Re: Roku is adding channels automatically?

One guess - because it has happened to me - if the Roku 'city' screensaver that has channel advertising is selected, hitting the okay button to bring up the screen will install that channel.

Re: Netflix new annoying auto preview when browsing will make me cancel for good.

Yeah, pretty annoying, it should have a toggle. I just hit mute, I really don't care if the visuals are there. It may prompt me to the Endless solution...

Starz app not remembering pause spot?

The 'new' Starz app does not seem to keep the place I stopped when I return to the movie. It isn't even putting them in the 'resume' folder. Anyone else seeing this? I understand this is likely their problem not Roku, just want to see if it's just me.

consolidating account, will I have to redo all channels?

I have acquired a unit from my father, if i deactivate the account via the web and reactivate it on one of my accounts, will I have to redo all the channels? If not, will I have to redo all the activations on the channels?

Roku series 1 - Just getting old?

Hi. I've got a long history with Roku, I still have a couple of Soundbridges in use. But my Roku 1's, while they fine, inevitable have buffering/ stalling issues especially with Netflix. Switching over to another source, like a computer, web enabled dvd, or my new Chromecast, I don't get the same pr...

Get a universal or proggramable remote.
Or if you have a smartphone, there are apps to control the soundbridge.

Re: Is it possible to split the Roku signal between two devi

How do I log out of Netlix or Amazon account on Rolu

If I want to change to the Netflix or Amazon account that is active o the Roku, how do I do that? I tried removing and adding back the channel but that doesn't do it.
