Plex and Crackle -like interfaces

Hello, I'm developing new roku channel and I want to build an interface like Plex and Crackle have. Question is which framework did they use for it? Did they use something like Marmalade or did they use Scene Graph XML framework?

Re: Plex and Crackle -like interfaces

Unless I'm mistaken, Plex is using the 2D API. I believe Crackle is using the NDK, which would explain why its fancy version is only available on the Roku 2 and 3 (lower end boxes still have the old grid screen UI).
I'd imagine developing something like the new Plex channel would be much easier using the new SceneGraph framework, so I'd personally go that route.
