A storage meter on the Home screen would be nice.

That shows how much space is being used & free. A second display next to it for SD card usage & space.

Maybe have an option to select storage meters and look at how big the channels are that are taking up the most storage.

Have you been able to fill up your SD card?

On the R2s it is not needed as they off load the least used chs and reload them as needed so that with or without an SD card you Roku will never fill up.

Having said that I do see a reason to have that on the R1s and it probably could not hurt to have it on the R2s.

Of course there is always the possibility that a lot of users will misinterpret the information and that could cause a lot of support problems.

My guess is that an SD card on Roku 2 players likely negates, or sufficiently minimizes, the need for a storage meter. Have there been reports/comments suggesting that Roku 2 users (with SD cards) are coming up against memory limits? With earlier model Roku players, the trade off may not be worth it. In any other words, how much memory/resources would the meter itself consume?
