Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

I was hopeful that OS 9.2 might include a feature to allow GROUPS on the Home Screen. I thought that Shortcuts might be that initially, but I don't think so. The ability to create groups for 'like' apps/channels would be quite useful in cleaning up the look and navigation of the Home Screen. (i.e. G...

Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

I wonder if the new OS will also allow reprogramming of existing remote buttons? I doubt it. It appears from the pictures included in preview articles that they are adding two (2) buttons to the remote for the ROKU ULTRA that can be programmed to shortcuts you create. If companies are still willing...

Re: First thoughts on Alexa for Roku skill

Incidentally (and unrelated), has anyone figured out how to use the Amazon Echo as a speaker paired to a Roku TV?  I can't seem to find information on that anywhere.  Thanks! Follow the instructions from Roku Skill page to DISCOVER any of your Roku devices from the Alexa app and then you can pair a...

Re: Somehow got Netflix playback statistics in top left

From the netflix main screen go to settings. Then press reload Netflix. That will take it away. Idk how to put it there though. They likely pressed the ASTERISK button on Roku remote while in the main browsing menu of Netflix. This will toggle ON or OFF the display of streaming information in the u...

Re: Matroska files do not play sound

I'm having big issues with my Roku Ultra: it refuses to play sound from .mkv files. Menu sound works & .mp4 files do play sound. I already have reset the device to factory default, but the problem remains. I also tried to manually set the sound to stereo and the HDMI output to PCM-stereo as fou...

Re: TCL 55R615 Audio Delay

I want to echo everyone else in here that I too am having this problem. I have a 55R615, and a Vizio SB3651-E6. I have been dealing with this from day 1. This happens with all streaming audio, I don't use anything else (blueray/dvd). I use Plex and Netflix mainly. Thought it was Plex, wasn't. Thoug...

Re: Turning off display on a Roku TV

Bummer. I read a Roku support note that indicated this is possible listening through their wireless speakers so I was hoping it was possible through the remote as well. I guess the worst case scenario would be to do it like I do know, just use an external Roku box connected to the TV, start my cont...

Re: Roku Alexa Skill

I guess I'm just SOL using the Roku Alexa skill. Which from what I've read doesn't do all that much anyway.. I can't address your WiFi issue, but I have read through the reviews on Amazon about the Skill and have tried to respond to some of the issues and frustrations expressed there. I...

Re: TCL 55P605 since Roku 9.1 HDR dark

Since this update HDR doesn’t display properly. It’s super dark like it’s dimmed in my Xbox one x had to turn it off. 4k Blu-ray player does same thing but switching back and forth input sometimes triggers proper display. All my app that have DV or HDR work fine. PS4 Pro switching input back and wo...

Re: Starz for $4.95 ?

I bet it was Amazon. I just couldn't remember for sure, only that it was $4.95. Thank you No problem. I checked on Amazon and unfortunately it is back to regular $8.99 per month pricing with 7-day free trial. But, unless you absolutely want to stream something now, it will eventually get discounted...

Re: Starz for $4.95 ?

I have not added any Roku(s) recently but I did a few months back. I think they offer I saw was around the 4th of July A number of streaming channels were heavily discounted for a limited time during the Amazon Prime Day event. I am sure if it was offered on Amazon Channels it was likely matched on...

Re: TCL 5 series isn't connected when I turn it on

I have a 49 inch 5 series TCL TV and whenever I turn it on, it keeps saying "not connected" in the top right corner and I have to go into settings to have it check for a connection, THEN the TV connects to my WiFi and I can use it. Sometimes the TV won't even recognize my wifi network and...

Re: HD HOMERUN Now works with ROKU !!

I have it on my Rokus but one one it works perfectly and the other has video but no audio. Any ideas? The device the Roku is connected to or the Roku TV must have the ability to decode Dolby Digital or AC3 audio over HDMI. If not, you will get video, but no audio. See the Notification Notes from Si...

Re: How to Stop Constant Ads and Closed Captions

First day Roku user so excuse if this is posted incorrectly.   First, I'm watching a movie on "Watch Free Flix" but it's basically unwatchable due to the number of ad breaks. From what I've timed, it plays the movie for about 8 minutes and then it cuts and plays 5 ads. 5!!!  It counts the...
