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 ...

Re: Cache Issues on Roku???

I've never, ever seen a cache clear option on a Roku box.. are you sure you aren't thinking of an Amazon fire stick? They're Android based and have some cache issues, and I believe, a way to clear its cache.

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.
