Re: Roku CEO Anthony Wood on Apple's streaming service

I have a prediction. 6 months after we all get the Apple/Roku app and have subscribed to a bunch of channels. Apple informs us that because of Apple's proprietary super-secret encryption software we will need to purchase an Apple Branded Remote to use their Roku app. It can only be purchased and re...

Re: OMG! New Amazon Prime Video UI .Thank you!

It looks better and is a welcome improvement. You still can't FF with the remote like you can with Netflix, Vudu, HBO or most other Roku apps. Amazon requires you to use the small FWD Scan button instead of the big Left or Right buttons.

Re: Losing Amazon Audio

I use Amazon app almost daily and haven't had any problems with sound.

Now the Amazon app has had a lot of growing issues over the years. In the last 6 months it's been good. Sound and 4k seems really good. Navigation has always been a disaster.

Hope you get it working.

Re: Roku Search shows incomplete results from VUDU (when I know Vudu has it)

I noticed this also, especially the last few months. For a time it seemed very accurate. Now it's hit or miss on whether you get the correct result.

Re: The Roku Channel

I tried The Roku Channel early on. It played 5 commercials in a row and then wouldn't load the movie that was suppose to play. I haven't been back since.

I see it advertised a lot now but I don't know if it actually is working.

Re: Not what I expected , new user feedback

In my experience the Roku has many problems but picture quality has never been an issue. I have a 2016 Ultra that does a great job in handling 4K content on my Samsung TV.

As others have said the problem is probably in your TV settings.

Good Luck!

Re: HDCP p[urple error message, but I set up correctly per Roku

I've had the same issues for almost a year. Never had a HDCP error with VUDU or Netflix-YouTube and Amazon have given the most problems for me. I have also done all the troubleshooting with the cables and settings. With the latest update 8.0.1 build 4108 I now have a problem with the Roku going blac...

Re: A Great movie search website

I just added this to my Fire Tablet. The site looks great and should be really useful as a movie search site while sitting on the couch.

Re: Roku Ultra flashing black screen.

No, I don't work for Roku. I have no idea if they are working on a fix, I just keep posting about it on here till hopefully they get sick of seeing the same problem being reported and they fix it. I'm not sure this kind of thing matters anymore. On paper Roku looks good to investors. The shareholde...

Re: Want to Buy a Second Roku for the Bedroom

sure you do.  if your roku has 7.7.x installed you can roll it back.  the secret menu mojo is found by google searching.  I'll also bet it does not come out of the box with 7.7.  Roku 2 ‘Downgrade’ from firmware current to last/older version ⋅ Home x 5 ⋅ FF x 3 ⋅ RW x ...

Re: PS Vue App

Hulu is no stranger to developing a Roku app, and even they are falling behind on the platform. Just saying … At the end of the day, if the Roku OS doesn't allow for modern UI and styling… well I've made my point and we can agree to disagree. I'm no longer a Roku Person of Good Streaming Taste beca...

Re: Newbie; Why are some of Rokus mainstream apps so badly designed?

I just got a new Sony Blu Ray player with apps. The Spotify app is great, though it needs to be controlled by a phone or tablet. Additional apps like PVUE look much better on the player. I'm not a developer but it seems the Roku is designed to build easy simple apps not apps like Netflix, HBO Now, o...
