Re: Can I plug speakers into the AV jack of a Roku Express +?

I had no trouble using a small sound bar type speaker directly plugged into the Roku Express+ AV jack. So I'd guess your powered Klipsch setup would work just fine as well.  I did have trouble with the video as I was trying to use a DVI PC monitor and ended up returning the Roku, but the audio was n...

Re: [Official] Roku Deals 2017

32" TCL Roku TV at Walmart for $125: https://www.walmart.com/ip/TCL-32S3750-32-720p-60Hz-Roku-Smart-LED-HDTV/46270960
I picked one up yesterday and it said $158 on the shelf but they matched the online price shown on my phone.

Re: Roku TV a bad choice?

I have never purchased a Smart TV as I heard negative things about the experiences with some TV's with smart devices built in like how information can be compromised, etc., but I wouldn't classify that as a Roku issue because some of the stuff I heard were in regard to Samsung Smart TV's and obviou...

Re: Roku TV a bad choice?

I have always said that Roku should make a remote with universal functions to control the TV's power and volume. Sideclick is close:  https://www.sideclickremotes.com/  and RCA has a pretty compact universal that works ok:  [size=100] http://a.co/86k8JXX [/size] But yes. If Roku could take the Roku...

Re: Roku TV a bad choice?

I have a Roku TV as our main TV. The simplicity of one remote and the usability of the UI as the main TV interface is very, very nice. The updates seem to still be flowing to the TVs, just got 7.5 a few weeks ago, but it's safe to assume that someday that might stop. At that point, it is still possi...

Re: Roku with Cable Box and Older TV

Thank you, I'll be going to visit her this weekend so I'll try to get a look at the setup and will take a look at those links.  I'm also going to measure the entertainment center opening and see what will fit in case we decide to go the new tv route.  She has a 25" tv sitting there now which p...

Re: Roku with Cable Box and Older TV

I'm considering purchasing a roku device for my mom.  She has a TWC cable box already connected to her TV using the a/v connections.  So how would I connect another device such as a roku using a/v connections.  As I stated previously she has an older tv without HDMI.  Is there some kind of adapter/...

Re: New Roku lineup question

The Express+ does support private listening: https://support.roku.com/article/217478308-private-listening-on-the-roku-mobile-app-
It does not support screen mirroring nor does it have the quad core processor, but I don't know if it's the same cpu as the Roku1.

Re: Private Listening Roku 3

I'm seeing the same behavior with my 2015 Roku2. Alvin for 5 seconds, then nothing. Turning private listening off and back on repeats the same symptom. Rebooted the phone and the Roku, and tried it on 2 different phones with the same result. Also tried a couple of different channels. I also have a R...

Still following,how ever out of any thing to offer ... one question though what resolutions are available on your display type ?

Re: Express+ PC monitor/speaker experience

In case anyone is still following along. I gave Roku support a crack at this. Took a while as it got escalated to higher level engineering support and I just got the "Sorry, this isn't supported" note. So, whatever code or hardware feature that lets this work on the Roku2 got dropped in th...

Re: roku support on weekends

I was able to have a live chat with support earlier today using that same link: https://support.roku.com/contactus and was able to get to the point of it offering options again just now. You do have to go through and select your problem and go through a couple of screens before you get the actual co...

Re: Express+ PC monitor/speaker experience

when you restarted the roku was the composite plugged in ? I am wondering if you unplug the composite cable using only the HDMI out on the roku and reboot if it makes a difference also if your monitor has an overscan setting make sure that this is off before the reboot  In my last set of tests, I d...
