Re: DD+ on PS3 but not on Roku

DD+ works great with Netflix and VUDU on Roku 2. It took some fiddling with high speed cables and resetting the interfaces between the Roku and my AVR. I think I also upgraded my AVR firmware along the way.

It's probably not your Roku that's keeping you from getting DD+.

Re: Live News Options

Get an antenna and hook it up to your existing TV. Unless it's an old TV, the receiver should be able to get the local broadcast digital TV. Lots of news and promotional videos are available OTA and free.

Re: Thoughts on Aereo

I didn't see any channels I couldn't already get OTA. In fact, OTA has more channels than Aereo, MHz for example. Although, MHz has a Roku channel IIRC but MHz OTA has a lot more foreign channels than the roku streaming one.

Re: roku android app not working...

The upgrade won't log into my acct either. Luckily, I found my remote so I'm no longer dependent on the app.

Re: Roku enabled whole house audio

Sonos would be a better solution, but not a cheap solution.

Re: Roku and Netflix

Netflix has lots of movies on DVD or Bluray that aren't available on streaming. The listing on your PC includes those movies as well. Do you have access to both services?

If it can be streamed, you should be able to see it either on your PC or on your Roku.

Re: Roku 2- Netflix vs VUDU (Conflicts)

Delete both channels then reinstall Netflix first. You may have to do a factory reset first which means you'll reinstall your channels.

Can you get the DD+ audio that comes with Netflix and VUDU?

Re: Roku DD plus poor sound

Although DD+ uses different encoding, the highest data rates for DD+ are much higher than for DD. The first thing to try is a higher data rate HDMI cable. You should also try completely resetting the power to both sides of the HDMI interface. Remove every source of power to both the AVR and Roku. No...

Netflix and Crackle have new versions today but in the Channel Store it says that the current version of VUDU is 1.2, released on 9-25-12.


I've got VUDU version 1.2 build 7

Re: Amazon Prime- worth it?- feedback

Prime is worth it for us because we use all three features - we like the free movies/tv, my wife downloads the free books all the time, and I like the two day shipping.

Re: 5.1 surround suddenly inoperative on Netflix and Vudu

I got sporadic performance from DD+ on Netflix and Vudu until I did a factory reset and channel reinstall. Now both work great. AFAIK, Netflix and Vudu are the only ones broadcasting DD+ but I can't vouch for every channel that might be out there. All the other channels I use are either stereo or DD...
