Re: No DD Audio w/Roku 4 and Samsung Smart Hub

Update I returned my recently purchased Roku 4 and exchanged it for a Roku Ultra. The audio issues I was having getting DD audio via HDMI through the Samsung hub on the Roku 4, do not exist with the Ultra. Whatever the audio codec, passes fine with the Ultra. So the underlying problem is with the Ro...

Re: No DD Audio w/Roku 4 and Samsung Smart Hub

Problem solved. It was my receiver. I now have the Roku audio set to Dolby+ as I'm using SPDIF. When my receiver sees a DD audio stream, it switches to DD. Problem is when the next stream is PCM, it won't switch back to stereo, hence no audio. Workaround was to set a button with a sequence on my Log...

Re: No DD Audio w/Roku 4 and Samsung Smart Hub

That's incorrect.  The Samsung can process multi-channel audio from an external source and pass it through the Samsung's optical output.  It does so with my Roku 2 as well as my Apple TV.  The problem is inherent with the Roku 4. Here's further testing I've done.  My audio/video processor (Integra 8...

No DD Audio w/Roku 4 and Samsung Smart Hub

Just replaced my Roku 2 with a Roku 4 as I recently got a Samsung 4K TV.  I attached the Roku 4 to one of the available HDMI inputs of the Samsung Smart Hub and noticed that, the digital audio that's being passed to my receiver is 2 channel stereo.  I then checked to be sure that the Roku was set to...

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

I'm having trouble getting the games as of right now. It says I'm blacked out for every single game I try to access. I was watching the New York games earlier with no problem, but now I can't watch any game. Is there something I could do? If you're in the U.S., Fox has the rights to the 4PM EST gam...

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

I too was pleased and surprised with the picture quality and limited number of restarts during Friday's games. I mostly watched the Yankees/Mets on WWOR but also checked in on Strasburg and Manny in Boston. It would be nice to hear from the guys at Roku for them to tell us that some improvements wer...

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

I watched the entire Yankees/Orioles game, last night, on the YESHD feed and there was not one single instance of rebuffering. And the picture quality was quite good, as well. I have the 2.6 firmware. Good job Roku, and hopefully this is an indication that we will continue to have great viewing expe...

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

I updated to the new firmware and have been watching the Yankees/Indians game on the YES feed since the game began. I've not had any rebuffering issues, whatsoever. So far so good.

Thanks, Roku.

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

I've been watching for about 3 hours, mostly the Yankees/White Sox on YES, but did check in on Phillies/Mets on WPIX and now am watching Red Sox/Orioles on MASN. I am happy to report that tonight has been the best viewing experience for me since MLB.TV became available on Roku this season. I did not...

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

Trying to watch the NY Yankees feed of their game with Baltimore. It it excessively rebuffering. Quite annoying and makes it very difficult to watch the game.

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

Problems watching the Yankees-Angels game. When I try the YES (away) feed, all I get is the YES opening and then it continues to rebuffer. Cannot get beyond that. When I then try the home feed, cannot get any audio.

Re: MLB.TV Public Beta Feedback

PQ looks good. It rebuffered on me one time, on an archive. So does this mean that it's out there for everyone, not just the beta group? Need to watch some of tonight's live games in order to put it through its paces.
