Re: No Dolby Digital Plus

DD+ fails on my Denon 1612 receiver as well. This has been the case from OS 8 to OS 9.

Re: How to turn home page advertising off?

You can change the ads in the secret menus. There are a few options for replacing it with some pre-release/staging message. You won't reclaim the space but the bright picture will be replaced.

Re: [Official] OS 9 Release Notes

Dolby E-AC3 is still not properly passing through HDMI to my Denon receiver from my TCL 55R617 with OS9. I still get the chirping noise.

Subs are horrible in Roku period. I've gone back to my android player with Kodi for movies.

Re: [Official] Roku OS 8.2

Hello, I purchased the TCL 615 on December 16th, and was updated to 8.2.2 4097-30 as soon as I set it up.  I have the set on a wired connection, as opposed to Ethernet.  On at least four occasions, I've had the TV randomly turn off.  It has happened with different apps, so there's not a common them...

Re: How to stop Roku TV from turning on receiver?

1-Touch play is for switching the TV to another input when that input is activated. That works fine as I have an Android media player hooked up through the AVR and the TV switches over as it should. I wish the TV would switch back to the home screen when the other input is switched off however, inst...

How to stop Roku TV from turning on receiver?

I have a TCL 55R617 TV hooked up to a Denon AVR-1150 receiver with HDMI/ARC and there's no combination of settings that will allow me to use the AVR with ARC or System Audio Control  without having it turn on automatically. With my old Samsung plasma, I could turn on the tv and the receiver would re...

Re: IP Camera Viewer Basic and Pro, fresh out of the oven (ONVIF, RTSP coming soon)

Those of you whose cameras do not support mjpeg can use cam software Blue Iris to stream a mjpeg stream to the app. You can enable the server in the Blue Iris options.

Change the IP to that of your computer running Blue Iris.

Re: How do I disable ads on my homescreen?

You can change the ad source in one of the secret menus. Try one of the staging sources and you'll get an empty space. I didn't leave it for long so it might change to something else over time.

Re: [Official] Roku OS 8.2

Received 8.2 on my TCL TV tonight. So far, it appears that the DD+, DTS issue has been fixed. I will confirm when I get more sources and formats through it however. Otherwise, everything appears to be the same. I did not have to reset any settings, including picture, so that was a nice touch. I don...
