Re: Roku 1 bandwidth rate limitation?

Roku shouldn't have confused the situation by naming a newer/worse product like "Roku 1" when there was already a full line of Roku "1" devices available for sale I agree with that. Why on earth would they name one of their third generation products the "Roku 1"??? See...

You would burn through that 10Gb/month usage amount in no time at all; even watching SD.

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

Shawn, while you're asking about those missing notes (little numbers), maybe you could ask about the missing notes on another page. I was looking at 'Product Comparison - All Roku Player Models'. It has notes for 1,2, & 3 but not for 4, 5 & 6.

Re: Will Roku ever actually play mp4 files properly?

I too have NEVER had a problem with any mp4 movies/shows. I use Handbrake for conversion.
Some people have reported problems with various framerates (FPS). I always set mine to 29.97
and have never had a problem.

Re: Cannot remove Lost Worlds Films Lite from my account

Yep, same problem for me (Roku 1). Shawn, please let us know when a fix becomes available, though it's not hurting anything.

Re: BUG - Roku 1 white lines/display issue?

I just checked my Roku 1 XR. Normally I use the HDMI. But I checked with composite and also component cables. I don't see any problems.

At 10-16 minutes per movie this is taking quite a while. Only 50 ripped so far with at least 100 to go.

You can set Handbrake to rip movies in 'batch' mode. Queue up 20 movies to rip, then go to bed. When you get up the next morning they'll all be waiting for you.

Firefox holds but a TINY percentage of Windows users, so I cannot understand WHY Internet Explorer 10 (it and Explorers 8 and 9) that are used by a gazillion times more users that Firefox, is not supported.

Re: New to Roku

Aloha, I just picked up a used Roku XR from a garage sale for a whopping $5, sans remote or power supply. I see I can buy a replacement PSU direct from Roku, but it specifically lists the following models: Replacement power supply for Roku HD 2500, Roku LT, Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD and Roku 2 XS Does a...

Hulu is not available on any STB (set top box). That is a Hulu decision, not Roku.

Make sure the broadband has enough bandwidth to stream 2 boxes at the same time.

Roku Power Supply is back in-stock

After months and months and months, Roku has the 'official' power supply back in-stock ($9.99) on their Accessories page. For those of you with the old N1000, it might be a good time to pick up a spare.

But also note, it only lists the current generation of boxes. Will it actually work with Roku 1's?

Re: Can I use an HDMI to DVI for video and composite for aud

Since HDMI->DVI might or might not work with the OP's TV, I think it would behoove the OP to go ahead and get a Roku2. But buy it from Roku directly or from Amazon. Sellers that have a money back guarantee, unlike Ebay. Try it, if it works - no problem, if it doesn't - send it back.
