Hopefully that YouTube support will extend to earlier devices. (we have a Roku2 and/or a 2S or/or an XS, or something(s) like that, I forget exactly.)

Well, I'm not sure how bee's-kneesy it will strike you, but I think it will perform as advertised. But I agree the Chromecast looks like it might be a worthwhile add-on. It’s only $30, after all. (But will they require a credit card? Hmmmm.)

I hope they don't give you any guff and will still do that for you. My recollection is that I tried to activate, it asked for a credit card, I got mad and did on-line support, the representative said I had to give CC info, steam started coming out of my ears, then the representative said something like "do you want me to get a supervisor so you can activate without providing credit card info?" After being warned that I would not be able to make purchases (“aw, shucks!”), they let me activate.
