Older Roku Player

What is the difference between the older N1000 Roku player and the new models, and does the new instant replay remote work with the older player?

The button works on the older model if you have the new remote of course.

The original N1000 is comparable to the current HD, the difference being size (the HD is smaller), and the N1000 also has component, s-video and optical outputs as well as the composite and HDMI that the HD has. Performance is the same. The 12 button instant replay remote works with all models, old and new.

Also, if you don't need wifi, the old hardware can be hacked to support USB.

And if you have an iOS device (iphone etc), Pirey's DVPRemote App will give it the functionality of the new Roku remote and more.

But since the older N1000's don't seem to go too cheap on EBay you might be better off looking for deals on the newer platforms if you don't already have an N1000.

The old N1000 just gets better everyday, 1080p is the only thing it seemingly won't support going forward, and with most of us bandwidth precludes that anyway.

I too have been confused over what model my old N1000 was most like. Now I know, the HD.

So the N1000 can't support 1080i or p update?

Oh well, I'm happy enough with what I've got so far.

Only the XR, XD and XDS support 1080p. None of the boxes support 1080i.
