Re: Five New Roku Models Leak — Three with 4K and Two with HDR

Still enjoying my Roku 4. Love that the new one will support HDR, which I've been wanting. But this time I plan on waiting and see what issues the new Roku's might develop.

Re: Dolby Digital Plus (DD+) to 5.1 converter

Just a suggestion, check out accessories4less. They are factory authorized to sell factory refurbished gear for Marantz, Denon, & Yamaha. I got my Marantz refurbished SR5009 from them over a year ago. If you have 4k displays, I suggest the 2015 or newer gear so you can passthrough your 4k video/...

Just a suggestion. Check out accessories4less for factory refurbished gear. I got my factory refurbed Marantz SR5009 from them and no problems. They carry Denon, Marantz, and Yamaha. If you have 4k displays, suggest 2015 models (example for Marantz 5010 or 6010 etc) or newer.

Re: Roku Hints at Fall Device Refresh with New FCC Filings

I'm hoping there will be a Roku 5 that supports HDR10. If not.....I'll just keep using my Roku 4 until something becomes avalible. Waiting on Oppo to come out with their universal 4K UHD disc player. Also waiting to see how the xbox Scorpio turns out next year.

Re: OK, got a Roku, what about PS Vue?

Just a note. You need to set up your Vue account first through Playstation then add the channel on your Roku & follow the instructions. Have your Playstation Vue accout open on a pc or tablet etc because you will need to enter a code given to you from Roku/Vue channel set up.

Re: Just a comment - I like the Roku 4

Loving my Roku 4. Since it does get pretty warm to the touch, I bought a $5 thin black metal candle holder that is 3.5" high and 5" diameter. Gets air flow all around now.
I'm hoping for a firmware update to support HDR.

Re: Roku 4 - No Picture

Is the power light on that is located in the front of the Roku 4 ? It does take a little bit of time to power up.

Filipino Channels ?

My wife is from the Philippines and I am wondering if there is a Filipino channel in the Roku's store ? She is from Luzon if it makes a difference. Any suggestions, she loves the comedy channels & of course the actors speak Tagalog ?

Re: Dolby Vision/HDR on Roku 4 ?

Is the Roku 4 HDMI port HDMI 2.0a ? Can't find that spec on Roku's site. Some reviewers state it is 2.0a. If it is, then its almost ready to be HDR ready.
