I have a recent roku and it gets tons of channels, and works perfectly on my wireless home network. Since i have an ipad2 and will get a 3 i like the idea of streaming wirelesly my ipad stuff to my hdtv. I did buy an hdmi adaptor for my ipad but its a pain to have a 12 foot cable on the floor etc. what surprises me is the big deal thats made out of the jailbroken atvs. I've looked at everything thats available with the jailbreak and most if not all of it is already on the stock roku. So why atv over roku? Still, i'll get one, hopefully an atv3 if that comes soon, just for the ipad streaming.
