Re: 24p not working on Netflix

Just reporting that this is also a problem, with Netflix alone, on my UK Streaming Stick+ which has recently got the 9.1 firmware. Worked fine with 9.0, and works on other channels. Hope it gets sorted soon.

Re: Popcornflix broken for good?

Good to know thanks, but sorry you're stuffed as well. I've not got around to asking the Popcornflix people about it, partly because they want the social media approach (awful, I'm GenX so not so keen on SM) and partly because I've moved house recently and always seem to have yet more stuff to sort ...

Re: Popcornflix broken for good?

It has worked before, always used to since I've been using Roku. Until recent months.

Re: Popcornflix broken for good?

FURTHER UPDATE: ARRRGH! I've just checked out their web site and they offer absolutely zero methods to contact them. No phone number, no email address, no support web form, in fact no support area on their site at all. That really shows their intent re. support, which is not to provide any. So it's ...

Re: Popcornflix broken for good?

UPDATE: OK, so I've spoken with another UK Roku user who is using the older, purple Roku stick, different router, different ISP, different internet system entirely (I'm cable/docsis, they are telephone line), other end of England from me, same issue with Popcornflix as me exactly. Also, no issues wi...

Re: Popcornflix broken for good?

Yep, I'm in mainland UK and Popcornflix works on the web site. I don't think it is a Roku region tag thing, as in such cases the channel generally isn't listed in the store. Since I've removed (and rebooted) then reinstalled from the store I know it is still listed. Website version of Popcornflix is...

Re: Popcornflix broken for good?

Yea, thought as much because there doesn't seem to be an uproar on here. So, can anyone confirm that this is a UK/non-US thing and not just me? Or am I the only one barred from Popcornflix? Also, if I am the only one, any tips on fixing it? I have already moved house and swapped out all my networkin...

Popcornflix broken for good?

This may be a UK only issue, but for many months my Streaming Stick+ has crashed every time I try to launch Popcornflix. I have tried removing, rebooting and re-adding the channel. I've tried a factory reset. I've tried moving house, replacing the modem with a new version and replacing the router wi...

Re: Roku Utra Remote Blank Shortcuts?

Firstly, they were not on all Rokus in the past. In the UK they were not on the R1, they were not on the Roku Stick (purple one), and I don't believe they were on any of that previous generation. Suddenly they are present on the new Roku Stick+ and I guess on the Express too (in the UK there was a j...

Re: HDMI splitter/switch suggestions..

I use a Belkin HDMI 4 port switch. It works well. I recommend one with a remote control. It does auto-switch, but such mechanisms are a bit hit and miss depending on the devices connected (especially if one is a Roku which puts out a constant signal) so a manual remote control option is best.

Re: Express Plus: Can both hdmi and composite outputs be used at the same time?

I can confirm that the old Roku 1 used to be able to output analogue audio at the same time as HDMI. That device had its own issues, but it could do what's being asked here.

Re: XBox 1 S and X To Get Dolby Vision HDR Via Firmware Update

Yes, that is interesting. Perhaps it will be possible after all. Of course, there's still the cost of licensing DV. Since they won't even license Dolby and DTS for lossless bitstream passthrough, I'm uncertain they'll ever spring for a DV license. Slightly off topic, but they do not need to pay any...

Re: Youtube aspect ratio issue on Roku Express+

Now some 4:3 CRT TVs, especially the later models made when 16:9 CRTs were also a thing, could take a 16:9 anamorphic analogue signal and would then display it as 16:9 with letterbox. Assuming yours is doing that, then I guess your Roku could well be putting out an anamorphic 16:9 picture as a matte...
