Re: Child Proof?

[size=100][font=-apple-system, Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, sans-serif]My daughter who is 6 has been playing around with watching her shows on the Roku. For some reason she is calling me into the living room because it's stuck on 'can't find a network signal'. I think she is hitting &...

Re: Wow

I like to know something about the spam. How do you guys decide that someone is spam? Attempting to sell something in a support forum. Like renting an apartment in Dubai, for instance. Roku has seen fit to simply move that post of yours to "Off Topic" rather than remove it and remove your...

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...

Re: Refurbished

... Exactly! Repackaged, not refurbished. Still reseller refurbished and will only carry the store's 30-90 days return policy. This will be listed somewhere on box or receipt. OP asked based on the box and contents description, not based on anything on the receipt. That indicates no process was fol...

Re: HBO Subscription through Direct TV (HBO Go) and Roku Streaming

I have an HBO subscription through my Direct TV account. Is there a way to use this through Roku? (The default login goes to HBO Now - which is not the same). I might be misunderstanding, but you should be able to install HBO GO on your Roku and sign in with your Direct TV credentials, HBO Now is a...

My guess is, this was a store purchase, the buyer returned the Roku for a refund, and the store poorly reboxed the Roku, instead of returning it to Roku for refurbishment, because management at that store is probably lazy.

Re: Refurbished

I bought a new Roku Ultra, but it looks like someone has been in the box. Is there anyway to tell if it's been refurbished? Roku refurbished items have a B suffix on the model number. For example, a refurbished Roku Ultra would be 4660B or 4661B. No, my box had a second tape seal, and the device ha...

Re: Roku uses to much data?

I am at 926Gb for the first month of use this is compared to a AppleTV box in another room using less than 100Gb and both TV's are used about the same.  When you're done streaming, return to the Home screen. Press the Home button. That will make the Roku stop streaming. If you simply turn the TV of...
