So, new stuff:
System Restart option added
Targeted advertising by default added (with opt out)
Audio options to control digital out formats and stereo/surround including 'Auto' settings added
New Roku Media Player app
Good info thanks. Wasn't sure if I too was imagining some operations being faster
. And some channels that often used to load the video icons one at a time now seem to display them all at once after a pause.
Interesting that some System Settings have been moved to a 3rd-level menu, to de-clutter the 2nd-level Settings menu.
Coincidentally I was re-organizing some family Roku's yesterday and got hit by the update mid-stream. Seems that moving a channel icon on the home screen is now the second option in the context menu, whereas before it was the third option from the top. In general I like that it now takes one less key press, but I kept getting tripped up since my finger already has the muscle memory to rapidly press *
and another Down
(which now goes to "Remove channel" instead of "Move channel").
Another change seems to be that the instant replay button on the remote now seems to rewind further than before (I didn't measure it, but perhaps it was previously ~10 secs and now it's ~30 seconds?). Anyone else seeing this?
With the new firmware update the RMP seems to have come in as a new channel based on the location I found it on my list.
I too noticed that the existing Roku Media Channel gets moved to the end of the home screen after the update. Not a big deal, but annoying to have to move it back to its original position on the channel grid for all family Rokus one by one (x 25).
I had a little problem with a couple of channels freezing up and causing my 2xs to reboot when I clicked to watch them but after removing and reinstalling them they're back to normal. Can't say that was the result of the update but it was a suspicious coincidence. I like the restart. -wes
I also had a couple of channel glitches with a few Rokus requiring re-install, but I think most were happening right
before the update?
