Re: Roku with headphone jack

It powers on.  Lights come on and I can connect to it over the network.  Just doesn't get any signal. I've tried different HDMI cables and different power supplies (actually brought it to my house, I have the same Roku, and used my power supply and HDMI cables).  I've tried pressing the reset button...

Roku with headphone jack

So, my dad's Roku died over the weekend.  He had a Roku 3 (I don't know which model, wasn't there 2 models of Roku 3s?  He's had it for quite a while) I suppose ultimately my question is... can he use his old Roku remote with any of the newer Roku players? He doesn't do a lot with it, he doesn't hav...

Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

Maybe it's my imagination, but I'm wondering if "somebody" might be attempting to try and fix this problem. I watched the Cubs game Friday evening (replayed from earlier that day) and like you, it looked to be better.  It wasn't solved completely.  I stepped out of the room for a bit once...

Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

I also have a Roku 3 and I'm experiencing this problem. You may be on to something.  It may be something specific to just the Roku 3. Still, not sure why it worked fine last year but not this year. If it is only Roku 3 that is having this problem, then this would seem to indicate that the issue is w...

Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

I think the problem is that MLB is not able to maintain a stable streaming bandwidth and this manifests in different ways on different devices. Running MLB's bandwidth test I have had results ranging from 700 Kbps to over 15,000 Kbps. On the Roku 3 bandwidth drops cause pauses, dropped frames and j...

Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

I think all of this means that evidently there is nobody that works at Roku that follows MLB. And it would also appear that there is nobody that works for MLB that watches MLB games on a Roku. Kind of strange being that I thought these were two rather large companies and surely there's an MLB fan th...

Re: NBC channel will not load

I’m also getting this reply. My internet is down and I’m using my cell phone hotspot. Also ATT.  Very disappointing.  Does resetting the advertiser's id help with this? I was going to try resetting the advertiser's id the next time I'm over at the AT&T persons place (it's not me personally that...

Re: NBC channel will not load

When I talked to Roku customer service, they told me streaming apps are different than mobile apps. Well, this is using the Roku Stick NBC app, not an NBC app on the phone.  The person using this doesn't have any other options for high speed Internet in their area, so they are using an unlimited ho...

Re: NBC channel will not load

The NBC App also doesn't work if you are connecting through AT&T Wireless. They must have something that blocks or filters connections based on your IP address.  That's all I can think of. Would appear to be something specific to the NBC App (NBC News app works fine), but I don't know how to con...

Re: NBC doesn't load

Any clue as to why no shows load in the NBC app with AT&T Wireless Internet?

Is it a Roku problem?  An NBC problem?  An AT&T problem?

Re: This content is currently unavailable - NBC App

This seems like it may be an issue with AT&T Wireless Home Phone and Internet.  That's the only thing I can come up with. I moved the device to another location with a different Internet Service Provider and the NBC app appears to work on the device. Anybody noticed any similar issues?  This is ...

This content is currently unavailable - NBC App

I have a Roku streaming stick and when I try to watch any shows on the NBC app, I get an error "This content is currently unavailable". When I try to view the content on a Roku 3 (2013) I have no issues. Are the apps different on the streaming stick vs. the Roku 3? Anybody else had this pr...
