Automatically there, gratis Roku, when I powered up my Roku 3, Saturday, May 9, 2015, pre-US Mother’s Day, to watch Day 2 of the Bangladesh v. Pakistan Second Test Match on Willow (via SlingTV). It was very pleasing to eye. Soothing. I, at once, knew it was new theme. Had to go find out. Cute. Well done Roku. Nice touch.

Happy Mother’s Day.


Now Have Roku “My Feed” On My ‘Old’ Roku 3 — Software v6.2 Build 3332.

As you can clearly see from the above images I now have, without doubt, the new Roku ‘My Feed’ feature. That is good. I just noticed it today. I took it for a drive and it works.

Here is the strange thing. My software version and build has NOT changed. Check the picture (above) and what I wrote in this April 8, 2015 post. Version 6.2 Build 3332. You can’t see it in the picture BUT it also say, to the left, that the software was last updated April 6, 2015.

STRANGE.

So, maybe it was a ‘My Feed’ ACTIVATION at the Roku ‘Mothership’ with the same software.

Just letting you know.

So YOU too should now have ‘My Feed’.

Check the software version.

That is all I can help. I don’t want to bother them and bust their chops as to how it suddenly became available without a software upgrade. I suspect that it was ALWAYS in Build 3332 BUT needed to be activated.

Are we cool? 


Roku “My Feed” & Voice Search NOT As Yet Available On Existing Roku 2 or 3 Players — Update Coming.

myfeedrokudsfsfYes, there was a new software update for the Roku 3 on April 6, 2015 — the day they announced Search, Voice Search and “My Feed” on the Roku 2 and Roku 3. That update was Version 6.2 Build 3332.

Though released on the same day as the announcement THIS update does NOT have voice search and “My Feed” for existing Rokus. The text Search, however, is there and works. Works well, though I still can’t get used to not having a ‘search’ within the “Streaming Channel” store. Yes, the search searches the ‘channel’ store BUT you have to exit the store to get to search. Not right. Very strange.

Voice search and “My Feed” right now are only available on Roku 2s and Roku 3 that shipped as of April 6, 2015. Got that?

The post April 6 models are: Roku 2 (4210R) and Roku 3 (4230R). [I have a Roku 4200X].

Another update is scheduled to enable these two features of existing Rokus.

Got this from the horse’s mouth no less. Hope it helps.

So be careful when reading some of the online posts talking about these new features. Existing customers don’t have them as yet.

This gets me worried about the Roku 4. Seems strange to refresh the Roku 2 & 3 if a Roku 4 is in the wings. My druthers is that it might have got pushed back into late Summer or early Fall.
