Re: Roku Ultra recommendation

Thanks for the response. As to media sources, I stream directly from Roku channels rather than a storage device. The LG ARC port is set as the audio output. I posted this yesterday since someone local was selling a 4661 but after exchanging messages, he changed his mind though its possible he'll dec...

Roku Ultra recommendation

I've been using a Roku 3 for years and have upgraded my TV to an LG OLED. As a home theater enthusiast, I want to slowly upgrade the rest of the system which currently includes a Marantz SR-6005 AVR, Panasonic Blu Ray and Definitive 5.1 speaker system. Monitoring the Roku forum I've seen countless p...

Re: Vudu channel issues

Just found another thread where others were having the captions problem. Seems obvious a glitch in the Vudu channel back end occurred which turned captions on. In order to fix it, you start a movie, pause, then scroll right to the CC button which shows English and click it to OFF which is supposed t...

Re: Vudu channel issues

Do you share the account with someone else? When both titles and settings are changing without you doing so, I'd think there might be someone else using the account simultaneously. Try changing your password, in case someone has hacked your account. Just wild guesses here. I'd contact Vudu if that ...

Vudu channel issues

I've been a fan of this channel for quite awhile and often have a Wish List of over 30 titles. A couple of days ago while attempting to add selections, only a select number of those I wanted showed up in the list. Assuming it was a channel issue, I deleted it, power cycled and added it again to no a...

Re: Hulu image too large for screen on Roku Ultra 4k

Scary...so glad I never upgraded my Roku 3 to the Ultra and cancelled Hulu after the free trial. The fact that Hulu doesn't support Roku for surround sound is staggering in itself

AC adapter question

I have a Roku 3 and have the opportunity to upgrade to an Ultra 4640 but its missing the AC adapter and cord. I have a suspicion the one from my 3 will work though I want to make sure before getting the Ultra..Anyone ever tried swapping to see if it works? Thanks

Re: Roku Ultra stopped delivering picture and sound

I updated the firmware on the AVR, and checked settings. HDMI inputs are mapped correctly. It's set up the same way it has been for over a year. Still no picture or sound, with the same error message on the TV “No signal.”  Testing finds the Roku delivers signal to the TV and works fine when direct...

Re: Roku Ultra upgrade?

Thanks for the screen shot and advice. I was looking at the Marantz manual under HDMI and it has the capability to turn the power on/off for a connected device but it requires enabling a setting. It also mentions something about ARC requiring the setting to be turned on, so I'll try that as well. Re...

Re: Roku Ultra upgrade?

Do you have audio out HDMI ARC enabled in the TV audio settings? There's no visual difference between internal apps and Roku on the same Netflix/Vudu content, aside from DV vs HDR10 differences. Yes. In Sound settings ARC HDMI has a check mark next to it and beneath it is the Sync setting I believe...

Re: Roku Ultra stopped delivering picture and sound

Any chance its the Ethernet/LAN connection? I also have a wired setup and usually the 'no connection' means no internet. I guess there's a chance its the Ethernet port on the Roku which would suck. I ask since I posted a separate thread seeking feedback about upgrading from the solid performing Roku...

Re: Roku Ultra upgrade?

Bacon...I've never liked the LG remote much so I didn't bother watching with the native Netflix or Vudu apps. I decided to give it a shot, but for some odd reason, I'm not getting sound in spite of the fact I'm using the ARC HDMI port connected to the HDMI-TV input on the Marantz (all HDMI inputs on...

Re: Roku Ultra upgrade?

Since the question is really about which is the best 4K device for your OLED set, I'd go with the latest-gen Apple TV. Why? Because it offers Dolby Vision HDR vs. just standard HDR-10. As far as I know, the Shield doesn't offer this (or at least didn't as recently as January of this year).   Of cou...

Re: Roku Ultra upgrade?

The Roku 3 was a really solid performer. If it's still working well, and you aren't in need of 4K/HDR/Atmos support, I don't see any reason to upgrade. That said, I've been fortunate that I have had no issues with my older Ultra 4640. It is connected to a Yamaha AVR and currently on a 1080 plasma, ...
