Re: which unit has headphone jack

One other option I just saw - you can get the Best Buy version of the Streaming Stick+, which also has the headphone jacks in the remote:

$59 vs. $99 for the Ultra. Have to go to Best Buy if you want it.

Re: which unit has headphone jack

Among the players, I think the only one with a Roku 3 style headphone jack in the included remote is the Roku Ultra, which is the $99 one. However, there is a less expensive option. Any Roku can be configured to work with the free Roku app on iOS or Android smartphones. Once paired, the phone's head...

Roku TVs display HDR?

A Best Buy salesman told me tonight that Roku TVs can read HDR content but they don't display it in HDR. He then tried to steer me to other TVs.

Was he lying? I figured he was, but I wanted to check with people that would know.

Connecting a Roku to a Roku TV

I have an older TCL Roku TV which I've been using for a couple of years. Of late it's starting to show its age, not in the TV section, but in the Roku functions. It's incredibly slow both to start up, and to load Netflix or other channels (but especially Netflix). Once Netflix is loaded, it's slow t...

Re: Roku 8.0 Update

OK, OS 8.0 does NOT fix the problem with Netflix app being unstable on   28" TCL 2016 TV.  Just crashed again. Back to rebooting every few days. I'm guessing Roku will say this is a Netflix problem (which it kind of is; still, it'd be nice if we had option of downgrading Netflix ver...

Re: Roku 8.0 Update

8.0 arrived last night on my 28" TCL 2016 TV. The new broadcast schedule grid works nicely. I'm waiting to see if they fixed the problem with Netflix being unstable and needing the TV to do a system restart every few days. One thing I noticed is that Netflix no longer tries to load a video prev...

Re: Insignia TVs... has 8.0 been pushed?

All three of our non-TV Rokus have 8.0 (latest Express, Streaming Stick, Roku 3). The TCL Roku TV is still on 7.70.

Bet there are problems with the live TV grid display feature.

Re: New Roku Hardware Announced. 4K/HDR Stick - Roku OS8

Anyways, sure wish we could choose the shortcut buttons that we want.  For example I'd like to get the Streaming Stick+ for travel, but its 4th remote shortcut is PS Vue which we don't use.  We'd like DTV Now instead, which is the 4th shortcut on the remote bundled with the regular Streaming Stick....

Re: Netflix app closing repeatedly

My TCL Roku TV does the same thing. Temporary fix is settings-->system-->power-->system restart (as noted above). I do it every few days, and Netflix works normally.

Re: OMG LiveTVPause is way cool

My TCL Roku TV updated on December 7. You might want to go to Settings>System>System Update>Check Now to be sure it's not just waiting for the auto-update.

Re: Upgrading my Roku

That should all work. Your Roku channels stay with your Roku account. If you log in to the same account with your new Roku, it'll remember all your channels. You may also want to log in to your Roku account online, where there's an interface for removing your old Roku from the listing. This isn't ma...

OMG LiveTVPause is way cool

Last week I put up a question asking how fast of a USB drive you had to have to use LiveTVPause. Nobody answered, so today I just went out and got a Samsung USB 3 16gb drive and tried it out. It worked! And I have to say I'm impressed with how well LiveTVPause works in use. To enable it, first you n...

Live TV Pause "USB too slow"

Just downloaded the 7.5 update to my TCL Roku TV, and wanted to try out the new "Live TV Pause" feature. I put in a 16gb flash drive, and told the TV to format it for Live TV Pause. Formatting failed with a message saying my USB drive is too slow. Any guidance on finding a USB flash drive ...

Re: 7.5.4099 available for all earlier roku players now

Updated our Roku 3 to 7.5.4099 manually today. Seems fine for now. Anything in it we'd notice as a difference?
