Based on darkslide's comment, it looks like with this Plex connect hack, I might be able to stream movies from my computer.
What format are your movies in now? The Apple TV streams m4vs encoded in x264 built in from iTunes without any workaround what so ever. I have all of my DVDs and BluRays stored on my PC with movies and TV shows broken out and all stored in iTunes.
Can someone explain why I would want plex instead?
Roku does essentially turn your TV into a smart TV, but with a lot more options than most smart TVs have, in the form of both official Roku apps / channels, and the ability to install user-created private channels.
Live and on demand local channels are a possibility with the private channel NoWhereTV on Roku. They don't have all local stations, but there are quite a few of them, along with a ton of other broadcast content. You can look at the list here[thenowhereman.com]. LIVE basic cable channels like SyFy are less likely (legally, anyway). You can get some streamed content from the internet onto the Roku via the Plex media server[plexapp.com] (which probably isn't a great option if you aren't a techie), or you can subscribe to PlayOn[playon.tv] for about $25 a year right now (or lifetime for $50!), and get a ton of streamed content[playon.tv], including SyFy Rewind. PlayOn is easy to set up; there's a app on Roku for it, and you just log in once you've set up an account.
Those are the two apps I wish ATV would get - Amazon streaming and PlayOn.
