Re: Streaming Stick Plus

This issue is likely related to your outdated modem/router combo.  A new wireless router/Access Point will likely solve your issue.

Re: Streaming Stick versus Streaming Stick + Responsiveness/ Speed

More than likely you won't notice any difference in performance on a 2K TV.  The Stick+ has a better antenna so if your wifi signal is weak then the Stick+ might give better streaming with less buffering.  However the regular Stick wifi performance often can be improved by adding a HDMI extension ca...

Re: Unauthorized HDCP Content

I have had this issue for more than a year.  I have 2 Sony 4k TVs, one has the Roku Ultra, the other has the stick+ and intermittently I get the purple screen on both.  Usually it happens on Hulu or DirecTV Now.  I don't use YouTube.  It seems random and happens about every 2 or 3 days.  A reboot fi...

Re: Roku, please allow the power button to send the home comand to the Roku so it stops streaming

Re: MLB.TV 2018 on Roku devices

MLB.tv Blackout Restrictions are ridiculous.  Both home and away games are blacked out.  What’s the point of MLB.tv if you can’t watch your home team?

Re: Cannot use brand new Stick+

If you want it today most Walmart's have 3 foot HDMI extension cables for $5.  A 3 foot cable will give better positioning options for best reception than the 6 inch Roku cable.
