Thanks for fixing the Blue-Tooth Remote Roku Team!

Seems to finally be working great! Can't comment on battery life as of yet though. Whatever you gurus did, it seemed to have worked, very responsive now, nice!

Keep up the good work!

But be sure to take a break and have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Signed: Very pleased Roku 2 XS owner...

Re: NBC channel

Gonna have to chime in here as well, could have left the Newscaster channel alone and just added the new (lousy) NBC News Channel? As well as Nowhere Man, the Full NBC Nightly News feed (including previous newscasts) and more is also available on the Mediafly Channel which is available in the channe...

Re: Number of titles in Netflix Queue slow down Performance?

Well don't forget about how your connection speed may play into this, I have over 300 in my queue and with the 30 Mb internet connection, it loads just fine, impressively fast, faster than the Wii (wifi) and many times faster than the LG BD550 Blu-ray player (wired). This is over wireless as well, b...

Re: Remote not working? Roku 2 XS

I also experienced issues with it as I posted here - http://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=44188 that got little attention... I bought the IR remote for $1.99 and its working great, never a response issue anymore. If this is how the BT remote is supposed to function, I'm not impressed with...

When is the Roku2 getting a GUI Makover?

Thought I remember mention of an eventual GUI facelift or makeover, is this something that is still coming? Would be nice to have more than that one looooong row of channels to move through, and how about putting that gpu to work with some nice graphics as well. Come on, whats it been, 4 months now ...

It said enable, so it appeared to be off, so I enabled it and then immediately disabled it. What do ya know? The IR remote now seems to be working fine. I have no flippen idea... Will do...

Re: Roku2 - New IR Remote Glitch (Roku2, not remote)

Its a CRT. Its NOT an interference issue, its the Roku, and did you read, I said completely consistent and repeatable, I used a stopwatch. After that said amount of time has passed, the IR remote responds perfectly fine, its also fine at all other times in non video channels, channel store, weather ...

Roku2 - New IR Remote Glitch (Roku2, not remote)

Just got the IR remote, ($1.99 deal) the remote itself is working fine. Its the Roku that's not! What happens: The Roku does not respond to the IR Remote for 40-55 sec from the start of a show, after this amount of time, it starts responding fine, this happens with all video playing channels. During...

Re: Roku Remote (for all models) $1.99 at the Channel Store

Just got it in the mail today, works great, instant button response compared to the bluetooth motion remote, no more many second delay waiting for it to "wake up" and respond and I'm sure the batteries will last a long time as well.

Humm...wonder if that's a misprint. Seems almost too good a deal.


Just bought one before I posted and just checked paypal, $1.99 + shipping of course, which was about $5 for me I think.

So deals legit.

Roku Remote (for all models) $1.99 at Channel Store/Roku.com

Don't use the motion feature of the remote much, annoyed at its unresponsiveness, or need an extra remote, here's a good deal on the standard (non-motion) remote, its responsive as a remote should be and better on batteries, also has some instant replay button as well? It's a $1.99 at the Channel St...

Re: Roku 2 Firmware 4.1 build 2663

No sync problems here, watched Netflix for hours after the update and its been fine. Two things that have been corrected for me, but are NOT listed in the change log: Composite connections on a 4:3 tv are now displayed correctly I think. There does not seem to be the stretched image anymore, but it ...
