Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

Still no players with Dolby Vision. Disappointing. People keep saying this is important but I do not personally know of even one person that uses it or knows what it actually is or desires it. Those that want it seem quite assertive that it has value for them but I have never really seen any good r...

Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

https://techcrunch.com/2019/09/19/roku-unveils-a-new-streaming-player-lineup-plus-roku-os-9-2-launch/ There is one paragraph I found particularly intriguing: This remote has been upgraded, too, with personal shortcut buttons that can be mapped to any Roku voice command. For example, you could say “W...

Re: Roku Ultra won't connect via Wired connection

I've seen other threads on this topic but they're all locked and I can't ask questions or follow-up. I just got a Roku Ultra player and I'm trying to get the best experience I can so I'm trying to use a Wired connection. I've tried various cables and varying ethernet ports on my router but no matte...

Re: Roku Ultra mounted behind TV

I know people that have their ultra mounted on the back of the TV and even one that has his mounted in another room and the output is run to their TV via a 50 ft HDMI cable. But you are correct interference can be a problem. My suggestion is to test it and see if it works for you. Also the exact pla...

Re: Tennis on ESPN+?

As I said ESPN and ESPN+ are actually different services. You can, as you have done, subscribe to ESPN+ without having access to ESPN programming but you cannot get ESPN programing without a TV subscription. Even though ESPN shows the content together on a lot of screens they are actually two separa...

Re: Tennis on ESPN+?

ESPN+ content is separate from ESPNs. There are several leagues and events that are ESPN+ only or mostly. One example is the MLS. Most MLS games, but not all, are available through ESPN+ only. I think this is also true for a lot of tennis tournaments. ESPN can be mostly activated by having ESPN avai...

Re: Help, I left my remote at home when I went on holiday

All you need to do is download the Roku remote app on your phone, then you don't need your remote. Actually that will probably not work. For it to work you must be able to log onto the local network on your Roku and you cannot do that without your remote. There are some workarounds that can work li...

Re: Battery Life on Remote

Just to add a data point to this thread: I have 2 Ultras and 2 Roku 3s in use with the two Ultras being the most heavily used. My remotes last for months, over 6 months, and my main Ultra has had the same set for 11 months and is still reporting at 33%. i do not know why I should have such good luck...

Re: Better for upstairs room- Stick+ or Ultra?

My recommendation is get an Ultra and do whatever is needed to connect it wired. Wireless works pretty good most of the time with Roku BUT wired is always better and you will get a lot fewer dropped connections or other problems that wireless introduces to the streaming equation. If you absolutly ca...

Re: Remote shortcuts

New to Roku and to PS VUE, is there a button or easy way to access the PS VUE guide from the Roku remote. I know the back button. But that only works if the guide was the last page. Otherwise I press the home button and have to launch PS VUE again, looking for a short cut.   Thx. Bob Ask the folks ...

Re: Port-Forwarding for WAN Control?

I do not really know what Lambda is but I use a Harmony Hub with my Harmony remote and that combo seems to give me full Alexa control of my Roku. As an additional benefit I also get control of my receiver, Fire TV and Shield TV. It requires no port forwarding or any "special" setup. I real...

Re: Roku TV - No Option/Setting to Use Optical Audio?

Optical output from TV into the optical input on the AVR, yes. Red light glowing from TV optical output, yes. Once plugged in to the TV, the other end of the cable glows red. I appreciate mentioning the possibility of a cap, that seems to be a common issue that's infrequently answered for other peo...
