Amazon Fire Stick vs Roku Stick

Ok, so. I've owned the Amazon Fire Stick for a few days, and am writing my opinion about it, based on having owned several Roku devices for 8.5 years. The GUI is definitely more complicated and busy than the Roku's.. If you have more than a handful of "apps", you need to scroll all the way...

Re: Still No 5.1 Sound w/Premier

Have you messed with the audio settings in the Roku's main audio setup (not in Netflix, but the Roku settings screen).

Re: Still No 5.1 Sound w/Premier

Have you tried Roku -> AVR via HDMI, and AVR -> TV via hdmi (for video)? That's how I have always hooked up my Roku's (had a model as old as the original Roku 2 XS from I believe 2010 that could decode Netflix 5.1 DD+ that way).

Re: TCL Roku Tv 1/2 screen goes black

Better to just call support and get a replacement. There's clearly something very wrong with it.

Re: aquarium screensaver now with "Roku"branding on rock?

What do you mean by "bundled"? I got the Screensaver from the streaming channels store, under Screensavers, long ago.

Re: Grind House Grit Channel

All content, or just adult content? I noticed this so I signed up for the Gold subscription (ad-free) version.. I noticed it only happened with certain content.

How next very is to ask Netflix on their website, Roku themselves won't be much help.

New thread, clean slate.. Maybe someone has an answer for him. We shouldn't be here to be hall monitors.

Re: MLB.TV 2017 on Roku, $112.99 for full season

Guys, blackouts for almost all teams are a thing of the past starting this year! As long as you have a cable subscription that has your teams network channel, yu can now use mlb.tv to watch it, by doing a one time auth with mlb.tv. I believe it's an extra $10 for in market streaming.

Yup, which sucks. I am not big enough of a baseball fan beyond my local team to want to watch anything but my local team.

Until they stop blacking out local games, it's a waste of money to me.

Re: Universal Search is not Universal?

It's true, it's limited to the "big" channels, like Fandango, Vudu, Amazon, and I believe Netflix. There could be more, but yeah, it's limited.
