Per your last two comments, what specific streaming channels and content titles have you observed this behavior on? 

I'd like to take a closer look. Feel free to send me a PM with more details. 

Cheers,
Tanner

Amazon and Plex, for example.

Re: Night Mode not working

I had a roku ultra 4640 but gave that away so I can't test it now.  But, with that in the past surround audio would be converted on the fly to stereo for night mode.  That is, while I was watching something I could switch to night mode and I could see that my receiver went from receiving 5.1 to 2.0....

Re: 24p not working on Netflix

This decision is unacceptable.  The whole reason I have a roku is because my other device (shield tv) doesn't auto switch refresh rate for apps like Amazon Video or Netflix. Yes, the Netflix preview videos made things annoying but surely there's a workaround without crippling something that made Rok...

Re: [Official] OS 9.1 Release Notes

They're so concerned about bugs, afraid to affect a large % of users.  Why not just make a beta test option?  Those users who want to install an update right away can enable the beta.  Those users who want to wait for all problems to shake out can keep beta turned off.  Beta testing is basically wha...

Re: Roku OS 9 / Dolby fail?

I have a 4640x with 9.0.0 build 4084-29. It's connected via HDMI to a receiver, then to TV. The only problem I'm seeing is when trying to output Atmos from Amazon Video.  Sometimes it glitches and there's no audio.  Rewinding a bit will usually get it to output audio again but sometimes I have to do...

Re: FIX NETFLIX!!! FIX REFRESH RATE!!!!

The Apple TV has auto frame rate switching too, not enabled by default (same as roku), but yet the Netflix app for Apple TV doesn't switch frame rate except when actually playing a video. The Sony Vue app on Roku initially switched frame rate often but an update fixed that crap. So, it's not a Roku ...

Re: FIX NETFLIX!!! FIX REFRESH RATE!!!!

The Netflix UI is entirely unusable if you choose to turn on the match refresh rate setting (which many of us have pined for for years). However, the automatic Netflix trailers trigger the refresh rate switch and a switch back to 60hz when you move to another item in the user interface when you're ...

Re: Auto Adjust Display Refresh Rate Useless

App makers are the ones that need to fix the annoyances.  Sony Vue has done it.  In their first iteration of the new GUI it would switch framerate often - to 30fps, then to 60fps, then back to 30fps when you switched the station. Now it doesn't, except for 24p on-demand material.

Re: Private SpeedTest Channel ..... what happened?

My guess, and that's all it is since Roku has told me NOTHING , is that Roku may be working on their own method (channel or menu option) for performing a speed test.  They approached me in the past to get my code, but I declined. -JT They already do one if you go to network settings and ask it to c...

Re: Roku Ultra has greyish blacks

I had a 2016 Roku stick. It looked great for all of my content. Yesterday I connected my Roku Ultra because I wanted to watch Guardians of the Galaxy in UHD on Vudu. It is noticeably more grey and washed out. I'm using the same port as the stick and I tried switching cables but that didn't help. It...

Re: 24P with OS8

I've noticed that the main Roku UI doesn't revert to 60hz after watching 30fps content that it plays back at exactly 30hz. This also applies to other channel UIs with which you should be interacting at 60hz, such as Netflix, HBO, etc. 30hz is a much less zippier interface and the fact that it doesn...
