Re: Roku 3400x converts Plex 1080p to 720p

My TV does support 24fps.  So does the BD Player that the MHL stick is plugged into .  (I've also tried the MHL stick straight into my AVR, same result). MHL devices are only supposed to work when connected to another device with an MHL port. From what I can find, your  Samsumg F8500 doesn't ha...

Re: Roku 3400x converts Plex 1080p to 720p

I wasn't aware of that, but if that's the case, perhaps that's related to my issue, however I just checked my videos and they do appear to be almost 24fps... My TV does support 24fps.  So does the BD Player that the MHL stick is plugged into.  (I've also tried the MHL stick straight into my AVR, sam...

Re: Plex won't send 1080p to my Roku.

Wow thanks.  I thought I overlooked something and was gunna be fixed.  But now it's weirder than ever.  There is a setting in the plex roku app for local quality.  I set that to original (it wasn't before).  Now plex doesn't transcode, it is direct play. But Roku still output 720p.  I've tried it in...

Re: 3400x MHL stick and 1080p

Basically if you get 1080p and I don't, then it confirms it's somehow my problem, not roku's.  But if we both have same issue, then it's prolly a roku problem.   Since I can't easily test Netflix, and you confirmed prime is also 720p, any free channel that's 1080p for you would be useful to know so ...

Re: Plex won't send 1080p to my Roku.

In case one asks why even bother to use plex on roku then, I'll answer that now, didn't include it in the first post cuz it's basically irrelevant. My Tivo (Roamio OTA) has audio limitations Roku doesn't have.  The only surround format it accepts is AC3 5.1, so DTS and EAC3 get transcoded to AC3 5.1...

Roku 3400x converts Plex 1080p to 720p

I have a plex server and no problem watching 1080p content on other plex devices like my TiVo or my TVs built in plex app. Is this just me or do others get 1080p in Plex?  Anything I can do about it?   [Yes, I have the Roku set to 1080p]. In fact, I didn't find any roku channel doing 1080p, includin...

Re: 3400x MHL stick and 1080p

Ok.  Hmmm.  Well I don't have a netflix account and the netflix signup menu stays 720p.   What I really want is plex to work in 1080, but my assumption after finding this thread, was that it was a firmware bug affecting everything.  I wonder why Amazon Prime isn't in 1080p tho.  I don't usually watc...

Re: 3400x MHL stick and 1080p

So you get 1080p with FW9? Besides plex, I tried amazon prime, roku channel, vevo, and a few others, couldn't get anything in 1080p at all. Yes. On channels that support 1080p video my device will switch over to it and my TV will show the switch from 720p to 1080p. Can you give me an example of suc...

Re: 3400x MHL stick and 1080p

I have firmware 9.0.0 build 4115-05 , but Plex transcodes to 720p.  I have Roku set to 1080p, and menu is displayed in 720p (not 1080i as mentioned above for fw8). I don't have netflix account so cannot test that incase it's different, however plex works fine on my tivo at 1080p, just no 7.1 sound l...
