Re: Installing Roku Apps on Android TV Box

Roku firmware is a completely different platform. Only works on Roku boxes and Roku TVs. Apps only work on Roku firmware. Is not Android based at all. So, not possible.

No, I haven't exchanged it.  I looked into it on Amazon, but the option to exchange/return is not there which means it's outside of the exchange period.

You probably need to use the Roku Support site, then to get it returned/exchanged. https://support.roku.com/contactus

Re: Old TV shows now in 4:3 - RUINS TV screen

Yeah, has always been 4:3 on 16:9 TVs. You can make that adjustment on the TV. Also, I will say this is a user preference. I prefer my shows in their native aspect ratio as do many others I imagine. So, doubt this is a dealbreaker.

My Roku Premiere+ that was bought in July just had this same issue.  We couldn't have used the port more than a few times since we owned it.  Will Roku cover this in the warranty?  Who should I contact?

Re: Acorn tv channel does not show on roku channel

Based on your earlier post , it may be best to state up front that Acorn TV is available in the U.S.  http://support.acorn.tv/support/solutions/articles/1000215534-where-is-acorn-tv-available- Using a VPN to get around these restrictions doesn't always work.

Re: Roku 3 storage expansion slot

You'll want to use a USB stick for playing movies locally, not an SD card.

Re: 1080i

Yeah, getting that refurbed Roku 3 for $50 to move from 720p to 1080i would be as far as I go... It won't make one bit of difference... the ONLY way you'll see 1080i on that TV is through the TV Tuner. There isn't any 1080i material to watch on Roku. Size of the TV makes a difference, too. If you a...

Re: Bit Rate Override question

One on the reasons why I bought the Roku Express box was the fact that there is the option to change the bitrate settings for the box. In changing the bitrate settings from Automatic to 1.0mB/S I found out from my ISP bandwidth usage that it doesn't seem to work. I went back into the bitrate menu a...

Re: Progress on fixes V8 introduced?

Any update on fixing any of the V8 FW issues? Depends on who you ask and what issues. Some, yes, some, no. I can say the issue with the Auto Resolution setting to 720p on 1080p TVs has been fixed. I think there's still some bug fixing still going on for 8.0 and 8.0.1. Screen Mirroring is still an i...

Re: "Internet download speed"

It works fine for streaming 1080p content but I have no idea if it would do 4k HDR. Instead of critiquing my question, does anyone have an answer to it? It seems like it would be pretty simple to look at your Roku settings and tell me what it says. I feel like I'm asking if anyone can tell me what ...

Re: Roku news channel with no commercial breaks

News Channels are pretty much a mainstream advertising platform, there's none that exist without commercials that are not biased. Try Pluto.tv app, has many news choices on it. None are commercial free.

More drastic, but reset the Roku, which should allow you to specify the new WiFi settings.

He doesn't have a remote, so this would put him in a worse situation.
