Is the Roku XD Model 2050x - still a viable device?

I'm new to Roku, so be kind.

I'm trying to help a friend setup a Roku XD Model 2050x. Is this still a viable device? I've been looking for docs on updating the Account but am finding scant info. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

@NH_Hills 

Thanks for the note.

Please be aware that the Roku XD 2050 is a much older device. However, we would be happy to see what we can do to help get you back up and running.

Please feel free to send me a PM with your Roku account email address and the serial number of your Roku device (printed on the side/back of the device) and I'll have our support team reach out directly to assist you further. 

Thanks,
Danny

Hi,  I realize the XD can no longer get OS updates. But a related question: none of the new models have the audio plug by which I am able to drive the audio thru to my Onkyo amplifier and listen to surround sound.

If I buy the Premiere model now, can I achieve the same by plugging the supplied HDMI cable into the Onkyo HDMI input and use another cable from the HDMI "out" into the TV monitor?

Tnx.

Thanks for the inquiry.

Yes, you can connect a Roku device to an AVR and then connect the AVR to your TV.

Thanks,

Thanks Danny.

It's working the way I surmised. The problem is, with the separate audio plug in on the earlier model, I was able to pump the audio through my speaker system, bypassing the TV monitor altogether.  With your suggested config, I now have to keep the TV on. Kinda of a waste.
