Re: Feature Requests - Third Quarter 2017

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add direct channel number selection on Roku TVs. A lot of us, believe it or not, still watch normal old TV channels, and having to scroll or pick from a menu is silly, especially if we want to automate with universal remotes, activites, etc. It's hard to believe that Roku TVs su...

Re: Change Name on Network from "Roku Streaming Player

Depending on your router, you may be able to assign a different host name to your device there. I run DD-WRT firmware and I assigned a specific hostname to my Roku through a dhcp-host command. Not sure if that's the kind of name the OP needs for this specific application, but figure it might be of u...

Re: Netflix Blames Roku For Crappy Subtitles - True or False

Must I be criticized for then expressing displeasure over a flaw when I find it? Nope.. it's a legitimate complaint (the captions in the "older" Roku channel are miserable)... I just thought it was a curious way to express it, suggesting that Roku were screwing you over, so I asked... Wel...

Re: Netflix Blames Roku For Crappy Subtitles - True or False

That's a fair point. It was noted in both the Roku and Netflix announcements when the new Netflix channel was released, and has been discussed extensively here, but if it's not mentioned on the website, I can see how it could be overlooked. Of course, the website doesn't provide any specifics about...

Re: Netflix Blames Roku For Crappy Subtitles - True or False

It's common practice on the sales/marketing pages to highlight the positives of a product. It's bad marketing to put negatives. Why do you think the whole "read the fine print" exists? If you only read the sales/marketing page of a product and bought based on that, then honestly, that is ...

Re: Netflix Blames Roku For Crappy Subtitles - True or False

The upcoming streaming stick is rumored to use the same processor as the Roku 1 and Roku 2, and will have the new Netflix channel, so I'd be pretty surprised if the new Netflix channel doesn't make it onto the Roku 1 and Roku 2 when that's released. That would be nice. I hadn't realized the stick w...

Re: Netflix Blames Roku For Crappy Subtitles - True or False

[rant]So if all features are only going to work correctly on a Roku 3, maybe Roku should just sell that one model. I'm getting sick of being treated as a second class citizen because I don't have the most expensive product in the line up. this is second chance I've given Roku and they are screwing m...

Linking with Amazon

I have my Roku linked to my Amazon account.
My wife has a month trial to Prime, and I wanted to link it to her account, try Prime videos for the month, then link it back to me.
Is there any issue with doing this that I should know about?

thx,

To be fair, for those who pay hundreds of dollars for audio-grade knobs on their amplifiers, covering up the vents on the back of your TV probably sounds like a really bad idea.


Hmm. Perhaps it could be pitched as "enhanced airflow management."

Re: Mount Roku Player to the back of the TV?

Double-sided tape or Velcro are much easier and much cheaper. Yeah, but who would pay 20 bucks for some double sided tape or velcro. Maybe, if you put it in a pastic bag and called it something like...................... SuperMount - ROKU UNIVERSAL MOUNTING KIT. :wink: To be fair, the linked produc...

Re: 1080i Discussion thread

but having a component output and not supporting 1080i is an outlier and is unusual I disagree, I have TWO DVD players (from different manufacturers) around here that have component out and they output at only 480p. DVD players are not HD devices. If it was a an UP-SCALING DVD player, it would almo...

Re: More confused now - help with basics!

the OP's question was about recording what's playing on Roku to play back at another date, not just local playback of his own files. Since the former violates terms of use by Roku's content providers, there is no need and won't be happening anytime soon Not allowed is not the same as not needed. Th...

Re: More confused now - help with basics!

3. Unneeded as the content is already available for streaming at any time. Really? Cuz its not available when the the Internet connection is down, it's not available when the provider is having connection problems, and it's not available when it expires. In all those cases, and more, local content ...
