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.

Re: Single sign-on

The SSO only works with certain channels. I know ESPN, NBC, ABC, and FOX will link. However, Discovery, Animal Planet, Showtime, etc. wlll not. I know it does work, because I will sign into AMC and then ESPN will work, too.

No. Roku Express doesn't even have USB ports (except for the micro port for power).

Re: Roku 4 a good choice?

My Onkyo receiver can handle anything I throw at it, including DD+ and HD-audio formats. If your AVR doesn't have HDMI, then it won't support HD-audio formats. HD formats (DTS HD MA and Dolby TrueHD) are HDMI only (Roku doesn't passthru them anyways, so no need to debate this point). DD+ only works...

Re: Roku Premiere and CBS All Access - no 5.1 sound

Like Netflix and others, not all content is in 5.1. Star Trek Discovery is, looks like even Star Trek TOS is, but the CBS Live feed is not. Older content isn't as well. Late Night tv shows look to be Stereo only. Big Bang Theory I get 5.1

Re: Which current models support IR remote?

Thanks but I don't know what that means.  Any chance you could clarify?  (Model #s would be great since the product names seem to get reused over time with different model numbers with different hardware.) He's saying if it is a "Streaming Stick" branded model, then it doesn't support IR....

Re: decades channel

I wish Decades would listen and provide us with a Roku channel. Haven't heard of a business yet that feels they have too many customers and don't need anymore. I am guessing there might be some issues with local affiliates. Most of the OTA channels have local advertising on them, so somehow they wo...

A Roku TV? No. You would be better to get one of the Roku Streaming Sticks.

Re: Want to watch my favourite shows in Canada!!

You can't get the CW channel in Canada, it is USA only. Apparently those shows are now on the Space channel? I do not know if they make a Roku Channel or not. You would have to search your channel store.

Re: Question regarding wifi remote and leased IP

The remote does not connect to your Wi-FI at all. It uses Wi-Fi direct and connects directly to the Roku. It could possibly be the Router changing channels is the issue, Roku only has one radio, so the frequency for the Wi-Fi direct and Wi-Fi channel on your router would be identical. I find it best...

Re: Hulu comes back. Why?

Likely someone is re-adding it. Do you have other Rokus on the account? Could be your are removing it, then someone is putting it back on another Roku associated with the account.

Re: Roku Ultra and Plex Buffering

Honestly, I can say I see more buffering on transcoded items (either a low quality video or a 4k video) on my Roku Ultra 4660. This is locally streamed items and I have my Roku Ultra wired. This is on both the Plex and Plex beta channels. I did on the beta channel change the transcode format to MKV ...

Re: Won't connect to 5g

Express models won't see 5G. Only 2.4. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roku#Roku_Streaming_Players

Only the "Dual-band" models listed will see the 5G,
