Re: TCL/ Yamaha Receiver- No sound sometimes

ARC/CEC doesn't always work the way one wants it to. In my family room, I have to power on my Yamaha AVR before turning the TV on, or the TV remote will not control the AVR volume, although I almost always get sound. In my bedroom, again a Yamaha AVR, it always works fine regardless of what is turne...

Re: Amazon prime video couldn't be found in channel store

Roku is blocking nothing. It's up to the channel provider to make their channel available in different geographical areas. Roku does not control that. So the question is, does Amazon make Prime Video available in France? I don't know the answer. Just because it works on a different device doesn't me...

Re: Using Roku at hospitality business

Now there is a "Guest Mode" setting in Roku devices that allows the guest to use their own credentials to sign into subscription services. That would remove any licensing issues for you, and allow them to access whatever they subscribe to. I don't know the details on how it works, but I wo...

Re: Roku vs Chromecast

Hey guys In light of Google new release Stadia seems like its a no brainer in going for a Chromecast now as there is so much potential at your fingertips for only $10 a month. Feel like Roku gonna drop now or is the technology google trying to peddle gonna be a bust? Paying a monthly fee to make so...

Re: Roku vs Chromecast

I would highly you purchase a shield tv. You'd be very happy with that. It does have offline capabilities. It's a great device. And to make this relevant to the OP. It does have Chromecast as well. I use it mostly when I need High quality 4k with lossless DTS and Dolby formats Roku doesn't support....

Re: Roku suddenly stopped working and letters keep bouncing

When you press the reset button to do the hard reset, make sure you hold it for a full 30 seconds. Any less and it's not a complete reset.

lower your bitrate manually

That function doesn't work any more. It was recently removed, and if you read the posts on the thread you linked you would see that it didn't work on adaptive streams anyway. And Amazon uses adaptive streaming.

Re: SHUDDER read before using them

I suggest contacting your credit card issuer and tell them that any additional charges from that company should be denied. They should do that for you.

Re: The Year Long Experiment With Roku Is Now Over: Results & Personal Observations

Nice experiment and excellent write up. As you've found, everyone has different needs and wants for the entertainment. It truly is amazing the amount of free, ad supported media available online with a Roku or Fire TV. While one could easily end up paying more than a cable subscription if you get ca...

Re: USB fails to recognize USB storage device

For DLNA, RMP browses the DLNA database folder structure to locate media. It does not remember this after leaving the dlna server or exiting RMP. It needs to be read again. For USB, RMP now caches much of the meta data, poster art, artist, genre, etc. This can exceed a couple megabytes. If your Rok...

Re: Roku 9.1.0 Build 4111-04 Update on 6 June Causing Multiple Windows Blue Screen Of Death Issues With Plex Media Serve

Obviously I'm partial to Serviio, and use the Roku Media Player (RMP) channel for playback. But Emby is another good one, and as mentioned there are numerous others.

Re: Ethernet connection was giving me 60ish Mbps a week ago now half that.

I have found that the reported speed from either a Roku device itself or any self-testing channel is never very accurate, and always much lower than my Internet available speed. As long as you aren't experiencing any buffering issues, I'd just ignore it. Now if you are encountering buffering, then i...

Don't see any such settings in my Roku TVs, but I don't live somewhere that has weather alerts very often. As in almost never.
