Should I hard wire my Roku box?

Episode 1098 (2:13:39)

Jonathan from Rochester, NY

Jonathan has DSL internet, and is wondering if there's an advantage to hard wiring his Roku rather than having it wireless. Scott says yes, hard wire is better because of the possibility for interference in the Wi-Fi spectrum. David says that if he's not having video dropouts, hard wiring won't improve the video quality. It'll just give him a more consistent stream. He also has an A/V receiver wired to his speakers.

Should he opt for wireless speakers? Scott says that Atlantic and Hyperion have wireless signals that he can route to wireless powered speakers. But without them, then no. He would need wires.
