Re: Pausing live tv on Xfinity Instant TV Beta

I actually think Xfinity just cripples the app thinking it can encourage people to go back to traditional cable and set top boxes.

I am able to pause live TV in NBC app (or channel as it is called on Roku but not the Xfinity Instant TV app.

Pausing live tv on Xfinity Instant TV Beta

Someone on the Xfinity forums posted that it is not possible to have the feature to pause live tv on the Roku app because there is no "memory" buffer on the Roku.   Does that sound like a valid answer ?

Re: [Official] 2018 Fall Launch - Roku Ultra + JBL Headphones Feedback

I did not read all 4 pages  but my guess is that this complaint has been echoed,  the Roku Ultra needs some type of audio out whether spdif, 3.5mm (other than on the remote )  or bluetooth.  Granted Fire TV removed the jacks in gen 2 but at least there devices support Bluetooth

Re: Switch "Easily" Between Apps?

Re: Can Roku Ultra play media files from network share ?

DLNA servers provide a lot of services that a simple network share doesn't. DLNA servers will organize the files as well as extract metadata and provide that to dlna clients. This is faster and more efficient then having a simple share client read the folders and then preprocess eash of the files t...
