    Roku are a good choice and I had it on my old setup. Web OS on LG is very good and I have not felt the need to get an upgraded Roku yet.

    But as commented already on this thread you really need a TV stick (roku, sky, amazon, apple) to separate the software from the TV itself.

    Getting some strange happenings recently when switching on our tv. It's a Toshiba 42" and recently switches itself on after switching on the sky box as it's meant to. The screen has been showing multi coloured lines for a split second before switching itself off then back on again after a few seconds when it's all good again. One day it lost all sound even when tuned to digital tv not through the sky box.

    It only does this on first start up of the day. In anticipation of it going pop, Ive been looking at a couple of Samsung and LG 43" tv's in the £380 range.
