Also, Dual-Band is no longer mentioned as a feature in the Roku Shop, nor in the spec list on the main site. All models share the feature point "Built-in Wireless (Wi-Fi b/g/n)".

Better to get the best possible 2.4GHz performance since this may be something of a breakout release. Perhaps the next versions can reintroduce dual-band, at least in the top model.

I figured as much, I mean the PS3, Wii consoles had to have a new and separate IR/RF(?) receiver to pick up motion. I doubt the "old" boxes were designed for future use..but you never know unless it's confirmed!
