As some Roku users already know, we have recently released a new app on Roku with completely revamped UI. Hope it is a better app. And as usual, love to hear your feedback for further improvements.

Enjoy watching more anime and drama shows!

Update on 09/28/2011:
Just added a few screenshots to give non Roku users an idea how it looks like.

Also, check out the original Roku forum topic

The app is great. It's more eye appealing. It's been a great improvement. Watching anime in HD is amazing. I would do it on my computer, but I have a Roku!

Looks goods.

The previous UI was barebones and finding a show was a problem. Even after finding the show you wanted remembering which episode you saw last was difficult without loading Crunchyroll on your browser. Said action defeating the point of watching via the Roku app in the 1st place.

With the current UI, viewing should be a much more pleasant experience.

??? yeah roku can do 720p to 1080p depending on the mode, I am not sure about the app for crucnhyroll however. i set up a box for friend and it does a great job with netflix in 1080p. Even if you only get 480p out of the box in an upscale it's better than streams on a cellphone/ipodtouch that have to use 360p low def. You might need to ask some that really knows more about the box... "sorry I am not much help"

chibi_chunky Roku support up to 1080p. its the content provider and your internet connection that will determine what Resolutions you can use.

Normally I leave about a 1 megabyte head room on my Internet connection for Roku when someone is watching 720p content.
nearly 3 megabyte head room when I use my 1080p projector.

It actually goes up to 1080p now, but for Crunchyroll 720p is the highest. I want to get a Roku really bad but with a computer connected to my tv in my room, I can' t decide if I really need it, though HD Anime would be amazing.
Edit: wow two other people replied while I was typing lol
