Re: Amazon and Apple go 4K, Roku still peddling the Roku 3 as the top of the range streaming device (UK/EU)

The Fire TV has been removed from sale, no idea why, its far faster than the Fire Stick, must be a price thing as it costs twice as much, a much better experience. I recently setup a fire stick for my niece, and it seemed very slow compared to my Fire TV.

Re: Roku Offering Its Own Ad-Supported TV/Movie Channel

I suppose it would be pretty stupid to say UK Version?

Re: Is Roku pulling out of the UK?

I got a Fire Tv and its wonderful, all the apps are fast and easy, not like my Roku 3 which needs a reboot to keep channels working or I get the 'cant run due to insufficient storage' error. I sideloaded Kodi, so all my needs are met. Haven't used the Roku for a month. Shame it was great when I firs...

Re: Roku 2 Can't See my wired internet(PROBLEM SOLVED)

There may have been a broken wire in the cable, and if you shortened it, you may have cut the broken part out.

No, either in Forum posts or PM's

I guess they've been told to keep tight lipped..

Re: Is Roku pulling out of the UK?

Whilst this is interesting news, I can't justify an investment of a three figure sum for a grey market import that may not work with basic services going forward. Even if it works for now. It would be nice to hear from Roku themselves if they have an issue with Sky forcing them to pull out of the U...

Re: remote channel shortcut buttons

My Roku 3 in the Uk has no special buttons on it, just how I like it.

Re: Is Roku pulling out of the UK?

I've thought this for a while... I'm thinking of getting an Amazon fire TV.
I think Rupert Murdoch (who has a lot of shares in Roku) is blocking any new models being released in the UK as they will compete with Sky.

Re: Channels "could not be reinstalled from the network"?

I spoke too soon, its doing it again... a reboot cured it, but its going to need a reboot every couple of days :-( I wonder if the Roku's internal storage is wearing out? Its 3 or 4 years old. It was fine before the 7.6 update, how about you guys, when did it start doing this with regards to the las...

Re: Channels "could not be reinstalled from the network"?

Ok, I swapped the 4gb card that's been in since I got the Roku 3 for a 2gb one. All seems ok now, I reformatted the 4gb and put it back in and all the errors came back. It seems the card is corrupt, although no errors were generated on formatting to fat32 or the Roku's own formatting function. What ...
