Adding a DVR feature to an Roku TV?

Since my TV has an option to pause live TV by storing the buffer on a USB device, is there a way that I can use the USB port as a DVR? All I need is an app to record the content on to the USB drive. I figure it's already recording the content to the USB drive anyway for the pause buffer. This is the...

Re: USTVNOW No longer available for Roku

Screen mirroring eh? Not a bad idea. Wonder if there is a way for Windows 10 to do this. 
I can cast Youtube content from my PC to the Roku stick.
In the meantime.... I'll keep using my free USTVNow account and watch it on the laptop and have the laptop connected to the TV via HDMI.

Re: Fluctuating audio levels with Netflix

I've got the same issue with my Pioneer receiver to. I personally think those speakers aren't the best.

Re: Getting the max throughput on a 5GHz network

The one stick is at an 'excellent' connection on the 5GHz network but the other one is coming up as 'good'. Will increasing the wifi signal help to boost the data rates?  As for the channel, everything is on 40 MHz wide and I can't tell if the channels are free because my laptop wifi only works on t...

Re: USTVNOW No longer available for Roku

Man, that sucks!
How else am I going to watch NBC? If they have an app for live streaming, it's geoblocked. (Not available in Canada. :(
I suppose I can toss up the antenna and watch NBC, CBS, CW, MYTV and PBS with the OTA setup once I get the antenna up.

Re: Getting the max throughput on a 5GHz network

My sticks are the black ones that I got from Best Buy for $49. :) That was the only stick that they had at that time.

Re: Fluctuating audio levels with Netflix

Yes it's a 5.1 system and it does have a center speaker. Depending on the audio I usually have it on Dolby 5.1 or All channels stereo (or ext. stereo) depending on the model. I keep the center speaker on +12 (max) for the volume.

I think my Roku stick is set to Auto for the audio.

Re: Getting the max throughput on a 5GHz network

For streaming anything from the Internet, you really don't need to optimize anything, since your Internet speed is far below the typical connection capabilities of 802.11AC on 5 GHz. Even if you're planning on streaming local content, you would rarely see streams higher than 60-70 Mbps. That said, ...

Getting the max throughput on a 5GHz network

I just purchased an Asus RT-AC1900P router and installed the Merlin firmware and I was wondering how I can optimize my 5 GHz for the best performance possible with my Roku stick.  I don't know if any of you guys know your advanced wifi settings. What is the network radio of the Roku stick like? All ...

Fluctuating audio levels with Netflix

Hey folks,  Just wondering what's going on here. I've got my Roku stick connected directly to the HDMI port on my home theater receiver and when I'm watching Netflix content (Netflix Canada) the voices are so quiet that I have to crank the volume in order to hear it but when there is music or any ot...
