Re: No subtitles since b1006 upgrade

By the way, I want to also publicly thank Shawn for the attention he has shown throughout the Subtitles issues that have arisen. Those of us who need them really appreciate the efforts. And to all the others on the board, Happy and Safe Holidays, and enjoy your Rokus.

Re: No subtitles since b1006 upgrade

My daughter & I were watching The Swan Princess tonight...The movie had subtitles, but they did not correspond with the audio, which made having the subtitles useless. I have never seen this be the case. I've watched a few that are out-of-sync a little bit, and it can be annoying, but this one ...

Re: I want to buy Netflix Browser but cant even find it at s

It should be roku.permanence.com/link, not roku/permanence.com

Good luck. It's a great channel.

Re: Roku Deaf User group

If you order the excellent Roku application, Instant Watch Browser for Netflix, from TheEndless, one of the genres is for movies and tv shows on Netflix that do have closed captions available. Also, online at Phlixie.com, there is a listing of Netflix programs with captions, and Instantwatcher.com c...

Re: AHHGHHH Angry Birds!

I just checked my Angry Birds to see if I had been affected, and apparently it has not. I have been playing it quite a bit the last few days. After I got the 2xs, I became addicted, never having played AB on any other platform. I worked really hard to get to three stars on every screen at every leve...

Re: No subtitles since b1006 upgrade

I noticed the problem for the first time last night, but I can't honestly say if it happened after the upgrade; it might have been after the reported Netflix problems last night. I can't remember if I've watched Netflix on this particular Roku in the last three or four days before that. But, in my c...

Roku 2XS-- Subtitles option in Netflix Disappeared

Maybe the secret is to remove and re-add the Netflix channel five times. Or maybe it's just that this glitch happened to solve itself at that moment. At any rate, the subtitles are now back and working!!! Everything was working fine with the 2XS and all my subtitles. But, today, after having proble...

Re: Netflix HD

Shawn,

I don't know if this is connected to the HD problem, but I've suddenly lost all my subtitle options on Netflix. I've been on with Roku support for about an hour and have done all kinds of resets, but I still don't see any subtitle options yet.

Re: Can you use HDMI for video and RCA for audio?

I have the HDMI hooked up to my television from the Roku 2XS, but I also have the RCA audios hooked up to my wireless headphones (with the video left unconnected). Most of the time, I listen through the headphones, but the audio still works through the HDMI too. I have not noticed a problem with the...

Re: Angry Birds Lost Scores

Kitn, Just in case your husband hasn't found it yet, the next set of Angry Birds is now available from Roku; it's called Angry Birds Seasons, I think. I've only played a few levels so far. I think the price is $4.99, but I told my wife it was $49.99 so that when I tell her the real price, it will so...

Re: Netflix Subtitles No Longer Work on Roku 2

Here are a few TV series that I have spot-checked for subtitles. In most cases, I just did a random check of episodes, usually trying at least one episode in each season, so the actual results might be very different if you watch an entire set. All episodes worked that I spot checked: The Virginian,...

Omagh, 9 to 5, See No Evil-Hear No Evil, Joseph: King of Dreams, A Man for All Seasons, Insomnia , and The Gangs of New York . In addition, the parts of Letters from Iwo Jima that are in English w...

Re: Angry Birds Lost Scores

I'm glad you menrtioned this. I've never used the reset button. Any issues I have had in the past have always been solved with a soft reset (unplugging the roku for a few seconds). I would hate to think that I lost all my Angry Birds score. Like your husband, I'd never seen the game and quickly beca...

Here's a short addition to the list of Netflix movie titles which have subtitles that have worked on my Roku 2XS. I hope these lists help some of you: War and Peace, Wallace and Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death, 12 O'clock High, To Sir With Love, Under the Greenwood Teree, The War of the Roses, Th...
