Roku - v 8.0.1

This is a simple inexpensive driver that provides IP control of the Roku Media players.

It is compatible with the Roku 3, HD, XD and XD-S and the Roku 2 range of media players. It provides IP control of the Roku on-screen menus and also allows you to quick launch any of the applications on the Roku via the colored or numeric buttons on the Control4 interfaces (including iOS apps).

As it's an IP driver there's no IR bug that can get dislodged and that's one less IR port you need to use on the back of the controller. Like all our drivers the cost is per project not per Roku player. So if you have four Roku players in a project you only need one license. 

This driver will also work with NOW TV boxes.
