Re: CBS All Access, Changing Live TV station

Most devices/apps that provide access to network stations are tied to your account's address. DirecTV and Dish are the same way. For whatever reason, the networks don't want you watching stations outside your local area. With the satellite companies, if you let them know that your viewing location ...

Re: Roku for Hospital Rooms

I had a thought and this might make this thread more of a major feature/business model change request. So, here's what Roku should do. I don't know if they would need to release a separate firmware or separate model, but create a Roku Business site. Similar to Apple's Business site. No need to worry...

Re: Roku Surround Sound

Thanks for the interest. If I run plex on my computer over the same hdmi connection and play the same video with plex, it shows as a 5 channel stream rather than a two channel stream like roku.  I have the same results when playing a Hulu video. Again, might depend on the format of the audio. AAC 5...

Re: Roku for Hospital Rooms

Yeah, my government phone uses AirWatch (now called Hub for some strange reason). Since I'm not an admin for the system, I don't know exactly how much control they can do, as I still have a lot of control of my phone. But yeah, ATV might be one option, especially if you'd like some sort of centrali...

Re: Roku for Hospital Rooms

As a System Administrator for a Hospital and a long-time Roku user, no, Roku is not for hospitals. If my management approached me, I would say bad idea. Might want to look at Apple TV and use a Mobile Device Management platform. I see on AirWatch, that AppleTV is a platform it can manage. Since tvOS...

Re: Volume Control Button changes both TV and Home Theater

When I set up my Roku stick and remote, I connected it to an HDMI slot on my Onkyo home theater system.  There was some activity to set the volume control button to regulate the volume.  It worked perfectly. My TV was basically set at zero volume and the Onkyo responded to the volume button on the ...

Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

You will notice that none of the Second Generation Rokus are on the list to get Roku 9.2 (except for the 3500 Streaming Stick). So, keep that in mind if you have a Roku 2 XS/XD/HD, Roku LT, Roku HD, and the old Roku MHL Streaming Stick.

Factory reset both Rokus, I am thinking the SSO feature on Roku's platform might be malfunctioning for you. NOTE: the people that have replied are not official Roku support. We just reply to help out.  Edit: you mentioned USA and NBC say you are already authorized. Try logging them out first. Any ap...

Re: roku 3rd part log out after system update now no authorization activate roku

Remove all the apps that are giving you trouble, reboot, then reinstall. Might be one is hanging onto bad login info and with single sign on feature, could be passing on that info. Factory reset would work, too.

I just bought a Roku premiere box (3920X) and hooked it to my Yamaha AVR (RX-V463) just like the old Dish sat dvr box, with the other HDMI to the TV.  I've tried every possible combination of Audio and HDMI variables in the Settings and cannot get any 5.1 surround.  Only 2 speaker stereo for any Ne...
