@cory_booth Have you looked into Harmony remote. I got the Harmony Home Hub on sale and loved it. It was surprising versatile. I can program most units, receiver, tv, roku, and amazon fire tv with it. It has it quirks at times, but works well 99% of the time. The more expensive remote must work better. Either way, I like the Harmony remote. I don't have to jumble multiple remotes anymore.
Ordered the smartsoundbar last week but just found out it does not have Ethernet port. Order shipped yesterday but I’m canceling my order. If it gets to the house I’m sending it back without opening the box. I was so excited about this product but can’t believe this very simple feature was omitted. Very disappointed Roku.
This exact conversation I had with another techie. Beta video tapes vs VHS, MP3 over wave audio or flac, now the discussion goes to ethernet or slower wifi. Seems the companies push on us the lower form of what we really want. Time to boycott the lower or inferior products.
You absolutely need to add an ethernet port. I was at the store ready to pick up a Sound Bar and that port being missing stopped me in my tracks. I have so much stuff on my wireless net now that they're all interfering with each other. Anything that stays in a fixed place needs to stay the heck off my wireless net! Please let me know once you've added it so that I can buy it immediately.
