list of Roku model numbers?

Sat Sep 03, 2011 2:21 pm

What is the best method for identifying the Roku2 vs Roku1 devices?

Is there a comprehensive list somewhere that I can use with roDeviceInfo to make sure I'm on the right device type?
Two of my older roku devices return "N" as the first character, one (the one I got at RadioShack) returns 2050x and the Roku2 returns 3100x. What do the other Roku's (the cheaper Roku2s) and the original original Roku return? What about the WallMart version, netgear, and other branded Roku's?

I'd go with the firmware for now - Roku1 will get it's 3.0 release, roku2 starts at 4.x

The lower model Roku 2s are 3000x and 3050x. The original "Netflix Player" returns N1000. It would be nice to have a comprehensive list.

Found this list on Wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roku

hopefully the getmodel() is accurate for this. I guess I will switch to using the software version numbers - hopefully I can count on the first number to the left of the decimal point 013.00E02207A being the deciding firmware version on all models and all software releases in the future...

If I were a betting man, I'd bet you could use the first two digits of GetVersion to identify Roku 1 vs. Roku 2, as it's "01" on Roku 1 and "02" on Roku 2...
