Re: Bit Rate Override question

I am very confused.  How does adjusting the bit rate , which I thought was speed,  affect data use? I want to limit my data use because of data caps,   Will adjusting the display type affect data use or is that just for how it is displayed.  Do I need to change bit rate,  or  display type  or both? ...

data useage

I have  some questions about data useage . On my roku,  there is a setting for display  type.  It can be set to  720p,  1080p   etc.  Does this affect  how the video is downloaded (does it affect data useage) ?   If not, what does it affect,  What would  be the affect of the 2 above settings on a 72...

Re: Ultra headphone issues

I have been disappointed in the ultra remote , not because of the sound quality but because of the battery drain.  For me the sound quality was ok,  but it drained battery too much. I have started using the remote app on my kindle when i want to use the headphones.   Controll the volume with the  vo...

Re: Roku ultra and harmony 650 remote

The Harmony 650 is extremely programmable, and I believe it might contain a Roku configuration, or be able to download one. I have two, but it's been so long since I've used them they aren't even programmed for any of my existing equipment. The wife would rather stick with the standard remotes, bec...

Re: Roku ultra and harmony 650 remote

Yes, you can program a button to switch the input on your TV to the Roku input and have it perform any number of button presses at that time. The manual tells how to do all that. Why don't you download a copy of the manual and see if what all it will do will work for you? A search for "harmony...

Re: Roku ultra and harmony 650 remote

The buttons will work however you program them to work. For instance, if you want "Menu" to act as the Home button, it will if you tell it to.  The Harmony interface should allow you to program any button to any function. Hmmm, ok.  I do not know how much  about how this remote works.  I ...

Roku ultra and harmony 650 remote

From what I can find out, the harmony 650 should at least partially work with the roku ultra (since it has IR) , is that true? But how well does it work?  Does  the harmony 650  have a button that corresponds to the home button on the roku?  And does it have one that corresponds to the arrow button ...

Re: roku optical connection question

Some soundbars have multiple inputs, so other devices can be connected at the same time. Others have HDMI that supports ARC, so a TV can send its audio back via the HDMI cable. The best soundbars will have both, and you can connect your Roku and other devices via HDMI and the soundbar handles all t...

roku optical connection question

This is just a question for my information.  Sorry if this is not the place to post it. My roku does not have an optical connection, but I am curious about how it  would be  used.   If you use the optical connection from the roku to the soundbar,  how do you get sound to the soundbar when not viewin...

Re: HELP! Roku won't stop talking

None of this is working for me. I have searched every inch of the settings, no accessibility tab, no audio guide, and *4 times does nothing. Help! It is driving me nuts. I know my kid did something but I can’t figure it out at all. Maybe it would help someone to help you if you told what model of R...

Re: Roku stick can't connect to internet

I recently had problem connecting a new roku.  I doubt it is the same problem but just it case  I do not remember error code. I have a  different router,  a netgear.  It has a setting to prevent new devices from connecting to the internet unless activated.  I had been playing around  with the router...

Re: roku and soundbar

OK, it's Friday and I get easily confused.  :lol: I see what you mean about that particular image, but I believe I have an explanation. Remember that this guide is strictly for getting sound from your Roku player. The most likely purposely omitted the TV to soundbar connection as it has nothing to ...

Re: roku and soundbar

Ok, I believe I follow you now. Your setup will depend on both the soundbar and the TV.  Scenario 1: TV and soundbar support ARC. Connect all devices to your TV and send the audio to your soundbar via HDMI. Potential issue: your TV might not send Dolby Digital + and/or DTS from the Roku back to the...
