Video is more troublesome with 200-300 DVDs stored mostly as unencrypted VOB files (in DVD-ready directory structure). The Roku's limited variety of acceptable file formats is the biggest annoyance I am currently expecting, but I may be able to rig up the pieces to transcode on the fly behind my http server feeding the Roksbox channel.)

My original Boxee Box is still going strong. Plays everything, including ISO's with VOB files. Too bad they abandoned the format and sold out to Samsung. I recommend building a mini ITX media pc... will be my next project. You can then play any media format, stream web media, run XBMC, etc.
