Re: Roku TCL 49S517 2.0 or 5.1?

"Theoretically everything checks out." Yeah this is what concerns me. I am mixing 4K, HDMI 2.0 and ARC into my entirely 1080p 1.4 HDMI setup. Besides that I have a bit of an unconventional setup with a projector using a powered HMDI splitter that shares the TV display with the projector. ...

Re: Roku TCL 49S517 2.0 or 5.1?

5.1 or whatever is used in your stream. It is also whatever your AVR can accept. Mine does not like Dolby D+, but works well with Dolby D without plus. I found the specs of the TV. They say it passes DD, DD+ and Dolby Atmos. My Onk reads all of those. I'm thinking I should be able to use the apps o...

Roku TCL 49S517 2.0 or 5.1?

Just got a the model Roku TV 4K as a present. Question is will the ARC of the TV stream 2.0 or 5.1 if connected to the ARC input on the AVR? Do I need a new Roku Ultra? Previously I've only had dumb TV's and only connected to my AVR with separate devices so I'm not sure how this works.

Re: OMG! New Amazon Prime Video UI .Thank you!

What a vast improvement. That's all I have to say.  "Have they put all Seasons of a TV Series under one tab? So irritating to see a separate tab for every season of a series." Agreed. That is annoying. I mean you can get to a different season with a couple clicks after you click on the sh...

I agree Bob. Whomever or whatever team designed the latest Hulu app "improvement" should have lost their jobs.

What a vast improvement. That's all I have to say.  What is the Version and Build of your updated Prime Video app? TCL Roku TV user here and I am still seeing the old, hard to navigate UI with Version 7.1 - Build 2017082110 of the Prime Video app. Guess it may take awhile to get an update out to al...

Re: OMG! New Amazon Prime Video UI .Thank you!

I see a cosmetic change, but no new functionality. It still puts my most-frequently used item—my Watchlist—out of reach, all the way over to the next-to-last tab, making it hard to get to, over & over, umpteen times every day. And we still can't use the rewind & fast forward keys to scroll ...

Will the Roku Express get the new Amazon interface?

Just wondering. Not really a fan of it but I just guess it's something I have to get used to. Just purchased the Express for my sons bedroom. I see it has the latest Netflix and Hulu user interfaces.

Re: Roku 3 vs. Roku Streaming Stick 2016?

Hi David, My guess is interference from the TV which may have been solved with the HDMI extender .. that said the current Roku 2 (4210) is a fine choice I thought i had read where some kind of extenders or wi-fi signal boosters helped the connection. Maybe in the sticky thread. My answer was to jus...

Re: Roku 3 vs. Roku Streaming Stick 2016?

... upgrade to the new streaming stick since it's the new thing Roku is touting. I thought I would get a faster load speed and less crashing with it. I was very dissappointed. ... "it never took this long with my other boxes." I let it load all my channels and tried streaming and every ch...

Re: Roku 3 vs. Roku Streaming Stick 2016?

I had a R1 2710X connected wirelessly on my lanai and it worked well. It just seemed a little slow and proned to crashing for some reason. I have R3's and an R2 4210X on the other tv's and I just bought the cheapest model I could find thinking I wouldn't spend much time in the area of the house. Sin...

Re: Roku streaming stick 2016 is the UI 1080p?

Honestly, I think the UI 720/1080 issue is funny. I'm interested in the actual channel content and performance , not some static screen of boxes whose text that I can easily - repeat - easily read at 720p resolution. Come on...that's a deal breaker? For those who say this is a huge deal, why don't ...

Re: the channels seem less than 300,000

Isn't that just defaulting to the screen saver after a period of time? That's not a glitch that's normal operation.
