Re: Hulu Beta

FYI, to those who want to use it have to be on 7.7 firmware, so if you are having issues with 7.7 and rolled back to 7.6, you can't use this Hulu Beta Channel

Re: Pirate content on Roku Channels?

My experience over the last two weeks or so is that XTV and CCloud disappear from my channel line-up every couple of days. Roku support tries to say it's the channels fault, but common sense of the new disclaimer + how an "OS" and "app" interact says they're bullocks .....so why...

Re: Provider Log In Times Out on Many Apps Now?

Most likely and issue between your provider and the authentication service those specific channels are using. I would contact your Cable Provider. I just logged into AMC with no problems, so likely a Provider specific problem.

Re: Roku Stick - Netflix not playing and extreme slow performance

I have had the same issue since an automatic system update last week. All the other apps work fine, but Netflix is unusable. Netflix works fine on a PC or tablet- just not Roku. I did a factory reset, and Netflix started working faster than ever until it automatically updated again. Back to unusabl...

No, totally dependent on your TV/Monitor for that.

Re: Netflix question

That is the bitrate of the stream, not the speed it's coming to you. Basically it's telling you the minimum speed needed for the stream. You are getting the HD streams at those rates. Notice the 1920 x 1080 in that same prompt, that's the resolution of the video (1080p). Think 15.26 Mbps is the rate...

Re: Roku stick - Netflix issues after last Roku update.

The older Roku Stick 3500, Netflix sometimes takes a bit longer to load if it's not cached. I remember back when it had to fully load every time it launched on the 3500 and it was painful.

Re: Can Premiere+ Output DTS HD MA 7.1?

It would be nice if the Roku (4 Ultimate here) would detect the DTS-MA HD source and Direct Play it from Plex on its own. Right now, it gets transcoded when on "Auto" though clearly you are correct as if you Force Direct Play, it plays the DTS core audio just fine. Where is this setting s...

Re: Bit Rate Override question

OK thank you I understand. One more thing about bit rate screen. Is it OK if I periodically visit that screen just to make sure its set to Automatic.  Also the X indicates which setting is selected right?  This X is the selected setting, yes. It will never be set to anything but Automatic unless yo...

Re: Bit Rate Override question

I just wanna make sure I did it right. When I visited the screen, Automatic was highlighted and there was an X next to it. I pressed the OK button and the screen went away, was that the right away to close that screen Or should I have used the back arrow? Thanks You should be fine. If you had Autom...

Re: Bit Rate Override question

So if my speed from my internet provider is 75mbps and I left it on Automatic, will I get higher speeds than 3.5mbps. I was confused by the speeds listed in that bit rate list. The highest is 3.5, which is very slow. So if I leave it on Automatic will Roku choose one of the speeds on that list or w...

Re: New roku .. strange issue

I've had this happen with Pluto.TV in the past on my older Roku 2 XS. Doesn't happen all the time, just a fluke every once in a while. I haven't seen it happen in a while. I just reboot the Roku when it happens.

Re: Roku stick - Netflix issues after last Roku update.

Netflix has a "Test Participation" setting on your Account page on their website, turn that off. Seems to be causing people problems on both 7.6 and 7.7 versions of firmware.

Re: Has anyone added a channel from sling tv to roku main menu?

You can add the TV everywhere apps and use Sling account to subscribe to them, but you can't directly add channels in the Sling app to home screen. Also, not all TV Everywhere apps have live tv, just VOD. Plus some TV everywhere channels you have to navigate to just get to the live stream. Not all a...
