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.
