I ... would like to change my M1001's SW to that of Roku instead of Pinnacle. How do I do that?
The Pinnacle devices are not licenced to use the Roku software (blame Apple I think) and therefore you cannot install the Roku version of the firmware.
I do wonder about ongoing support for Pinnacle branded devices ... Hopefully when firmware updates for the Roku M1001 come out they will also make Pinnacle versions available as well.
, as SydneyGuy said, you cannot do anything to change your unit's inability to use iTunes. Pinnacle doesn't have a license from Apple to use it. However, the rest of SydneyGuy's post is wrong. There is no separate "Pinnacle software" and "Roku software". The software is exactly the same and all firmware updates for both Pinnacle and Roku Soundbridges come from Roku. I'd imagine what keeps the Pinnacle units from using iTunes is an extra chip (or code on a chip common to both) that tells the firmware "I'm a Pinnacle unit; I can't use iTunes".
