Re: Google Play Movies

I've not used Google Play movies in awhile, but I do remember them playing quickly AND in HD.

Re: Does it have an earphone jack?

I don't have that remote, but I can tell you that it doesn't have an earphone jack. Only RF remotes have an earphone jack, infrared ones do not.

The direct replacement you want is the Gaming Remote.

Re: Spectrum TV App

Try removing the app, rebooting the Roku, and adding the app again.

Re: Roku UltraSluggish

Could it be a custom screensaver or something like that, causing slowdown? Maybe try changing the theme or the screensaver, just as a troubleshoot step.

Re: How is Roku Apps?

Go with the Ultra..the 3 is has been discontinued for several years.. while both support the same channels.at this time, future channels maybe only.support newer Roku boxes. There's no way to prove this, but in the past this sort of thing has happened.

Re: Could Roku Ultra have damaged my TV

Don't take this the wrong way, but there's a reason why most Sceptre TV's are sold for bargain basement prices almost exclusively at Walmart.

I'd guess your TV was much more of the reason your TV failed than the Roku.

Re: SPECTRUM BLOCKS FOX NEWS LIVE

Blocking? They have Fox News on regular cable.. it's probably a contractual thing.. Don't jump to silly conclusions so quickly.

Re: Headphones

Best solution might be to use the TV's headphone jack with a stereo splitter.. hook up the wired or wireless headphones to one side, and some good powered stereo speakers to the other side.. disable the TV's speakers.. you could use this full time for all viewing.

I recommend a mesh wifi system if you want to keep it simple.. my Google WiFi system works great with all Rokus in my house.. I have the main unit in my living room, a seocnd unit on the first floor near the basement (for the basement Roku) and the third unit to cover the 2nd floor. There's a little...

Re: Really weird problem: All but one or two remote buttons not responding

Sounds like something is loose inside the remote.. I'd just replace the remote.
