Re: Spotify App Size

The best suggestion is to do factory resets until it clears up. It may take one. It may take many. It’s a weird bug that hasn’t been fully nailed down, it will eventually clear up with a factory reset. I'll give it a try, Thanks. Edit 7:16pm: That did the trick. Too bad everything didn't load back ...

Re: Spotify App Size

Apps really only take up cache space.. once the cache is full, less used apps get kicked out until they're used again.. Have you tried rebooting your Roku? I've restarted it from the menu, unplugged and waited 10 minutes and did the "press Home 5X etc" reboot, reinstalled and the same not...

Spotify App Size

I tried installing the Spotify app on my Express+ (3910RW), Roku software version 9.0.0 build 4142-51. The app worked fine. Later, I tried to use the YouTube, Prime Video, Hulu and Xfinity Stream apps. I got a 'run out of space' error. I uninstalled the Spotify app, the other apps ran normally. I re...

Re: Netflix raises prices for all U.S. subscribers - Netflix raising prices for 58M US subscribers as costs rise

Not an issue for me at this time. I have Spectrum internet (Charter) which has no data caps. If they ever do institute a data cap I will have to reconsider but until then it;s stream on, stream on. --brett Keep a close eye on your plan. The trades reported when Comcast started testing data cap in a...

Re: Netflix raises prices for all U.S. subscribers - Netflix raising prices for 58M US subscribers as costs rise

In December between my wife and I, we watched no less than 20 episodes of TV on Netflix.. $10 a month, 20 shows.. $.50 a show. Even when it goes to $13, I'll still be happy with the per episode/movie price. The biggest problem for me is the $2 here, $5 there, $1 another place, $119 for a new year o...

Re: Netflix raises prices for all U.S. subscribers - Netflix raising prices for 58M US subscribers as costs rise

I like those that have responded above will moan and groan for a few days but then accept it as just a $2.00 monthly increase even on the premiere 4 screen plan with UHD (4K) I have that will go from $13.99 to $15.99/month. Still a good value for the price IMO considering how much content I do watc...

Re: Netflix raises prices for all U.S. subscribers - Netflix raising prices for 58M US subscribers as costs rise

I think a LOT of people will moan and complain about this and threaten to quit, all for $2/month. In the end, they won't quit, because something-something-I-have-to-watch-specific-show-or-my-kids-will-complain.  It's still a good service, and provides a lot of content for the price. I quit Netflix ...

Re: Amazon Prime Video HDCP Error

Ok...I came upon a fix. First, turn your SD TV off. Then, unplug the Roku, wait 30 seconds and plug the Roku back in leaving the SD TV off. When the Roku has rebooted, turn on the SD TV, start up the Amazon app, start a show or movie and the app will work, no HDCP error.  I don't know why, but it wi...

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

I just got an e-mail saying all supported Roku streaming players are now running 7.7. My older Roku 1 (2710X) is still running 7.6.0 Build: 4120 and won't manually upgrade. Unplugging and restarting it doesn't trigger the upgrade either. All my other Roku's upgraded long ago, including my oldest one...

"The updated Amazon app is the only one that throws that error, and it happens on both HD and SD content."

Re: Amazon Prime Video HDCP Error

Ah, missed the composite output. Question: this looks like it gets powered via a USB cable into a USB AC adapter. Can you try a couple of things? First, try a different USB cable and different AC adapter. If you have an Android phone, for example, it might have the same type of USB cable and its ow...

Re: Amazon Prime Video HDCP Error

Did you try the HDMI extender cable (a short HDMI cable a couple of inches long) between the Express and the TV, vs plugging the stick directly into the TV? Roku will send you a free one if this didn't come with it.  https://my.roku.com/hdmi Also, interested to know what SD TV you have that has HDM...

You certainly shouldn't be getting HDCP errors with an SDTV.  What is your Express+ display type set to (Settings->Display type)?

Amazon Prime Video HDCP Error

Roku Express + on an SD TV, updates are up-to-date, the new style Amazon Prime Video Roku app. Any movie or TV show I try to watch plays for a few seconds, then the picture freezes and an HDCP Error box pops up in the middle of the screen with an explanation of what HDCP is, suggestions about checki...
