Force Roku TV OS Update?

How can I force my Roku-enabled TV to update to the latest OS (in this case 9.4)?

Try going through the motions to add a wireless speaker.  If there is an update available it should install that first.

Re: Force Roku TV OS Update?

There is a reason they only trickle new Roku software out slowly, especially at first -- so that problems not caught during beta testing can be reported and fixed before they affect thousands and thousands of installations.  Sometimes a bunch of channels have to update their apps to deal with the Roku update, and despite having ample notice to take care of this befire the Roku rekease, many of them struggle mightily.  Even with the gradual release, the changeovers I've experienced to 9.2 and 9.3 have been painful. 

In all honesty, I'm not in a hurry to get 9.4.

I know why they roll it out slowly but I wish they'd give the option to get it sooner like a lot of updates do now. Or if I could sign up for beta, that would be great.

I just want AirPlay 2
