Re: Hard-wire a Roku TV with ethernet-dongle-USB port

I just ordered the $2 one ($2.80 Canadian). I'll post whether it works or not when it gets here in a month. :( -JT Great! :D :D I would have ordered it, but am in the process of moving/downsizing. In fact, I have to toss wads of cables (rca, rca components, serial cables). So yeah. No. I can't orde...

Re: Hard-wire a Roku TV with ethernet-dongle-USB port

Hi, I just bought the 43" Sharp Roku TV from Best Buy today. The first USB dongle didn't work (a 3.0 USB to ethernet adapter), then I tried the one I had connected to out WII U. Success!! The brand is "Plugable" and the Model is USB2-E100 (sold at Newegg and Amazon for $12). Just hoo...

Re: Does your ISP need to be in Roku's providers list to act

Oh, and Shawn, if you do have any info about how to get us listed on the ISP list for any channel, I would gladly welcome it. I might as well get us on as many lists as I can (I have already started the process with ESPN, at the behest of another customer). The channels don't ask for ISP, they ask ...

Re: noAuthz error

This prompt is a result of the channel needing to be authorized again. This authorization requirement pertains to agreements between your TV provider and the content owner (channel). You will notice this policy varies with different TV providers & content holders. For instance, on Comcast TV: HB...

Re: TCL Roku Tv - Multiple Issues

Anyone? Anything... While updates are supposed to be done seamlessly, sometimes there are extra files left over in the system cache which can cause problems. The best way to clear these files is by performing a factory reset. If you begin encountering issues after a major update (like the one that ...

Re: TCL Roku TV 7.0 update live

My insignia 40" with 6.2 has the signal meter for each channel. Title, rating (tv-14 etc), resolution, sap, cc. As I'm not currently using the tuner, I can't offer insights. But it's good to hear the actual tuner functionality is also operating as expected. As for for pulling program info, etc...

Re: TCL Roku TV 7.0 update live

Considering how often my 2xs freezes, this scares me being my main TV is a TCL. :( Nothing to worry about. It truly seems fine. Knowing the ramifications of rendering an entire TV inoperable, it seems Roku had higher standards for quality control on the TV updates. Hence, the nearly three-month del...

TCL Roku TV 7.0 update live

Moment of truth... Post upgrade, sluggish performance was to be expected. Cache's all muddled up. Just did a factory reset, in-the-process of re syncing. Really hoping for a solid performance... Really hoping this update doesn't bork the TV... Channel Update 29 of 31... Seems okay so far. Netflix UI...

My Roku TV at some point got 7.0, and it has indeed rectified the problem. I didn't get any notice about being accepted into the beta, so perhaps it's rolling out now.


Not seeing the update for 40fs3850....

Perhaps on limited rollout?

Re: Constant activation needed for HBOGo

If it was "every few months" or even weekly I could deal with it but less than 48 hours later? i don't use it daily so essentially every time I go to use it I have to activate it again. As for it being related to my ISPs policy I stay logged in on my computers and even my tablets don't re...

Re: Constant activation needed for HBOGo

You will notice this policy varies with different TV providers & content holders. For instance, on Comcast: HBO and ESPN only need to be re-authorized every few months. On the other hand, anything Fox related (FXX & Fox NOW) requires authorization just about every week. And for anything Viac...

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

Roku wouldn't need to do any of that to get WatchESPN working for their users -- they could simply give users the ability to roll back their Roku software to the previous version of the software they were using prior to version 7. I can venture a few guesses as to the some of the implications tied ...

Re: Looks like 7.0 firmware is rolling out

Can you say with certainty that you used Roku's WatchESPN channel to view a replay (not live) NCAA football game back when you were beta testing? Quick reminder: No one involved in the beta should be saying anything about it due to an NDA agreement. That said, WatchESPN works for MOST of its conten...
