Has anyone actually reported the problem? I'm not really using the SB Radio so technically I'm not entitled to using that feature which is why I haven't reported it.. but if anybody has the SB Radio, that's certainly something that should be fixed (and since both devices share the same codebase thos...

Shouldn't this subforum be closed?

Before the People of Good Streaming Taste descend upon me - I realize Roku didn't promise me or anybody else that they'd implement any feature - but that goes along with my arguments. 1) Since the public 3.0 firmware release there's been basically no activity on the firmware front (yeah I know about...

This happens to me on regular, but lengthy intervals (one to two times a year). The clock gets completely out of whack and the only thing to get it back is unplugging the power. This happend to me yesterday (Sunday) and unfortunately since the intervals are so long, I forgot that I also had to reset...

I do have the problem in the title, but not the problem you describe in the actual post. I have my roku connected to a stereo with a timer and I have two alarms on the Roku.. one from 6 - 8, the other from 8 - 10 so that covers the entire range of when I get up (other than holidays and week-ends) an...

Don`t fall into the trap of thinking you have all the facts. Comparing apples and oranges doesn`t work. Why apples and oranges? The DMA1000 is just as much an audio streamer as the Roku.. the latter just has a display so you can use it without a TV. Of course, I'm open to actual facts (best coupled...

I got a Zyxel DMA-1000 recently, and it, too supports FF/RW from my TwonkyMedia server - and not only for audio but video as well. And it even costs less than the Soundbridge 1001...

So, from a technical perspective it's clearly feasible - and so we wait for it to be implemented.

As an engineer I find myself often wondering who the heck had the final word in a product's design. Nowadays you find so many half baked devices on the market but I refuse to believe that the deficits always stem from the design teem not seeing things through and engineering not seeing features thro...

Ticketing system for feature requests

I guess this would be the mother of all feature requests - and it doesn't even concern the units directly. How about using a standard troubleticket system that allows for feature requests as well? Users could then fill out a feature request form, and Roku would have an easily accessible list of all ...

That's because they run on batteries. But so does your regular PC which runs on AC power and has no battery ;) I think it would be best to have the "real standby" behavior as an option, so those that prefer the short startup time can still have them.. I'm sure that would alleviate the con...

You must not have a cable/Satellite box. I have two.. however, they really shut down and take an annoyingly long time to boot the OS and start decoding again. But what you said just goes to show that manufacturers should put a lot more effort into power saving. Even notebooks shut down all network ...

But is it an Roku OEM product or something else entirely? The featureset and some items in the technical data (e.g. Roku Control Protocol) seem to suggest it's still a Roku product. Interestingly, the various Pinnacle sites list different things about the wireless capabilities.. e.g. in the UK it sa...

Since WPA(2) support was added in software, I figure this might be possible without a hardware upgrade, too: 802.11e/WMM Especially since the radio is only 802.11b (which reduces in some degradation of network performance if you run a g network), wireless QoS could help to migitate these effects and...

An USB port would be great, as would a power button (which triggers a real standby where the WiFi is off). Depending on when any new hardware might be released, the WiFi should be 802.11n or g (I know the device doesn't need the bandwidth, but while backward compatibility is a nice thing, it's still...

I wholeheartedly support this feature request - I think the Roku's standby is really beyond any reasonable standby.. it's the only device I know that besides the display really stays on all the way. Would this also speed allow my 11g network to run faster while the Roku was off? It depends on the ne...

I'd really like to see a station rollover after a number of connection timeouts / connection problems like Winamp has it. I've gone up to > 1000 connection attempts on one station that responds with 401 right now - Winamp tries once, then switches over to the next station in the playlist. Absent a P...
