Just bought this one last week: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=1J8-000M-00001&nm_mc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel&cm_mmc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel-_-Content-_-text-_- Does anyone know what the difference is? I'm seeing that the one I bought has a "3100X-B" attached to the name.

@kidkobun: No difference other than yours didn't include two remotes and a HDMI cable. There's only one "Roku XS", so it's not a different model or anything.

@firebirdude: Thanks. I was reading that this bundle has Bluetooth remotes where as the other model has WiFi remotes. Though I could be wrong.

@kidkobun: Nope. Both have bluetooth remotes. I know. It's confusing as all heck. They released all these different naming nomenclatures, then went back and reused the terms "Roku 1" "Roku 2" "Roku 3" etc with the current models. Very tricky.

Roku 2 XS was the only model to use Bluetooth remotes. Then they ditched that idea and released Roku's 1,2 and 3 with WiFi remotes.

I have owned 6 ROKUs and while I am the first one to tell you to buy a Roku at all cost. With today's announcement of the official YouTube on Roku 3, it's 5x CPU, other exclusive content and of course the headphone jack in the remote. Buy a ROKU 3 what ever you do, there are referb 3's around.

Will the XS accept the new-ish (within the last year) software update that the current models ship with?

@firebirdude: Thanks man, appreciate it. Now I feel like I got a lil' ripped off. I suppose there is always going to be another bigger, better deal right around the corner.

@ryharv: With the install base that they have, I'm sure that they aren't going to leave these models out like that. Not like the corporate slime bags who keep churning out new Android-based phones every quarter. "Hey, you just bought an HTC One X+, well here's three more. Have fun with your outdated phone for the next two years."

On Facebook Roku said "the (YouTube) channel is expected to be available on additional player models next year."

I don't know if that just means the current models or the second generation ones.

My brother has the YouTube channel on all his Rokus because he got it early, when it was still available, and it has remained available as he has added units.
