Re: Holy cow, Netflix really does use a lot of bandwidth ...

said by MADx:

I ran Netflix Roku box all night ( I couldn't sleep), I use at most about 3 gigs and thats streaming all HD content. I watch about 4 HD quality movies. This how much I used so far of the 250 gig limit, and this is from surfing the net, down loading two games from Steam, and streaming Netflix movies.

As of 4/16/2010* 250GB 44GB 206GB
I wonder if the widget on my Vizio TV uses more bandwidth than a Roku?

Looking at an image of the Roku from the Netflix site, it doesn't appear to have an HDMI output. My Vizio is the VF552XVT which is true high definition. Could the Roku just play SD as HD? I no longer have access to the Comcast meter. My router (Tomato firmware) indicates I've used 140 GB so far this month.
