Re: Where did News go?

It's gone. No way to bring it back as it was. Roku made a blog post about its replacement. They are planning on putting live news in the Roku Channel long term. There's an AOL news channel which basically is the same source as the News menu item.

Re: Save Hulu registration

You need to know your Hulu username and password to register a new device to Hulu. There's no way to retrieve that from a Roku.

Re: Newbie, PLEASE help

On the Roku app I can watch what's on on my tablet but can't watch my channels. Don't understand that?  Roku app was designed to be a Remote Control app initially, they added video player for local content on phone so you could cast it onto the Roku. Also, most of the apps that Roku has usually hav...

Re: Start streaming in HD (versus start in low quality)

Can't do that with Netflix at all on any device. Roku doesn't have anything that will control this for any other app.

Re: No casting options from Android

Google Pixel only supports Chromecast, doesn't support Miracast. Has been that way since Nexus 6 models of Google devices. Roku only does Miracast, doesn't support Chromecast at all. Suggest a Chromecast device. Nvidia Shield does do Chromecast, but it's expensive and I find to be buggier with Strea...

Re: Can't Access Development Mode

If you are side-loading unauthorized channels, then they will disable your Developer Mode on the Rokus. It's actually part of the Developer Agreement that you have to sign up for a developer account to access the Developer Mode on the Roku. It's to prevent usage of unauthorized channels that allow ...

Re: Turning off TV and Roku

I’m new to this forum and joined because I want to buy a Roku Ultra but want to be sure I get the 2018 model. Nevertheless it seems as though everywhere I look they’re selling the 2017. How can I be sure to get the 2018?  There is no 2018 model, yet. Latest model came out in 2017 before the Holiday...

Re: Is there any way I can still get the locals through the ROKU?

A. Roku XD is a really, really old model (even the Roku 2 XD is), so don't get it. Roku XD is no longer supported, Roku 2 XD is slow as heck and some channels don't work on it.  B. There's no real way to get Local TV other than through Antenna or a Cable/Satellite Provider. CBS All Access has an opt...

Re: Last Straw - I've had it with Roku

I guess Roku is getting rid of channels early using the older code or duplicate channels?

Actually, I found that I had to log off and back in the other day when trying to add a Private Channel. Try that.

But this is a greater problem for private channels that can't even be found via channel search on roku, e.g.  PORNHUB !!!

Re: 3800 stick and hevc

No, it does not work. I believe only 4K models of Rokus support HEVC. The 3810 (Roku Streaming Stick Plus) would.
