Won't Let Me Change Email Address: "Spam Email Domain"

I came here to change my email address to match that on my Roku account (as you requested).  When I tried, I got: "Spam Email Domain" My email domain is protonmail.com (which you allowed just fine on my Roku account).  I'm not changing it there, so it would probably be nice if you'd accept...

7-day Trial, Transaction Not Accepted, Am I OK?

Three days ago, I tried subscribing to a 7-day free trial of a channel on my  Roku . I don't know why (and it's not really relevant to this question), but according to the signup page, my credit card  company refused the charge (of $0.00). Trying to go through the process again  was too much trouble...

My Router is Blocking Roku's Calls to 8.8.8.8 (Google DNS)

I just noticed that my router's firewall is blocking Roku's calls to Google's DNS (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4).  I see from some posts here that for some reason Roku has hardcoded that DNS service instead of using what's set up on our routers.  What's the result of this?  Will my Roku stop working after a ...

Re: Tivo Roamio

I'm not sure why you're asking about TiVo stuff on a Roku forum. You'd be far better off asking here:

Re: $60 Roku Connection Fee?

This is an amazing thread. I wish I could +1 or something to the OP. Thanks for posting about this.

I wonder if your father in law did a search on Google and one of those Google AD things migrated to the top and he just clicked on it. It would be interesting to look at his browser history.

Re: When do new movies get added to Showtime App?

I emailed Showtime support and asked them about how we were supposed to see new movies when they were added (does a "new" category appear or is there an ability to sort by date added). The response was: "Thank you for using our app and contacting us with this suggestion. Your idea has...

Re: When do new movies get added to Showtime App?

That's just about what I'd found out (i.e. "regularly"). I wonder if that Showtime app has a "just added" feature that pops up so we can see what's new (I don't see anything like that).

When do new movies get added to Showtime App?

Probably the wrong place to ask, but I'm trying out the Showtime app (not Showtime Anytime) on my Roku and am wondering when Showtime adds new movies to what's available in it. Anyone have any idea?

Re: How Cable Bundling Helped Create Shows Like Mad Men

That's nice that someone, somewhere thinks the show is nice. But, I don't watch it, don't want to watch it, would never want to watch anything like it, and don't want to be an unwilling, hidden sponsor of its (or anything like its) development or maintenance. And, even for shows I like (which are, f...

Re: Yet another WiFi Direct is jamming my home network threa

Not much I can add to Alamei's post. The only differences I can come up with are that my Roku doesn't seem to change its wireless channel to chase my network's unless it (the Roku) gets rebooted. Also, I can cause Roku to chase the channel merely by going to its network settings page and having it s...

Re: Yet another WiFi Direct is jamming my home network threa

To the OP (RogueWiFiDirect): I'd like to thank you for your post and for the work you did figuring this out. My wired-only Roku 3 rebooted yesterday and jumped its WiFi Direct signal right on top of my wireless router's channel. I'm in the process of going through your work-arounds. So, once again, ...

Roku 3 Spontaneous Reboot

My Roku 3 just rebooted itself. I had just finished watching an episode of a show on Amazon Prime, fast forwarded to the end, put it on Play and watched the lion roar, the screen went blank, and that's all. I checked the other TV inputs and they were fine. When I got back to the Roku's input, I caug...

Re: Pair Roku 3 with Sennheiser RS 180?

Connecting the Sennheiser base to the TV didn't work out well at all. First, the sound levels drop way down when run through the TV's RCA output jacks. Second, there's a lot of added noise. I don't know if the TV is trying to do something with the audio signal or if it's just a straight pass-through...

Re: Pair Roku 3 with Sennheiser RS 180?

The only way I've found to use the Sennheisers is as you mentioned: plug the transmitter into the Roku remote. But, doing it that way seems to add a hiss to the quiet spots in the soundtrack. That extra Wifi link seems to attenuate the signal, too (i.e., I've got to turn the volume up on the headpho...
