Re: Roku Channel Cinemax movie w/ inaudible dialogue

It looks like the movie now plays correctly. I noticed when I checked late last night the movie was unavailable, but everything seems fine now.

Re: Roku Channel Cinemax movie w/ inaudible dialogue

Just to see if it was a Cinemax problem, I went to the MaxGo website on my laptop where you can login with someone's credentials that is subscribed to Cinemax through their cable company which is what I did and the Three Billboards movie played fine with NO audio problems - the audio was perfect!!!...

Roku Channel Cinemax movie w/ inaudible dialogue

I'm on a free trial of Cinemax through the Roku Channel, and the movie Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri plays with very quiet, inaudible dialogue.  The score and ambient sounds are much louder.  I've determined this is happening because the center (and rear) channels are not coming through ...

Re: Night Listening mode REMOVED automatic volume leveling NOT ADDED

A few weeks ago, I saw someone also say on reddit that night mode had been removed from the Ultra 4640X with the update to OS 9. If you go to this link regarding automatic volume leveling in the pinned OS 9 release notes, it does look like the top-of-the-line 2016 Roku, the Ultra 4640X, will not sup...

Re: New Roku Ultra and SE stutter with 60 fps

Since this is reproducible and an obvious downgrade in usability, is there a way to report it to Roku and see if they can fix it with an OS update or if it is a limitation of the hardware?  I don't know of a site where you can specifically post bug reports.  I know that Roku rep's who sometimes pos...

Re: New Roku Ultra and SE stutter with 60 fps

So... does this mean it is a hardware issue or a firmware issue?  When my Roku 3 gets the OS 9 update, will I loose the ability to play the 60p video using variable framerate?  Almost all of my videos use the default Handbrake setting which is variable and they all play fine on the Ultra.  So far i...

Re: New Roku Ultra and SE stutter with 60 fps

I believe the Roku 3 outputs at 60fps, though someone else can chime in if that's incorrect.  Here's a reddit link where Roku users are saying that's the case.  There must be some difference in the firmware between the older and newer models, since you're getting different playback results with the ...

Re: New Roku Ultra and SE stutter with 60 fps

Have you tried enabling 'Auto-adjust display refresh rate' in the advanced display settings menu and see how the videos play? Just something to try, if you haven't already.  My Roku Ultra 4640 hasn't received the 9.0 update yet. I would frequently experience video stuttering in Hulu on my Roku Ultra...

Re: A New Blinking Light Issue???

Does the blinking light have a certain shape?  Is it blinking at regular intervals or is it random?  It doesn't occur when you're on the Roku's home screen or other menus?  Does the blinking occur on your screen with TV channels or other video sources? First, I would remove the HDMI cable (if you're...

Re: Enhanced remote won't stay paired / work when paired

Is there a reason to avoid using a fixed channel on a 5GHz network other than 161 (the one that Roku suggests)?  I might try another channel to see if that has any effect. It wouldn't hurt to try other fixed 5GHz channels.  This  link  discusses which 5GHz channels are best to try.  I use the free ...

Re: Enhanced remote won't stay paired / work when paired

I've seen people say that the free Roku HDMI extender cable can sometimes help with possible EM interference from the TV.  Although, I don't think the cable is very long, so not sure how much it could help. Are you able to try the Streaming Stick+ on another TV to see if it exhibits the same problem...

Re: Enhanced remote won't stay paired / work when paired

The Roku Ultra 4640 I previously had would lose the connection with the remote overnight.  The next day I couldn't get the remote to work unless I power cycled the Ultra.  I bought another Ultra and that one had no problem staying connected to the remote.  I determined that the first Ultra I bought ...

Re: Can't screen mirror from Windows 10 laptop to Roku Streaming Stick+

I have a Roku Ultra 4640 and am able to mirror my Windows 10 desktop to it.  However, the Miracast connection almost always fails on the first try.  In order to get it to connect, I have to toggle my PC's wifi off and then back on.  It will usually then work, but sometimes more attempts at connectin...

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

Try launching the screensaver now.  If it doesn't work, reboot your Roku and then try it. So, since the aquatic life screen saver isn't on my list anymore does Roku expect us to purchase it now? You should be able to search for it on your Roku and install it for free.  I was able to.  It does place...
