Re: No casting options from Android

Google Pixel only supports Chromecast, doesn't support Miracast. Has been that way since Nexus 6 models of Google devices. Roku only does Miracast, doesn't support Chromecast at all. Suggest a Chromecast device. Nvidia Shield does do Chromecast, but it's expensive and I find to be buggier with Strea...

Re: Can't Access Development Mode

If you are side-loading unauthorized channels, then they will disable your Developer Mode on the Rokus. It's actually part of the Developer Agreement that you have to sign up for a developer account to access the Developer Mode on the Roku. It's to prevent usage of unauthorized channels that allow ...

Re: Turning off TV and Roku

I’m new to this forum and joined because I want to buy a Roku Ultra but want to be sure I get the 2018 model. Nevertheless it seems as though everywhere I look they’re selling the 2017. How can I be sure to get the 2018?  There is no 2018 model, yet. Latest model came out in 2017 before the Holiday...

Re: Is there any way I can still get the locals through the ROKU?

A. Roku XD is a really, really old model (even the Roku 2 XD is), so don't get it. Roku XD is no longer supported, Roku 2 XD is slow as heck and some channels don't work on it.  B. There's no real way to get Local TV other than through Antenna or a Cable/Satellite Provider. CBS All Access has an opt...

Re: Last Straw - I've had it with Roku

I guess Roku is getting rid of channels early using the older code or duplicate channels?

Re: Can't add channels through Roku website

Actually, I found that I had to log off and back in the other day when trying to add a Private Channel. Try that.

But this is a greater problem for private channels that can't even be found via channel search on roku, e.g.  PORNHUB !!!

Re: 3800 stick and hevc

No, it does not work. I believe only 4K models of Rokus support HEVC. The 3810 (Roku Streaming Stick Plus) would.

Re: hi guy,i have a question,please help me!

XD and XD|S are pretty much dead models. Don't get either of those. Get a Roku Express+ if you need RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow).  Pretty much the only product that support Mirroring of Apple Macs, iPhones, and iPads are Apple TVs. There is no Connect360 for Roku. There is: https://www.airbeam.tv/m...

Re: Roku Netflix SuperHD

The newer Netflix app does not display the "Super HD" icon anymore. There's a way to check the Bitrate and Resolution using the * key. I think if you pause the video then hit the *, it will bring up the bitrate in the upper left.

Re: decades channel

Yeah, it's only available via cable or using an Antenna. The only network I know of similar to these that has a Roku Channel is Comet, which is a Sci-Fi classic channel.

Re: Help Mirroring.

To the OP. The PCs you mention, if they are wired, won't work. Has nothing to do with your Router Settings. Mirroring on Roku is a direct connection via Wi-Fi from the WI-Fi device on the Computer to the Wi-Fi on the Roku, doesn't touch the router at all. Kinda like Bluetooth. So, won't work. Miraca...
