Re: [Official] Roku OS 8.2

We are using HLS multi-bitrate streams hosted by Cloudflare. Cloudflare supports both HLS and MPEG-DASH.  Out of curiosity, has you tried pointing the tester tool to the DASH stream. The DASH sample URL for the same video seems to be:  https://videodelivery.net/a38818fb7de31928f4203250a6650c78/mani...

Re: [Official] Roku OS 8.2

Consumer Reports posted an article which I read to indicate there would be changes to block ECP in Roku OS 8.2 and 9.0.  The article titled "Samsung Fixes a Smart TV Security Problem Prompted by Consumer Reports' Findings" was mostly targeting Samsung smart TVs but also brought up Roku has...

Re: Different Episodes on diffent Roku's

Installing a channel on any device on the same Roku account will install that same channel on all the devices.  However, authenticating a subscription on one device does *NOT* carry over to other devices. So, if you install FXNOW channel on the Roku Stick then it will also appear on the TV in the Li...

Re: [Official] 2018 Fall Launch - Roku Premiere/Premiere+ Feedback

I agree that 5 GHz is preferable for wireless connections, but it isn't a requirement for the device to be 802.11 AC. Roku has had dual band wireless all the way back in a few of their first generation boxes (these new players will be 7th generation). Even with what you can buy today, the Streaming...

Re: [Official] 2018 Fall Launch - Roku Premiere/Premiere+ Feedback

Roku's recycling of product names makes it really hard to provide a recommendation to novices. When someone advocating to get a specific 7th generation Roku product needs to also specify to make sure it isn't the 2016 models or to avoid model 4620/4630 then there is just all sorts of needless confus...

Re: I'm buying a new Roku device and I have a question?

I have more than one Roku on the same network so I find it helpful to update the Name/Location under the Roku account. The only reason to unlink a Roku is if you plan to sell or give it to someone else.  Otherwise, as long as you still physically in possession of a Roku, I would recommend not unlink...

Re: Roku Express Can't connect to password protected Wifi Network

Were you able to confirm the ASUS AP is on the latest firmware version?

Can you check the wifi security settings to make sure it is set to WPA2-Personal and AES?

How many curved bars of signal are highlighted in the roku network scan?

Re: Roku Ultra to Monitor via DVI

Is the monitor 1920x1080 or a non-standard resolution like 1600x900?  I assume this is an older monitor that has no HDMI ports? If this is an older monitor that doesn't provide full 1080p, you might want to force the ultra to 720p and see if that keeps the problem from occurring. Also try checking t...

Re: ROKU Windows10 App

If all you are looking for is a soft remote without involving the Microsoft appstore, I recommend trying Remoku. It is available as a website, Chrome Extension or Firefox Add-On: http://remoku.tv/ https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/remoku/kmbcoebcjaiiejopnadjlknjhifadnlg?hl=sw https://addons....

Re: Roku Express Can't connect to password protected Wifi Network

Make sure the ASUS RT-AC3100 is on the latest version which as of today seems to be 3.0.04.384.21045. I have seen problems with the DHCP service for devices acquiring an IP address with the ASUS access points.  A reboot of the AP will temporarily address the issue but really only a update can help r...

Re: Why I Gave Up on Roku

Based on the information you gave, my best guess is that this is a problem with the HDCP 2.x support on the Roku Ultra performing a periodic handshake that the TV isn't dealing with well.  I know you have been rubbed raw by how Roku support has handled the case and been pointing fingers, but I would...

Re: Overheating

As stated by Basil, what exactly you mean by "overheating" matters. It looks like DirecTV is distributing the Roku Model 3800 Streaming stick.  As far as I know, this uses a quad-core processor that can consume over 2 watts of power.  It is normal for it to get hot to the touch.  That is n...

Re: Google play movies - offline playback

What you are asking for of being able to stream Google Play Movies saved for offline playback is not really something the Play store was designed to offer.  Roku supports the DIAL (Discovery and Launch) protocol which could allow Google to do some interesting things for a Roku channel that supports ...
