Re: Roku equivalent

The hardware in the TVs is specific for TV models; that is, it's not the same as in any of the Roku set top boxes . The software is basically the same as on set top boxes, with some enhancement to support TV-specific functionality. --Mark I believe what mark is saying here is that the TV manufactur...

Re: Interesting

But I guess my misgivings are unfounded as the story includes a link to what appears to be a legitimate Roku announcement: http://www.rokuki.com/roku-announces-hybrid-streaming-box-with-partners/ If you scroll to the bottom of that page, and look closely, you'll see: Rokuki, Roku news, reviews and ...

I'd put it on a book or tablet or whatever else is handy that's hard just to be safe, especially if it's a Roku4.

Re: Roku 3 connected to wifi during setup, now it wont

I'd bet it was this sequence. Rebooting everything in that order can fix a lot of network problems.
9. Shut off TV, then Roku, then the router.
10. Turned on the router.
11. Turned on roku and TV.

Re: Live TV Streaming Channels

^ Your post seems a little deceptive. If you want to advertise your channel why not just ask people to give it a try?

Re: Roku 4 remote draining batteries by itself?

The earphones will drain the batteries if you use them a lot, or leave them plugged into the remote when you aren't using them.
What you're seeing isn't normal.

Re: Wide Variety of Roku 4 Issues

The Roku 4 gets roughly 6-7 hours of use with the headphones in a 24 hour period.

Rechargeables are probably the best solution for that much use.

Re: USB power cable voltage concerns for Roku 2

I'd exchange the Roku2 for an HDMI Stick. It's designed for use on wall hung tvs and comes with a USB power cord and adapter.
It also costs less. https://www.roku.com/products/streaming-stick
