Re: Anyone else have terrible audio lag on their Roku TV when using a sound bar? (TCL 55S401)

I've also realized that ALL external audio sources have this lag when connected to the Roku TV. No matter the format. No matter the device. Speakers, sound bar, MixAmp Pro and headset, etc. All the exact same lag. I'd say it's a defect either in the software or the hardware, as I said earlier. Is i...

Re: WiFi network not listed

Try rebooting your Roku.. just pull the power for a few seconds and plug it back in.

Re: Roku streaming player to play programs from a PC to a TV?

Does the Roku stick(s) come with their own software to stream from the PC? I'm only looking for a way to stream from my PC to the TV. Plex.. you install it on the Roku from the Roku channel store.. then you install the server software on your PC, start the server service, and connect your Plex on y...

Re: Anyone else have terrible audio lag on their Roku TV when using a sound bar? (TCL 55S401)

Only thing I can think of is to try powering off the TV, unplug it for a minute, and plug it back in. If that fails, a factory reset (a pain, I know).. if that fails, it sounds like faulty firmware in the TV..

Re: Casualty of the SpamWars or why PhpBB is a bad choice for forums...

I'm sure the mods are busy with their lives. These spammers use software to auto populate forums which is almost a full time job to keep up with. You can help the mods out by flagging posts which alerts them to it more.  Roku groups on Facebook don't seem to have as many issues with spam because mo...

Re: Ads before streaming now?

I have a solution that I'm going to suggest to others that have Roku devices, Boycott any company who has an ad on Roku that plays more than once in an ad segment and don't stop there, send a letter to the company doing the advertising and let them know you refuse to purchase their products until t...

Unfortunately you'll get it when you get it.. they're rolling out the updates in waves. Maybe you could contact support to see if the can put you on a faster update path..

Re: 3820X remote issues

Also, what is the model # printed on the remote? If the company sent you an infrared remote mistakenly, it won't work.

I don't think he can, since he did a factory reset and doesn't have a remote.

Re: 3820X remote issues

Have you called support? The way Roku's been making Sticks lately, the remotes are usually interchangable.

Re: 3820X remote issues

This isn't a support forum.. more of a general community forum with a touch of official support. But if you don't believe me, Google "Roku 3820" and no results will show up. If it's a Roku stick, I see no reason why a 3810 model remote won't work with yours.. I'm guessing they're almost id...

Re: 3820X remote issues

I'm looking on Google, and I don't even see a Roku 3820.. I think it's a Roku 3810.

Re: Roku Ultra No Signal

While no authority, "No signal" generally refers to Internet connection. If you're using WiFi I'd be looking into the router rather than the Roku. Personally I use a powerline wired network since it's faster and more reliable than WiFi. Hope that helps "No signal" is usually a m...
