I got the update on both of my Roku boxes last night. So far so good. The HD PQ is good but definitely not Blu-Ray. I would say it is about half way between a good upconverted SD picture and Blu-Ray. Kind of like what a Apple TV does. The added benefit is that the Roku box now does an excellent job upconverted non-HD movies to 720p. Also, like the Wii, the main screen contains "channels". None are available right now but according to a text statement after upgrading, channels are coming in early 2009. No bad and I'm sure over time things will improve.
