Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

Okay, so now I'm a bit steamed. Very excited to have the HDMI problem fixed in regards to 1080i, HOWEVER, now I have a new problem that I've never had before. I got an error that said "HDCP unauthorised. Content disabled." I could hear the audio of what was playing, but couldn't see the vi...

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

Just got the new firmware.

Was the 1080i thing supposed to be fixed in this issue? I was pleasantly surprised to notice that it seemed to fix the issue with TV's that only supported 1080i. At least for the brief period I used it this afternoon.

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

@ Weezknight, What you are seeing is a bug in the new r7.00 firmware for the bcm2835 products including the RSS and the 2XS. A bug was filed more than a week ago. When you choose 720P or 1080P in the Display Type settings, you are asking for progressive. Your TV doesn't support either. The 6.2 soft...

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

This update has actually been worse than the catastrophic one and, frankly, seems to be more universal. The last one simply caused the Roku to spontaneously reboot. This one causes it to hang so I have to get out of bed, unplug the Roku, and plug it back in. Agreed. Past updates caused reboots whic...

Re: Roku 4 720p Frequency Settings and TH-42PHD7UY

As I mentioned up-thread, my money's on some kind of DHCP issue that hopefully an HDMI switcher (before the DVI converter) will address. Time will tell! Definitely an HDCP issue. I had another thread with an older Panasonic experiencing problems since v7.0 with the Roku Stick. I have even tried put...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Try dropping to 720p if you're on 1080p. I believe v7 software has a problem over gunning the HDMI at 1080p. I get this using a Stick (so no cable) though my TV reacts a little differently. Just got to wait for a fix, and drop res till then. Let us know if this works for you. @RokuShaun, is this on...

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

It most likely is a combination of Roku/TV not matching up correctly (though I have never heard of a HD TV not supporting 720p but supporting both 1080i and 1080p; afterall broadcast TV uses 720p or 1080i depending on the network). However, the firmware update is most definitely the reason the prob...

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

Changing the theme had no effect, when set to 1080HD the menu does not fill the screen and is definitely not at 1080 resolution. No problems before the V7 firmware. This sounds exactly what I'm experiencing with the streaming stick and my Panasonic TV since the V7 firmware. Even with the Roku set t...

which theme do you use? might try switching themes on the stick and see if that helps


Tried this already with no improvement, but it was suggested by a mod, so I'll give it a go again when I stop home on my lunch break.

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

Try switching to a different theme. There were some changes made to some of the themes. The overhang was removed from some of the themes. Tried that to no avail. It is specifically related to this specific TV & Streaming Stick combination. The stick works fine on another TV in the house, and al...

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

Just got the 7.0 firmware on my Roku 2XS last night. Seems to run ok, but did run into 1 problem. My 2XS' display type has always been set to 1080HD, after the 7.0 firmware the menu looked very blocky and did not fill the entire screen - definitely not the crisp display I was expecting. Tried power...
