Re: Statically assign IP to Roku sticks

It's almost as though Roku aimed for... simplicity... Totally get where people are coming from on this, but as they say -- cheap, easy, highly functional -- pick two.

Re: Statically assign IP to Roku sticks

let's just say so the traffic would be routered differently. Let's say one of the routers goes over VPN to another country.  I believe definition of flat network is a single subnet with no vlans, two routers on the network have nothing to do with it.  If you're a technically inclined person it's pr...

Re: TCL Roku TV's / DD+ issue with Samsung HW-N950

I likewise have this issue on my TCL 6 series TV (SN in signature.) The documentation for the Samsung AVR indicates that it supports DD+, yet I need to select DD or PCM in order to get any sound. No issues when streaming directly to the sound bar using other devices. Please identify and resolve this...

Auto-switch between 5.1 DD/DD+ and Pro-Logic Matrix

I have a question and feature request that is mainly relevant for users with surround sound setups for AVR units. M y AVR supports several sound formats including DTS, Dolby Digital, and Dolby PLII. When stereo content is played, the surround unit defaults to stereo, unless I enable PLII, which I te...

Re: gray/white snowy screen

I experienced this on my Ultra when accessing HDMI through my AVR. On the last 8.0.1 release the issue stopped occurring when I connected directly to my TV (rather than Ultra -> AVR -> TV via HDMI), and it doesn't seem to be an issue with 8.1.0 (which just landed for me today). My guess is that ther...

Re: Build 8.0.1.4018 on 2016 Ultra: Screeching Audio at Start of Stream

Just received the 8.1.0 update, and at least for my Roku Ultra, this issue seems resolved. Alternately, I was able to resolve by switching the audio setting from DD to DD+. My 2016 Roku Ultra automatically downcodes to Dolby Digital as supported by my AVR. So, either way, I'm glad that this issue is...

Re: Roku 3 (4200) vs Roku Streaming Stick + (3810)

I have a Roku 3 (4200x) and a 2016 Roku Ultra that I use with a 1080p (non-4k) TV, and for a few reasons related to your first bullet point am still using the Roku 3 as my main unit, and periodically pull out the Ultra to check for new firmware updates. Reliability/performance: The Roku Ultra is muc...

Re: Build 8.0.1.4018 on 2016 Ultra: Screeching Audio at Start of Stream

I received the 8.0.1-4090 firmware and am still periodically encountering screeching noises on my Roku Ultra, and also still experiencing periodic "white noise" flashes across the screen. This occurs regardless of whether display is set to auto-detect, 1080p, or 720p. Also occurs regardles...

Re: Build 8.0.1.4018 on 2016 Ultra: Screeching Audio at Start of Stream

Have the same model, and I encountered a similar audio problem on the 7.7 and 8.0.0 firmwares; switching TV inputs temporarily stopped the screeching noise. I'm also encountering periodic white flashes across the screen. The 8.0.1 update seems to have resolved the audio problems, but not the white f...

Intermittently, the screen will flicker in white, and also intermittently, a loud high pitched noise will emit from my speakers until I switch inputs. This oc...

Re: Roku Firmware 6.1 build 5520 discussion

Really liking the new firmware, especially the audio options. However, one request if possible - my receiver supports DD and DTS over HDMI, but doesn't support DD+ over HDMI. Would it be possible to have an additional surround option for both DD/DTS but *not* DD+?
