Re: New Roku box. WTF Netflix auto preview?

Just drop Netflix and get on with life. I did. I haven't seen anything on Netflix in going on two years. Plenty of other options. That's my thought at the moment. I did that with cable many years ago. I still remember how overjoyed I was to turn in that box. 500 channels of bobblehead attractors an...

Re: New Roku box. WTF Netflix auto preview?

Thanks for the comment. I don't really care who's fault this is. It is simply intolerable. Either the Roku goes or Netflix goes. Now that I think of it I could be outside in the polar vortex cold weather having less stress. Maybe I will bring back the Roku AND cancel Netflix. :D

New Roku box. WTF Netflix auto preview?

My old Roku 2 box worked fine except when I watch NBC News channel it would buffer during every advertisement, making them take 2 times as long. So I just updated! to a faster new Roku box. Yay.. faster ads! (Snore)  Now there is this ANNOYING Netflix auto preview (Arg!) that I can't turn off. It wa...

Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

Thank you Basil, for the great information from actual real life experience. Great value to me. :D

It would be perfect IMHO if Roku goes back to infinite pause capability. YMMV

Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

Thanks for the reply. I was also looking at the Fire TV Stick with Google's Chromecast. They are pretty cheap. Anyone with any experience with them? Don't want to end up in the same boat. None of the reviews of the Roku mention the auto-un-pause feature I am now experiencing.

Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

This just ticks me right off. Is there some other competitors box that I can buy to not have it exit me out of what I was in the middle of each time? Very annoying. I would gladly spend $100 to end this problem forever. I paused because I wanted to pause, not because I wanted to reboot to home scree...
