Original Roku box vs Roku HD

Postby clocks » Thu Aug 19, 2010 4:20 pm

Sorry if this has been discussed already. I recently purchased a second Roku (the HD). It looks exactly like the original model I got when it first came out. My question is, is there any difference in the innards of the original Roku box vs the Roku HD? Revised circuit board, more buffer memory, more efficient PSU, etc..? Or are the exactly the same in every detail? thanks!

I believe the original box and the HD are the same. They were when the SD and XR were first introduced anyway.

^^ other than the fact that the power adapter is better quality (I think)
Netgear WNR2000v2
Linksys WRT54G with DD-WRT Firmware acting as Client Bridge

Thanks. I will compare the two and see if I find any physical differences.

The power adaptor is definitely different. It is shaped different, different labeling, and it seems a little heavier. I am guessing probably higher quality.

Anything internal on the Roku box itself? I know for instance sometime companies make manufacturing improvements over time. The Xbox 360 has been though 5+ iterations now.

This is the hardware in the N1000 (the original box). I think the differences between the boxes may be in which features are enabled, although I have nothing factual to base that on.http://www.nxp.com/acrobat_download2/li ... 016106.pdf
