Re: Cannot set picture move to "HDR Dark"

Are you playing HDR content when you try to change the video mode? You can't change to an HDR video mode unless HDR is playing.

Re: Roku vs Chromecast

 I am under the impression Chromecast allows you to watch anything you can watch on your desktop computer.  That is really not the main purpose of a Chromecast. Most use a Chromecast to "cast" video from specific apps on a mobile device or computer to the Chromecast. But in this case, it ...

Re: Logitech Harmony Elite won't send commands to select channels

All channels are available when using a Harmony hub as it is IP based not IR based.  However, the selection of Roku apps that can be sent are quite limited. MyHarmony lists only the most common choices. Hence, I was trying to use directional arrows. Are you not using a hub based Harmony? It literal...

Re: Logitech Harmony Elite won't send commands to select channels

It's been awhile since I've done any Harmony programming, but isn't there a limited selection of Roku channels that Harmony can call? Perhaps this is one is not supported?

Re: YouTube TV & Closed Captions

It works fine for me. Are you selecting the more menu item and then going to CC and then enabling the correct one?

Re: Spectrum App Won't allow me to login

Sorry to hear about the trouble getting logged in!  Each channel on the Roku platform is developed and published by the channel service provider themselves, including the authentication/login process for users. They would be the experts in helping provide further assistance for their channel, inclu...

Re: How do I disable ads on my homescreen?

Hello, lately I’ve been experiencing slow internet speeds, and I’d like to free up all the space I can. My roku tv loads advertisements every time I turn it on to watch netflix or plays games. I’d like to disable these advertisements so that my games and netflix can run more smoothly on an already ...

Re: Casting 4k Videos from Chrome to Roku installed on TV?

The casting you're talking about is the opening of an app on the remote device (Roku TV in your case) from the casting device (your PC). Screen mirroring is how you get what you want, and you've discovered the lag that comes with that. When I want to cast a browser tab to my computer, I use a Chrom...

Re: Audio sync issue when watching Amazon Prime

I have had a Roku ultra for 1 year and this last week the audio in prime and Netflix has started to get out of sync, only a system restart corrects it. Ps. Found some other posts suggesting the soundbar might be responsible It is due to the latest update 9.0 4083. I'm having to reboot 3 Rokus daily...

Re: New Plex Media Player App for Roku: YUCK!

They removed plugins to please Roku.  Well, their official response is "Nobody used them" but I'm pretty sure it was Roku saying "You guys are pretty shady, but if you get rid of 'Channels' we'll keep you on the platform and the box".  100% my interpretation of what happened. Lo...

Sorry, just rechecked everything after your advise.
It' is a 3810x.
No wonder I couldn't find anything.
Must be a defective replacement remote.
Sorry for the confusion, thanks for the help.

Does the pairing light not blink on the remote when you push the pairing button for 3 seconds?

Re: Back Friday Roku Ultra deal: is it worth upgrading?

I've had my Roku 3 for years and its been rock solid. About 5 months ago I upgraded my plasma TV to an LG OLED which is spectacular to say the least. I see that the Ultra will be selling at HALF PRICE for $49.95 on Black Friday  which is far less than even used ones go for on Ebay. From what I've s...
