Re: Pluto TV Buffering

I just noticed both your replies. My Pluto channel has been fine for quite a while. Whatever problem I had back then fixed itself. Roku Ultra.

Megacast DOA

I just added the channel Megacast from the "recently added" menu on my ROKU Ultra. Then I tried to add the Megacast Premium to my Android phone. There were many apps in Google Play store but none called exactly "Megacast Premium". When I pulled up the channel on my ROKU it has a ...

Re: Roku, please allow the power button to send the home comand to the Roku so it stops streaming

Newer Rokus with the enhanced remote certainly do have a power button.

I was not aware of that. I have a ROKU Ultra which is fairly new; just a home button. When I'm done watching I hit the Home button and turn off the TV.

Re: Roku, please allow the power button to send the home comand to the Roku so it stops streaming

My Roku continues to stream after I press the power button on the Roku remote. Roku says it does not put the Roku to sleep. Can this button also send the home comand so the streams stop? This seems like a minor feature request that will help us conserve our data, power, and bandwidth. The Roku remo...

Re: Livestream channel issues

Well, as most of us know, X TV did not last long. They were streaming content they shouldn't have, like ESPN, and ROKU nixed them!

It's a shame because for what I used it for, watching my local news, it worked fine. But I was surfing and stumbled across ESPN and knew it wasn't gonna last long!

Re: Livestream Channel

Vnazario,

I've been using Livestream for 3 years now, watching my local news, WAVY in Norfolk,VA.

You have to search for it as it is not on the home page. Just recently I click on the WAVY icon and it loads and loads and never comes up.

Not sure what's going on at Livestream.

Re: Pluto TV Buffering

Surprised there wasn't a response to this. My Pluto channel has been useless for a week now. Just buffers constantly. I have the newest Roku Ultra.

Please tell me I'm not the only one having a problem watching Pluto.

Remote "bonk" sound gone after latest update

I did a search for this but found nothing.

After the latest firmware update, the sound when you hit the home button is gone. I have gone through all the settings and couldn't find any setting that addresses this. Anybody else missing their "Bonk" sound? I have the newest Roku Ultra.

Re: Livestream channel issues

There is now another Roku channel that does the same thing as LS and NewsOn, but in my opinion, better. It's called "X TV". For local news stations, start X TV, click on "Live TV', Then go down 4 rows to "LocalNews/Networks". Then pick a state, the finally pick your station....

Re: Livestream channel issues

John, I too am curious about their business model. How does Livestream make any money? I do use it most mornings to watch my local channel news (WAVY Norfolk, VA). But I have to use the search function every time, it is not on the home page anymore. If LS doesn't work for me, I use NewsOn to watch m...

Re: ONNEWS [that has Ads] WAS one my favorite channels......NOT NOW.........UPDATE: 2 MONTHS LATER

"Leaving the channel on all the time" See, that would not work for me because NewOn will not STAY ON! It often kicks out to black screen when a channel goes to ads. By the way guys, it's NewsOn, not onnews. (Unless I'm thinking of another channel).

Re: ONNEWS [that has Ads] WAS one my favorite channels......NOT NOW

I'm still getting the kickout to blackscreen when an ad starts. Annoying having to re-start the station all the time.

By the way, I just noticed the OP spelled the app "ONNEWS". Unless I'm thinking of a different ROKU app it's called NewsOn.

Re: ONNEWS [that has Ads] WAS one my favorite channels......NOT NOW

Clunky, clunky, clunky, that is my description of the NewsOn interface. I try to watch my local news (WAVY, Norfolk, VA) and it will start and play "OK". When the screen comes on that says: "We will be right back" (WWBRB), it kicks out to black screen and stays there till I resta...
