"Great! But no digital audio out for older receivers."4.0 starson by latempete
Pros: Tons of channels. Easy setup and use. Dolby Digital. 1080p. Ability to add private channels.
Cons: No optical audio output. No DLNA (hopefully just not yet).
Summary: I agree with the reviewers positive points. But there is one glaring omission. I have been using Roku for over a year now and just upgraded to the Roku 2. I really like it but the lack of an optical digital output doesn't make sense. Especially since they make a point of 5.1 audio and at the same time "older" TV support. This is the "flagship" model. My old Roku had an optical out... So, to get the benefit of digital audio/surround sound i had to purchase an ADDITIONAL device to extract the audio from the HDMI and output it to a Toslink (optical port). Plus I had to purchase an additional HDMI cable to run into the audio extracting device. :-/ It more than DOUBLED the cost of the Roku. The only other option would be to use the analog stereo outputs on the Roku. But that would defeat the purpose.
