Re: The Magic Loading Dots...

Okay, thanks for all of your input. I will take all that you have said at face value, as you know more than I. Good education here. Perhaps I should stop by more often! Anyway, the new Roku is buzzing along, and even though I don't see the dots on Netflix, I believe what is said here and am content....

Re: The Magic Loading Dots...

You can also adjust the quality on the Netflix website under your acount I did that months ago, but checked it again today to see if that had magically changed. It is still set to the highest setting. As for the dots being meaningless here, I could go for that if the Roku 2 didn't show them at all,...

The Magic Loading Dots...

I decided to buy a Roku 2 XD. I have the previous Roku XD model that I use, with no problems. I'm moving that one to my regular TV. I hooked up the new Roku today and all works fine EXCEPT I see no dots when Netflix loads up a program. On the other Roku I'll see all the dots with HD at the end. This...

Ah, well, thank you. I see why I don't know about this; I don't have an HD-DVR. I'm still using a primitive cathode ray picture tube TV.

Re: The future of streaming players

And DirecTV has their DirecTV Cinema which lets you download over 6000 titles for no additional charge. It may not be streaming in the sense we're used to with the Roku or similar STB's, but I believe you can start watching before the download is complete, so it's somewhat similar. I can definitely...

Re: Okay, This Has Gotten Ridiculous

I purchased the box from the Roku website. When they told me today that I had to pay shipping to return before they ship me a replacement, I countered with what Amazon would do. Made no difference. They got me. Plus the fact that I will be without the box for 2 weeks, perhaps? If they wanted the ret...

Re: Okay, This Has Gotten Ridiculous

The two dot quality issue sounds a lot like insufficient bandwidth. What type of internet do you have? Have you tried a speedtest? In some cases opendns can make the streaming speed worse because it has more jumps to reach your machine than the local dns provided by your isp. Are you or others in y...

Okay, This Has Gotten Ridiculous

Along with the never ending problem of the Channel store not working, and the new problem of 2 dot video quality, both which I tried to correct by using OpenDns numbers, with no success, and the out of the blue, out of memory, so I have to remove channels problem, I now have a new problem that seems...

Re: NO CHANNEL STORE!!!! HELP!!!!!!

Okay, I found where to add these OpenDns numbers. Did that and it changed nothing. Channel store is like it always was; works for a couple of minutes, then it can't be accessed any longer, until the box is rebooted again. That, plus Netflix is always 2 dot picture quality, never 4 anymore. If it loa...

Re: NO CHANNEL STORE!!!! HELP!!!!!!

So, these DNS settings can be tried for all of us?

If so, I'd like to try.....how do I make these changes?

Re: Insufficient Storage - ROKU

Yup, all of s sudden I got this same nonsense. It wiped away my Crackle channel and I had to delete a bunch of channels to add Crackle again. And Crackle isn't working very well for me, lately. Maybe I'm nuts, but shouldn't I be able to add all the channels I want? One at a time, that is, after I re...

Re: NO CHANNEL STORE!!!! HELP!!!!!!

In the short time I've had my Roku, and been watching these forums, I've seen that this has been a long standing problem. Even after I installed the latest update, nothing has changed. It may even be worse now. My prediction? It will remain a long standing problem. And I don't like saying that, but ...

Re: Traffic Meter Reports

I added the Net Usage add-on from Firefox and it won't work. Seems that it isn't supported in the US. Would have been nice, as it sits on the toolbar.

Re: Traffic Meter Reports

That appears to be provider-specific to Internode, just FYI. I'll try and remember to post usage. I'm using an app that has to be reset manually each month for now, but it reads info from SNMP so it should be as accurate as a router with built in info. I'm hoping to find something that can easily k...
