Re: FRAUD?

The response that came back proves it was a mistake. The exchange was setup wrong. Sometimes they wait for the faulty unit or whatever to come back and then ship a new one out. There are different ways to do RMA replacements and it looks like whoever the original CS rep was just processed it wrong. ...

Re: FRAUD?

The customer service is horrible. I don't think this guy even fully understood English so I don't think there was any intentional lying. The service is bad. We've all heard the stories. When you outsource to a cheap Indian CS company you get horrible, awful customer service. This is just more of the...

Re: FRAUD?

I agree with Jeff. It was poor customer service, not fraud.

Re: Roku seems slow lately.

One thing that will improve the responsiveness of your roku is fresh batteries in the remote. Might want to wipe off the remote so the front lens is clear from finger grease. Also the infrared port on the front of the roku. Also, get an air can and blow the dust out of your roku. Keep it right side...

Re: Roku is a lot of hassle just to have a remote.

I don't get why anyone would want to stretch the picture either but on a 32 inch TV like the OP says he has, I can see how the black bars would be annoying. I still wouldn't stretch the picture but I get it. There is another thread about the WiFi disconnecting when you set the box to 720p here http:...

Re: How many Roku players?

Netflix has a limit, but I know that they don't enforce it. If they do, they don't monitor it very closely.

Re: Reorder Pandora Stations

I don't think you can reorder the stations on the Roku channel. You would have to reach out to Pandora to request that functionality.

Re: Insufficient Storage - ROKU

Apple has the exact same problem in reality. You can't install every app from the App Store on your iPhone, there isn't enough memory to do that. So Apple is in the exact same situation as Roku. They advertise all those apps in their commercials and in the App Store, but there is no way I can put t...

Re: Insufficient Storage - ROKU

Exactly. You've just recapped/nailed the obvious and why it was, and will continue to be, a tremendously short-sighted "fail" from the very beginning. How come they've managed to sell more than a million of them so far then? Not bad when you could only buy them direct from Roku or through...

Re: Insufficient Storage - ROKU

Yup, all of s sudden I got this same nonsense. It wiped away my Crackle channel and I had to delete a bunch of channels to add Crackle again. And Crackle isn't working very well for me, lately. Maybe I'm nuts, but shouldn't I be able to add all the channels I want? One at a time, that is, after I r...

Re: netflix and 6 tv's?

That's the assumption I was always under, but I have a streaming only plan and the two Roku's in my house stream Netflix simultaneously all the time. Perhaps they don't have a way (or care to) regulate that anymore.. They never have regulated it. I have had the one at a time plan for a few years an...

Re: More Commercials on Roku Channels?

Netflix wouldn't do this. Something like this may open the door to even more content on streaming devices. If distributors can make enough money from ads then they could make the content available for free. If I could get the same thing I get from cable for free including the same amount of ads, I w...

Re: When does mlb.tv start?

Sounds like you are SOL on Roku for pre-season. Just hook a laptop up to your TV or something.

Re: 6 Nations on UStream

You would be better served contacting UStream to find out if they will make the coverage available for Roku or not. Just because there is a UStream channel for Roku does not mean all the content will be available via the Roku.
