Re: Roku thinks I'm in US.

Factory reset.. also, make sure your router isn't using a VPN.

By the way, what country ARE you in?

Re: How does a Roku Express add channels automatically to the Home Page

If there are several Roku's in the same house with he same account, the Roku's will mirror one another as far as which channels are added or deleted.. If you add Netflix to one, it gets added to all. If you delete Netflix from one, it gets deleted from all, and so on.. Are you sure this isn't what's...

Re: Roku premiere v 9.0.0.4142 & iOS app “play on Roku”

Perhaps the developer of the app need to fix it to work with Roku's latest update, and not the other way around. I'd also report this to them if I were you.

Re: Screen corruption on all channels

Can you try this on a different TV, to rule out the TV being the issue? If it happens on multiple TV's then it's most likely a bad Roku. If it only happens on one TV then it's most likely an incompatibility with your TV. Since Digihome isn't a household name, I doubt Roku has one in their test lab.

Re: Low volume through soundbar

I recently purchased a Westinghouse soundbar for my 65” TCL Roku TV because I thought that the one I had purchased at goodwill didn’t work well. You can hear audio, but not at the level you would expect from a connected, amplified speaker. I use the optical because the soundbar doesn’t have HDMI. C...

Re: Are there any Browser Channels on Roku ?

I also tried the two browsers I found in the Roku channels. They remind me of DOS shell, the advanced version of DOS just before Windows 3.1came out. In other words... Prehistoric! And anyway they don't even come close to working except for the FBI link (WTH?) which I didn't explore... The problem ...

Re: Roku2XD and MLBTV problems

I've been a very satisfied owner of a Roku2XD for a number of years (at least 7-8). I have no or very limited problems with your product watching Netflix, Amazon Prime, and a handful of other channels.  However, beginning last year with the new app, MLBTV is a nightmare. I endured very poor streami...

Re: First thoughts on Alexa for Roku skill

My Roku was named "Roku Living Room TV" or so something like that in my Alexa settings.. renamed it to just "Roku TV" and a lot of my command related problems went away. Tanner, is there a way to set the TV to a specific numeric volume, such as "Alexa, set Roku tv volume to ...

Re: ROKU needs a Cycling Channel

I want a Cycling Channel. I know UCI has priced itself out of the poor man's market with its gazillion dollar franchise fee but there are plenty of semi-pro races, documentaries and films. I know at least one other person who also wants a Cycling Channel. So there must be some revenue possibility. ...

Re: Aren't screensavers all free now?

People incorrectly interchange the words "screensavers" and "wallpapers" which are two completely different things. Roku themes are kinda like wallpapers on your computer desktop (though fonts and other elements do change, too).. people sometimes call these screensavers. They are...

Re: lost remote then new network

Your don't need to pair a remote with your Roku Express.. pairing is only done when the remote is a Roku-enhanced remote, not an infrared remote. My suggestion is to go to a local store like Walmart, Target, or Best Buy, and get a infrared universal remote, but look on the fine print and make sure i...

Re: Roku TV not finding my Wi-Fi signal.

Another thing I'd try is to power off the TV, unplug it, leave it unplugged for a good 30 seconds, plug jt back in and power it back on.
