Re: Roku-3 480 mirror Win 10 fails

Yep... Roku mirroring has been like that for many years.  If you want to mirror get a Chromecast.  You can thread after thread of broken mirroring.

Re: Constant Re-Activating channels, ESPN is daily.

I'll just comment Roku has allowed authentication to be a HUGE hassle every time accessing content.  Roku really needs a standard (monthly) authorization that works across all Roku apps and subscription TV services.   I'm not saying it easy to do but an authentication standard for the platform would...

Re: Video/audio interruptions

Maybe I was unclear about the nature of the problem. ISP's don't have access to turn off the entire tv display while having the video play (while the tv is black) causing me to miss content. Huh ? ISP provides network data using TCP/IP protocol.  Your Roku has an embedded operating system based on ...

Re: Video/audio interruptions

That seems like normal behavior for many ISPs as they all tend to over subscribe bandwidth (ie make more money with only minor affect of users performance)  Just enough that you don't disconnect your service).   This is called buffer delay and not data interruption.  Nothing Roku can do other than s...

Re: Can't screen mirror from Windows 10 laptop to Roku Streaming Stick+

Casting to Roku with Windows is complete waste of everyone's time.  If you want to cast or mirror use a Chromecast.

Re: Issue with recent PlayStation Vue Roku Channel update

I think Fire TV would be a better choice now , but Chromecast  I think is the best choice as you can mirror any tab from a PC.  So you can watch any video supported on the PC platform and you are not restricted to only the apps that support the content you want.

Re: YouTube Channel Stopped Working on TCL Roku TV: "Connection Error: Please reconnect to the Internet" Grey Screen

Well the creator of Roku app gets to determine what it supports. This is a huge reason why I will never get a TV with built in Roku.  Also I tend to keep TVs many decades until they don't work and even replace power supplies or use an old VCR when tuner goes bad.  I prefer to use older TVs for retro...

Re: A minor issue

Try a different ...new from the package HDMI cable between your Roku and the TV.  
Most likely the HDMI handshake is intermittently failing due to a poorly made HDMI cable.

Also make sure you have the most recent firmware on your TV and the most recent Roku firmware.

Re: Are there any Browser Channels on Roku ?

The Chromecast app no longer works on my laptop, but does on a smart phone. It looks like the only way you can cast the Chrome app to the TV is via a smart phone or a ChromeBook. It works fine on my old Chromebook I kept as a backup, so I finally have a use for it. Much easier to use than the phone...

Re: ROKU STREAMING ON LINUX

Well Windows has an App so I was curious if there was an app for Linux No though the Roku supports Miracast so you can try the Ubuntu Miracast packages .. but I doubt they will work.   Note: You can use the following remote control web app from Linux.  I actually use it from a very old Blackberry w...

Re: Roku WON'T utilize software update. Keeps restarting.

I really appreciate your quick and honest reply.  It frustrates me because I have loved having my Roku for numerous years now and I find it poor customer service that Roku wouldn't support a faulty model.   I hesitate to ever buy or support a company that wouldn't offer a solution when this softwar...
