Re: [Official] OS 9 Release Notes

My TCL 6 Series updated to the 9.x OS the other day. On 8.x everything worked almost flawlessly. Now after installing 9.x, the ATV 4K does not even give Dolby Vision as an option. And it won't even auto switch to HDR10. While my FireTV 4K stick and Philips UHD BD player still have no problems sendin...

Re: [Official] Roku OS 8.2

I just got this update today on my TCL 6 Series TV. So far I have not run into any issues. It's working fine with Atmos/DD+ from the internal apps. As well as HDR10 and Dolby Vision from the internal apps and HDMI inputs.

Re: Roku 4 a good choice?

Just run it directly through the Tv then. Most TVs support DD+ that the streaming services use. The TV will just use the ARC to send it to the receiver.

Re: Roku Ultra remote losing pairing after some time of non-use

The Ultra uses a WiFi Direct remote. I force my Ultra to use channel 165 for the WiFi Direct channel. Where I know there are not many devices using that channel in my area. My remote always stays paired. Even when my rechargeable batteries die. I just put in some more batteries and it still works. I...

Re: Ultra Specs

Thanks!  These are the same numbers I found last night.  Quad core at 1.2 GHz and only 1GB of memory appears, just looking at the numbers, to make the Ultra at the 130.00 I paid lat fall a less powerful streamer than my fireTV boxes with 2GB of memory and up to 2 GHz quad cores. In the real world t...

Re: Roku freezes and reboots

Mine does the same thing.  It's even happened multiple times while streaming a movie.  This seems to have started within the last several weeks.  Perhaps it's related to the last update or the one before that.   It's really frustrating.  I'm considering replacing it with my Roku 4 for now. And my U...

Re: Roku Ultra Netflix not nearly as good as TV native Netflix app

Same deal with me. I have a Sony Bravia XBR65x750d, and the TV's built in apps look much better. All apps on the Roku look darker using HDR. Its less that they look darker, and more that they seem duller. The colors don't pop like they do on the built in TV apps. The FandangoNow app also looks pret...

Re: Netflix new annoying auto preview when browsing will make me cancel for good.

 If this annoying offensive feature does not give us a option to turn off I am done with NF for good.  My PS4 got this feature and while I was browsing it would start to play with audio and dialog.  One trailer has the word a** okay but another said s*it.  One might even had the f word in it of cou...

Re: Roku Ultra HDMI Audio Drops and HDCP unauthorized

Fortunately I've not had any audio dropouts from my Ultra. Going to a Sony UHD TV and using the ARC to a SOny speaker bar. 7.5.1 and 7.2.2 are both fine with audio for me. But since being downgraded to 7.2.2 I've seen the HDCP issue two times(I never saw it when I was previously on 7.2.2). I'm going...

Re: Roku Ultra - HDCP Unauthorized... AGAIN!

I guess they are making Roku's for the visual impaired.  The Roku is the only device that has major HDCP problems. I had zero problems with this hdcp error until my Ultra got downgraded back to 7.2.2. Now I've run into the error twice. I've had my Ultra for over two months and this never happened t...

Re: Roku Express does not work with 5GHz wireless

The Roku express specs show 802.11 (b/g/n). If it handled 5ghz frequencies it should also list that it handles 802.11a. Just from the specs listed I know it should only handle 2.4ghz. Of course they could always get their specs wrong. But typically when a product handles 5ghz it also has access to 8...

since being downgraded, I've seen the HDCP error twice. I had never even seen that on my Roku Ultra before. Downgrading my Ultra has definitely made things much worse. My Ultra had been performing great the last couple of months. Since the downgrade ive run into multiple issues. A couple that I had ...

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

Crap.. Now that my Ultra is back to 7.2.2 HDMI -CEC is no longer working properly. With 7.5.1, I could finally control the volume with the roku remote while I actually watched content from the Roku. With 7.2.2 it only works when viewing content from other devices, never when viewing content from the...
