Re: Express plus not waking up

I experience exactly the same issue that started on both Express+ units after 8.1 software update. I factory reset the units, but as soon as it gets the latest firmware, the issue persists. Swapped the TV inputs - the same. Changed the HDMI cables - the same. My workaround is clumsy, but works for m...

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

I know this type too - you are always right... I was wrong trying the app offered by a company (if only had I known), I will be right switching to the Android TV :)) As they say, don't let the door hit you on the way out. Looking forward to your departure. Thank you for your best wishes...also, you...

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

Can you please post a screenshot, and your serial number?  We've had a couple of reports about this, but I can't reproduce it. You can upload a screenshot to IMGUR.com or similar service.  Once the image is uploaded, click on it and click the BBCODE link to copy and past into this thread. Thanks! H...

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

I agree that an android box will have more freedom and flexibility. But if you think Roku is locked down, try something like that on an Apple device.   :P Best of luck finding the device that's right for you.  Yes, another lesson learned not to go with a proprietary platform... Roku does not seem t...

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

I understand your point. But Roku has changed their policy about developer mode access recently, and it unfortunately means that users that are not actual developers are no longer permitted to access developer mode. It's a shame they have been forced into this position, but I understand the legalit...

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

@MikeS - you are missing the point. If Roku does not like specific apps for whatever reason, remove and block those apps and not the ability to side-load. Also, I don't believe I was asking for your advice where to complain, but sure appreciate the pointers... Ah, you just like to complain. I know ...

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

@Basil - No worries... I clearly stated that I am an end user that was provided the app by ETVnet during their free trial and as a result of the installation of that app Roku disabled developer mode on all my devices... I strongly disagree with the premise of punishing the end users for installing ...

Basil - the URL you provided does not have contact information for a Roku developer's group... What is their email?

@Basil - I believe the initial author of this thread already replied "They said their app does not violate any Roku terms and referred me to Roku tech support. ",

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

@ atc98092  - 1)  There is nothing in the end-user agreement prohibiting side-loading either...  2) Comparing jail-breaking an iPhone with side-loading is not accurate to say the least... By jail-breaking the iPhone you are circumventing security measures and gaining access to critical root ...

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

@denhow - thanks for the link, very helpful. To provide more details, ETVnet offered a free trial of their service and as part of this trial provided the Roku app to be installed. As the end user trying to evaluate the service, I have no knowledge of any copyright violations by a company. in additio...

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

Are you saying that Roku does not receive any money when I buy their devices?? If this app is questionable, why would not Roku remove the app from my device (they are perfectly capable of doing that) instead of completely denying my ability to side-load any applications?

Re: Roku issue - App installer (Dev Mode) disabled after installing ETVNET app [BEWARE!]

I am in the same boat. This is the app that the company offers on their official Web site. Why is the end user punished? How are we supposed to know if the app is in violation of any copyright law???If Roku wants to play these games with the customers who gave them the money, I will gladly trash all...
