RE: Roku proved a disapointing Failure

Salesman claimed they get few returns.
But when pressed..admitted they DO get some.
I was one of the lucky ones I suppose.
Yes My wireless works :-) The Roku found it instantly and the signal strength was as high as the Roku graphic allowed.
Just would Not connect. Same with the Cable (which did finally connect..albeit barely).
Clearly Something was broken
No idea that one can delete the Credit card nonsense after the fact.
It's not mentioned ..Anywhere.. in the brochure babble.
But then Neither is the Mandatory Credit card sign up.
Not overly clever marketing IMO.
Clearly it made me angry and cost them a customer/sale and a returned unit.

Maybe ? in a few months when the just released 'revised' Roku versions show up on the shelves I'll consider spending another afternoon Chasing down gremlins.
Now that I know that the retailer will give full refunds for 30 days .. without question
Although My Son just told me an Xbox is the Ideal interface/gizmo for TV watching.
No extraneous nonsense Plus one can play Xbox.
