you aren't seeing the usual red/white/yellow ports on the back of the XD and XS. the spot marked "a/v port" on those models is the composite port and the rokus come with a special cable that plugs into that port and splits into the familiar red/white/yellow cable ends. so all 4 currently available roku models DO have composite output, even if they don't look like it
