Re: Firmware update v2.9 build 1553

Hello, guys and gals,

Yes, Roku has begun rolling out a new firmware release, which is now in it's limited release phase. We're preparing the release notes for the update, and will post them next week. The full roll-out should be completed over the next week or two.

Thanks,
C. Shawn Smith

Now what is this?? Are you discriminating against the androgynous members of society?? ;)

The new release seems stable to me and I will wait to find out what it really does.

I know there are good reasons for the stealth release but I for one would like to have a heads up on what is coming with each release so I could stress out over why my pet issue was omitted, or included. I can stress both ways without difficulty. :D

So what DOES Mode 1 mean in the network screen?

My guess is you will have to wait for the release notes next week.

Well this is just great. Build 1553 bricked my box. Now what am I supposed to do.

Actually it didn't but I'm sure someone will say that soon enough.

Forced the update last night and upon reboot I had a good wireless mac address again instead of all 0's. It's been like that for about a year now. Wondering if anyone else has noticed this?

That was one of the fixes in the new build. If anyone has a unit that has non-functioning wireless, where the MAC address has been rendered all zeros, all you need to do is hook up a wired connection update to the new build and it should restore wireless functionality.

Great this update broke my box. I have a xds and a mitsubishi wd-60c9 and now all I get is a green screen. I have tried plugging all cable in and out several time and rebooting with no luck. Now this awsome product that I never had trouble with is broken.

What type of video cable are you using - HDMI, RGB or RWY ??
