Netflix update?

It seems that sometime this evening the netflix channel updated automatically on my roku 4.  I do check for updates just about every day manually.

Anyway, I don't care for the UI changes.

I'm looking for a changelog but can't find one.  Does anybody know where I can find it?

while playing pressing the down arrow no longer takes you to audio and subtitles selection.  now when you press a button a menu appears top left.
also no longer does pressing the * button show the current info like resolution, audio, subtitles, top right.
But, I think the actual picture quality is better.

Re: Netflix update?

I just checked my Stick, and it doesn't do what you are describing, The * still enables the resolution display, and the down button enables the subtitles and audio menu. When I check the software version under the Settings/Get Help menu, it shows Netflix version 2015.1.1, and software version 247.20E04139A_4.2.132. Not sure if they differ between Roku devices, but the stick has the quad core processor same as the 4. 

I'll check my 4 later this evening.

Mine changed to that about a month ago or so on my Roku 3, stayed that way for about a week and then reverted back to the old design for whatever reason.

Re: Netflix update?

I checked my 4 last night and it also does not display this. Sounds like they pulled the update back.

Re: Netflix update?

I did double-check on my Roku 4, and there seemed to be no change. Mine shows version 4.2, build 132. (to show version, highlight on main screen, then hit * key.)

Re: Netflix update?

really weird then.  I also have 4.2 build 132 yet the user interface is certainly different from what it used to be.  I didn't change anything to cause it.
