Which Rokus for a testing lab?

I am wondering which Roku devices I should absolutely have for testing my channel. I have the new 2016 Roku Streaming Stick and the old Roku 2 (XD)..Which other units do I need to make sure my channel is up to snuff?

Re: Which Rokus for a testing lab?

<scratches head> well that depends on your budget - are you a church mouse operation (like yours truly) or have other people's money to spend?

Both of yours #3050 and #3600 have OpenGL, so foremost should be getting a non-OGL one - a 27xx (e.g. Roku1) or 5xxx (RokuTV) model. Minor graphics (in)abilities may surprise you.

Next would be a 4xxx player.

See this https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f ... 15#p536994 for overview of player models in use.

Meanwhile, new evolutionary models 37xx, 46xx are coming in September - cue http://zatznotfunny.com/2016-08/roku-pr ... -plus-hdr/
