Re: Dolby 5.1 vs Dolby ProLogic II

I recently purchased a Roku express. I have a Samsung smart TV and a Denon receiver that can encode many different audio formats such as Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS, and Dolby pro logic II.  It does NOT do Dolby Digital Plus or any of the newer formats.  I followed the instructions exactly as the packag...

Re: Help! No search function - ROKU Ultra

Umm this seems a little silly. Not having the ability to search is a pretty big deal. I'm in the same boat. Content restrictions make sense but crippling other features? How is that fair??? I bought the device in large part because of the ability to do a voice search and now here I am in South East...

Re: Roku XD 2050x 1080p, Channels & CC

Most channels have ceased to work. Netflix is pretty much it. I still have my first 2008 Roku model. Definitely limited.

Re: CC subtitles with an old Roku XR converter

Your response doesn't seem to apply to the Roku XR converter. Its Home > Settings page does not include Accessibility. Does anyone know a hack to enable CC on a Roku XR box? Thanks in advance for the info. Mike in Austin Bad news, the Netflix app on that old of a Roku never had the Subtitle abiliti...

Aren't plugins removed from Plex?  I know mine are.

You can possibly get to them via the RMP using DLNA. They removed the Plugins pretty much from all the Clients as of this week.

Google's Flagship devices since the Nexus 6 only do Chromecast, not Miracast. I think Samsung Androids do have Miracast.

Re: Connection issues.. Roku's connectivity website lacking

You configure the DNS? I think that is required for Roku to function.

Re: default channel list has many many unavailable channels

If you import a Roku into a region that that it's not supported in or if you import a Roku designed for USA into Canada or another country, that is expected.

Re: YouTube Alternative for Roku 2 XS

FYI, Google does not allow for alternative apps on Roku. So, if the performance is poor for you, get a new Roku.

Re: "An Unexpected Problem"

I've never used casting from anything to anything, other than a few times testing it from an Android phone to a Roku Ultra. That worked fine, but it was two years ago. With updates to both the Roku and Android firmware, I can't say it still works the same.  I'm looking for portability, something th...

Re: No Dolby Digital on HBO GO and Netflix

Hi, I have issue with roku premiere plus not showing Dolby digital on Samsung Tv so this is causing sound distortion on Bose v25 system connected to the tv through optical cable. Can anybody help me resolve this issue? You won't get Dolby Digital Plus decoding on your TV. Not possible. You need to ...

Re: No Dolby Digital on HBO GO and Netflix

@twiceover @atc98092 Your Receiver is likely not able to decode Dolby Digital Plus. That's the issue. If you can get a hold of the older Roku Ultra Model (4640X), that would work with your setup as it has a built in Dolby Digital Plus decoder.  https://www.amazon.com/Roku-Ultra-Streaming-Player-Enh...

Re: Continue Watching - Turn off "Press OK to Continue" prompt.

Hi all sorry I'm 6 years late to this thread, I would just like to add that while using my PS4 I do not get any prompts asking me if I'm still there... However if I was to go on Netflix via the Roku I get a prompt if I'm still watching. It's just Roku collecting information who is active and who is...

Re: Roku Streaming Stick Constantly freezing

Router being right next to it is probably the culprit. Likely interfering with the Wi-Fi connection between the Remote and the Roku. No, does not go through the router at all, separate direct Wi-Fi connection. One thing to try also is make sure the Wi-Fi channel on the Router is set to a single chan...

Re: Connecting iPhone and ruko on a sprint mobile hotspot

Usually that means there's a setting on the Wi-Fi/Hotspot preventing devices from talking to one another (it's a security feature). Need to disable it. I would contact Sprint to see how to do that as the setting is on the hotspot itself. Usually setting is called "Wi-Fi Isolation"
