Re: unauthorized user keeps scrambling screen....

I'm guessing it actually says "HDCP Unauthorized Content Disabled" or some such. RokuTanner has good recommendations to fix that.

Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

From my understanding Dolby Vision may support HDR but it is NOT HDR. Also just because some minor players have it does not mean it should be supported by all devices. It is both unnecessary and redundant. If Roku chooses to support it that is OK but if they do not that is OK too. Dolby Vision is a...

Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

Still no players with Dolby Vision. Disappointing. People keep saying this is important but I do not personally know of even one person that uses it or knows what it actually is or desires it. Those that want it seem quite assertive that it has value for them but I have never really seen any good r...

New Roku Players Announced - No Dolby Vision On New Ultra

Roku announced their new slate of set top players and the roll out of OS 9.2. Unfortunately for many, no Dolby Vision HDR, even on the new Ultra:

Re: Netflix no 5.1 sound on NOW TV Smart Stick powered by Roku

I know some of the older Amazon sticks would decode DD+ to regular DD and output it for people with older systems that couldn't decode DD+. I don't know about the newer ones. What is it that tells you you're getting 5.1 audio -- is it shown on the LG unit, or are you going by what Amazon is set for ...

Re: Netflix no 5.1 sound on NOW TV Smart Stick powered by Roku

I looked at your LG Cinema manual - (I could be wrong here) it looks like one of those systems where the built-in BD player, itself, has an audio surround decoder, but the HDMI In/Out is merely a pass through, meaning there's no decoding in the unit. Roku units don't decode surround - they merely pa...

Re: Netflix app not giving me 4K playback

Great. Question: Does your soundbar have a separate HDMI input as well as an HDMI ARC in/out? If so, you might try just hooking the Roku up into that input, and then the soundbar back to the ARC - out / ARC HDMI in on the Vizio.  Otherwise, if optical works, that's good, too.

Re: Netflix app not giving me 4K playback

Here's what I would try: On the Roku: Go to Settings Go to Advanced Display Settings See what your HDCP is set for in this Roku setting.  Is it currently set for 4:2:2? If so, try setting it for 4:2:0.  Try Netflix again. Is it set for 4:2:0 already? Try setting it for 4:2:2 and try Netflix. re: You...

Re: Smart Soundbar - can you still stream with the TV off?

My TVs - LG's - let me turn off the TV display while the TV still remains on. Have you checked your display settings in the TV menu?

Re: No Dolby Digital Plus

This AV forum thread indicates that other non-Roku TV brands have exactly the same DD+ issue with my Yamaha receivers. This certainly points towards the receiver as the culprit. Question: Have you enabled ARC on the TCL?  There is a setting that you need to set for it to work properly.  Just want t...

Re: Roku 3 No Surround Sound After 9.1

Sorry - I realized after the fact that the Roku 3 does not support the "volume mode" options, so that's not in play. First, I would try power-cycling the AVR.  Next, I would try a different HDMI input on the AVR as a test to see if it's a case of the Roku/AVR handshake (where they exchange...

Re: Roku 3 No Surround Sound After 9.1

Based on what you've said, it doesn't sound like this would be the case, but start a show in Netflix or Amazon. Then press the star/asterisk key. Make sure "Volume Mode" says "Off". If it's on Leveling or Night you'll only get stereo. Use the arrow keys to go left or right until ...

Re: TCL Roku TV's / DD+ issue with Samsung HW-N950

I understand - but just to be clear (for me, at least): when you explicitly set the Roku to output DD vs DD+, you can get DD over ARC on channels that are normally DD+ (like Netflix)?  If so, that's why I was wondering if for some reason it's transcoding by default . In other posts in this thread, p...
