I'm out of here

This board is no longer at all a pleasant place to be and Roku is no longer a pleasant company to deal with. I received a warning pertaining to this post in a beta forum: There are numerous threads about Netflix's stupid moves that made the channel quite unpleasant to use over in the main forum. I c...

Re: Roku 2 not working with new Insignia TV

Yes, I've tested both tv and roku with other devices. Both products work fine, just not together... Weird. Have you considered getting them into partner counseling? I bet there is something in the handshake causing the problem. You might want to send a PM to RokuShawnS with the details of your setu...

Re: Roku 2 XS freezing and restarting

Since Roku checks for updates whenever it reboots the fact that reboot time equals check for update time does not mean that the check is causing the reboot as the reboot will always cause the check. Something is causing the reboots but it, most probably, cannot be the check for updates. The problem ...

Re: Copy settings from one Roku3 to another

Hi All I set up a Roku3 last week and bought another today Is there an easy way to copy all the settings/prefs/channels from the first unit to the new one? Then is there also an easy way for both of them to mirror changes made on one or the other for consistency, or are they always standalone and m...

Re: Questions about streaming UV to Roku

I have a roku xr (n1101), software version 3.1 (up to date). But I can't find VUDU. Is there a minimum device required for VUDU channel? It think VuDu requires ver 5.x of the software and that is not available on the earlier Rokus. Try Target Ticket, I think it may work on the low end Rokus but I a...

Re: Need a way to shut off Roku 3 so my HDMI port Switcher w

There are remote control power strips on the market. Also, you could consider replacing your automatic HDMI switch with one with a "manual" mode; that's what I'm using. My Harmony universal remote sends a code to switch to the appropriate input when I switch activities. Yep, I use this sw...

Re: Sorting Amazon Prime or Watchlist?

Before anyone mentions it I know there is a sort option on the web site that switches between date added and alpha but even that limited option does not stick and it does not apply to the Roku at all.

Re: Sorting Amazon Prime or Watchlist?

Go to, manage your watch list, on your computer @ Amazon.com. Make sure your logged in, you can add and remove programs from your account. I know I can add or remove but there seems to be no way to sort. Adding and removing is not the issue. Even just the ability to move a title from position 15 to...

Sorting Amazon Prime or Watchlist?

Does anyone know if there is a way to sort the Watchlist or Prime lists on Amazon. Netflix allows, at least for now, the manual sorting of their watchlist and there are 3rd party tools, like the Amazon queue sorter, that automate the process. However I cannot find any similar function/tool/ability f...

Re: Questions about streaming UV to Roku

Wow, I have a few UV movies that I received via receiving BluRays as gifts. Can these mega corporate content providers make it any harder to view legally licensed content? They are so clueless. The CEOs of these companies should see if they can get their wives to use the service and view it from th...

Re: How to turn off ads?

Nope. It's part of the product and a major reason the Roku products are so cheap. They're not cheap. If I wanted cheap I'd get a chromecast; I wanted a streaming solution that worked as opposed to something that looked nice. Is there a way I can alter the machine's HOSTS file or something? My route...

Re: Netflix subtitles fixed today - I think!

Problem fixed: Netflix running on ROKU automatically turned of subtitles. ... What do you mean? Even reading "of" as "off" still makes no sense as the on/off setting of subtitles has been for some time automatically setting back to off after each show completes. That is if I wat...

Re: New Netflick Interface....F+

It's true! It now takes ONE MORE BUTTON PRESS after you hit "Home" to get back to the channel grid. It's Roku's device. It's their menu. I'm not sure why you think you get to decide what's "correct" and "incorrect" for them. You're welcome to not like it, but don't pre...
