New Roku Player Firmware Now Available for Download

Paul Lilly

Roku recently rolled out new firmware -- version 2.9 b1509 -- for all models of its popular Roku player. The updated software introduces a handful of changes, including:

  • 1080p support for XR units
  • Hulu app optimizations for quicker trick play navigation and start of playback
  • Improved Hulu playback performance on networks with higher latency

The update also addresses a handful of bugs and quirks. For example, Roku says installing the software fixes "a subtle audio playback issue in UFC streaming," and it also squashes a bug that could result in a crash if an app tried to load an image greater than 1280x720.
