I haven't seen any difference with it running on Roku 3 either.
I immediately saw a difference on my Roku 3 4200: In channels with a horizontal row of video icons, when scrolling the icons page-by-page with the remote control's FF or RW buttons, what used to be a rapid display of traversal now is slowed-down as the selection lands on the next page's icon. It's reminiscent of "smart scrolling" in some word processors, designed to make it easier to follow the text flashing by. To me, this new Roku scrolling is an annoying distraction, but I suppose I may get used to it.
But that's purely cosmetic. More serious is, after you play a video in such a channel's row of horizontal video icon choices (or just enter a video's details screen and immediately exit back out to the horizontal list), it often, but not always, loses its place, and you're on the icon of another video elsewhere in the horizontal list, sometimes the one beside the video you were in, other times several icons away. Makes it real hard to remember where you were when you're rapidly browsing the details screens along a row.... Additionally, these screens with rows of video icons now are less responsive, frequently missing or passing over keystrokes. (Sometimes I have to hit a navigation key twice to get it recognized.) It's as if the new user interface eye candy has too much processor overhead to adequately attend capturing all keystrokes.
I wonder what other poorly-tested, broken features will rear their ugly heads over the next few days. I remember when I used to look forward to system updates; now I dread them because they always make things worse!
