Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of time

It's not PMS (Plex Media Server) and it's not hidden. "Preview" is a Preview of the official Plex app you can load as a private channel: https://forums.plex.tv/t/roku-previews-beta/386800   The 'Official' app hasn't been updated in a long while (or I haven't noticed, during a manual update...

Just a guess, but I don't think Rarflix is actively supported anymore. 

No, it's quite deprecated, now to the point of failure.
At this point if it works, it works, if it doesn't, it doesn't. There is nothing more to be done.

Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

Just fire up the new Plex Preview App. It breaks Roku TV power saving features as well as 'Phone Home', 'cause it NEVER goes back home, at any time, for any reason. Developers wanting to disable 'Phone Home' need only contact Plex... they've cracked the code. Interesting. I found a post in the Plex...

Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

No need to force this feature that is unwanted by a lot of people, I too like to come back and resume whatever show I am watching on any app.  There is no need to boot me to the home screen just because some designer made this change.  I'm really sick and tired of things like this being forced and ...

Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

I feel over the past couple of years that Roku is just playing the shell game with its offerings.. Taking a feature away here, adding it there and calling it an exclusive.. taking away a along ports on one model but throwing in an enhanced remote.. And the only new features to the players are faste...

Re: Netflix auto play GRRRRRRRRRRRR

And frankly, I find myself watching less and less Netflix as time goes on.  I wonder if I'd miss it... After their last price hike, I decided we weren't watching Netflix enough to keep it. Haven't missed it at all.  My life was so much better after cancelling Netflix Streaming it probably added 10 ...

Re: Roku Premiere hitting 232 degrees (pic)

232 degrees? Normal? Uh... no (unless you live on Mercury/Venus/Georgia in August). What you have there is a hockey puck hot enough to end the game when the ice melts. RMA or Out The Window (into a bucket of water - Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires!). Select the one that is most applicable in your ...

Re: Mpeg2 Support

Didn't they do that already?
(not looking at my 3, the 2HD is probably right out, but the Ultra is good to go)

'Deprecated' or 'Ancient' units may never see MPEG-2. The hardware aboard may be inadequate.
(a more experienced response is probably warranted here)

Re: Roku Eating 1 Gig An Hour

no that hotspot is not the endusers. i can create a hotspot for peeps if i chose, but the one already there is independent of my connection. that is why if you want it off you have to go to xfinity and shut it off. you cannot ad a password to it. it is a open hotspot. I 'opted out' of that option f...

Re: Roku Eating 1 Gig An Hour

actually the hotspot hardware built into their modems is separate from the rest of the hardware in it, so no it does not affect ones speed. in and of itself it is only 5 to 5.5 mbps down. The 'fine print'... is that total, or for each 'Rider'? Moot point. They'll have a real issue connecting to you...

Re: Roku Eating 1 Gig An Hour

agree 1,000% been meaning to look at modems compatible with xfinity. Wise. Here's another little known fact (Xfinity/Crapcast): If you live in a metropolitan area (downtown or thereabouts) that Xfinity/Crapcast equipment has set up a WiFi "Hotspot" for all their customers in range - to su...

Re: Roku Eating 1 Gig An Hour

i've gone through xfinity's setting in the modem / router and could not find anything.   I'm not surprised. Here's a tip for all working under an ISP Data Cap: Use your own equipment. Period. (I mean you can continue renting that modem, that'll cost you 24 thousand dollars - eventually - but from t...

Re: Roku Eating 1 Gig An Hour

don't get me wrong i appreciate the imput. it's just i'm pretty sure that setting does limit the impage quality used for all channels not just the main menu.  Not sure what type of router you have, but my ASUS RT-AC68R (Merlin) can sniff out and report exactly how much traffic is going to each thin...

Re: Why is Amazon Prime video so much clearer than BBCAmerica

Amazon Prime Video is in the bidness of delivering 'decent' quality movies and TV over the internet. BBC America is in the bidness of TV re-broadcasts, poorly compiled, edited and encoded, housed on backwater servers and run by the underpaid. Prime enjoys a fairly direct path to you ($$) - BBC-A may...
