Re: Put.io native streaming

Thanks man, I figured it out. I have never dabbled into using cloud to stream torrents. I figured it out. I found several really good torrent websites and was able to download all of The Walking Dead Season 3 on my put.io account online, and once it was transferred over I simply went into my puke.io...

Re: Put.io native streaming

I just joined and am getting the same thing. After linking my account on my Roku 2 XS unit, all I see is "Settings." When I click on that option, "unlink." I was under the impression that I would see the nice A-Z list of shows to add to my queue. Unfortunately, the Nok Nok channe...

Re: Wireless Router Recommendations?

Interesting. My router seemed to be doing well for awhile, but now I have a new culprit--sudden disconnects from the router. This happens to both my Roku boxes and the laptop. When I checked my router settings, nothing was showing up as attached. It's like a total dropoff. And this happens two or th...

Re: Question for BabyFirst TV - Roku Users

My wife and I just got rid of DirecTV last week. Our 2.5 year old son LOVES Baby First TV. Luckily, I have found many of the shows, such as Numbers Around The Globe, Harry The Bunny (Aidrick's favorite), Tillie Knock-Knock, and a couple of other shows that combine many of the other shows together in...

Re: Wireless Router Recommendations?

That's funny you mentioned an issue with the remote controls, as I have had to reset my remote twice on the upstairs box. At one point, I had to pull up the Roku app on my Android smartphone just to get something on so that my 2 year old would sit still. Nice to have that as a backup! I think at thi...

Re: Wireless Router Recommendations?

The distance is roughly about 20 feet between my router and the Roku box downstairs. I did a little research on repeaters, but don't know too much about them. It's kind of strange that the box that is closer to the router is very slow in retrieving data compared to the one upstairs. Although the one...

Re: Wireless Router Recommendations?

UPDATE: I downloaded the 148 page manual for my Netgear router last night, and spent the better part of an hour going through the entire thing. I found some helpful tips, which involved adding the MAC IDs for both Roku boxes and giving them highest priority of internet traffic. I also added them und...

Re: Wireless Router Recommendations?

It's definitely driving me crazy, let alone my wife, trying to get these Roku boxes to stream properly. At this point, I strongly believe that my Netgear dual band router that I bought refurbished about 1.5 years ago is not able to handle all of the HD streaming video requests. I believe it is going...

Re: Wireless Router Recommendations?

I've heard the term bridging being thrown around when researching routers and media connectors online, but I am not very familiar with how that works. I did all of my own wi fi and router installation, so it won't be a problem figuring out how to do it. I do have a cable line that extends out from a...

Re: Wireless Router Recommendations?

Rick, I will try some of the other tweaks that you mentioned. I have done a couple of them already, but several of the others that you mentioned have not been tried yet. Hopefully that will help. As you can imagine, it is pretty frustrating to be getting over 100% signal strength and still have long...

Wireless Router Recommendations?

I am new to this whole Roku thing. I love the technology, I think it's fantastic--when it works effectively. Which brings me to my current problem. I purchased two Roku XS boxes a couple of weeks ago, and have both of them hooked up (one via HDMI to a 42" HDTV and one to an old-school TV in my ...
