Re: 1080p@60fps & Roku 2. Please weigh-in…

When the Display Type is set to 1080p, the Roku2 (XD & XS) will always output at 1080p/60. 1080p/24, 1080p/30, and any lesser format streams will all be upscaled and output as 1080p/60. The user interface is output at 1080p/60 as well. If your TV supports 1080p/60 then you should be fine with th...

Re: Sirius/XM

Great news!
I had given up and deleted it from my channel list so I had to add it back and configure it again.
It is working fine now and I sure hope that it stays that way.

Re: Roku XDS no 1080p

......... Are there options like that for other channels like Vimeo? Thanks again for your help. The 1080P Showcase channel is the only one that I am aware of that can output 1080p/24. Everything else outputs 1080p/30. In my opinion, the current Roku implementation of 1080p is half-baked. The curre...

Re: Roku XDS no 1080p

Does your Sony handle 1080p @ 30fps? My Sony KDL-46Z4100 does not. It can handle 1080p at 60 and 24 fps only. If your Sony is the same, you will need to go into "Settings" in the 1080P Showcase channel and set it for 24fps. If your Sony does not handle either 1080p/30 or 1080p/24, then you...

Re: [New Channel] Instant Watch Browser for Netflix

Bought it today also. It is my first, and so far, my only Roku purchase. I think it is well worth $3 and I hope some money flowing in will help keep TheEndless motivated to continue his great work on Roku apps.

Re: Map Channel?

I loaded the Mapquest channel and it works OK. However, I have a Samsung blu-ray player (BD-C5500) which has a Google Maps app which is more refined. Some of the features from it that may be used to improve the Mapquest channel: 1. It uses the entire screen 2. It has provisions for Search/Directions...

Will an antenna not work in your location?
I use an antenna and HD DVR for network TV together with Roku for streaming. It works well for me, and I have cut the cable (Comcast) cord.

Re: No video on 1080p channel

If you are using the 1080P Showcase channel, then make sure it is configured for 24fps in the settings menu. Otherwise, you will get 1080p/30 which you don't list as being supported by your TV.

Re: What about a VUDU movie channel

....... We don't do 24hz output except for 1080p content that is properly tagged by the channel. 1. Are there any channels other than the private 1080p Showcase channel that can currently output 1080p/24? 2. If you have a TV than only supports 1080p/60 and 1080p/24, you would want the Roku to conve...

...... If you have a box with a USB port you could always download the videos (I use a Firefox Greasemonkey script) and watch them with the USB channel. It seems that the USB channel defaults to outputting 1080p/30. It would need a switch (30fps vs 24fps) just like was added in the 1080p channel. A...

Re: [Private Channel] 1080p Showcase (1080p)

Is it possible that the Roku is converting 1080p/24 streams and outputting them at 1080p/30? That may expain why it doesn't work on TV's that only support 1080p/24.

Re: [Private Channel] 1080p Showcase (1080p)

I only get audio from the 1080p channel...no video. Any suggestions appreciated. Does your TV support 1080p at 30fps? I beleive that is the only 1080p frame rate the Roku is currently capable of outputting. The box supports !080p 24 and 1080p 30, but not 1080p 60. From the FAQ: NOTE: Only 1080p24 a...
