It's actually derived from the Bible and by Violet Fane in her poem Tout vient ß qui sait attendre.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

End of May for Roku 2.

I called Roku yesterday and the XR model will not get the upgrade, according to one of their tech support guys.  Didn't seem positive, so I'll keep trying.

According to the Roku website:

 

"All Roku customers with Roku 2, Roku HD (#2500) and Roku LT players will get this updated interface absolutely free."

 

That would leave out the XR, XD and the original (model #2000) HD.

Bigger bummer for me, Pete.  I bought a Sammy sound system with an integrated BD player that isn't gonna get the NetFlix upgrade and I need an optical feed for it, which he Roku 3 doesn't have.  I like the sound system and it looks like I gotta buy a new BD player to get the full NF upgrade.  Didn't really want the Roku 3, but if it had an optical out, it would have solved my problems.  I could buy an Apple TV box, but don't want one of them either.  I guess I'll buy a Sony BD player and just suffer with the hideous remote.

Solved the problem with the HT audio problem.  I bought a WD streaming box.  Gets NetFlix content in the new format and has a well laid out remote.  Cost $99.  Only box or BD player with a Toslink out port in the local Best Buy (not counting all the crappy stuff).

Well, the WD box didn't work out well and I returned it.  Bought another Sony BD player that has more features than most streaming boxes.  No optical output, so I figured I'd buy an analog to optical adapter.  By this time, I was so frustrated I didn't know what else to do.  Sat around and pondered the whole problem again for awhile and my thoughts turned to the Sammy E6500s that I have.  They have optical outputs and I'd been assuming that having 2 Sammys stacked would create remote control problems.  Just for the halibut, I stuck an E6500 on top of the Sammy home theater box and, once again, learned that assumptions usually don't turn out well.  Seems the remote for the HT box and the remote for the E6500 aren't compatible!  Problem solved!!!
