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: "Server connection error" using Roku Media Player in 8.1 update

Is the terms of the NDA under NDA or can it be found publicly? I ask because I may at some point in the future contribute minor patches to the VLC project or some other non-commercial open source licensed media player project.  I would never attempt to leak information from a closed beta to another ...

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 ...

Re: Unpairing an enhanced remote?

Maybe the Roku phone/tablet app would work better for your partner?  Not only is it available in the Google Play and Apple AppStore, it is also available in the Amazon Appstore.  I had gotten a Kindle Fire 7 during a black friday sale for $35 and discover you get exactly what you pay for.  However, ...

Re: Roku M3U player

The best way to use a paid IPTV service from Roku is to ask the service to officially support Roku by them providing a Roku channel themselves. There are several reasons why an m3u reference probably isn't working with a IPTV service or other entries you have placed in the m3u: (1) A paid IPTV servi...

Re: YouTube channel feedback

Within this category, the biggest problem is that the YouTube channel doesn't seem to fully recognize the Roku remote app (I'm on Android). Specifically, I can navigate around the channel with the remote app, but I can't type into the search field with it. Every other channel seems to be able to do...

Re: Roku M3U player

Plex Media Server/Player should allow you to use m3u playlists to stream your playlist. It should be noted that M3U doesn't contain any content beyond references in the playlist.  It acts as a list of bookmarks but none of the songs are directly contained in the M3U itself.  Also, what invalidates a...

Re: SD memory card incompatibility

When I put one in the Roku 3, the pins faced *up* toward the ethernet port. Regardless, never try to force the card into the slot.  If it is put the way the slot requires, the notch will line up and the card will go smoothly in.  If you are trying to force the card into the slot then the notch isn't...

Repeal of Net Neutrality vs. Roku?

Several of the top used channels on Roku are probably already paying major internet providers for direct peering or paid prioritization.  So, users that focus on channels like Netflix, Amazon, HBO Go or HBO Now, there probably will not be much of a change.  It also is unlikely that internet provider...
