Re: Problem screen mirroring

Both my Rokus (SS/SS+  models 3800/3810) updated to 9.1.0 Build 4919 in the last couple of weeks. SS is connected to the 2.4Ghz WLAN, SS+ is connected to the 5Ghz WLAN. Tested them again with all my Screen Mirroring/Miracast capable Android devices, different manufacturers/models/OS versions - all c...

Re: Screen mirroring not working

Screen mirroring from a Windows computer is usually more of a Windows issue rather than a Roku problem. Windows has very specific hardware requirements for it to work. I have found the screen mirroring works fine from Android devices, and it's almost impossible from Apple devices. There's just no &...

Re: Problem screen mirroring

FWIW, Screen Mirroring is working/has worked on my Roku devices (3800/3810 - SS/SS+) on OS 9.1, all builds (4095/4111) for all Android devices (several different manufacturers/several different Android versions) without issue. I recommend disabling/enabling WiFi on your Android devices if its having...

Re: HDR Not working

I'll reach out as well, but my patience is wearing thin with Roku. I get that way when I feel that someone is trying to rip me off. And that is exactly how I feel with Roku. I bought these devices. Roku broke them. We can't go through Roku support because apparently they don't care. We have to come...

Re: Prime Video - No Forced Subtitles

Checked this on my SS and SS+ (3800 & 3810), both running OS version 9.0.0-4142 and Amazon Prime version 10.8-2019011508 with both 4K/UHD/HDR streams and HD/SDR streams, all "forced" subtitles (and enabled subtitles/CC) were present on all streams on both devices (using Jack Ryan and W...

Re: Mirroring no longer working

That's a Windows 10 error message  - not a Roku one Most likely your Windows 10 install was updated (without your specific consent or knowledge) sometime after monthly updates were released on Tuesday earlier this week (known each month as "Patch Tuesday"). One or more of the updates likel...

Re: HDR Not working

HDR isn't broken on these devices with the latest firmware - the huge vast majority of users are using it just fine. The reason "most people dont realize it isnt working", is, in fact, because it is.  It isnt "a bigger issue" because it isnt, in fact, a bigger issue. HDR is worki...

Re: No casting options from Android

I'm not a big advocate/user of "casting" via cast-enabled apps, since my device usage is not mobile-based. That being said, I've app-casted successfully (with occasional minor issues) in the past, from my Galaxy J3 phone and Galaxy Tab A  to all my cast-enabled apps on all my devices. Rega...

Re: Roku Stick not sending Dolby Digital 5.1 to TV

For your setup, the stream has to be encoded in DD (AC3) in order for it to be passed, and since nearly every major streaming service is now streaming in DD+ (EAC3), you of course wont be getting a DD (AC3) signal passed unless you can find a streaming service/channel that does so (good luck, though...

Re: Broken Roku Ultra? Why does everything downmix to PCM stereo??

There isn't an app that I'm aware of on the Roku that currently uses DD rather than DD+. The last holdout was HBO, and they switched to DD+ last month. If your receiver supports it, PCM can use Prologic II, which does a good job of converting 2 channel to 5 channel. By the way, you "tested&quo...

Re: XBox 1 S and X To Get Dolby Vision HDR Via Firmware Update

Unfortunately its Insider Preview Program only at this point, rolling out over several weeks, and only for NF. Regardless, bodes well for an October timeframe general release, hopefully with system-wide app support. Clearly though, the support for "Australian English" is the most important...

Re: Amazon HDR and Streaming Stick+

Confirmed working here (US) again too, with a SS+ (3810).

Interestingly, my LG UHD TV also had an AP app update on the same day, though it was never missing the HDR support at any point.

Re: Amazon HDR and Streaming Stick+

While recent RokuOS versions/builds most certainly have their share of significant problems and issues, and should be disclosed/acknowledged/fixed, the AP "HDR missing again" issue is on Amazon's shoulders, not Roku's, though it is in Roku's interest to help sort it out, as it is their hig...
