Re: 'Silent' AC3 5.1 on some channels

Model of the Soundbar would be helpful. Likely there's no Dolby Digital Plus decoding capabilities on the Soundbar.

Re: Is this possible?

You need to purchase the Digital Copy on one of the Movies Anywhere eligible sites, like Amazon, Vudu, Google, or iTunes. Disney does not have a Physical to Digital program to give you a discount for that process. You would have been better to get the BluRay from a Retailer with a code to claim on M...

Re: Airtv intergration with Sling app

I recently purchased the black airtv player. It's pretty amazing. I can get locals when I'm away from my home. Also the local channels integrate in my normal slingtv guide - but only on my phone. It also integrates into the guide on a fire stick (which I don't have). It's supposed to be coming to r...

So is community support the best (only) way to get support for a Roku device?

For general questions such as this, the Forums a good place. But for actual issues like something being broken, Roku's support via chat or phone is the best place to start.

Re: Stick and private listening

Definitely doesn't work on Roku 3. I have one and I don't get the Private Listening option. My Roku Stick (3600) does and is the only model I own that does. Roku Stick 3500 will not work, I have one of those, too, don't get the option..

I subscribe to Cinemax and HBO through Fios.  I have HBO Go but no MaxGo.  Does that make any sense?  When is it going to arrive?

Ask the company who owns the MaxGo (I think it's HBO still). They would have to develop an app for Roku.

Re: Guess HBO GO loves to deactivate every week or two

Talk to your TV provider about their timeout settings. Same as you get logging into websites and checking the "remember me" button. Has nothing to do with the Roku itself. Mine stays activated much longer. Same model as OP.

Re: The Roku interface's resolution on my TCL S405 (4K) TV is not 4K

I know the Roku set top boxes that are 4k models have 1080p UI upscaled, assume the TVs are the same. My Roku 3 is 720p UI upscaled to 1080p.

Re: Will I lose any channels by upgrading from Roku 2 (4210) to the latest model?

It's really time for upgrade. Only one concern: will I lose any of the channels by upgrading? I have a few private channels, and I'm wondering if they could be legacy channels that only work on older models. (Conversely, my Roku 2 is too old to install a few new channels.) Shouldn't. Regardless old...

Re: laptop and roku same time

Sounds like a problem with your router or a bandwidth issue. Shouldn't be an issue with the PC or Roku themselves.

Re: External HDD (cloud) with Roku Premier Plus

Hi Trekeriii, I think I responded to your suggestion, however since I cannot see my response on this board, I am going to repose my response here. My external HDD is plugged in to the back of my internet router's USB port. My ISP is Rogers and the modem router they provided me is a Hitron. I am abl...

Re: External HDD (cloud) with Roku Premier Plus

Your Router needs to have DLNA server on it. If not, then you need to use another PC to setup a DLNA or Plex Server on your home network, and connect the HDD to it, be it via USB on the PC or Network mapping the HDD to the PC and having DLNA or Plex read from that. Highly recommend Plex, so you can ...

Re: Thumbnail icons disappeared in most channels

You got an SD card in your Roku? Remove it and see if that fixes the problem after a reboot.

Re: One Roku two tv’s

For the Price of a decent HDMI splitter, you'd be better off paying for another Roku. Plus, less wires.
