Re: No show pictures in apps

Yep this deserves a bump every day until roku responds. It happens on my roku lt, it does not happen on my newer roku. Don Your LT doesn't even support 1080. The hardware seems equivalent to my 2 XS, which I stopped using over a year ago because of poor performance. As the channel developers create...

Re: Multiple Routers

Begin by buying 1 router to replace theirs. If it doesn't cover the area, then buy another. You didn't mention your bandwidth, so it it hard to say how much you should pay for a router. ASUS brand has fairly simple setup for using their product as your main router, or as a repeater. Before you make ...

Re: Is Pluto constantly streaming when app open

Some unlucky folks may have data caps https://broadbandnow.com/internet-providers-with-data-caps Luckily I am not capped. But roku and netflix  and others should consider those unlucky users who might have need to throttle their internet usage. If those users buy a newer roku, their internet usage w...

Re: Is Pluto constantly streaming when app open

It would be good if Roku could add an option or app requirement that nothing streams unless the end user presses select or play.

Re: ROKU blue screen and subnet mask

You are 100% correct on the illegal subnet.
I should have checked the setting before trying to join it, but my windows machine and cell connected without issue.
Must be the roku just would not put up with it.
But still, the roku should have displayed an error instead of a boot loop.
Thank you

Re: Netflix new annoying auto preview when browsing will make me cancel for good.

I did call Netflix, and I did sign the petition. Then I posted here. Roku is a huge base for netflix. They could request an option for a Netflix Classic to be available in the Roku store. Roku might be able to give us a setting that request the older version when connecting to the store. Imagine how...

Re: Netflix new annoying auto preview when browsing will make me cancel for good.

I bought a new Roku, What a mistake. Couldn't Roku give us an option to use the older Netflix interface instead of this irritating mess. The older interface was functional. This new interface is not. I have to move really fast to avoid the auto-preview, and god forbid I forget to hit Mute. Then in s...

Recently gone again

I hope this is just temporary. Roku 1

And OT, what is wrong with responding to an old thread. Why would ignoring history be a good thing?

Re: i want to stream at a lower quality

On my Roku 1, I set it to Anamorphic 16:9. I did not change the cable, HDMI as before.
With this setting it would display 4 dots max, never hd.

To display correctly, I had to adjust the width at the tv, it displayed very tall narrow people.

Re: [Private Channel] What's On: UPDATED - now has TV Listin

As others have said, very nice and very needed.

Problem. about One in 3 clicks gets a 403 server not found error.
This happens on both the tv and movie listings.

A request for the TV listing would be a button to display a Prime Time listing.

Thank you
