If not any suggestions on one that would be easy to update with current ...

Roku in an RV with Wireless Network and Power Down

I have an extra router laying around (Netgear N600) and I am thinking about setting up a little wireless network in my RV to use a Roku and Sonos. The router has a DNLA server built in with USB ports. If I install the router, plug in a USB hard drive and use a Roku streaming stick should this work? ...

Slow to Load Thumbnails....Roku, Server, Both?

I have been using both DS Video and Plex with my Roku 2 (newest model) and the thumbs for my video files load painfully slow which is kind of killing the cool factor and the ease of use. Is this a limitation of my server (Synology 212J), the Roku? A little of both? I also use DS Video and Plex with ...

Screen Mirroring for iPhone/iPad

From what I can tell with a bit of research the screen mirroring feature is only available on Android and Windows Mobile right now. Is there an expectation it will be available on iOS soon?

How do the Channels Determine Cable Eligibility?

Set up a Roku for a friend, I have a cable subscription with ESPN and added the channel to their Roku. Went through the log in process and it worked at my house. My assumption was that it knew my location and that I was on my internet provided by the same provider as my cable and therefore it worked...
