Re: Netflix auto play GRRRRRRRRRRRR

I'm revisiting this to say that my Fire TV box (*not* stick, those are silly), 2nd generation, continues not to do the auto play crapola on Netflix.  It never has, not since I first got my first one a couple of years ago. And my Roku 3, my last remaining Roku, does do the auto play thing.  (Again, m...

Re: Netflix auto play GRRRRRRRRRRRR

So the answer is "either deal with it or dump Netflix"??? Wrong-o.  I found the answer:  dump Roku.  Get an Amazon Fire TV.  Netflix on Fire TV doesn't do that.  Fascinating, eh? Seriously.  The Fire TV is so much better of a streaming device, it's not funny. This is in fact all Netflix's ...

Re: Hisense 32H4C Freezing

A couple of years ago I bought a 40H4C.  Out of the box, it had the problem of random restarts connected to loss of wifi. They fixed it under warranty, of course; the main board was bad. I suspect you're in a similar situation. This is a 2015 model, correct?  The board is easy to replace, if you can...

The 25% is also happening on other devices . My Samsung Blu-ray player would do it also . Usually it is the network connection that's dropped .

Re: Roku 2 and Netflix do not play together well...

It appears that Roku 3 users do not have a problem with Netflix except lately they cannot play movies and get a startup movie spin that loads only to 25%. Out of my four Rokus in the house (two 3s, a 2, and a TV), only one of the 3s did the "loads to 25%" thing. While it's hardwired to ne...

Now, the good news is that we are only talking about investments of $100 or less to upgrade.


You conveniently ignore those of us who have multiple Rokus in the house.

And what of us TRUE freakos who bought <gasp!> a Roku TV ON TOP of the multiple Roku 3.

Re: Hulu trying an ad free tier

It's unfortunate though that Hulu's ad-free plan is more expensive than Netflix Well, the devil is in the details. For $7.99/month, Netflix offers two streams. For $11.99/month--the same price as Hulu--Netflix offers four streams. When I cut pay TV and upped my broadband speed, I also upped my Netf...

Re: Roku TV Questions

I thought about getting a Roku TV--the interfaces are nice and very simple--but it occurs to me that I'm much, MUCH more likely down the road to want a new Roku than to want a new display. If I tie my display to my Roku like how Roku TVs do things, I figure I'm eventually going to have to either swa...

Suggestions--channels and partner logins

I have three, soon to be four, Rokus in the house. I just got my first 3, soon to get another. (I'm aiming directly at cord-cutting here.) And I will no doubt end up replacing my two 2s with 3s, and repurposing the 2s to family. If something beyond the 3 comes out, I will no doubt chase after that a...
