Re: My Roku is talking

I accidentally turned it on last night. If you press the * key 4 times, that will toggle it on or off. Yes that's the shortcut sequence for enabling/disable the audio accessibility option. That shortcut can be disabled under the accessibility menu option, then it won't turn on by accident again! Th...

Re: [Official] 2018 Fall Launch - Roku Ultra + JBL Headphones Feedback

I did not read all 4 pages  but my guess is that this complaint has been echoed,  the Roku Ultra needs some type of audio out whether spdif, 3.5mm (other than on the remote )  or bluetooth.  Granted Fire TV removed the jacks in gen 2 but at least there devices support Bluetooth I completely concur....

Re: Use micro SD Card from Roku 2 XS to new Roku Ultra?

Just bought new Roku Ultra to replace old Roku 2 XS.  Can I use the micro SD card from the old Roku 2 XS in my new Roku Ultra?  Is it just remove and install, or do I have to do something to the card before inserting it? Also, what is the purpose of the micro SD in the new Roku Ultra?  Do I really ...

Re: Cord-cutters be advised:

I don't think that there is a way to control your Roku settings so that Roku ONLY displays channels that are completely free, with no outside subscription or fees required. That said, many channels on Roku offer a combo of "free" and subscriber programming.

Re: [Official] 2018 Fall Launch - Roku Ultra + JBL Headphones Feedback

A number of years ago, I bought a Sony Blu-ray player, a BDP-BX59. This was the exact same Blu-ray player, as the S590, with only difference being, that the BDP-BX59 came with an HDMI cable, and the S590, was the same player, but without the cable. When I went to look for reviews and information on ...

YouTube Channel now allows to save to folders

If this option was always there, I never found it until today...
I see now that I can save a video I'm watching to one of the YouTube folders I have created, within the YouTube Roku channel.

Battery Level Display - How to get the display to appear

I am already aware that I can get the battery level % anytime through Settings. But what I'm interested in viewing, at will, is the color coded battery level that pops up occasionally in the the upper right corner. Is there an easy way to manually make that color coded battery level display appear ?

Re: YouTube channel — doesn't support Resume Play?

To get more YouTube features, when watching on my big screen TV, I avoid using the YouTube Roku Channel, and instead cast YouTube from my smartphone to the big screen TV, through the general Roku casting option. But, keep in mind, I am **not** using the casting app **within** You Tube app on my smar...

Re: Why I use an HDMI Extender with my 3600R

The reason I am using an HDMI extender is that I had my Roku 3600R plugged in the back of my Sony Receiver. It was plugged into the HDMI port that was next to the HDMI port that was used to send all HDMI to the TV. The problem was that the 3600 was making contact with the HDMI cable next to it. The ...

Re: To watch NBC do I need a cable TV provider?

Thanks. Then I need to figure out how to get my NBC affiliate either on an antenna or with a minimum cable package. Thanks so much. There are various websites for cord cutters and otherwise that can give you advice on antennas, placement of antennas, and amplifiers for antennas. A little Google sea...

Re: Dolby Digital Plus Audio Issue

My Roku streaming stick is plugged into the receiver, which has the "pass-though" system, to allow audio and video to pass through the receiver to the TV (by way of the HDMI cable), without the receiver being on. I ran across this issue tonight. Without my receiver on, I began streaming &q...
