Re: Dolby 5.1 vs Dolby ProLogic II

The only Roku player that can take the DD+ and output standard DD is the 4640 Ultra, as it's the only one that had an Dolby Digital encoder . Your options are to find one of the older Ultra models or replace your AVR for something that supports DD+.  Not sure if you were responding to his earlier d...

Re: Dolby 5.1 vs Dolby ProLogic II

The Apple TV 4th generation (latest) actually has built-in surround decoders, and can be set to output standard Dolby. Actually, it does a great job in Auto mode, finding out what your receiver can handle. So it's another expense, yes, but if you can find one used it would be a good deal. Here's how...

Re: TCL Roku TV "USB device requires more power" after 9.1.0 update, nothing plugged in

OK, well, there is a main board for this set pretty cheap (open box "new" from a TV with a cracked screen) for $42.46 on Ebay. You can see the ports seem to match up when you hover over the image on Ebay to enlarge it. After the coax connector moving to the right is an optical port, then a...

Re: TCL Roku TV "USB device requires more power" after 9.1.0 update, nothing plugged in

I found the "Official" thread at avsforum.com for your model. One guy had the same issue two full years ago (August 2017) but no one responded to his issue. He said he was bringing it back to Best Buy to swap it out.  Link:  USB Power Issue Here's a thought - Even though you're seeing that...

Re: TCL Roku TV "USB device requires more power" after 9.1.0 update, nothing plugged in

Why not actually try connecting a USB thumb drive to the TV to see if doing that might somehow trigger a USB reset?  Do it for each USB port if it has more than one.  If nothing changes when you first plug them in, power the TV off and back on with USB plugged in. Still nothing? Disconnect TV from A...

Re: Netflix only streaming in stereo

You're going about the connections wrong. According to an online manual I've seen for your soundbar, it has both an HDMI IN and an HDMI-ARC OUT. You need to connect the Roku Premiere+ directly to the soundbar's HDMI-IN port. Leave the soundbar's HDMI-ARC OUT port connected like it is now, directly t...

Re: Netflix only streaming in stereo

If it's stereo on some shows (and not others), that's a Netflix thing. I've never heard complaints of intermittent 5.1 surround.

Re: Loading dot freezing?

How are you powering it? If via USB, use a wall outlet. And if using a wall outlet (powerstrip or outlet), try using a different wall outlet - even if you need an extension cord.  If using a powerstrip, try going directly into the wall outlet, bypassing the powerstrip.  Trying to rule everything out...

Re: Loading dot freezing?

Does this unit have a microSD card installed? If so, remove it and then reboot.

Re: What happened to the aquarium?

I chimed in on a similar post last month for someone who lost the Aquarium screensaver due to not having a 4K Roku device.  This Roku screensaver appears to be the classic "Sachs Marine  Aquarium " screensaver that Roku probably licensed, and was also licensed by Microsoft at one time. You...

Re: HELP - wrong channels on stick

I'd call customer service and let them sort it out. Something in your account is toggled for US, apparently.

Re: No Dolby Digital Plus

Aside from trying to get the black ink / Kodak fix to work (above scammer post, lol), I'd be replacing the HDMI cable first, and then look up in your receiver manual on how to do a factory reset of the receiver, itself.
