I second this approach. In case it is not clear, the Plex channel on the ROKU (and on neoTV, googleTV, android tablet, and iPad) will stream your recorded shows from windows media center. In this capacity, it can substitute as a media center extender.IVB said:I love the Roku/Plex combo. I ditched Satellite, we're now only HuluPlus, Netflix, and Amazon Instant Video. We only pay for 5 shows on AIV, still *much* cheaper than Satellite. I can access my media library via Plex.
I also own SageTV and 2 HD200's, but there's literally zero chance I'd invest new $$ into it. Sure it does tons of stuff, but its a dead product. No desire to build expensive & hot HTPCs in each room, and you cannot easily get stuff via streaming esp since much of it came out after Sage was EOL'ed.
I like my Roku and Plex.
