Re: sound sync issues when playing m4v video through USB app

Actually, that's a good question. They're notes, but the page I pulled the graphic from don't tell what those notes are. I'll see if I can find out. C.

Re: Can I connect a ROKU LT to a WPA2 AES network?

I must have misread/misinterpreted the section of the Roku page I linked to states "To connect your Roku to the Internet, you’ll also need to know the name of your wireless network (SSID), and of course, the passphrase/security key if your home network is protected." Obviously neither of t...

Re: Can I connect a ROKU LT to a WPA2 AES network?

According to Roku, it should work. Of course they just specify WPA2 and don't clarify if it's AES, TKIP or both so maybe someone from Roku or another user will add details clarifying this.

I alsolike Plex for the interface on the tv. The ability to see the cover art and the synopsis of the tv show or movie. Can't get that using the usb port.


The USB channel supports artwork files....maybe not a synopsis but that hardly seems like a game changer.

The only advantage to USB (and the reason I use for most of my local content playback on the Roku) is that all you need is the Roku and a USB drive.

Re: How to get 5.1 audio without HDMI

If I hook up my 360 to this via optical, I'm hoping to get a downmix to DD 5.1 from Netflix. I'm hoping that what Mikey said it true. Should I be confirming this with Netflix, Microsoft or Pioneer? Sounds like everybody is on the same page, the X-Box should output standard DD 5.1 over the optical, ...

Re: Roku android app question

according to RokuPatrick, video is supported only for a few devices. The HTC One is listed but not the HTC One X. I have no idea if this is an issue or not, perhaps someone from Roku will advise when they get in the office in a couple of hours. check this blog post for specifics.... http://blog.roku...

Re: How to get 5.1 audio without HDMI

Can someone acutally confirm that watching movies through a slim model with optical connectivity gets you 5.1 sound? (not 2.1) you probably need to get the details straight from X-box as the X-box Netflix app uses DD+, just like the Roku. So, hopefully either the X-Box can do what is supposedly tec...

Re: 'Target Ticket' sneaky,sneaky, sleezy,sleezy Target Tic

I have seen a few of these sorts of offers come and go and until now, the one thing they all had in common was they allowed you to review the collection of titles you would be allowed to choose from when selecting your free movies PRIOR TO SIGNING UP.

Re: Making Roku 3 work with my sound bar

I can't hear any of the channels I tried....Netflix, Hulu, CBS, Fox I tried the Roku on both Stereo and surround sound setting with no luck. Is there another setting somewhere in Roku that I should be looking at? The LG N3520A is a 2.1 soundbar. You probably need to be looking more at the TV as it ...

Re: Machinima channel broken

Not sure but I suspect it has something to do with the fact that Machinima doesn't host it's own content (to my knowledge). All of their content is through YouTube which may be the problem. Channels like GiantBomb! and Revision3 host their own content in addition to making it available via Youtube. ...

Re: This... this is a joke. Right?!

I have no idea why the Roku 3 was unable to play AC3 sound yesterday but can now. Well, it's possible a firmware or USB app update resolved the issue but you should be able to check and see when the last firmware update was. As far as determining when an app was last updated, that I am not sure abo...

Re: Roku 3 motion judder!!?

well that makes sense for local content (an issue I am quite familiar with) but it doesn't explain why Netflix and others exhibit the judder.
