Re: Audio only on Roku Channel

Yeah, I hear ya.. content providers don't want people to easily be able to record streaming content, as they do still want people to buy the stuff they want to keep.

Re: Video Player

I recommend Plex too.. just attach that USB drive to your computer and install Plex server on your computer. Works great for me.

Cleopatra, I suggest a Roku Stick.. mine works great, with 1080p too.

Re: 8.0 update really screwed up my TV experience

You know what would fix this? If Roku would just put numbers on their TV remotes, LIKE EVERY OTHER REMOTELY CONTROLLED TV MADE AFTER 1979!

I don't watch OTA TV on my TCL Roku TV, but I couldn't imagine doing so without a numeric keypad.

Does the Roku app at least let you enter a channel number?

Re: Audio only on Roku Channel

Generally, recording streaming material is frowned upon, as the content is for rent, and not permanent ownership.. unless it's bought content (like through Amazon, Ultraviolet, etc)..

Re: Roku 8.0 Update

I got it on my TCL 40” TV last night.. no major impact on how I use it though. Make sure to go to power and enable the "Fast Boot" option (assuming you aren't in california and can afford the slight increase in power).  Basically instant-on like TVs should be. Oh , I DID do that.. very ni...

Re: V 8.0.1 build 4042-46

They are posting them and reporting them.  In fact one of the guys was in the beta development program, reported them to ROKU and ROKU ignored him.  Imagine that ROKU fan boy. Major releases are no excuse for sloppy coding.  And FW 8 has been nothing but sloppy. Oooo, here we go with the "fan ...

Re: V 8.0.1 build 4042-46

Vague rants.. love them. Every streaming device has bugs. Every streaming device either forces updates or highly encourages them at the very least.. I've said it before, I've owned many Roku devices and while some models were more reliable and speedy than others, none felt like I got ripped off by R...

Re: Old TV shows now in 4:3 - RUINS TV screen

Not to derail the topic, but I disagree.. Plasma picture quality is awesome, and whole burn-in sucks, I never have had the issue. Plasma was discontinued because of manufacturing costs, not because of burn-in.

Re: Roku TCL TV's: Which models have "soap opera effect" by default or always?

Can someone explain (in plain English) what enabling Game Mode does, and if how close it is to disabling the "soap opera effect” setting?

I've got the TCL 1080p 40" model, and whole the effect hasn't bothered me yet, I'm wondering how much PQ suffers by having game mode turned on.

Re: Roku 3 storage expansion slot

This is not what i am looking for. Roku is best placed in Failed museum. Because it has a USB slot for videos, and not an SD slot? Awww.. failed. No, actually, you can store a whole heck of a lot more on a portable hard drive than you can on an SD card, so I'm sure this is why Roku hasn't explored ...
