Netflix shortcut button problem

The shortcut buttons are supposed to ask before launching when you are in a video, the Netflix button doesn't do that.

Re: Roku Ultra flashing during streaming and switching to input

I had a similar issue but mine was letting the TV try to switch refresh rates in the advance picture setting. I just wanted to test it since the Roku is probably better at handling it than the TV so leaving it off was my intention anyway. My understanding is that 4.2.0 is going to be visually indist...

Re: Netflix issues

edit-- Regarding HDR, turns out Season 1 of Stranger Things either isn't HDR or just isn't making it to me that way. I tested season 2 and a Vudu movie and both are reporting HDR on the Hisense. For the Samsung, I'm not sure. ---end edit I'm having to get that info off the Hisense. It's an h8 series...

Re: Roku stick and projector

As someone who sells AV equipment I understand the dilema. Audio equipment typically wants to be first and hopefully support direct pass through. I however want my video equipment to come first as the video is much more likely to get messed up than the audio. Projectors typically only support the f...

Re: release notes

I see, that's for the 8.0 release. I was hoping 8.1 would fix a few issue but it did not. I'm curious what it did.

Netflix issues

Netflix isn't triggering HDR on my TVs. One is a Samsung 8000 and the other is a Hisense. Also, the * button no longer brings up stream info. Please bring that back as it helps diagnose stream issues. My TV reports 8-bit color depth with 4.2.2 and 10-bit with 4.2.0 is this normal? The replay functio...

Weather Underground still broken

The Weather Underground interface was broken in software 8.0 and is still broken. The map screen is no longer in the right area but instead just drops in on top of the background. It seems like WU has abandoned the app but I'm hoping someone can fix it. Does anyone know of another app that does the ...

release notes

Roku used to post release notes with software updates. Where can I find it for the 8.1 release that just went live?

It's been a while since I've been active in the forums.

Re: need help with media server

It's not that any particular video won't play. None play unless I either reboot the server or refresh it. Refreshing it rebuilds the database I think and is much faster. I didn't get far with Plex and didn't do any forwarding. RMP and Chaneru find the server so I gave up on Plex pretty fast. I'm thi...

Re: need help with media server

Mp4 and I'm fairly sure it's direct playing. My server doesn't transcode.

Re: need help with media server

What kind of video files are these? mkv? mp4? Have you tried accessing pictures or songs on this media server? Unfortunately it looks like the Belkin home base has been discontinued, I was about to go to Fry's and pick one up for testing. What firmware version of homebase are you using? I think I'm...

Re: need help with media server

When I come into RMP after using another channel it will see the server, read the files, and start loading a video. It gets stuck on the loading screen and gives an error saying it's disconnected and to check my network. My PS3 and Channeru both work even after that. If I reboot the server while RMP...

Re: need help with media server

Its a belkin homebase. Plex said it refused connection.

Channeru works great but the ui is too complex for a media player. The media channel from Roku is better designed but refuses to work without a server reboot.

Re: need help with media server

My server is hardware so I can't use Plex. I tried, it only accepts Plex servers.
