Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

Yes, things can easily be mis-read when one is not paying attention, ignoring the obvious--typically for reasons of one's own.

Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

I know exactly what I'm talking about, but you apparently do not. I'm saying that I expect the Roku to be where I left it, when I left it the last time I watched whatever channel I was watching. It used to do that; now it doesn't. I'm not talking about a channel UI feature for Resume, which is in fa...

Re: Roku returns to home screen after a certain amount of ti

Roku seems to keep finding ways to convince me to never buy another one of their boxes... like I really needed any more convincing. Of course, now I might just decide to not wait any longer but go ahead and replace what I have with something else that actually works properly. Resume is the #1 reason...

Re: What's Wrong With Roku 4?

Biggest problem: all of us who *don't* have a 4 have to put up with the firmware updates being designed primarily for the 4, which have essentially reduced all of my older Rokus to crap units with continuous issues. I used to be happy with the several I've purchased. Now, I'll never buy another one.

Re: Roku Streaming stick 3500x: HDCP Unauthorized Content

I saw this for the first time [ever] today--on my 2XS (with Netflix). Frankly, it looks like yet another symptom of the broken 7.x update (the "gift" that keeps giving... problems). I rebooted and it went away.

I used to like Roku (before this latest update).

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Well, at least I'm not the only one having the same annoying problems with this update (remote "not working"--though the led on the base unit recognizes when a remote button is pressed, menu elements no longer scroll smoothly, channels terminating unexpectedly). It's like they added functi...

Amazon Instant Video (Prime)

Those informational popups that you get for the highlighted/selected title while browsing are gone as of today (Aug. 12).

Is it just me or is anyone else encountering this, too?

Thanks.

Re: Pandora radio screensaver gone

Yep, as of today it's back to its old self for me (which, sadly, still includes not cover art for some albums but instead has a photo of some media type (CD case or even cassette tape), which, to be honest, is rather annoying; I'd rather have some generic image than someone's idea of "quaint&qu...

Pandora radio screensaver gone

Anyone else seeing this issue: the Pandora radio screensaver (floating album cover) has been replaced by the default Roku screensaver (floating "Roku"). It was OK earlier this week (before the most recent Roku update?).

Re: Will You Be Adding Sling TV To Your Roku?

I know there is a larger thread about Sling TV, but I'm interested in comments from those who actually plan on using the service. You can sign up for an email notice for when Sling TV starts here: http://www.sling.com/ Not being interested in ESPN I don't expect to use the service year around. But ...

Re: OTA - A Discussion

Well, the fact is that my "10 cent coat hanger" (old rabbit ears + bowtie) that I'd had for several decades before and which only picked up most of the local channels and only the "big 4" affiliates (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS) OK most of the time did not perform equally well. My recepti...

Re: Which Roku Streaming Player should I get?

One factor is whether you want the new Netflix UI ; Roku 3 and the HTML stick have it, I guess you mean "HDMI" instead of "HTML"? (I was scratching my head till this occurred to me.) I prefer to connect my Roku to my network via wired Ethernet (I only use wireless for portable d...

Re: Which Roku Streaming Player should I get?

Check the Roku site for the features of the currently available models. Get the one that has all of the features you want/need (or plan to "need")--why pay extra for stuff you don't want to do. I'm quite happy with my Streaming Stick--works fine with Amazon and Crunchyroll; works OK with N...

Re: OTA - A Discussion

I've got a Mohu Leaf--simple & effective. I get all of my local channels, which wasn't the case before I got the Leaf. Any more channels/stations from outside my area would just be duplication. The picture & sound are perfect 99% of the time, especially for the PBS channels, which are the on...
