Ok, thanks, it's a mystery to me what happened to my post or your response, but thanks for the thoughts here, and for the extra effort to re-post.

I vaguely recall posting a question about the desire for the content of an atheist channel.  But I don't see my post either.

Re: First 4K TV

For some reason, my 5 GHz wireless is slower than hard wired, so I don't bother with it. I was going to tell you that wireless data rates can't get as high as wired ethernet, but I was surprised to read that the 5GHz data rate could theoretically get as high as 1.73 Gbps.  Holy cow.  However, my ex...

Re: You Tube

I don't know what "sideloading the better youtube channel" means.   I watch the YouTube app on my Roku occasionally and I think it's a poorly written app.  If I just let it play, it usually works, but if I try to pause or replay something, it usually crashes my Roku.  There's also a long d...

Re: First 4K TV

When you switched from 1080P to 4K, did you notice a big improvement?  I haven't switched and I'm skeptical.

Roku Channel / Beverly Hillbillies

I thoroughly enjoyed watching " The Beverly Hillbillies " back in the '60s, but I don't remember ever seeing reruns on TV in the decades since.  Odd, I thought.  Why not? Well now they're on the Roku Channel and I finally get to enjoy them again (well, kind of enjoy them--they're not quite...

Does "My Feed" ever show when available for free?

I frequently click on the link to follow a movie when I've searched for it and found it not available.  My hope is that one of the channels will pick it up in the future so I can watch it for free (or for the monthly price I'm already paying).  But after several years, the "My Feed" page h...

Re: Got blocked by @RokuPlayer

I'm shocked by two things.

One, the lack of sympathy for someone that wants to continue to use his Roku with a CRT TV.  Sure it's old, but if it satisfies, why discard it?

Two, I'm really shocked that any company would use Twitter for service requests.

My 2 XS, however, is worthless for YouTube.

My 2 XS usually plays YouTube acceptably if I just let it play.
But when I forget I'm watching it on Roku and press rewind, even for a few seconds, the Roku isn't just sluggish, it CRASHES.  Every time.

Re: Amazon interface started bad and is getting worse

OK, thanks for the info on the new interface.  It's even worse than the one I have, so it's not a solution. But I can't find any indication that Amazon is aware of their customers' dissatisfaction or that they're working on it.  I posted a complaint on the Amazon Prime Forum , but there's no indicat...

Amazon interface started bad and is getting worse

I logged in here to vent about Amazon's interface and ask if others have the same experience or know of solutions.  But Now I see there's a thread started in October about Amazon's "Newly Designed Amazon Video Channel".  Huh?  I haven't heard about it.  How can I get it? But back to the ex...

Re: ESPN and NFL Viewers are Leaving in Big Numbers

I cut the cable.  No set-top-box.  No cable/FiOS/dish TV.  Only Roku. Sometimes I can tune in a Sunday NFL game on my old TV on a local channel via my antenna. And I guess I could pay the big bucks to watch on my Roku. But how can I just watch the local game on my Roku without paying a huge fee? Tha...

Re: Any way to get FoxNews?

have you tried channelpear ? Never heard of it, but a channel PEAR help article says channel PEAR is not intended to replace your cable subscription and should not be used as such. channel PEAR is not a cable, satellite, IPTV, or OTA provider. That's what I would be doing. I want to stream FoxNews ...

Any way to get FoxNews?

I love my Roku device, especially with Netflix, so much that I switched to local channels only on FiOS and I almost never watch any of them. (Verizon would charge me more if I ditched the set-top box altogether.) But the one thing I really miss from cable (or FiOS basic package) is Fox News. I haven...
