You might try http://www.avsforum.com/forum/18-dvd-players-standard-def/447795-denon-3910-owners-thread.html

No, all you need is internet access for the Roku. Just login on your brother's Roku--when you access Amazonm Prime on the Roku for the first time, you'll get easy instructions for doing this.

I had the 650s and they sounded muddy and dark until I bought a Burson HA-160 amp--they were much more lively and clear. I like the HD600's better, though (with the same amp).

I don't think you can roll back a Roku update. But if your universal remotes have "learn" capacity and you still have Roku remote, wouldn't that let you solve the problem?

Oppo does link to Gracenote for cover art on tagged music files, but sometimes the result is spectacularly wrong, no doubt a problem with Gracenote rather than Oppo.
