Recently gone again

viewtopic.php?f=28&t=43954&start=15

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
Don

Re: master remote?

Re: New Roku does not get HD or show what connection quality

Why shouldn't the roku 2 display the quality of the video stream. When the quality of the video stream is not right, the end user needs to know if it is an encoding problem, or a communication problem. Is there a setting to start the video stream at a better quality if the user knows they have a goo...

Re: Netflix Video Quality Settings and Roku App.

With the roku 1, the Netflix "better" displays at 2 dots, out of 4 dots and HD. I cannot imagine watching that on a 42" tv. The netflix "good" would be worthless. A better option might be to change your display setting to 19:16 anamorphic on the roku connected to the HD tv. ...

Re: Roku2 vs Sony SMP-N200

Look at the back of the Sony, no skimping. Component and Optical Audio. I could care less about 3D, in fact I avoid it at the theaters. But if the Sony performs and delivers the main content providers, it look like the better deal. The reviews should be in by Christmas. I stopped using those legacy...

Re: Roku 2 does not stream Netflix in HiDef/5.1

OK. I stand corrected. I missed this, and now I look stupid. My bad. I will shut up now and decide what to do with the R2 box. Thanks to all. You do not look stupid. That is ridiculously well buried. That should be on their front page, printed in red. The people defending netflix for using a format...

Re: Upgrade Program?

I am sure they will have an upgrade incentive in the future.
1 month before the roku 3 is announced.

The important Upgrade Program is to the firmware on the Roku1. Will there ever be another release. If not, that would weigh heavily in the decision to purchase any roku product in the future. CC
