It's Official - HD1000 Dead and Discontinued

http://www.rokulabs.com/support/HD1000discontinued.php No surprise to any of the long timers following this forum, but Roku has finally admitted the HD1000 is a dead product. Thank goodness for all the great third parties supporting the product given Roku's abysmal failure of their multiple promise...

So we are now at the end of life for this original poll - when we started it last spring 2006 seemed a long way off. I myself sure didn't think we still would be in what is really an Alpha release (not feature complete) going into 2006 with really nothing new since spring 2005. So going forward - is...

All this makes me think that hardware business models may just not work for media players. There seems to be the need for too much investment over time in software to make the devices actually work. What do you think about a model more like Tivo where you pay $300 to buy the device, but also pay say...

Here is a pretty good and long thread over at AVSForum talking about the state of the world in media viewers / streamers with an emphasis on HD capability and real-world production use cases.

I'll be placing mine back in the carton (on which I think is printed something about the unit being able to display a light show in synchronisation with music). There are a number of products which have emerged during the interim period since beta 2 was released and Roku is apparantly no longer in ...

To the folks who jumped all over this post - to be clear I am not attacking the developers of this product - it's a management decision as to how many engineering resources to put on a product. I don't get the sense the product is particularlly buggy, or poorly designed, which is what I would ding a...

HD1000 2.0 - One year late so far - Will it ever ship ?

Are the rest of you as frustrated as I am that it the HD1000 will just never get to 2.0 production? Recall the history of the followon release to the original HD1000 software. It was originally promised by Anthony Wood (Roku CEO) for Summer 2004. This was extended a couple of times and then for sure...

Just want to throw in my $0.02 that I am feeling much better about the Roku platform lately. It helps a ton to have expectations set about timing and scope of the 2.0 release - would still like to have a broader vision of what to expect in the final 2.0 release but feel better now that I have in a y...

yep - much of this has to do with the philosphy of why and how you run a beta program. From my perspective this isn't even a real "beta" - since in our company beta implies feature complete - here we would call this release an Alpha since it isn't. Roku's philosophy seems to be to issue an unknown n...

bump - into fourth week with no response from Roku. Not even a "sorry I'm not allowed to disclose the roadmap." There is also another thread specifically asking about when we will see the next beta, V 2.0.11 Should I just give up ? As I write this 550 people have viewed this thread and more than 100...

Schedule for feature complete and GA?

Hi RokuDon -

Can you share the current roadmap for feature completion of version 2.0.X, and the expected GA date? How many more releases will we see before a feature complete version shows up ? After that, how long do you expect to be in test and regression before GA?

thanks,

- Dan
