Re: Roku premiere + Audio distortion when using digital out from TV

Might try (1) uninstall RMP (Roku media player), (2) restart your Roku, (3) reinstall RMP. do not skip step 2
Then try the RMP, and see if it sounds better.

Re: Roku Primiere+ - No Sound until restart

Maybe the heat is not from the surface, but from the Roku. Wood or glass (shelfs) are poor heat conductors while metal is a good heat conductor.  I'm just saying that I have the same Roku 4630X with the same software (version 8.1.0 build 4159-29), with 5 hours plus use daily for almost 2 years, with...

Re: Roku Primiere+ - No Sound until restart

I seem to be the only one posting with a Premiere + (4630X) with NO sound problems (version 8.1.0 build 4159-29). I probably use my Premiere + just like everyone else; except that I have my Premiere + inside a TV stand, setting on top of an unused VCR (VCR has thin metal top, was part of a 1997 Dire...

Re: Roku premiere + Audio distortion when using digital out from TV

I have a Premiere + connected to a Sony TV. Then use a headphone to 2 RCA cable to connect Sony TV to Pioneer stereo. Buy a good quality cable; cheap ones (< $3) sound bad. Sony TV:  *  headphone./ audio out -- set on audio out;  *  audio out -- set on variable. (can control volume of 35-year old Pi...

Dec 2016 I bought a Premiere + (4630X). Currently use Netflix, YouTube, DirecTV Now. Premiere + HDMI connected to Sony TV and uses either TV speakers or TVs 'audio out' to a Pioneer stereo. My Premiere + (version 8.1.0 build 4159-29) works perfectly and does not have any sound problems. This Sony TV...

Re: DirecTV Now turns off randomly

DTV Now app works good on my Roku 2 (4210), and Premiere + (4630). Both Rokus have DTV Now app version 2.8 build 54. Programs stream good with no HOME page interruption. DTV Now also works good on my Windows 10 desktop with Chrome browser. 
I've only used Sling TV prior to Aug 2018, which worked good.

Re: Previous channel button or seletion on Directv Now ?

If you want a previous channel remote key you could switch to Sling TV. This Sling TV feature works great with my Roku 2 (4210) & Premiere+ and GE 4-device remotes (works with Roku remote also).  For example (for SLING TV):  * you viewed channel A (TNT), then switched to channel B (FS1), then sw...

Re: Really weird problem: All but one or two remote buttons not responding

Check info that came with your GE remote (in Streaming Media Player section).  I checked for GE remote codes online and there appears to be a code list 3 (CL3) and a code list 4 (CL4). If you remove batteries, you will see a white Made in China label, label should also list remote model number and C...

I use 2 of the GE remotes for Roku 2 (4210) and Premiere+, GE remotes work great. You might buy the can of air, alcohol, and glue, and s...
