Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

Does this channel still exist? Is it still supported? I cannot create an account. I get a message saying that SMTP Connect failed. Also, I cannot access their website on the PC. I can only access it on my iPhone. Does anyone know what is going on?

Re: [Private Channel] My Channels: home screen channel organizer

Hi.  This might be a dumb question, but I'm going to ask it anyway.  I have 2 rokus.  I set up MyChannels just to my liking on one Roku.  Is there any way to somehow copy over my settings to another roku?  Or, do I have to go through the whole process all over again on my second roku?  I wager there...

2018 Feature Request

Hi.  Could you post a new topic to post feature requests for 2018?  The 2017 fourth quarter feature request is locked. And, the feature I would like you to consider is the ability to move, delete, add etc. channels via a web browser.  In other words, I'd like the ability to access my Roku's screens ...

Re: Screen Mirroring for iPhone/iPad

Is there any update on this?  Is it still impossible to mirror an iPhone or iPad to a Roku?  Will there ever be the ability to mirror an iPhone or iPad?

Re: [Private Channel] What's On: TV & Movie Listings

I love this channel. Nothing like it on the Roku Channels. I initially downloaded the TV Guide Channel thinking it was...well...a TV Guide (stupid me). But, instead it was just a bunch of very uninteresting videos. Anyway, I would like to make a request. It would be great if it was possible to have ...

Re: Roku channel for NPVR with Search & Schedule

Does this NPVR/NexPVR Private Channel still work? This thread is rather old. I loaded the private channel from http://streamfree.tv/roku-channels/private/all/nextpvr-42-thread.html. I can't find any setup information except the readme file that came with the download and this thread. If it does work...

How to watch live Xfinity TV streaming/Xfitity TV Go on Roku

Hi. I am watching Xfinity online Streaming and Xfinity On Demand on my Roku via Playon. Its functionality is very similar tp the Xfinity TV Go app that you can get on a IOS or Android Device. It works very well. The big strength of Playon is the ability to watch and RECORD this and several other cha...

Re: Roku TV - any plan for OTA program guide?

OK, this might be a solution for you, but it does complicate things a bit. Note that I plan on doing this but haven't yet. So, if anyone has actually done this or has a better idea, please chime in. You can get the Roku Channel NextPVR. Then load NextPVR on a PC on your home network. It looks like y...

Re: Remote Technology Questions.

[quote="RokuMarkn"]Think of it this way: your Roku is obviously connected to your home network, since that's how it streams videos from the internet. This may be a wifi connection (between the Roku and your router), or it may be a wired Ethernet connection (again, between the Roku and your...

Elijah: Thanks for the reply...and I couldn't help but laugh at the response: "The spec to look for in a universal remote to control a Roku is the word "Roku". Well, that seems pretty obvious...maybe I was thinking too hard. But, I am a little confused. You said the following two thi...

Re: Remote Technology Questions.

I would appreciate some clarifications... OK, can someone explain to me Roku's remote technology? Specifically, does the roku remote use IR, or does it control the Roku via wifi, or what???? I assume a remote app on a smart phone uses wifi to control the roku. Even if the roku remote uses wifi (or ...

Re: Feature Requests - First Quarter 2016

I would like a roku "universal remote" that allows at least the control of my TV's volume. Yes, I realize I can get a third party universal remote. But, I don't want to lose the voice features of the roku remote. Plus, I like the small, simple style. So, really all I wan is a roku remote t...

mP3tunes? Comeback? Alternative app for iTunes music?

Hi. The mp3tunes channel is no longer available. Apparently, the company went bankrupt (at least that's what I found on a web post). If you are not familiar with this channel, it allowed you to access your itunes music library and play it via Roku (google "mp3tunes roku" for more info). It...

Also, fewer places to purchase

Another tell-tale sign is that there seems to be no place that carries the Soundbridge except Amazon & Roku. Do a search in Google shopping and then go to the web retailers that come up. Almost all will be a dead page or a "no longer in stock" or "no longer available" message...
