roku, you will ask yourself how you did without it all along.

You're really complicating that description, Chip.

Mac: A Roku is like a cable box, except instead of hooking up to the TV line you hook it up to your internet (it's even wireless so you can put it anywhere in the house).  And then you can just pick the channels you want, so there's nothing there you don't want.  I've got about 20 channels, I watch about five (Netflix, Vimeo, Rev3, and Crackle) and almost everything there is in HD.  You can even hook up a USB stick to it to put your (mp4 and mkv) videos and pictures onto your TV.

You have to hook the Roku direct into your TV if you want to see anything on said TV. It depends one which Roku device you get. The older models run off RCA cables and the newer ones offer both RCA and HDMI. I run my PC off a wireless and have the Roku account set up online. Then you have to sync your account with the Roku Box serial number to activate and get it working. After that, it's just find channels you want to add. Some of the channels or Apps are stand alone while others like Plex 'host' a bunch of channels within.

I'm curious how your Roku is set up. The way I have it set up is the way I described above. My internet feed runs off the Router wireless to the computer and then from there I get the feed to my Roku.

Router>Computer>Wireless>Roku>RCA Cables>TV

I just have my Cable >Wireless Router > Roku.  It's probably because I don't have Plex.  Or haven't set it up.  I'm not keen on wiring everything together like that.

Love that wireless set-up.  I can hook that box up to any TV in the house (HDMI being everpresent these days) depending on the mood.

Mac, this sounds way more complicated than it sounds, you just set-up on your computer, "this is what I want," then you don't need to do that again.
