Re: Battery Life on Remote

I can't speak to the Roku stick, but from the Ultra remote I have been getting around a month with a pair of Energizer rechargeable 2300 mAh batteries.

I believe this is a standard side-effect from using Wifi Direct with AA batteries.

Re: Thumbnails When FF

I am going to break your question into two parts: (1) Does Roku offer the feature in general? (2) Does Roku offer the feature specifically for the PS Vue channel? For question #1, the answer is *yes*.  The Roku OS API has offered channel authors the ability to include this in their channel for a lon...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

I don't think roksbox is being maintained anymore. I haven't been able to login to the Roksbox/Wilddtech website for several months and attempting to use the "Forgot your password?" option just returns a SMTP connect() failed error. The author of Roksbox, WilDD, has not been active in the ...

Re: PS Vue is only channel not playing - error code

Doesn't the Roku use the DNS from the local network? If so, perhaps recording it, changing it to Google DNS, OpenDNS, or some other might resolve it. If not, it could be put back to what was there before. That would at least eliminate that question (unless you're certain otherwise) and perhaps reso...

NYT article on Locast.org

Locast is a broadcast TV transmission service that is available as a Roku channel (along with other platforms).  It also helps address a request that had come up frequently on the forums asking for being able to connect an antenna to Roku.  Previously the response would usually be to either buy a Ro...

Re: roku media player support Cyrillic?

I'm not sure having a complete Unicode v11 font set of 137,000 characters would be the best use of resources.  However, I have to agree that limiting support to use latin characters is disappointing.  Given that Google, Red Hat and the GNU project have released more complete font sets under licensin...

Re: MKV Audio Issue Please Help

Can you check which audio codec is being used in the MKV? In VLC this can be found while the video is loaded under Tools -> Codec Information (or pressing control-J) In HandBrake it can be found after loading the video under the Summary tab. You can find the list of supported Codecs for the specific...

Re: Please enable spambot countermeasures/reCaptcha!

The phpBB forum at cleantalk.org seems to be oddly free of spam. I have never used their product but it sounds like it is designed to also take care of grunt work one-off posters.  The lack of creativity in word choice in the latest spam wave seems to suggest to me that a Bayesian filter should be e...

Re: Please enable spambot countermeasures/reCaptcha!

I thought previous to phpBB 3.2 that PHP 7.1 wasn't supported.  Now that PHP 5 is beyond end of life, they really should be migrating everything to the latest version.

Please enable spambot countermeasures/reCaptcha!

I believe this forum would benefit greatly from the reCaptcha plugin that ships with phpBB 3.2.

Re: Cannot log into Roku Android application

You don't need the Android application at all for using a Roku.  It is optional.  Side-loading the APK is not really supported by Roku. You will need to have a Roku account to complete the Roku setup but you don't need the Android application for that.  Instead, you can create the Roku account just ...

Re: Original Roku 3 interfering with computer screen

Ok, If it is plugged into different HDMI ports then not HDCP. The Pavilion P7-1030 should be using the video graphic integrated into the Intel processor.  You may want to try using Intel's own driver update tool at: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/intel-driver-support-assistant.html ...

Re: PS Vue is only channel not playing - error code

Do you have any other device like a smart phone or PS4 to try using Vue on? I am curious to know if the problem only exists on the Roku or also comes up on other devices. If you can recreate the problem on other devices, you really should be contacting Vue support. If the problem is specific to the ...

Re: Original Roku 3 interfering with computer screen

Shooting from the hip, I think I have an idea what might be going on.  I want to blame HDCP because it is developed by the Intel and I mostly enjoy blaming them. However, you are light on details and it would be nice to better understand the configuration before attempting to troubleshoot. What mode...

Re: Ultraviolet shutting down July 31st, 2019

. I am hoping that at some point UV will also work out a deal with Amazon for an option to link UV movies into Amazon accounts. UV is shutting down, which is the point of this thread. No more deals to be made. From the UV website: "...  UltraViolet and retailers will be working together to max...
