Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

Seems like a disappointing 2019 update (2018 and 2017 updates weren't much better either). The Ultra still seems to have the same processor as before (the speed benefits seem to be from the 9.2 software fast app launch thing).  I doubt they fixed the issues where the wifi remote control just stops r...

The new FireTV Cube has great specs, will Roku respond?

I have the newest Roku Ultra and it's pretty much had the same specs from the 2016 and 2017 Ultras.  Will Roku be launching a new Ultra box with better internals in the near future to compete with the new Cube?

Re: [Official] OS 9.1 Release Notes

I wish Roku would focus more fixes/UI improvements than features. -Remote issues.  Sometimes my Roku Ultra remote does a double click when clicking play/pause.  Other times the remote will be unresponsive for about 30 seconds (I just keep clicking it until it works) -The Microphone Button.  Hitting ...

Re: Roku Ultra remote doing double click?

Hi Tanner.  My Roku Serial # is:  CK3843546491 (it's a 2017 model Roku Ultra). I tried using the Roku remote app on my phone for a day but the pause/unpause problem didn't occur (although as I said I only used it for a day and the problem is very random). I have a Roku IR remote and this pause/unpau...

Re: Roku Ultra remote doing double click?

I started this thread back in Dec and after going nuts with this issue decided to just bite the bullet and buy a new Enhanced Remote from Roku.com.  And wouldn't you know it THE PAUSE/UNPAUSE problem STILL happens!

The problem is in the Roku itself.

Re: Roku IR remote registers arrows clicks as double clicks in Netflix

Hey Tanner, this only happens in Netflix.  All other apps are fine. The Roku Remote app on  my iPhone works great in Netflix (and everywhere else).  And my Ultra Enhanced remote worked fine (when it was still functional, it broke because of my own clumsiness). It's only the IR Remote in Netflix itse...

Roku IR remote registers arrows clicks as double clicks in Netflix

I have a 2017 Roku Ultra.  My enhanced remote broke and I'm using the official Roku IR remote that I had.  The problem is that when I click an arrow in Netflix, it registers as 2 clicks.  The only solution is touch the arrow very light/quickly to avoid a double click.

Anyway to fix this?

Roku Ultra remote doing double click?

Sometimes when I click "pause" on Netflix or Hulu it will pause, but then start playing again about 5 seconds later.  And the reverse is true.  Sometimes I'll unpause and then 5 seconds later it pauses.

Any ideas on what's wrong or how to fix it (2017 Roku Ultra model)?

Any major hardware updates for the new Roku Ultra?

I see that you can pre-order but I haven't read anything about specs.

Does anyone know if there's a bump from last years Roku Ultra?

Re: Roku remote failing after update

This happens to me too.  I have the 8.1 update on my new 2017 Roku Ultra and after a few hours of playtime the remote stops working.

Gray boxes instead of artwork

I'm on a 2016 Roku Ultra (8.1.0 Build: 4131) and sometimes when I'm scrolling through movies and shows I will get a gray box instead of the programs screencap preview or movie poster.  This happens mostly on Amazon Prime Video and Hulu, but sometimes Youtube. I tried doing a factory reset and resett...

No Dolby Digital Plus on 2017 Roku Ultra?

Why not?  For what purpose would they remove this feature?  Every A/V receiver from the last 5 years has DD+.

Is the Roku Ultra 2017 an improvment over the 2016?

I sold my 2016 earlier this year because I was getting constant sound drops and audio pops.  With Fire TV no longer getting Youtube, I need a new streaming player.

Have the sound issues been fixed on the 2017 Roku?

Re: Chirping/popping noise - when will we see a fix?

I'm starting to think that it won't be fixed.  It will be put off until the "Roku Ultra 2" is released. I got my Roku 3 out of the box and it's better than the Ultra (a little slower with the GUI, and locks up when navigating menus sometimes, but at least the playback of audio/video is per...

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

I'm about to give up on the Ultra and grab a Fire TV box.  The Roku UItra is a complete mess.  Here's a list of the problems I'm having (on firmware 7.5.1 build 4111, 1080p tv, Yamaha 5.1 receiver, new up to date HDMI cables) - audio popping/chirping.  It happens at least once every 20 minutes now -...
