Re: How to mirror a wired network computer

Is there any other program I can use that does the same thing but not using wifi (maybe using the hard wired network)? The computer (even if I added a wifi adapter) is at one end of the house and the Roku about 60 ft away at the other end ... wifi would be limited at best (and most likely none) ......

Re: How to mirror a wired network computer

Miracast Mirroring works only via Wi-Fi Direct (WiDi), so Wireless is required. Does not go through your Router at all, it is a direct connection from the PC to the Roku via Wi-Fi. Also, requires Windows 8 or above.

Re: Overseas: no Channel search, no adding via web

Overseas two functions don't work: 1. Search of channel store. You have to browse through it. At least it could be displayed alphabetically. Why is search disabled? 2. You can't add via the web. You can search the store, so if you could add it would solve #1. Why is this disabled? Sorry for the com...

Re: CRTV Overseas

Crtv tells me it is available worldwide. Each company blames the other. Frustrating. Well, CRTV is on other devices, but I am guessing not on Roku. CRTV makes that call and is responsible for that setting when Publishing to the Roku Channel Store. I know this because I have to checkmark that option...

Re: Aspect ratio query...

I honestly don't know if this is an Amazon Prime Video forum question or a Roku forum question but I will start here. I occasionally stream Amazon Prime video content through a Roku 1 connected to a 4:3 tv in my office. The display setting on the Roku is set to 4:3 but when I watch 4:3 content it p...

Re: Streaming Stick won't recognize remote app

Make sure Wireless Isolation is not enabled. Sometimes firmware updates will reactivate or activate things you don't expect.

Re: Does Roku Speed Test Channel selection determine server for streaming?

That's normal behavior of Netflix. Been that way since Netflix started using adaptive streaming. Happens on all devices.

Re: Roku Ultra web browser

You can possibly Miracast from a Windows 10 PC or phone, that's about it. Roku itself cannot install Android apps at all. There's nothing you can do to use Roku like a Kodi box or any other box that streams from unauthorized sources. Trek, Thanks for the info.   So next question. What box would I n...

Re: Roku 4210x 8.0 update not available

Yeah I am still not able to get the update either.   I think the ongoing bugs (DTS audio Synch Issue) and the lack of quality updates its time i jump ship.  I think I will end up with a Shield TV.  Argubly more expensive but a better device and it works properly.    Sad really as I really like the ...

Re: Roku 4 Audio Output Dolby Digital Plus via Optical

Roku 4 (4400) doesn't do Dolby Digital Plus decoding to send over optical as Dolby Digital. You want the Roku Ultra (4640) model from 2016 to do that (only Roku Box model that will do that). Roku 4 did have the optical out, but not the DD+ decoding.

Re: No Dolby Digital Plus from Roku Ultra, only PCM

I have the same problem with the 2017 Ultra (4660) where Amazon app is only sending 2CH. The 2017 Ultra does not have an Optical Out, so I am not sure if Roku would convert the DD+ stream to DD on the HDMI out. I get DD from other channels like Vudo. Just need confirmation on the DD+ to DD conversi...
