Roku announced three new versions of its Linux-based, Netflix-ready streaming IP media player, all running on less than two Watts and adding support for casual gaming. The Roku 2 HD ($60) supports 720p playback; the Roku 2 XD($80) moves up to 1080p; and the Roku 2 XS ($100) adds USB and Ethernet ports, as well as a motion-control remote and Angry Birds....
Today, Roku is launching the newest version of its streaming media box, the $99 Roku 3. While keeping a similar form factor to previous Roku set-top boxes, the latest in its series should be much faster and more responsive, thanks to hardware upgrades.
Anyone know of a way to mirror the screen from the Maxx HD to a HDTV or Roku box? Something like the apple airplay equivalent. I just got a Roku box and have been playing around with it and I have used apps like Twonky Beam and Juice, which will beam content like music or pictures or video that's stored on the phone to the Roku.
After what has been seriously way too long, Roku has just launched an official YouTube channel for most of its lil’ streaming boxes. The catch: Roku says the channel is only compatible with “current generation” devices, which they define as any box launched after July 2011.
I played around with a Roku a year ago, before giving it to a friend as a gift. One thing that I really liked was being able to watch complete episodes of Craig Ferguson's Late Late show on the Nowhere TV channel on Roku.
I bought a Roku 3 for us this year, but now Nowhere TV only seems to have a few clips - no complete shows.
Roku announced this morning it’s rolling out screen mirroring functionality in beta for “a select number” of Windows 8.1 and Android devices. The feature will allow these users to quickly mirror content on their devices to the big screen, including videos, apps, websites and more.
