Re: You Tube channel won't start

Anyone having trouble after today's YouTube app update? I can't get it to start on my Roku 4 - I get a black screen for about 5 secs, then it returns to home. I tried rebooting, deleting app and reinstalling - still won't load. Having trouble too. Roku updated YouTube channel today and now it won't...

Re: Sling TV: Have they added AMC and other channels?

I think they have a winner. For me the service has been rock solid. I have plenty of bandwidth though (24mb down/2mb up). Yeah, I need to get used to the interface a bit. I wish there was a DVR option, but I'm sure one day there will be. I hope AMC gets added by Sunday. Otherwise I need to wait unti...

Re: Sling TV: Have they added AMC and other channels?

I just signed up this morning (had trouble getting in to Roku this morning). I can't wait to come home and try it out. This is getting close to the Holy Grail. It's right on the edge with being pricy, but I still went ahead. My problem is that I cannot put up an antenna, and I'm too far away to use ...

Re: New Netflix Experience on Roku 3: Issues

Besides complaining about issues here, I think we need to complain to Netflix as well. They have a phone number you can call and speak to someone. I don't think there's an email for suggestions or complaints, but they do have a Twitter account. Their Twitter is @Netflixhelps I just got a response fr...

Re: New Netflix: Auto Continue

The New Netflix on Roku 3 has picked up a feature from the web site, where a TV program will automatically roll on to the next episode without any input from the user. This is bad. If I fall asleep watching Netflix on Roku, I blow apart my data cap on video I am not watching. Please stop in between...

Re: Games not Roku 3-compatible

I love my Roku 3 I got last night. The ear buds are BRILLIANT. The only thing sticking in my craw is the missing Angry Birds, Seasons & Rio. I'm still playing those! Is this just a temporary issue, or permanent? Unless something changed, your progress on those games won't transfer over to your ...

Re: Amazon, Roku, Kindle Fire HD Question

Just a suggestion, but I think you should be a good boyfriend and buy it for her on her account. It'll cost an extra 1.89 a week, but you'll be paid back much more than that in "good will"

Re: Kindle ?

Yeah, they have Audible for everything else, why not Roku? I need to fill up that 2gb SD card with something, maybe some audio books. Then I can laze on the couch and get some reading done at the same time.

Re: MLS MatchDay Live launched

I'm not big into sports, but I was thrilled to see MLS on the Roku recently. I signed up and paid my $60 (didn't see the half off coupon until after :( ) But, big red flag to anyone thinking about signing up. The channel is NOT available on the Roku 2. I found out the hard way last night when I was ...

Re: Canceled Netflix Anyone Else?

I didn't cancel, but I dropped the DVD plan. Net effect is Netflix is getting a lot of bad press and $2 less per month from me. They'll probably be OK for awhile because there are no good alternatives right now. If someone were to make a decent Netflix clone, Netflix would be out of business fairly ...

Re: Sam and Max / Secret of Monkey Island

If you're a fan of the oldies, check out http://www.gog.com . They have tons of good ol' games at a decent price, with no DRM. Now, Monkey Island is one of my all time favorites. Wouldn't a point and click adventure game be perfect for the Roku 2? Angry Birds works great, lets get Guybrush Threepwoo...

Re: No cable? You'll haveto wait 8 days to see Fox shows on

Yeah, you can still get your shows, but you have to have Hulu+, not the "regular" Hulu. Even so, so what we have to wait 8 days. There's NOTHING that important going on in MSM that you can't wait a week for. Buy a Nook or Kindle and read a book.
