After using a different model of Roku, I decided I wanted the 1080p model and one with an ethernet connection; which led to the Roku 2 XS, the only model with an ethernet jack.

Initial setup failed when it would not connect via cable or wifi. Testing with a direct connection to my cable modem worked and updated software, but when re-connecting to the router, would not connect.

Spent about an hour and a half with Roku technical support (in a third world country,) and was unable to resolve the problem. Unit returned to Amazon the next day for a refund.
