RVing with Roku

We plan to be traveling the country by RV for about a year, camping mostly in RV parks. Already know not to depend on their wifi for streaming, so we will have some kind of unlimited 4G hotspot access of our own. Since this will be our "network" the Roku and any streaming apps should recog...

Re: Post deleted?

That's the one. Would have been nice to inform me it had been moved. How old is this forum software? Almost every forum I have been in the past 10 years or so shows when a post has been moved to another forum. smh Wouldn’t the Off Topic Forum be where it belongs? It’s not “Roku Streaming Player Gen...

Re: I just don't understand

Yet another day of the forum overrun by SPAM. How hard would it be to institute an e-mail validation after signup and prior to being able to post? The vast majority of online forums have this simple requirement of users. The spam looks like manual spam, not bot generated. That solution wouldn’t mat...

Re: I just don't understand

Why something can't be done about the spammers? It's ridiculous. Not really. Just after they post. You can stop robots. But actual human spammers? Nope. They have to post first. Then you squash 'em. I was a moderator for a military forum for about seven years. Spammers , trolls and stupid arguments...

Re: I just don't understand

They have Mods shortage And probably limited fund? Just guessing on this one :-) It costs them nothing to make a few long-time users moderators with limited powers that can delete the SPAM posts regularly. Living on the east coast they overwhelm the forum making it almost unreadable until the Admin...

Re: I just don't understand

While it is nice for a company to offer a support forum such as this, I agree that it is lazy for them to allow it to be treated like this and shows little concern for the users to have to be subjected to it. Not a good face for your company, Roku.

Re: Which codecs are passed-through by Roku Media Player?

I would say the Roku doesn't "passthrough" anything, rather there are some codecs it will transcode and some it will just ignore. If it could actually passthrough audio then we wouldn't have the issues with HD audio that we currently have and it would make our lives so much simpler and enj...

Re: Dolby Digital/ 5.1 surround sound audio

I have a new Roku Premiere connected via HDMI to my TV with optical audio out from TV to AVR. No matter what audio setting I use, I get no surround sound from the Roku. If I watch Netflix via the onboard tv app I get surround sound- if I use the Roku app I don't (nothing via Roku plays in surround ...

Re: CAPS!!!! Overusage with AT &T

Having new members wait for their posts to be approved by a mod for 14 days after signup would help cut the SPAM and still give them access to answers. If someone truly in need of help thinks they can get instantaneous response to their posts in here then they are misinformed. Too often I see newbie...

Re: The Reason Roku Does Not Support Lossless Audio Playback

We should now be able to pass through the 7.1 channels encoded in DTS HD-Master, as of the OS 9.0+ release. Wow, really? Checking this out. Pretty much the only reason why I use the Nvidia Shield. Might want to give a heads up to Plex about this. Edit: Well, sure enough. I started a 4K movie with D...
