What effect does a roku device have on data usage,or does it? Is it worth the investment if it just eat through all my data plan GBs. All feedback welcome.

    I would not recommend using your Roku with your FP Internet connection. Especially since the Roku doesn't have a setting to select video play quality; my understanding is that it will select the best quality available.

    I believe you can set your screen resolution in settings on the Roku. Has anyone else tried to Roku with FP?

    @Richard Booher‌ : You can select the screen's aspect ratio (16:9, 4:3, etc.), not the resolution, at least not with Netflix. Hulu probably does, but I haven't checked.

    I believe this would be a VERY bad idea. Now I use my Roku A LOT, but my Comcast usage for the month of July shows 380GB of data transfer for my home connection!
