Re: tcl roku tv youtube issue

Fwiw I'm not having that problem on my TCL Roku tv, you might try turning on Fast tv start in Settings > System > Power, that puts the tv in sleep mode instead of shutting down I think, which might allow YouTube to sync better, also check for updates on Settings > System > System Updates to see if t...

Re: Roku stolen. Lost credentials

This isn't much help, but Roku has the option to require a pin (4 number code if I remember right) to make purchases, do you remember if you set one up? If you did your card should be safe at least.

Re: Modem/Router Recommendations for Roku Ultra w/HD TV and Xfinity internet connection?

The only problem with Roku (any model) and routers from what I've seen have been special characters in passwords, like $ & * and so on. The Netgear C7000 looks like a good modem/router combo, the only thing it's lacking is a usb 3.0 port, although it does have a usb 2.0 port and you probably won...

Re: Questions About Viewing Channels

I've had Sling, Playstation Vue, Directv Now and YouTube tv and none played the channels as you scroll through them, you stayed on your current selection until you chose another.

Re: Removing x rated content from recently added

There probably should be an adults only section for official channels that can be locked with a pin, but then there's the problem of deciding what's "adult". The two channels shown probably have plenty of nudity, but i doubt there's any actual sex that would qualify as an "adult"...

Re: Roku tv and updates

Sorry to necro this thread, but my Roku tv got the 9.1.0 update yesterday and just wanted to mention it because it actually failed the first time, meaning  the update seemed to have installed and the tv rebooted, but it was still on 9.0.0, even after another reboot. So, tried the update again and it...

Re: Sony Crackle app not loading

It's not working here also, I don't watch it much either, but even in my brief viewings it's the app I've had the most problems with, so this is more the rule than the exception for Crackle in my experience.

Re: Roku media player mess

Fwiw I use minidlna on openwrt to stream from my router and it works fine with RMP, so much so that I actually prefer it to Plex. Netgear dlna is Readydlna/Readymedia which I think is just their own roll of minidlna, so I don't know if you'd see any difference or not with stock minidlna, but if you ...

Re: Roku media player mess

I don't think there is a way to have functional dlna without a computer if you don't want to use RMP, as far as I know you'll still need Plex or Kodi or something similar even with a nas.

Re: Roku Express+ Double Blinking Light

I have owned a Roku Express+ for several months and am using it on an older television with RCA input. Everything was working fine until I turned on my tv a few days ago and could only get a blank gray screen on the input channel. I tried unplugging, paperclip resetting, and rebooting, but every si...

Re: Roku suddenly stopped working and letters keep bouncing

You might try rebooting your router too, sometimes getting stuck like that is a symptom of not being able to connect to a network if I remember right.

Re: WiFi Channel selection

If your router allows the txpower to be set you could also try setting your 5ghz band a little higher than 2.4 to help band steering.

Re: WiFi Channel selection

Clients can be pretty clingy with AP's, once it chooses one it's generally reluctant to choose another even if it's stronger, I'd suggest resetting the network on the problem Rokus and reconnecting. You are correct and that's why most modern adapters have a roaming aggressiveness setting to help it...
