Re: OS9 and remote issue

As soon as i updated to OS9 my remote constantly stops communicating with my Roku. If i pull a battery and put it back in it will usually start working for a few min. This never happened before the update. I have a Roku ultra 2017. Anyone else seeing this or have a fix. Thanks This issue happens to...

Re: One account on Pandora???

The ability to switch accounts was added when Pandora upgraded the channel from list view to the grid layout for stations.  Two or more accounts could login and then switch between them without having to re-enter the password.  We just noticed this ability is no longer available, as well.  Hopefully...

Re: Block Ads With Adult Content

The ad did not include nudity. I didn't see it, but still know it did not. An ad for a show that includes nudity is not the same thing as an ad that includes nudity. You cannot add Showtime without a credit card (even free trials require you to give a number), so the app cannot be added accidentall...

Re: Block Ads With Adult Content

Static ads (which are the only types on the home page) cannot have "adult content" unless they are pornagraphic (which are not shown on ANY page). They are far more likely to "stumble into" (quotes intended) videos with adult content than ads. And no, there is no way to block pa...

Block Ads With Adult Content

Is there a way for me to block ads on the home screen or in the screensaver that contain adult content?  My kids use the Roku and the last thing I need is them stumbling into the Showtime ad I saw last night.

Thanks.

Re: Blank Screen and Sputtering Sound

Thanks for the response! I have a Roku 2XS and didn't realize that the power supply from that was compatible with my SoundBridge.  I took the power supply from my Roku 2XS and plugged it into the SoundBridge and it worked fine!  I then plugged the old power supply back into the SoundBridge and it fa...

Blank Screen and Sputtering Sound

I have a Roku SoundBridge M1000.  (Based on some reading here, I believe it's the M1001 model that's labeled as an M1000.  The connections are all in the back and not the end caps.) Recently, it has started making a sputtering sound that I can best describe as a helicopter sound.  When this happens,...

Roku 3 - YouTube Live Videos

Does the Roku 3 support playing live YouTube videos?

I tried to watch a live YouTube video on my Roku 2XS this evening, but it wasn't supported. So, I was curious if the newer models supported it.

Thanks!

Re: Hulu Plus has not worked all day on my Roku HD

I am experiencing the same problem. The Hulu Plus loading screen appears and it seems to be loading, but then the splash screen never goes away. All I can see is the Hulu Plus logo. It sounds like I can move my cursor in the background and actually click "OK" on things, but nothing ever ap...

Audio Player - Very Long Load Time

I am working on an application that plays streaming audio using the roAudioPlayer object. When I execute the play() method, it takes a very long time to start playing the stream. The last test I ran took a total of 99 seconds from the time play() was executed until audio was heard (and the "sta...

Amazon Instant Video - Missing Videos

This morning, I noticed that all of the episodes I purchased for a particular show (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse) have gone missing from the video library on my Roku. Does anyone know what would cause this? I select my video library and drill down to the show and season. Once there, it tries to load the l...

Re: Roku now will not link.

I encountered the same problem. My Roku was working fine this afternoon. Around dinner time, I made the mistake of checking the channel store to browse the game selection. It prompted me to link my account. I thought that was fishy, so I backed out. At that point, all my channels were gone. Just rec...

Re: Poor Picture Quality Starting 7/9

Thank you for the prompt response! I rebooted my Roku as you suggested and the picture quality problems went away.

For what it's worth, I had to reboot by unplugging the power cable for 60 seconds. I didn't see a reset button on the bottom of my Roku.

Thanks again for your help!

Poor Picture Quality Starting 7/9

Starting this morning (7/9), I noticed that the picture quality on my Roku is no longer as good as it used to be. I am seeing lines across areas where there is a lot of motion. The best way I can describe it is that it looks like interlaced video that isn't deinterlaced properly. When there is very ...
