Re: IP Camera Viewer Basic and Pro, fresh out of the oven (ONVIF, RTSP coming soon)

I have the Pro version of IP Camera Viewer.  If I purchase either a Blink XT or Blink XT2 camera will I be able to view them on my Roku Stick+ ??

Re: Fox News Channel

I'm beginning to think that it's a problem with the Roku channel.  As I had mentioned in my first post, I signed in with my Verizon FIOS account on both my TV and Roku.  Only the Roku gave me a problem.  As a test, I just recently signed into the Roku channel using my son's AT&T account - same p...

Re: Fox News Channel

@DBDukes:

Any idea what cable provider(s) the family members are using??  As I had mentioned I am on Verizon FIOS . . .

Fox News Channel

Anyone else having a problem with the Fox News Channel??  Here's my situation . . . I have a Roku Stick+ attached directly to my Sony Bravia X900E TV.  The TV itself runs Android TV and has apps (or channels) that can be downloaded.  I have installed the Fox News Channel on both the Roku Stick+ and ...

Re: Unauthorized HDCP Content

Sorry to hear that your problem is back.  Luckily (at least so far) I have not had the purple screen HDCP error for more than a month and a half now. In my last post I mentioned that I had done two things different : 1. not use the YouTube app on the Stick+ and 2. used the free HDMI extender from Ro...

Re: Unauthorized HDCP Content

I have also had some luck in avoiding the HDCP purple screen.  As I had mentioned previously I currently have my Stick+ connected to my Sony TV with the free small HDMI extension cable that I got from Roku.  I have also stopped using the YouTube channel on the Stick+ and use the native YouTube app o...

Re: Roku, please allow the power button to send the home comand to the Roku so it stops streaming

Newer Rokus with the enhanced remote certainly do have a power button. I was not aware of that. I have a ROKU Ultra which is fairly new; just a home button. When I'm done watching I hit the Home button and turn off the TV.E Even with the newer remotes that have a power button, you still need to hit...

Re: Unauthorized HDCP Content

I am currently on my 6th or 7th day of being "HDCP Purple Screen" free.  As I had posted previously I am currently using the free HDMI extension cable offered by Roku to connect my Stick+.  I know this should make absolutely no difference in whether I get the HDCP error or not, but I figur...

Re: Unauthorized HDCP Content

donb, interesting . . . Think I'll try that and see what happens.  Just on a whim, I am currently using my Stick+ plugged into an HDMI extension cable that I got free from Roku last year.  I know it shouldn't make a difference but I figured since it was so easy to try why not!  So far for the past 2...

Re: Unauthorized HDCP Content

I mostly use the Roku Stick+ rather than the Sony's built-in apps.  I find the Roku interface much more responsive than the Sony Android one.  Additionally, since I tend to watch FoxNews during the day, the app on the Roku is not as, shall I say, "buggy" as the one on Android.  The Android...

Re: Unauthorized HDCP Content

Also happens intermittently to me although I can't say that YouTube videos trigger it.  I've had it happen while trying to watch YouTube, FoxNewsGo, and other channels.  I have to say that this is the only real problem I have with the Roku Stick+ - a PIA but one that is still manageable. Just wish t...

Re: Unauthorized HDCP Content

I also have the Stick+ and have had the same thing happen to me.  I have a Sony XBR 900E television that has 4 HDMI ports that all support HDCP 2.2.  I tried a couple of different ports and also a new Stick+ (returned the old one) to no avail.  Happens about 2 times a week.  A restart of the Roku fi...

Re: Streaming Stick plus Purple screen

I think it's a Roku problem.  Not sure if it's a hardware or software problem but my Roku Stick+ does the same thing.  Bought the Stick+ about 1 month ago and have it plugged directly into the HDMI port on my television.  No cables and no AVR involved.  Also the Stick+ is powered via the wall wart. ...

Re: Roku Stick+ and HDCP Error

@AndyCalling . . . Thanks for the reply and suggestion.  The TV has the latest firmware as does the Roku Stick+.  Also, I tried a different HDMI port and it still happens.  Again, it's not happening everyday but just enough to really be annoying.  Based on what dhays0419 posted it apparently is a pr...

Roku Stick+ and HDCP Error

Got the new Roku Streaming Stick+ a couple of weeks ago and find it to be an extremely capable device with one exception . . .  Occasionally, I will start to watch a channel and I will get the dreaded purple HDCP error screen.  When this happens it effects ALL the channels that I have installed on t...
