Does anyone know if you can change the DNS manually to these new boxes? I know the previous boxes did not have hat option.
This is the only reason I went to Apple TV so I can change the DNS without changing it in the router.
No there's still no option to manually set the DNS. From an interface perspective my Roku 2 (2015) looks and feels about identical to my Roku 3 (2013).
Since they apparently have the same internal hardware they're both nice and snappy. Unlike the Roku Streaming Stick which is sluggish - particularly in the new Netflix UI.
