Re: TV broke down!

Most things you watch on your Roku can be watched via downloaded apps for your tablet..

Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, MLB, and many others have decided Android apps.

That's your best bet.

The new Rokus are just as buggy and still cannot accomplish half the things you might expect.  I regret buying one, it was a waste of money.


I've owned Roku products since 2009.. I must not be as good as knowing a bug when I see one.

Re: Trouble Traveling With My Roku Streaming Stick

I'm guessing it's starting with an incompatible TV resolution. When the screen goes black, do button presses (such as Home) produce a beep noise? If.so, the Roku is booting, but not to a resolution that the TV can handle.. Try booting the Roku stick on your working TV, set the resolution lower, to 7...

Re: Youtube channel fail: My Videos -> "Nothing to display"

Yes Youtube on the Roku does authenticate as me How could it possibly do so when you never enter your password? The channel uses your username (or any other username you enter) to access only public data about that username. Anything you see in the channel is publicly available, the YouTube channel...

Re: Roku 2 XD... time to upgrade?

I exaggerated when I said to get "any" Roku..

My point was, you will notice a great speed increase as well as app compatibility with the newer Roku models.

Re: Sleeping Roku

When the screensaver is active the Roku is as close to "sleeping" as it is ever going to be. Your other devices, like even your TV, are probably drawing just about the same power when turned off as the Roku does when the screensaver is active. Rokus are not "power hogs" it is ju...

Why would you buy an extender when you can get one for free from ROKU?  They arrive in just few days.

Correct.. I'm just so used to buying cheaply via Amazon, and getting it quickly with Prime.. sure, the Roku route works too.

Re: Roku Stick Freezing

Or you could buy an HDMI extender for it and see if that helps. It could be that the TV is generating heat too, and the Roku is overheating because of it. Also, have you tried plugging the Roku in with an AC adapter? Maybe your already doing this, but some TV's USB ports don't supply enough power to...

Re: Roku 2 XD... time to upgrade?

Just buy a new Roku, ANY new Roku. It will be much faster than a Roku XD. A minor investment for a major improvement.

Re: New Roku Stick Keeps Turning TV Off

Could the Roku be using too much power that your TV can't handle?

How do you have the stick powered? If it's drawing power from the TVs USB port, try not doing that. Try plugging in using an AC adapter instead.

Re: Reality check...

You probably.bought this TV two years ago, correct? It's a 2.year old model, which isn't terribly old by Roku standards, but being an owner of many models of Roku products in the past, including boxes, sticks, and TV's, I can say that my 2017 TCL Roku tv navigates more slowly than my 2016 Roku stick...

What happens if you remove the batteries from the remote? I wonder if the Netflix button is stuck.

Re: antenna icon missing

You can only use the Antenna input on a Roku TV, not a Roku stick.. the Roku stick has no way to access your TVs inputs.

To clarify, the Roku stick itself IS an input device itself.
