    Just added PBS to "My Channels". Great lineup in the PBS menu.

    This is a really great addition to the ROKU lineup. I rewatched the wonderful Johnny Carson episode of American Masters last night.

    But it isn't available for all Roku's. It won't load on my Roku XD (2050x) as that is a Gen 1 Roku.

    Same here, I commented on Roku's user forum that instead of updating their firmware on older boxes they want you to trash them and buy new ones. I know this model fits how a lot of service providers operate, but it still sucks for consumers. I have a streaming device less than 4-years old and not allowed to add 1080p channels to watch list. (PBS, VUDU)

    True, but some of the really good shows are not shown on PBS/ROKU. Like Are You Being Served for one.
