With the holidays coming around the corner, I thought I would share a "good" find I found last year.
I like this device because it can be used on those old 2,000 lbs TVs with only the RED WHITE YELLOW cable support. The extended family loves this device because it saves them from buying a new 60-70 inch TV which is way out of their price range. To give a better idea, they JUST got wireless internet last year so also introducing them to Netflix support this offers as well sometime soon. Usually you can find these on eBay for less than $100 dollars.
I travel with a Roku 2 for precisely that reason. Many hotels lock out the HDMI ports on their televisions but leave the RCA jacks operational for game consoles. When I encounter that I use my Roku 2. Roku 1 also has RCA jacks.
(My travel kit also includes a Fire Stick and a Chromecast.)
Interesting security info about smart TVs. My smart tv is rather slow and not so smart; so I've disconnected its wired and wireless access to the internet and just use my other smarter streaming devices, which most likely are also vulnerable to hacks.
