I would guess that the apps in the 1 and 2 are in the firmware and not in any distinct SoC. That's just speculation on my part as I only have a Roku 3.

I've had no problems with 3D since the updates (I've had two versions of 1.34 since I got my M501D-A2r). I had the smooth motion turned off by default.
