Re: ultra exits netflix title to roku home page repeatedly

So I've also been having this issue you speak of.  I've been waiting for a thread to pop up, and yours looks like the closest one. In my case, I'm on a Hitachi Roku TV.  However, same symptoms.  Only thing I can pin it down to is, "it was working fine before the last couple of Roku 8.x software...

Re: Password insanity...

When is Roku going to address the nonsense of passwords and activations on the device?  I have 5 Rokus, and if I randomly sit down at any one of them right now and randomly choose a channel, it will almost certainly force me to reactivate that channel.  That's terrible design and a horrible user ex...

Re: HBO GO channel, lag and crashes - possible to reinstall old version?

I've noticed (from my Roku's situation anyway) that if you launch the HBOGO channel, and then let it sit for about 5-10 minutes, the issues don't seem to be present. Still, I've also logged a detailed request for this issue to be looked into.  I encourage others to do the same.   It's annoying. http...

Woo! It's about time! Having a WDTV around just to use the SXM subscription was getting old. Glad to finally have an official channel!

Re: WWE Network problems

Aside from their adaptive bitrate streams still not being synchronized properly (something that's been that way since day one during the "soft launch" portion up to now) there was also an audio issue that a few people caught and complained about on Twitter with #audioissues. Around the sam...

Re: WeatherNationTV channel

I just tried it, and yeah, they have audio issues. Coming out of the radar forecast segment into a guy giving a forecast rundown, you hear the audio of his voice for about a second at the same level as the music that just left, then he fades down to about half the volume. Soon as the announcer and m...

Re: livestream.com to Roku

From their press release.. "Event producers can now broadcast their events to millions of Roku viewers by streaming with Livestream's hardware, free software or mobile app, without any further integration or app development." It sounds like you asked them for the source code they developed...

I just got around to watching my first Redbox Instant title last night on my Roku 2, and yeah, I can see what the previous poster shellofsnail is talking about. National Lampoon's European Vacation started out okay in the opening credits, but as soon as the actual "movie" takes over, you c...

Re: BBC World Service channel not working

My own research has led me to believe the stream link has recently changed. The provider's website (if it's who I think it is) recently stopped offering access to view it from a few countries within the past few weeks, with the US included. With some digging it could be determined and restored, but ...

Re: Live Streaming

This is probably a question better suited for the Developer area (http://forums.roku.com/viewforum.php?f=34) but I believe if you're using the Old/Original Livestream.com setup, this is possible. Read their Mobile API page for details on getting the M3U8 link: http://www.livestream.com/userguide/?ti...

Re: Slingplayer coming to Roku?

It's kind of sad that it's taken this long to get Slingplayer support on the Roku, and we still don't have it. I mean even XBMC running on modded classic Xbox consoles can digest Slingbox streams now... WDTV getting it after Boxee is just another punch in the eye. Considering Roku and Echostar's Dis...

Re: Google Music?

I've looked into doing this recently. By sniffing around while I'm navigating my account, I'm quick to notice most of the stuff going on is HTTPS (SSL), so a sniffer doesn't log most of what is going on in plain text you'd understand.... But! I am able to see the playback URL for the actual song you...

Re: roku starting,please wait

Using wireless or Ethernet? If currently on Wireless, you may want to try the Ethernet connection temporarily to see if it's having trouble handshaking with the Roku servers. If you've done a full reset and still get nothing, it really sounds like a data connectivity issue. I'd try ruling that out f...

Re: Roku Player Stuck at Title Screen

Instead of pushing reset, try holding it down for 10 seconds. If you're just pushing it and letting go, I think that's the equiv. to just unplugging the power and plugging it back in. Not much of a help. I only say this because I've had the same issue, and had to do a hold-in-for-10 reset. I have/ha...
