Re: What is wrong with Netflix today?

Glad to see they're working on this, and it's not just me. I have the ORIGINAL Roku (FKA "Netflix Player"). Any Series I want to watch comes up "Content Unavailable". I first tried with Chuck, but when I got this message I checked Google to see if they had simply lost the license...

Re: Warning - Roku 2 XS boxes are country specific

It would be nice if they would offer on their website a firmware patch to switch your country. What about military members who move around? What about businessmen who have to travel to another country for a few months for work? Or what about people who for whatever reason make a big move? They sudde...

Re: Official Showtime Channel discussion

I wonder if they will give more content during "free preview weekends". Now, if only they could offer a stand-alone subscription that would be great. I'd gladly pay $5-10/month to be able to watch shows like Dexter. The way it is now I'd have to pay $80/month more for the same content as I...

Re: Why Commercials every few minutes

Personally, I don't have a lot of money to spend, so I don't mind the commercials. I would rather watch commercials than have to pay out of pocket. Yes, I pay Hulu and Netflix, but this is still far cheaper than paying a cable company or paying Amazon 2 bucks a pop for a single episode of a TV show.

Re: Crackle channel not working properly

Funny thing is, it's working today. Yesterday the categories showed up but were all empty. The only rows which showed were "log in" and "search". Today it's back to normal.

Re: Crackle channel not working properly

Is it still FREE? I was a little irritated when I tried to enter the channel and got a log-in box shoved in my face with no access to any content until I do. I really don't want to have to pay for yet another channel if I can avoid it.

Re: Hulu Voices and Mouths out of whack

Happens ALL the time for me. I find it too distracting, so I exit the video and when I return to it, things are usually synched back up again. Of course, I STILL get Hulu crashes quite a bit too, and my box either reboots itself or it locks up and I have to pull the power plug. I wonder if buying a ...

Re: HULU+ Locks Up or No Response

I have the Roku N1000 (original Netflix Player, the one that started it all). I sometimes have these problems in Hulu+, and it sometimes freezes my box. I usually reboot by yanking the power cord and when it comes back up things are working properly. It also could be related to your connection. How ...

Re: HD TV with no HDMI input- can I get HD from a Roku?

and IIRC, the component WILL give you HD (not 1080p, but I think you can get some level of HD). It's the S-Video available on the N-1000 that won't.

Re: HD TV with no HDMI input- can I get HD from a Roku?

Roku 2, no dice.... It's HDMI or nothing. (well, you can have composite via a funky cable but that's nowhere near HD) Roku 1, yes you can use Component using a custom cable. If you can find one of the original model (N-1000, originally called the Netflix Box) you can even have component without usin...

Re: HuluPlus Channel gets updated. Still sucks.

A few times (since this was updated) I have been watching a newer episode of House, when the audio was out of sync with both the captions and the video. Leaving the channel and going back in fixes it, but it is annoying to have to do this. I've been lucky enough the last few days to not have Hulu fr...

Re: How I Met Your Mother on Netflix Roku.. No where else.

At one time there were a few episodes available through Nowhereman TV.... Under Entertainment > Lifetime Network. I'm not sure if they're still there, and there's not many of them, but there were a few there a couple weeks ago.

Re: Is this really the new remote?

Yeah, I bet they paid a bundle for those buttons. Didn't Netflix say they HAD to raise prices because they were losing money, and now they pay for this? I'm pretty sure most people buying the Roku are doing so FOR Netflix... so do they need the additional advertising? And I see the future of this be...

Re: CNN debate tonight on ROKU?

Most of the debates have been on JustinTV, as someone decided to share them. I was going to watch last night, but GF vetoed the idea and cut over to NetFlix.

Re: FoxNews.com - Live Streaming the Debate?

Justin TV had it, just like they had the MSNBC one about a month ago. As could be predicted, they focused mainly on Mitt Perry and Rick Romney (same wolf, different sheep costume) and ignored most other candidates. My stream was great until the person who started the channel went offline during the ...
