Re: Does FW 7.7 Fix Roku Ultra Audio Issues?

Sorry, I don't know anything about whether 7.7 fixes the audio issue.  I was just trying to keep the thread on topic.

Re: Does FW 7.7 Fix Roku Ultra Audio Issues?

Elijah_Baley, it seems that every time the Ultra is mentioned, you post a rant like this which has nothing to do with the topic being discussed.  This thread is about whether 7.7 fixes a specific audio problem.  You do not have that audio problem, and you do not have 7.7, so your post is entirely of...

Re: Screen Mirroring Used To Work

That's a huge number of APs, perhaps the most I've ever heard of in one location.  To verify whether this is the problem, you could take your Roku 3 to a friend's house in a quieter wifi environment and see if it performs better there.

Re: Screen Mirroring Used To Work

Sounds like it might be Wi-Fi interference. Do you see a lot of Wi-Fi access points where you are?

The Roku 4 is the only model with a fan.

If you haven't reformatted the card since you removed it from the unit, please leave it that way.  We may want to look at the card.

Re: Roku vs casting network usage

Miracast uses Wifi Direct, which is a point-to-point protocol.  The video stream goes directly from the phone to the Miracast sink (TV or Roku), and doesn't pass through the router.  So there is no extra traffic through the router, although there is extra wifi radio traffic in the air, which could b...

Re: roInt & roInteger

roInteger is just a typo for roInt in the debugger.  There should be no problem converting an object of that type to an integer.  I agree you should post your code; your problem is something different than you think it is.

Re: ROKU gets and stays hot

60 C is well within spec and is not at all hotter than it should be; in fact it is quite cool.  That is the internal temperature of the chip, not the external temperature of the case.  If the chip temperature is 60 C, the case is cooler than that, but there's no possible way that a temperature of ev...

Re: Roku TV/USB Questions

Since Roku never writes anything to a USB drive containing media, there is no need for an eject function. You can just remove the drive at any time.

Re: ROKU gets and stays hot

@TDoc: the post that you are replying to is over seven years old. At the time it was written, it was true that no Roku model had a fan. The current Roku 4 however does have a fan. @MikeFromMesa: I don't know if Roku customer care actually gave that advice seven years ago, but there is no need to pow...

Re: KODI on Roku Stick

Since the link was barely on topic, and fairly misleading (it keeps mentioning "jailbreaking" Roku when it does no such thing), I've removed it.

Re: Pause Live TV wear out USB Stick?

Just using ballpark numbers, HD video uses about 3 GB per hour, so if you're using a 32 GB stick, you would write over it once completely in about 10 hours of viewing.  NAND parts are typically good for 10,000 to 100,000 write cycles.  So assuming the stick does a good job of wear leveling, it would...

Re: OS 7.6 Update Performance Drop

There was a performance problem identified in 7.6 related to frame swapping that affects only 42xx models.  Has anyone seen this issue in any non-42xx models?  If it's only appearing on 42xx models, it sounds like the same problem.  The fix has been implemented but has not yet been released.

Re: 2nd remote to die - grrrrr!

I'm pretty sure RC31 is an IR remote.  In that case it never could have worked with your streaming stick.  You need to find the remote that came with your streaming stick.  (You can confirm this by pointing a cell phone camera at the top end of the remote while you press a button on the remote.  If ...
