Re: Sling on purple streaming stick

Has it ever worked on the purple stick? I feel like it may never have been officially supported. Very slow, old hardware. Sling's Website say "LT and higher"  https://help.sling.com/en/support/solutions/articles/33000218990-what-devices-support-the-sling-tv-app- I suspect that's out of da...

Re: Removing dead channels

On active channels there is a quick option to remove the channel.  However when on a channel that is no longer active you get the message "this channel is no longer available" but no way that I can find to delete it.  How do I delete it from my home channel list. If they were private chan...

Re: Must sign in to HBO NOW if when I leave HBO channel

I can't remove the channel - unlike other channels, I am not given that option when I press the * key when HBO NOW channel is selected.  I suspect the reason for this is that HBO NOW is a subscribed channel so I probably have to cancel the sub, then remove and then reinstall.   If you subscribed th...

Re: Video/audio interruptions

Connected how? HDMI? Wireless via mirroring or some casting function? Regular HDMI. There's an option for HDMI(arc) that I'm not using if that matters. So you're using your computer to locate online content, then outputting it from your computer to an HDMI input on a Roku TV? And everything is fine...

Re: Video/audio interruptions

Recently I've connected my roku tv to my desktop computer for watching movies and shows and it mostly runs great. However there's a 3-5 second interruption to the video and audio together when starting a video or changing to fullscreen, and sometimes just when trying to fast forward or pause. I've ...

Re: Constant Re-Activating channels, ESPN is daily.

The only other possibility that comes to mind is account credentials sharing. More and more are cracking down on credentials being used across locations. If that's not it, Dan's suggestions are the most likely cause.

Re: Roku 2 Remote Died Today

hjerne, does that mean that my Roku 2 might still work through the app?  If so, then it is worth a test.  Thanks.  It just occurred to me though that it might be too late to start using the app.  My Roku is frozen on the setup menu on the page to select languages. Not wanting to throw a monkey wren...

Re: Roku 3 unable to connect

If you have an SD card installed in the Roku3, try removing it and see if that will allow it to complete the boot up.  I've not experienced this, but I've read it can sometimes help. ^^ Yes! Do try this! I have experienced it before, and have no excuse for not thinking of it in my previous response...

Re: Roku 3 unable to connect

I have a Roku 3 for maybe four years.  Have had no problems.  Recently did not use the unit for about two months.  When trying to use it all I get is the Roku letters dancing around on a blue screen.  Remote is showing paired.  Has not control.  Have disconnected unit several times.  Switched TVs. ...

Re: Finding the right TV for Roku and Vue

Also consider a Roku Stick with a non-Roku TV. As suggested, get a good quality TV and add the price of a Roku device and see if that's in budget. That avoids the low-end hardware that seems to come with smaller Roku TV sets.

Thanks very much! I suspected it was just too old of a model. Will the Express or Premiere work with Hulu live?

As suggested, the Ultra is top notch, but the devices you listed -- and all Roku devices released in the last four years -- support Hulu with Live TV.

Re: Can’t access Roku channels even though I pay for cable

Hi, I previously had frontier as my cable provider. At that time, I was able to stream most channels on my Roku if it was apart of my cable subscription. Long story short, I dropped frontier, went to a different provider and now I’m back with frontier. I have the same cable package as before. The o...
