No dancing letters, just a black, blank screen. Thanks.

I may have missed it, but I don’t see that you tried a different HDMI port on that TV.

Re: Express keeps going to home screen

Most of the comments I read were from 2018.... It's now August 2019 and I'm still having these issues.  Any number of apps exit mid stream, or at a commercial.  Hulu,  ESPN+, xfinity, etc etc etc. Still no real solution for this? Why did I bother getting this if I can't actually use it? I think I'm...

Re: Roku is no longer a neutral platform after today’s Roku OS 9.1 update

Wait. What? Roku is promoting the Roku Channel? This is unprecedented!

What's next? Amazon Fire devices emphasizing Amazon Prime Video content? Apple TV promoting iTunes content? Chomecast promoting Google Play content? 

I am shocked. And stunned.

Re: Roku not playing EAC 5.1 audio

I guess it was the newer one which removes the good features. Firestick will be here tomorrow. I''ll search for the 4660 version and check that too. The 4660 a...

Re: Roku 2 - Credentials for DLNA server

... Its a Roku 4205X1. ... ... I can't find any Roku with that model number. There is the 4200 (Roku 3), 4210 (Roku 2) and 4230 (Roku 3).  The EU version has that model number. If you recall, the updated Roku 2 is simply a Roku 3 but with an IR remote in the box (though it does work with the WiFi D...

Re: Dear Roku...

Hey Roku... We understand and appreciate that you are working on the issue. But do you  understand and appreciate how frustrated we are with all of this spam? Promises that things "are happening" and solutions are "in the works" are in and of themselves good. However, the entire ...

The good news is, once about three or four users are removed, a couple of thousand of the weekend spam posts will go away.

Re: Disappointing Stick

I believe the problem is within the directvnow app within the Roku Stik.  I just did a side by side comparison with Amazon Firestick and Roku Stik.  The Roku Stik only buffers on directv now app and no others.  The Amazon firestick never buffers at all.  There is some kind of glitch within the dire...

Re: Need Roku information

I seen that another member had replied to my question about being able to,convert roku. But whats your opinion? If there was a converter that took ethernet cable that's coming out of modem and turned it into HDMI cable that would go in back,of roku. Doing that would get the net that i need to roku ...

Re: I have nothing but problems using Sling on my Express

I have my Express right next to my router and I constantly have problems watching sling. I get disconnection messages and problems loading channels. Is there something I can do to fix this? One thing to try is to change the channel your WiFi is using. It's likely using 6, 11, or 1. Try changing to ...
