I had read that too. Confusing in the conspicuous absence of "1080p60" mentioned by the powers that be anywhere on the Roku web site, at least that I could find. It is also the only official sentence that one could stretch to include 1080p60. Wishful thinking? It is curious that Roku would not claim this capability. Why not? Also, I don't automatically believe what others claim they think they have when there are plenty who disagree.
Who to believe? Since I can't test to see if my Roku 2 XS can do 1080p60, and there is ample conflicting evidence, I wouldn't bet one way or the other. I need more than a very small subset of unknown individuals making claims that no one else on the internet has, including Roku, before accepting it.
