Re: Battery Life on Remote

It's the new nature of the new beast. My Roku Ultra remote gobbles up and spits out batteries like candy through a spoiled child (not as severe as described above - that sounds like an RMA to me). I've never had the headphones plugged in. The remote becomes possessed by Satan at times, comes complet...

Re: Roku + Netflix questions

That same link takes me to the Express + (Plus):

... and just like my old Roku 2 HD - there it is. A special 8mm to RCA cord (included - I hope) facilitates the connection.

Is there some website/model funny bidness happening, or what?

Re: CLOC Time and Weather Missing

Does anyone know how to regain the weather, humidity and wind on the CLOC app screensaver.  When I first installed it, it worked great for several months and then all of a sudden, I only get the time stamp.  I've also tried to download the "private" Cloc app today, however, it is not show...

Re: How do I disable ads on my homescreen?

I hate ads more than any of yaz and ya'll is just trainees in ad hating!  I remove "...by viewers like you - Thank You" from my PBS material! I would rather see that home screen ad, than the giant black hole removing it would leave. I hardly ever even notice that ad, but am annoyed when I ...

Re: New forums?

There are 52 weeks in a year and a week goes by every 7 days (pretty much forever). Was there any indication of which of the coming weeks was the target?

(yes, rhetorical, 'cause Coming Weeks means the same thing as Coming Soon, and we all know how painful that can be)

Weather Nation is ate up with the volume disaster dumass syndrome:

Ads/Random - 400+db breaks my eardrums and blows me through the bay window.

I stopped installing WN a year or two ago when it became fairly obvious they just didn't give a ****.

Re: Weather Radar

The MyRadar App on FireTV, as you know, is a Radar App all others on Roku should aspire to be. If there is such an animal on Roku - I too would love to know about it. I use the one on my phone, or MyRadar on FireTV, cause frankly, there ain't any on Roku I've found worth taking up a channel slot. I...

Re: Install Stock Roku Firmware

Weather dependent - How easy are Hockey Pucks to come by in your country? That Roku box doesn't weigh as much (wild guess), but at 80MPH they'll still knock out some teeth (guaranteed). I think we heard a lot of this kind of talk when a Roku Clone was being sold in UK in some capacity similar to you...

Re: Those Pesky Lower Four Remote Buttons

So once every few months I accidentally hit one of those "dang" buttons.. Good for you. I was hitting one of them every other day, but I found a perfect and very soothing alternative in what, for a few minutes of my time, results in a lifetime (the lifetime of the remote) of uninterrupted...

Re: Those Pesky Lower Four Remote Buttons

It is perplexing to me, the number of people that come to the defense of these buttons.  To me they were an insidious abomination.  I was instantly relieved to be rid of them. ...Besides offering one button access to the designated channels (which some people appreciate), they also serve as an addi...

Re: Night Mode not working

Oh, it's buggy for sure. Other than have it attenuate volume nearly to an unhearable level across the board, I can't see it's doing much. 'Levelling' works exactly the same, as in; not very well. The feature, generally speaking, is sorely needed, but the way it's implemented at this time doesn't do ...

Re: Those Pesky Lower Four Remote Buttons

Go ahead and try that with yours and let us know if it still works after you experiment with unknown (Chinese) circuitry (like walking a tightrope, drunk, over the Grand Canyon, with no net).

Personally we LOVE the way our remotes look post-op. The scars of life tell a story. Read it. Live it.

Not sure where to put this or if anyone is interested in replying to this, but I have a question about the internet speed.  I just got roku for my tvs and they seem to work well enough for my viewing experience.  However, when i look at my speed test on the xfinity website i am getting around 35 mb...

Re: Audio Leveling setting not persistent?

Roku Ultra App: Plex/Other (Many/Most/All) Frequency: Constant Symptom: Audio Leveling actually makes the audio quieter with no apparent "Leveling" in either 'Leveling' or 'Night'. Efforts to equalize voices and effects are useless (or at least it's not ever worked, to date). Workaround: T...
