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...

Re: Amazon Video on Demand... Roku compatible?

It's more than just being 'idiot proof' with desirable content - it has to have the right pricing model too! I'll only be interested provided Amazon offers some sort of 'reasonably' priced monthly subscription to unlimited viewing. Pay-per-view is really only possibly worth ...

Re: My 4661R, Ethernet and DNS

I've got Cloudflare set on my router and a check of Netflix shows 3 DNS servers, the first being my router (192.168.1.1) and the next two being Google (8.8.8.8 8.8.4.4), so I believe (swidt) that the answer is most likely 3 or 4.

Completely normal for different devices to receive updates at a different time. They paused rolling out 9.1 due to some issues and have just resumed the rollout. You should have it soon.

Roku tv and updates

Just got my first Roku tv a couple of months ago (8111X) and noticed that while my Roku 3 and Express have both received the 9.1 update, the tv is still on 9.0, so just wondering if the tv's are going to get 9.1 and if not is it normal for the tv's and the standalone boxes to be on a different updat...

Re: Roku with Spectrum away from home

Scottypie1234 is right that Spectrum only allows streaming on your home network for the most part, but I do remember from when I had it that they allowed a few channels to be watched outside your home network, so maybe that's what you were watching. If so you might try removing the channels you were...

Re: Need Advice Setting Up CableTV Alternative for Grandfather.

Roku tv's have input from an antenna, but no stand alone Rokus have it, ESPN has a stand alone subscription for $5 a month i think, but I don't know what it allows you to watch, It probably has a free trial if you want to try it out, there is no way to get CNN without a streaming service like trekke...

Re: TCL Roku TV owners, are you happy with the system and support?

I recently got a 32 inch TCL Roku tv and really like it, I also got a Sceptre 32 inch a couple of years ago in the same price range and the picture on the TCL is much better, kind of odd since I'm pretty sure they both use the same display. Usually agree with DubTaylor about keeping the "smart&...

Re: LATEST roku models without auto preview netflix?

You guys who hate the old units because they are too slow, I can appreciate your opinion, but I disagree.  I checked last night and my old unit is actually an LT model @ 720p.  May explain why I don't notice lag, because I'm not at 1080p maybe? Curious what model and software version your L...

Re: LATEST roku models without auto preview netflix?

Yeah, my Roku 1 (2710) has the old Netflix but it's basically the same specs as the 2 XS like trekkeriii said, just a bit more memory, I wouldn't recommend getting it.

Re: DVR for Roku?

Well, from that site it looks like they argue it's fair use since you already paid to see the content and that does make sense, that plus embedding personal info in the file to keep people from uploading it I guess is enough to pass muster with the courts.
