Re: How To Easily Turn Any Roku On Or Off Without Pulling It Out Of It’s Port All The Time

Google and Amazon only listen when you speak the trigger word. Don't believe the negative hype. Besides, you can use Google or Amazon smart home without an actual "listening" device, other than a smartphone, which most people already have. Add to that the cost of a smart outlet, and you're...

Re: How To Easily Turn Any Roku On Or Off Without Pulling It Out Of It’s Port All The Time

It's your home is "smart" (Alexa or Google home aware), just buy a universal smart outlet..

"Alexa/Google, turn on Roku".. "Alexa/Google, turn off Roku"..

Smart outlets can be had for under $20.

Re: Stop Roku Ultra from Changing Resolution back to Auto Detect

Bitrate control is what I am referring to and was the main reason I purchased Roku and pitched my old RCA. When I suddenly went through my monthly data in a short time I went looking for the cause and have since discovered I'm not the only person irritated by Roku and the decision to deactivate thi...

Re: No audio from Roku Express 3900 to receiver

Nothing in your receiver's settings? I know it's not the most advanced receiver and it's more of a combo unit, but have you looked in any audio forums or any LG forums?

Re: No audio from Roku Express 3900 to receiver

This is gonna sound silly, but have you powered off the Roku and rebooted it? I've also seen here where people with audio problems have done factory resets and their problems have been fixed (last resort of course!).

Re: No audio from Roku Express 3900 to receiver

You sure you have it plugged into the HDMI input and not the output? Also, I'd try a different, newer HDMI cable.

Re: Audio sync issue with Netflix

I have a Roku3 model 4200X. Lately I have noticed that when using the Netflix app the audio is out of sync with the video and it bothers me. I tried power cycling the Roku with no effect. I deleted and re-installed the Netflix app with no effect. I tried adjusting the audio setting on my Vizio TV w...

Re: Roku Media Player overseas

Hello I have a TV with built-in roku, purchased in USA, but I live overseas. i'm on 9.0. Roku media player does not work anymore , is this due to a geo-restriction?  When you moved, did you get a new IP address? Is the media stored in a directly connected drive or is it connected to a DLNA server? ...

Re: Battery Life on Remote

I'm going to post what I wrote to Tanner in case anyone has suggestions about what I can do about this hungry remote... I have a Roku Premiere+ and the remote is eating batteries like crazy. Note: I don't use the headphone feature.  Last night I installed a fresh set at 11:00; this morning at 8...

Re: Roku vs Chromecast

Chromecast is essential if you are in the Google Home ecosystem, even better if Logitech Harmony is part of the chain. Everything can be voice-controlled in that instance. Beyond functionality discussions, Chromecast does deliver noticeably better video and audio reproduction than Roku. I've found ...

Re: Deleting Watched Shows on Netflix

Have you tried logging out on the Roku app and logging in again? Does that clear things? If not, maybe try deleting the app, rebooting the Roku, and adding the channel again. I know of nothing else to try, unfortunately, but one or the other of those might work.

Re: Replacement remote for 3500X streaming stick

I'm surprised that the Roku 3600 remote doesn't work with the Roku 3500. Same technology, no? No it is not, and this is why Roku needs to provide documentation on which devices are no longer supported, a list of remotes for devices and which are NLA or unsupported. It's independent of any need to k...

Re: emergency alerts (weather)

True, it's up to a person if they want to receive them or not, at least that's how it is on Android and (I believe) IOS.
