Re: Issues reported

Those are his posts. You know I hate paraphrasers :lol: I interpreted his statement to mean they are shoehorning features onto old platforms that were not designed to support them. For instance, the ads and data collection that goes with them. The amount of design and testing of so many concurrent c...

Re: Issues reported

??? When did I say this?!? Last quote. This is the update cycle for a Roku 2 XS user (except Basil) -- release, instability, blame the user, deny the problem, rumors of a fix, eventual fix, repeat. With this release, after four months, we are in the 'rumors of a fix phase'. Mine (I only have one Ro...

Re: Issues reported

I do not know what happens in the background, but if Roku is collecting problems, they are not solving problems. The problems with the Roku 2 XS have been reported here ad nauseam since 2013 to no avail. I do not think this is for lack of effort, but I don't think the problems can be solved without ...

Re: Chromecasting quality vs. Roku channel quality

Reddice, no one knows why this happens. Lots of speculation, but no one knows. Bottom line? Does it matter why it happens? If it cannot be fixed, you either live with the Roku quality or get a Chromecast.

Re: Martin Shkreli is President,Chairman, & CEO of Roku Scam

They want you to provide the information to facilitate purchases. Roku makes money when you buy stuff, so they want to make that easy. Chat or phone support will provide that link, but you are correct that it is not easy to find this information. I suspect this practice is one of the main reasons fo...

Re: Want control over your cable bill? Move to Canada.

Personally I do not want armed troops patrolling the streets of the US but there is little chance of that as it would generally be against the constitution. Please cite the constitutional basis for this statement. Also often if an armed force is placed to "maintain" peace in an area all t...

Re: Cinemax is coming to Sling TV

maybe I only want HBO for part of the year when Game of Thrones is on and I want Show Time when Shameless is airing, but not the rest of the year. Very good point. At the end of my Comcast relationship, I felt like the programming and pricing were designed to ensure I paid for crap eight months of ...

Re: Cinemax is coming to Sling TV

I'm not saying it is bad, just not anything to get excited about. The same people that say CBS is not worth $7 a month (or Hulu sans ads at $12) should be saying Cinemax is not worth $10. Why? CBS is available over the air in higher quality for free and a lot of the Hulu content is also available O...

Re: Don't sign up for subscription services from within Roku

Maybe this is something obvious to many, but I just realized it. I signed up for Hulu from within Roku, and it turns out that you can't use the service outside of Roku! Non-Roku Hulu apps won't recognize your Roku-based Hulu account. The reverse is not true. Sign up for Hulu from the website, and y...

True, but only Gen 1 which is 1080p has the Optical TOSLINK output with plain DD 5.1. Gen 2 which is 4K only has an HDMI output.

I want 4K and an Optical Audio output that can transcode DD+ to DD !!! :)


Why? Is it for older compatibility or is there some other reason?

Re: Cinemax is coming to Sling TV

Cinemax is the red headed stepchild of HBO. While some may like it, it isn't that big of a deal. The linked article is put out by Sling themselves, so it looks more enthusiastic than an outside observer would see it. I suppose it is good news it is only $10 vs the $15 of HBO. Red heads are hot. Did...
