Re: The Reason Roku Does Not Support Lossless Audio Playback

We should now be able to pass through the 7.1 channels encoded in DTS HD-Master, as of the OS 9.0+ release. Wow, really? Checking this out. Pretty much the only reason why I use the Nvidia Shield. Might want to give a heads up to Plex about this. Edit: Well, sure enough. I started a 4K movie with D...

Re: Volume Control with Roku 3 in 2019?

Your TV might not have CEC built into it. Roku 3 remotes used CEC through HDMI to send the volume and power-on commands to Roku 3. Also, CEC is not 100% between two different branded devices.

Re: Roku Ultra and Roku 3 major connection issues

I heard on the internet and via friends on Facebook CenturyLink had some major internet issues over the holidays. I don't know if they have fully resolved the issue or not. Could be there's some problems still.

Re: ROKU Ruined Plex - URGENT ROLLBACK REQUIRED

Also, Plex has been changing the apps on all Platforms. My LG got the change first, then the PS4. Android got one, too. Plex delayed the Roku's app changing a bit because they had to rebuild it to accommodate the new API.  Also, if you installed Plex and started using the Roku Channel store, you act...

Re: BBC America

I can replicate the issue with BBC America. I use Philo. AMC works fine. NBC works ok. I am not in an area where ABC has live streaming, supposed to not be in very many areas, yet.

Re: Adjusting monitor display when Mirroring

Set the resolution to 1280 x 720. You could do extended display instead of Duplicate if you want to have 1080p on the PC and 720p on the TV, but it would would be more like a dual screen monitor setup.

Re: 3800 Remote control

I think the TV control is actually via IR if you are using the On/Off button. The actual communication to the Roku itself is Wi-Fi Direct. There's a direct connection between the Remote and the Roku, doesn't connect to your Wi-Fi Router at all.

Re: Need one Roku remote for two co-located TVs

I would get something that splits the HDMI signal rather than getting two Rokus. You won't get any functionality of syncing Rokus completely together in this way. Keep in mind that some apps won't allow more than 1 stream at a time simultaneously. You're not going to find too many options to do what...

Re: Streaming Stick 3800 - mpeg 2 support

Bump again. Nothing Roku? Half baked role out? The 3800 processor support h262 decode at HD resolutions. Getting it to work should be a trivial task.  Roku does not comment on fixes or timelines. It is likely it will be worked on and potential fix released whenever they do the next firmware rollout...

Re: Speed

Nope, no bandwidth caps. Likely a difference in the Routes the data is taking. Nothing you can do on your end to improve it.

Re: VPN not working with Roku app

That's to be expected anyways, just FYI. Your phone basically is on another network when on VPN, that's what it's designed for. Just in case someone is using a Work-related VPN application.

Re: Episode in a series will not play

Be helpful to know what model Roku you have that is having the problem and specific series and episode this is happening on. That way people can attempt to try it on their devices if they have the same one. Could be a bad encode that certain models don't play and Shout Factory needs to fix.
