Re: 24P with OS8

Updated the OP on where the setting is to activate it and to clear up which TV sets can support this. " most TV sets made around after Blu-Ray took off can " as I said most newer sets but considering how long Blu-Ray has been around many sets aren't so new anymore but can properly display ...

Re: Spotify Roku Channel (playlists) Officially Dead

I'm a free Spotify member and personally Spotify on the Chromecast is the best as it allows the same functionality as the PC Desktop version. Really nice.  8)

Re: Turn off roku

I want the Roku to turn off when the sleep timer on TV turns off so that the next night when I turn on the TV, the episode is where I left it, not 2 episodes later.  Roku needs a timer! I believe that's a feature of HDMI-CEC which the Roku's support. Example Blu-Ray player is on, turn TV off and BR...

Re: 24P with OS8

Well Blu-Rays (including UHD) have been auto using this on TVs that support it all these years and people usually gush over Blu-Ray. Aside from higher bitrate that the Disc offers of course. If your TV can properly handle it then any flicker should be moot. It's closer to what you view at the Cinema...

Re: Movies Anywhere - Your new digital movie locker (get some free movies too)

Once you connect your media accounts all the Movies / TV shows are also available on the other services too....

I'd assume more Roku support for the Movies Anywhere channel will come soon.... Until then you can still use Amazon, Vudu or Google Play.

Re: Netflix raising prices

It's not the point of a dollar. I would not complain if Netflix did not take away about 90% of what I was watching. Yes this year there is nothing left. I hate most of the original content for it's mature themes of sex and swearing. Really NF should be getting more licensed content not more origina...

Re: Roku Ultra - Missing Auto-PowerOff

I think HDMI-CEC can detect changing video or power source and turn itself off for like a Blu-Ray player.... Would be nice if it went back to the Home screen for Roku's.

It might get added but look how long it took for HDMI-CEC & 24hz features to be added. ;)

Keep suggesting it though. :)

Re: Netflix raising prices

There was mention in the press that Disney's thinking about a $5/month price point for their Disney on-demand streaming service in 2019.  Surprisingly low, could be worthwhile to add? Uh.... Remind us in 2019.... If so that's a great deal but until it gets closer to the date it's not set in stone y...

Re: Rollout status of The Roku Channel?

I find Vudu's free section good too. On both quality (many Movies are in HD and surround) and the ads aren't as bad as some.
