    Fuck, and I came here to see if I should buy a Chromecast or Roku streaming stick. Any thoughts?
    You're assuming they'd bring HD down to SD price. They'd just eliminate the SD price and everyone would be paying extra.

    I know I'm late to the party, but I finally got one of these. Is everything in this thread still relevant? If it isn't what are the must haves/hacks/etc. for this device?

    Those are awesome dude! If you're over the age of 14: Crumple those up. Soak them in gasoline. Lay down. Light them on fire.

    To add to this even further, can you even buy a SD TV anymore? I dont see them around anymore for sale. Fuck you can get a 40"-45" 1080p TV for like $300 these days.
    The only places I see SD tvs anymore is in like cabins we rent out in the summer in northern Michigan.

    My grandmother still has a tube TV. Every time I go to her house it's like seeing someone use an abacus or something.
