So, I can perform a manual check and get the interface from 1 to 1,439 minutes before I otherwise would?

Nah.

Well, some of us are serious about being early adapters. :)

I've been using the new interface since March 7. Does that qualify me as an early adopter?

The selection of which Roku 2's get the update at which time is probably a pseudo-random selection of serial numbers that aren't based on geography, at least not in pieces smaller than at the nation level.

I remember there was an upgrade a year or so ago where someone with two Roku 2's noticed that one got an update but the other said there was no update available, and it was a few days before that second Roku 2 got the update, and those Rokus were not only in the same city but also on the same internal LAN (so they appeared to be from the same IP address from outside the LAN).

There are two good reasons for pacing out the upgrades:

1. If a problem is detected before the software upgrade is fully deployed, the upgrade process can be stopped and so limit (at least to some degree) how many customers experience that problem. (Some problems just don't show up in the lab for whatever reason. For example, DHCP compatibility can't fully be tested because Roku doesn't have very model of HDTV in house.)

2. By pacing out the upgrades, the upgrade server(s) doesn't (don't) up and die under a sudden intensive load, but that load is spread out over a week or several weeks so the peak access isn't so high.

That means there are some who will get their upgrades first, some will get theirs last, and the bulk will get theirs somewhere in between.

And then there are people like me who will not get the upgrade because we are still on the Roku 1. :cry:

New update works good on the XS. Not as fast as the Roku 3 of course but its a nice update. Now I need to buy more Roku 2 models a la cheap!

Edit: only one of two got updated. :)

I got the update on 1 of 2 HD boxes around 2-5pm today... (the other box is giving me an error for server at the moment) no big deal.

But, as I knew. I HATE IT. I really hate it :( It seems jerky and not fluid when moving the cursor from channel to channel. I also wish the fastforward/rewind button would jump like 5 channels like it used to. Instead of just saying in the same horizontal column. PELASE look into that. I know it's not a big deal, but I am used to jumping multiple chans with a certain amount of pushes and be on the exact chan I want without looking (I have a few chans I use often, so I can be on one and used to hit the fast forward button like 4 times and jump a few times to my other favorite channel)


thanks, otherwise, everything else is pretty cool, but I hate the whole homescreen. It reminds me of the flower hulu interface, it's too easy to press right or left too much on be on something completley flower different. I'm not happy.


The only positive of the home screen update, it left my chans in the order they were. I have 263, so I had them set the way I wanted and it took alot of time. I have 2 boxes, so lol

Gee, I wonder where I heard that before? Oh yeah, it was only mentioned by pretty much every beta tester. :roll:
