Re: Why does no Roku streaming device include Gigabit Ethernet?
I think I recognize that just fine. I basically said that in other words. Roku is not designed for users like me with a dedicated theater room and local media server. It is designed for casual users to stream from providers like Netflix and Amazon.
The Nvidia Shield is designed for people like me who need the extra horsepower needed to stream locally.
The Roku fills it's niche admirably (and I made a killing off their stock so I am happy!) but those looking for something more are just not going to get it. Buy a Shield.
