Very interesting idea. The biggest issue with the Roku is that it can’t play your own media, just stream things from the internet. This “private channel” for Roku lets you connect to your Plex Media Server and stream media.
So far it hasn’t really worked for me. I have been able to see my media on the Roku but haven’t been able to get anything to successfully play. I haven’t had that much time to play with it so hopefully I can get it to work. If I can, I can totally see myself buying more Rokus.
