Thanks for the clarification. Question. Do you know if the oppo has a powered USB port? It would be nice to not have the unit plugged into an electrical outlet especially if one free electrical slot is not available.
I tested the USB port on my BDP-103 using the transmitter end of the wireless HDMI system I am reviewing (Nyrius Aries Prime) and it works. The dongle (transmitter) end has an HDMI connection and a mini USB input for power - very similar to the Roku. I think this setup should work for the BDP-103 + Roku as well.

On these things how much difference does proc speed really make? I mean they are light years ahead of what cable boxes ran on years ago even at low end models so I am just curious if it really makes much of a difference.

It is not a huge difference but it is there. What you get is quicker response when going through menus and it is probably a matter of milliseconds but it is noticeable. Also the amount of graphics on devices like a Roku are much more advanced compared to cable boxes especially from years ago.

Re: Roku Rocks HDMI With Its New Compact Dongle

I Felt the same way to but have found that the Roku offers many more channels of interest. If they can get more live sporting events game over. I have a feeling cable and sat companies will pressure espn and hang on to the non compete streaming contracts as long as they can.
