According to RokuAnthony, the new products "will definitely have an SDK, and the continuation of our third party developer program is very important to us." So that's a plus...
Well, that would be nice at least (if they mean it)
I've stated this many times before, but the SDK was tremendously important to me - it was the reason I bought a PhotoBridge in the first place. I think the software that you and Marcelo (and many others) have influenced many people to stay with the PhotoBridge, and in some cases to buy-in in the first place. I hope some of my own code helped improve peoples experience.
But while I understand Rokus decision to end the HD1000 - I don't think it comes as a big shock - I really think Roku should have made an official annoucement in the forums, and talking to the people who matter - their customers. I respect that many companies don't have forums of the same calibre as the roku ones, but in this lack of announcement I really feel that Roku have shown a basic lack of respect to their customers.
