Roku Box?

I'd like for my boys to be able to get the free Amazon movies and tv shows but their TVs don't support the Amazon feed. The Roku 2XD is listed as a compatible device. Anyone here have any experience with a Roku box? If so, what do you use it for? I'm trying to figure out if there is $80 worth of functionality in these things.

That said I'm trying to find a good app to stream web media/stored media from my iMac to the roku. Right now I'm going through the download/install/learn process wiht Plex.

Anyone have any experience with this?
Love Plex - Works better than playon

Yep - Plex is definitely your best option.

(On a related note, I have no idea why Roku hasn't added a normal DLNA client as an app.)

Thanks for the input. I've figured out how to stream media from my HD to Plex but what I can't figure out is the browser streaming/saving thing.

Couldn't get it to work and once I clicked off the tutorial I can't find the myPlex button/link again...

Plex is great for streaming media from your PC to your tv/phone etc. The browser streaming is crap though. Playon's PlayMark is much better in that respect. I guess that's why I use both. I really wish Plex would make a usable version of PlayMark on their software because I like Plex's interface much better, as well as being able to stream my movies from home on my pc at work and on my mobile.
