Re: Don't get the big deal with the ads...

This objection is very valid, the first that wasn't just "I hate ads and I shouldn't have to see them on my Roku". Which is still a valid objection, just not realistic. Also it depends on what the viewer considers to be 'ads'...when I log into Rhapsody, for example, I expect so see 'annou...

Re: Have you got the new interface update yet?

They probably didn't get the email Roku sent them. :o You would be surprised, or maybe not, at how many people do not read emails except for those from a select few. For some people testing has replaced email, or talking on the phone, or even face to face. I know of several folks, mostly young, tha...

Doesn't matter. If a channel isn't met for that version of a Roku box it isn't supposed to be installed on that box.


I think jenico is saying that it shows as installed to the account on the website.



Whose website?

Re: Help! Info please? New to streaming media

I have internet service into my house. Sometimes it is not the greatest, but most of the time, I am connected at 54.0. It lloks like it will be fast enough. After watching several of the Youtube videos on Roku, I am not sure that it will really do what I want. I am looking to cut back my Directv bi...

Re: Say goodbye to Amazon on Roku?

Amazon was the second service on Roku, six months after Netflix. The two companies have a long relationship when it comes to streaming. Amazon makes money renting movies. The more they rent, the more money they make. All the money Roku users spend for streaming from Amazon goes to Amazon. Removing ...

Re: Should I upgrade

That's what an upgrade will get you. And speed. My Roku 2 is a good bit faster than my Roku 1. My Roku 3 is significantly faster than both. ^^THIS^^ The speed of the R3 makes it a pleasure to use, and the remote headphone capability is icing on the cupcake. 8) Still, never get rid of your 'old' Rok...

Re: Second person private audio possible on Roku3?

From what I gather, only 1 remote will receive audio at one time. I resolve this by using a stereo splitter, and each set of headphones has an in-line volume slider. I can listen as loud as I want, while my wife can listen as soft as she wants. 8) Cheers!

Re: Roku 3 shows up as a wifi hotspot

It does nothing for security. This is a fact, not an opinion, and it doesn't matter how many people you can find who believe this myth. But Mark, combine hiding your SSID with MAC filtering and your impenetrable. ;) How do you figure hiding your SSID and MAC filtering make your network more secure?...

Re: Roku Not Connecting to Wireless. Nothing Works.

Ha, the amount of effort I have put in to it is insane. 2+ hours on the phone with Roku people. 1 hr chatting on the internet with a Roku representative. I tried all of the above things. It really shouldn't have to be something that I have to fix in my router. I changed channels, and took every sug...
