Re: Those Pesky Lower Four Remote Buttons

Why can't something be done to disable or reprogram these buttons?  Advertisers subsidize the cost of the Roku for that privilege.  They certainly aren't going to allow them to be reprogrammed to someone else's app. I too rarely hit those buttons.  Maybe once a year. The funny part with this is whe...

Re: You Tube TV jacking UP price

Of course streaming is turning into old sat/cable. Prices always go up but so did sat/cable (imagine how much that is now). Though with streaming the provider does not provide you the box or dish, does not need techs to go out to homes etc so you think it would be somewhat cheaper to maintain but no...

Re: Roku Ultra - HDCP Unauthorized... AGAIN!

I see this issue once in a long time. Switched to the belkin hdmi 2.1 cables (they are expensive and short at $30 but have 48gbps vs 18 available) and have not seen it yet.

Re: Roku Ultra 2017 Remote Control and Avera TV

All roku has to do is make it like the sideclick does where you hold a combination button down, then select the button you want to program (power) and then use another remote to teach that button what to do.

Re: ROKU screen flickering all of a sudden

It's just a troubleshooting step to help isolate the issue. The problem is that not all HDMI switches do what they say, as in supporting HDCP 2.2 and 4K/60 properly. And for whatever reason, Roku 4K players seem to be sensitive to the HDMI handshake being less than perfect. My Roku 4 worked perfect...

Re: Roku Ultra Remote Questions.

If it cannot detect your tv it does display a search so you can lookup your manufacturer. But no, you cannot turn off roku (only roku 4 had that feature as it had a fan inside).

Re: [Official] OS 9 Release Notes

I was curious if there was something in common with the people experiencing the loss of multi-channel audio here... I just went into my 4640's audio settings for the first time since the OS upgrade. Audio was set to "Auto". I changed it to "DD+/DTS", but I haven't run anything t...

Thank you for your reply, much more than I got from Roku technical support so far.
I've read the topics regarding this issue and it seems it's been happening for some months now, maybe they will never find a fix?

Seems fixed with OS 9.

Re: No sound after unplugging headphones from remote

Can anyone who has gotten OS 9 comment on whether this bug persists in that update? I am not experiencing the issue with v9.x Of course, I didn't experience the issue with 8.x either. Yeah, thanks, but I guess I should've been more clear rather than assuming the obvious...I'm looking for feedback f...

Re: [Official] 2018 Fall Launch - Roku Ultra + JBL Headphones Feedback

But it's not a "problem". It was a decision to remove it for cost savings, which they used to lower the price of the Ultra. They won't be adding it via software (not certain it can be done, might require a chip) because they would have to pay a licensing fee to Dolby, which they don't wan...

Re: Headphones glitch

Roku messed a lot up with firmware 8.1. Looks like they need more QC but we know that not going to happen.
