Re: Is Netflix ever going to offer way to disable Post-Play?

Non-problem is non-problem. I personally view Netflix for the content but If you want to see the credits you can with one click, if you want to nit pick you can do that to.

Re: Disappointed in Roku USB file compatibility

Research is king

If your primary interest isn't streaming the Roku is not your box.

Re: CBS may go online, cut off its broadcast signal if Aereo

It is a hollow threat. CBS has contacts with local stations, sports leagues, advertisers, and others on the national and local levels, CBS would have a legal nightmare on its hands if it tried this stunt and that is assuming the FCC and Congress doesn't get involved which they certainly would.

Re: Who will buy Hulu? At least one contender drops out

My fear is that if DirecTV buys Hulu they'll lock it down and only DirecTV subscribers will have access to it. :twisted: Doubtful. You don't grow a business by pissing off your existing customer base and then limiting the pool of new subscribers. That's where the value of the company is: Hulu says ...

Re: Getting rid of my Roku 3....

This is technical nonsense that has no relevance to the average viewer. Petulant nonsense on top of it with "untrained eye" thrown in for laughs. The Roku 3 is a $100 device that does exactly what is promised and does it well and without being locked into a mommy know what is best for you...

Re: PBS and PBS Kids are finally live!

Our Federal tax dollars are already subsidizing PBS. PBS gets just 15 percent of its budget from the government, and NPR just 2 percent. Donations are important if you like the content. That 'just 15%" number is pure BS (a lie) used for when PBS is asking for donations. If you include direct F...

Re: Vudu break-in

If a company can't even provide basic physical security for sensitive hard drives, how can we trust them to handle complex internet security issues? All you need to get in to most businesses or homes is time and the right tools. Security systems can be by-passed especially by clever insiders. In ma...

Re: Are universal remotes out of luck with the ROKU3?

Roku 3 uses IR as well as RF.

The IR codes for the Roku 3 are the same codes as earlier Rokus. My Harmony One works fine with my Roku 3 using the same IR codes used on my Roku 1 I did not have to reprogram the Harmony One.

Re: Roku 3 HDCP on HDMI

I can understand Roku infecting the HDMI port with DRM when streaming content from apps that play copyrighted material. But if I'm playing media from my USB drive, the HDMI port should send this without HDCP. It's my media and I want to play it out to devices that aren't infected with DRM. Seems li...

Re: Why Is The ROKU Stick MHL?

It had to be MHL because at the moment that is the only way to stream HD content without needing to plug the device in to external power. The MHL connection provides power to the device. Having to plug the little flash drive sized stick into an outlet would defeat the purpose. Now, as far as the sm...
