Re: Need "how-to" info for changing widi device channels

No, you cannot change the channel per device. The router is what controls the channel in use, and each band 2.4 or 5 GHz) only supports single channel. Ignore that some 5 GHz devices might use multiple channels at the same time, but they are all bonded together and all connected devices use the same...

Re: How to Stop Constant Ads and Closed Captions

I agree that it's annoying. I just never got around to adding a PIN to my player. My primary streamer is now the Shield, so the Roku doesn't get used as much.

Re: Ultimate Remote Batteries Dying Quickly

Actually the 4630 is the older version of the Premiere+, not the Ultra. So it's several years old now. Maybe not since you bought it, but since it was released.

Re: How to Stop Constant Ads and Closed Captions

If you don't want ads, then subscribe to Netflix, Amazon Prime, or one of the other premium services. For the price you pay, you don't get ads. Although Amazon sneaks one in occasionally before your selection begins, but it's only for one of their own productions. And as noted, no channel is ever in...

Re: Slingplayer suddenly broken?

 Does each of your gadgets have different software, updated at different times?  Very possible. They roll out firmware updates gradually, and even the same model Roku could have two different firmware versions. Also, different models could have slight differences in their firmware, so that might be...

Re: Roku Express Volume Too Low

Roku has no control over the volume. It's solely controlled by either the TV you are connected to, or a soundbar or receiver. Now it's certainly possible there's something defective with your Roku. But first I would try using it on a different device and see if the sound is still too low.

Re: Best usb media player app

Hey RokuDale! Playing video files from USB. What is the purpose of the big word bubbles that pop up under any item you have selected? Is there a way to stuff content into there? It looks like it just replicates the filename twice. Can we customize that? I've tried obvious things like VideoName.txt ...

Re: Using Roku 4K remote to turn off bose soundbar

That isn't an accurate enough description of your remote. My Ultra is 4K, but it's older and doesn't have a power button or IR support for other devices. Newer remotes have one or both. If your remote has a power button and support controlling other devices with IR, there should be a code that works...

Re: Amazon Prime live streams not working

I have now contacted Amazon and they told me the Prime app is not updated within Roku and that's why I can't play the live streams -- that Roku has to update the Prime app. They told you wrong. Roku doesn't update the app, Amazon does. Roku only creates and supports a small number of apps (Roku Cha...

Re: Continue Watching - Turn off "Press OK to Continue" prompt.

Hi all sorry I'm 6 years late to this thread, I would just like to add that while using my PS4 I do not get any prompts asking me if I'm still there... However if I was to go on Netflix via the Roku I get a prompt if I'm still watching. It's just Roku collecting information who is active and who is...

Re: roksbox -Streaming Local Media Channel Available for Testing

If it is that important for you to do it, buy a domain and try using Let's Encrypt.  However, keep in mind that Roku does not use your local DNS server and probably will confirm the name in the URL matches the name in the CN or SAN field of the certificate.  So you will have to publish a DNS entry ...

Re: TCL 4K Roku TV Local Dolby Vision Playback Issues

You can't rip Dolby Vision media and retain the DV metadata, unfortunately. Rippers such as MakeMKV can't handle it as yet. I don't know if it's a licensing issue. I have seen posts on forums that mention some special way to do it, but it was very complicated. You might try using Handbrake to redo t...

Re: Roku won't work with CenturyLink router

I turned the WiFi off in my Actiontec long ago. I have major heat issues with them, so it eases the load by removing that source of heat. Instead I have a router configured as a Wireless Access Point inside my home. This not only removes any issue with the Actiontec (which I think is a miserable pie...

Re: Roku remote HTS volume

If your Samsung supports CEC, then it should be possible. There's a setting in the Roku menu for controlling other devices that enables CEC. I can control the volume of my Yamaha AVR with the Ultra remote.
