Re: No casting options from Android

I have 3 Roku's and 2 Chromecasts.. oh, and an Amazon Fire stick. Sometimes you just need a certain device for certain needs.

Yeah, I've just learned if there's a "weird" response from a first time user, just minutes after they've signed up, it's probably a bot.

For a first poster, that's a rather rude statement, especially in all caps. And if you read the posts, you will see that his issue has nothing to do with the remote. 


I think it's a bot.. look at the time of day they signed up.. first post.

Attack? Let me know when/where I attacked you. Never once.

I'm done in this thread. I offered a suggestion, to try again later, and you went off.

Personally I love the new ROKU channel release, especially the Live channels, would like to see more of these


This post is about the Roku Media Player channel, not the Roku Channel.. Two different things.

Re: VUDU Free Movies not playing

Quite a defensive stance, sheesh.

I've been around here awhile, and I just know that services go up and down, and sometimes just waiting for a bit and trying again resolves "content not found" type messages.

Re: VUDU Free Movies not playing

Easy to blame the firmware update if there's an outage on the provider's end around the time of the update, but before blaming the update, do a "try again later", aka, just wait a bit, and see if it works..

Re: Lost IR control of TCL 55S403 Roku TV after 8.1 update

Weird.. just a suggestion.. try pulling power to the TV for a minute and letting it power back on from a full power reset. Worked in IT for years (not anymore), and hard reboots seem to fix a lot of quirks.

Re: Lost IR control of TCL 55S403 Roku TV after 8.1 update

It could be interference from another light source in the area.. make sure nothing has changed in that area.

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: Roku stick stinks

Get an HDMI extender.. you're getting interference from the stick being close to the TV.
