Re: Broken eithernet port

Nah. "Broken Ethernet port?" What does that mean? It it's physically broken, that's you, and isn't covered under warranty. If it simply doesn't connect via Ethernet, that might be a hardware/warranty issue.  But really, it sounds like you're an a-hole with a false sense of entitlement. Is ...

Re: AV Receiver recommendation

IMHO, stay away from Onkyo. Prefer Denon/Marantz. Pioneer/Yamaha are in between.

Re: Why does no Roku streaming device include Gigabit Ethernet?

Supporting local media means supporting the bitrates that are necessary for such support.  You are confusing want and need. Bitrates greater than 40 Mbps average aren't necessary for local media, even 4K HDR. There are lots of people, including myself, streaming local media just fine within the wel...

Re: Why does no Roku streaming device include Gigabit Ethernet?

Nope. You're still wrong. No where do I see where Roku has claimed streaming rates above what I've already quoted, local or remote.

their documented support does include local, high bitrate media

Citation needed.

Re: Why does no Roku streaming device include Gigabit Ethernet?

Roku doesn't need more than a 100 Mbps Ethernet, because that's much more than sufficient to meet the documented streaming capabilities. Average Streaming Video Bit rate: H.264, up to 10 Mbps. H.265 and VP9, up to 40 Mbps. Peak Video Bit rate: 1.5x average (for all). Maximum audio rate is  768 Kbps....

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/google-roku-sonos-to-fix-dns-rebinding-attack-vector/ You're doing it wrong.  DNS rebinding attacks work by getting some host (e.g. a user's PC) to access local devices via external names (e.g. badactor.example.com might tell the PC to go to 192.168.1....

Google is moving Android away from Miracast (which is what Roku supports) to their own Chromecast.

Re: why does my roku 3 keeps deleting channels

Yep. Don't assume. Log into your account and check what devices are associated. You may have been hacked and someone added a device onto your account. So, when they add/delete channels, it happens on your's too.

Re: Can a Streaming Stick+ output 23.976Hz instead of 24Hz?

"  It results in frame doubling." No, it doesn't. The incoming TCP stream is not isochronous, and bears no timing relationship to the stream client/display timing. You have much to learn, padowan. This has all been recognized and resolved a long, long, time ago.  BTW, the term "frame ...

Re: Can a Streaming Stick+ output 23.976Hz instead of 24Hz?

Wow, you know just enough to be dangerous. Put down the Google, it doesn't work like you think it works. 24 Hz output of streamed video created at 23.976 Hz does not result in frame slips.

"I would rather not get into your misunderstanding of how streaming H264 or H265 works" Yes, because it's obvious you don't know enough to explain it. You simply don't know what you don't know, so you think you know it better than you do. Plex, too, uses TCP and will not starve the client....

Re: Can a Streaming Stick+ output 23.976Hz instead of 24Hz?

So, yes, if you mismatch frame rate with refresh rate, you will have frame doubling or frame skipping. It's unavoidable. If you want, I can plot out how this works, but it does not actually feed one frame at a time. The video decoder writes to the frame buffer, which is the part of memory that defi...

Re: Can a Streaming Stick+ output 23.976Hz instead of 24Hz?

Thing is, it's a streaming stick. The upstream source isn't forcing or starving data, some gets buffered and then the stick just throttle it to the rate it needs to keep the buffer full. So, where does this mismatch which supposedly causes a dupe or skipped frame happen?  The stick is just feeding t...
