Personally I love the new ROKU channel release, especially the Live channels, would like to see more of these


This post is about the Roku Media Player channel, not the Roku Channel.. Two different things.

Re: VUDU Free Movies not playing

Quite a defensive stance, sheesh.

I've been around here awhile, and I just know that services go up and down, and sometimes just waiting for a bit and trying again resolves "content not found" type messages.

Re: VUDU Free Movies not playing

Easy to blame the firmware update if there's an outage on the provider's end around the time of the update, but before blaming the update, do a "try again later", aka, just wait a bit, and see if it works..

Re: Lost IR control of TCL 55S403 Roku TV after 8.1 update

Weird.. just a suggestion.. try pulling power to the TV for a minute and letting it power back on from a full power reset. Worked in IT for years (not anymore), and hard reboots seem to fix a lot of quirks.

Re: Lost IR control of TCL 55S403 Roku TV after 8.1 update

It could be interference from another light source in the area.. make sure nothing has changed in that area.

Re: Sandisk MicroSD cards

Probably won't, plus 64gb is overkill.. just buy the one that Roku sells to be sure your card will be compatible.

Re: Roku stick stinks

I had a whole fleet of Garbage Rokus during the 7.7 Firmware Debacle. That bitter taste has yet to dissipate to the point I'd actually buy another Roku - if the need arises. That's gonna take a long span of trouble-free service and the clock is still ticking. Which models did this affect? I have no...

Re: Roku stick stinks

"the thing is really a piece of garbage".. false.

I've owned Roku products since 2008, literally, and at no time have I disliked any Roku product to consider it "garbage".

If I did, I'd get my money back and not waste time on a forum, for sure.

Re: Two different streaming stick remotes died suddenly

I'm wondering if some update somewhere is doing this.. my Roku 3 RF remote "died" a little over a week ago, after 5 years. Worked fine, and then it won't pair this week, even though the pairing lights on it light up, and it attenpts to.. What kind of wifi router do you have? We have a Goog...

Re: Roku stick stinks

Get an HDMI extender.. you're getting interference from the stick being close to the TV.

Re: Can't Access Development Mode

Just happened to me too. :(  :x   I could be wrong, but as far as I know VideoBuzz is the only app that's distributed with intention to be installed through developer mode ... if correct, then this is probably at YouTube/Google's request, or Roku proactively imagining what YouTube/Google would wish...

Re: Roku 3 remote stopped pairing after 5 years

Run up the Walmart store and pick yourself up a $6 universal remote.  Just make sure it lists "Roku" on the list of supported devices on the package.  If it doesn't work right, take it back and get your money back. I need the RF remote for headphone use and point-anywhere capability.. the...

Re: Roku 3 remote stopped pairing after 5 years

I want an RF remote.. I also want to know if it REALLY needs replacing before I invest in a remote for a 5 year old Roku.

Roku 3 remote stopped pairing after 5 years

I've tried everything suggested as far as removing batteries, rebooting the Roku, and putting the batteries in goes.. tried that several times. I've rebooted my network.. Sometimes I go into the settings/remote pairing settings and it says the remote is paired, but it's not working. I generally get ...
