Re: Unsupported Audio messages

HDXR is a rather old model, no new firmware nor channels being added, some being dropped. I know they had issues with the power supply going bad, replace the power supply, you might breath new life into that device. Assuming you have the HD from the same year, recommend you upgrade to newer models.

Re: Can "Wi-Fi Direct" be turned off?

I'm trying to find the right Roku model for me, but I've learned that many of the remotes have direct Wi-Fi connection to the unit! I would not use this! Scientific research on radio wave radiation is concerning at best, and I'm not going to play Russian Roulette with my health just for the sake of...

Best to connect it to the Amp to get the full benefits of Surround Sound.

Re: Hulu Live local channels are not local to my area

I unplugged the modem, router and Roku. Left them off for about 10 minutes then plugged in the modem first, waited a couple of minutes, then plugged in the router, waited again for several minutes then plugged the Roku back in. Unfortunately it didn't work. Still getting KC local channels. Guess it...

Re: RT aka Russia Today - Putin's Personal Propaganda Mouthpiece

Roku is not a partner. RT merely made a Roku Channel and followed developer rules. Just like NRA TV and all the religious channels which people have also accused of Roku supporting. Roku is a box with an OS.  Don't want to watch it, don't install the channel. I think Fox News is a GOP propaganda mac...

Re: MLB channel disappeared

Could be MLB decided to only allow in the USA Channel Store, which is MLB's call. RokuShawns is trying to hint he can't comment and to contact MLB for verification. Channel Developers make the choice to publish their apps in various regions. Roku just merely provides the checkboxes for those options...

Re: Any remote that you can change channels on using the keypad instead of up and down?

Roku doesn't have this functionality, yet. I know people want it for all the new Cable Services, but hasn't been implemented, yet. Basically, you need to use the guide functions on the various services rather than using a channel number.

Re: ViewLocal... How to DVR?

We are using the ViewLocal app and it is working well. We also use SlingTV Orange & Blue. SlingTV has a cloud DVR option, but only for its channels. Does anyone know how to DVR stations on ViewLocal? Cloud or hardware, I will appreciate your tips. Thanks! That would be something ViewLocal would...

Re: Eurosport player

You can't. I think the special players that are Roku hardware have the channels actually integrated into their firmware. Roku has pretty much discontinued the side-loading feature as well.

Re: Difference between 3400X, 3400M and 3400R?

I wouldn't get the 3400 stick. Get the newer models. I got my parents the Streaming Stick Plus, works great for them.

Re: missing channel

There's no general save list, so if you don't know what channel you were in when you saved it, then you won't find it. Each channel that has queues, is separate from one another.

Re: Roku continues to support the NRA

As a progressive, I am not a fan of the NRA as it's become. It's a gun manufacture lobbyist group that bribes politicians to sell more guns. I think the whole lobbyist (just a fancy way of bribing) needs to go away, hence why more non-career progressives are running to get money out of politics. Tru...
