Re: next fall a new Roku?

Well, you have to sign in to the app. My neighbor came down the other day and I showed him the Roku. He was not impressed at all, me neither. I mean, it doesn't boot up the tv to Spectrum right away, you can't enter channel numbers and you can' can't go online, you know to surf the Net. So, I have ...

Re: TCL 55R615 Audio Delay

Having the exact same issue. I’ve had a TCL Roku TV for a couple of years and never been able to fix it, no matter what I try. Outputting stereo audio isn’t an option, as I have a Vizio surround sound system I want to use. TCL and Roku don’t care about this at all and keep releasing TVs with the ex...

Re: DD audio help before I return my Ultra and leave Roku :(

Can you guide us through your setup?  What is hooked to what and how, what are the model of your TV and receiver? I think it's been verified that Hulu doesn't do 5.1 on Roku (yet).. Here's the official word from Hulu+ https://help.hulu.com/s/article/sound-quality?language=en_US I have recently noti...

Re: Need Advice Setting Up CableTV Alternative for Grandfather.

Roku tv's have input from an antenna, but no stand alone Rokus have it, ESPN has a stand alone subscription for $5 a month i think, but I don't know what it allows you to watch, It probably has a free trial if you want to try it out, there is no way to get CNN without a streaming service like trekk...

Re: Roku Channel Autoplay

@Emissary35 Thanks for following up. To help clarify the answer here, autoplay functionality is determined within each channel, by the channel developer. This is not a Roku system feature as of now.  Most channels (apps) that offer this feature provide the ability to enable or disable it within the...

We purchased a new remote, still won't work. Went through some steps to reset the TV and now it is stuck on the page t...

I am trying to hook a windows 10 pc to my TCL and it is not working.  I already attached a windows 7 PC to the TV via HDMI.  It was easy. plug in HDMI and choose the input.  I tried to do the same with the windows 10 pc but that is not working.  I can see the boot screen when I boot the pc but as s...

Re: Roku TV settings antenna only

For an elderly person I would suggest that you do as Jeffrok suggested and in SETTINGS -- SYSTEM -- POWER -- POWER ON and select ALWAYS POWER ON TO -- ANTENNA TV. That would ensure that even if they inadvertently selected another source and powered down the TV it would always start back up on ANTENN...

Re: How to turn home page advertising off?

I am always complaining about ADs., how ads on streaming media is tortuous and getting worse literally by the day. But the ads to the right of the menu screen do not bother me.  On the other hand, probably wont be long before there are 2 of them. Toss in a video ad. All good things come to an end. ...

Re: How to turn home page advertising off?

And what happens if they change the static ads to video/audio?  I certainly wouldn't want that... Tell that to Netflix and the 139 million subscribers worldwide. That is effectively what the Home Screen on Netflix is now and I don't think their subscriber growth has suffered. What we will do is vis...

Re: Roku TV / Netflix slow navigation

Thanks atc. I called Netflix customer service before I posted here and they told me the problem was with my television. Your answer makes more sense. I’ll go try to find a place to vent to Netflix. I have seen the same sluggish navigation issues with Netflix on all of my TCL Roku-enabled TV's from ...

Re: How to turn home page advertising off?

That's ridiculous. I've already paid close to $100 for the Roku and I pay for Netflix. All the free channels already display ads at the rate of one every two minutes, so you have to wait through 50-60 ads per movie and often they are the same twice in a row. The big-ass ad on the front page should ...

If you wish to track only the shows that you watch, I find the TV Calendar website below quite useful.

It seems to work off of air dates for shows that you ...
