Re: Does FW 7.7 Fix Roku Ultra Audio Issues?

Seems to have cleared up the audio issue on my Ultra. That's a first impression as I haven't really been off work long enough to verify personally, but between a few hours of watching and my wife's input....things are looking up. Remote does still lock up though, this is a much less annoying flaw, s...

Re: Roku Ultra - Audio Popping and Clicking

Roku team, any intention of ever jumping in here and informing us paying customers if you ever intend to actually work on this problem? I'm sorry, but this is the worst customer service I have ever dealt with. You obviously can recreate the problem, it isn't something small or nebulous...it seems li...

Re: Firmware 7.6 udpate

When will Roku respond to all the problems plaguing the Ultra? It is quite clear they are wide spread and all the silence really makes it feel like you don't care. I realize the forum is just a small percentage of users, but imagine all the users who don't bother with coming here to question the iss...

Re: Roku Ultra - Audio Popping and Clicking

Same, I purchased the Ultra exclusively for the DD+ decoding via optical, however all the audio popping is making me quite nervous with my expensive speaker set. I have owned almost every iteration of Roku, but this is just unacceptable. Not to mention all the problems with the remote not pairing pr...

Re: TCL Roku TV wifi issues

This just happened on my TCL. It happened in the middle of watching a show, and it is not rebooting nicely. I guess it is time to order that ethernet adapter, I should have been preemptive. I held out hopes it was isolated incident. EDIT: Well, it turned out a reboot took care of it. Still purchasin...

Re: Good or bad?: TCL Roku Smart LED TVs?

It's a good buy. The picture is pretty good overall, exceptional for the price. The build quality is well above average for price range. The experience is great, integration is very tight with roku/tv. In short, it's a good buy. I'm a bit happier with the $600 plasma as far as picture quality, range...

Re: Roku TV Questions

If someone can tell me of a better UI for a TV than the Roku UI please let me know . Nope, nothing even close. The new update took a step toward fixing some of the limitations as well. I don't regret my purchase of my RokuTV one bit. It's a bedroom unit, because I need more intricate tweaking in my...

Re: Roku TV Questions

That's an interesting way to look at it, but I have never had a Roku crap out on me. Furthermore, all tvs have firmware that can go bad, no matter how simplistic they are. In some ways having the ability to update and improve that firmware is a bonus. DVD integration and things like that were always...

Re: Roku TV Questions

I don't understand this reasoning. You describe two choices: 1. Buy a RokuTV. Eventually, a few years from now when you want a better streamer, buy a standalone Roku and connect it to the TV. 2. Buy a non-Roku TV and a standalone Roku player. A few years from now, buy a new standalone Roku and repl...

Re: Dish announces Sling TV - will be available on Roku.

Vudu is nowhere near bluray quality. Not even same ballpark. Even Blurays are compressed a great deal, the further you compress the image the worse it will be, no matter the codec. Obviously the distributors who are encoding Blurays have access to top end equipment and the best codecs, otherwise the...

Re: TCL Roku TV wifi issues

I'm not impressed with Roku's feedback about questions and issues on the boards here though. Are you guys gonna support this thing or what? Hardware support, which this particular issue appears to be, is handled by the respective television manufacturers. I like the experience a lot, want to know t...

Maybe still keeping this tv for the bedroom. I'm not impressed with Roku's feedback about questions and issues on the boards here though. Are you guys gonna support this thing or what? I like the piece of kit, a lot. I was ready to return it for the superior television (already ordered) and it just ...

Re: TCL Roku TV wifi issues

Dang, I might need to make that jump. I hate getting tvs shipped, but that is a far better deal than I can get locally. I really wanted plasma as well. That complicates the issue a bit. No tax means it is only a $65 difference too. Don't forget my finder's fee :D Definitely owe you a beer. I couldn...
