Re: Roku 3 audio distortion in certain channels

I didn't think "line level" existed in the digital world. Since this seems to be a problem with at least the YouTube and Vudu apps, it seems to be more of a global issue that should be address by Roku.

Roku 3 audio distortion in certain channels

I have a Roku 3 connected to an LG TV via HDMI, which is connected to a Boston Acoustics 2.1 powered speaker system via optical digital out from the TV. The Roku is set to stereo sound. My problem is this: the audio level is much louder is most non-Netflix channels, so much so that in loud portions ...

Re: Netflix and Roku Upgrade

Also curious if this will make it to the brand new Roku 1 and 2. Seems like poor planning if these new devices will never even see this update.

Re: Should I upgrade my Roku 2 XD?

Thanks for the input. Cost is obviously a factor, however I can recoup some of the cost of upgrading by selling my current unit. So would the 2710 or 2720 be faster than my current unit, or would I need to jump up to the 4200?

Should I upgrade my Roku 2 XD?

I have a Roku 2 XD. I love it, but sometimes the unit is slow. Especially when navigating Hulu Plus. Would upgrading my unit to one of the newer models help speed it up? I'm totally happy with the features of my current unit, so speed is really the only factor here.

Thanks for the advice.

Re: A small fee about $5 to turn off ads on the Roku.

The ads don't bother me, although I would pay a good amount of money to remove them. I understand Roku's need for revenue, but I also value a clutter-free home screen and would be willing to pay for it.

Re: PBS channel turns on Closed Captioning part way through

I experienced the same issue. I was guessing PBS encoded the CC text on the screen, and uploaded the wrong video file.

Re: PBS and PBS Kids are finally live!

The new PBS channel is great. It may be my new most-watched Roku channel. One issue I noticed while watching several This Old House episodes on my Roku 2 (5.0) is that the audio is a bit out of sync with the video. I'm wondering if this is an isolated issue or if this is a more general problem. Also...

Re: Huffington Post to launch live channel

Looks like the Huffington Post channel is live in the app store. Lots of news talk and discussion -- and not a lot of news reporting. Overall, a great addition to the box. It will be interesting to see how they handle major breaking news events.

Re: Roku Buyers Remorse

Regardless of which one you get, you won't be locked in because you can easily sell Rokus on Amazon. You'll get a decent price for it if it's in "like new" condition.
