Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

^^ Agree ^^ I have everything setup in a stack a certain way. My Roku is always on the top of my Tivo Roamio. With the Roku 4 I had to move it to it's own spot and away from everything else. There was no way I was putting that oven on the top of my Roamio which has a plastic casing.. I am not intere...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

We won't know for several months to a year.. The response so far is encouraging but all of these units they are replacing quickly are still within the return period. My point is while we don't know for sure, we can assume that if the unit is operating above it's acceptable heat level that it will di...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

Roku just needs to solve the issue. My guess is that less than 10% of Roku 4 buyers will have the know how, the ability, or the desire to tear the unit apart and fix it themselves. Sure many reading this thread can probably do it, no problem, but we are in the vast minority. Opening the unit also ca...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

Feel free to correct me... I'll wait for you to Google some answers. I was going to be nice but your original response is laughable.. I get it, you are trying to sound smart but you failed, and rather miserably I might add.. Since you obviously have limited knowledge, let me try and make this simpl...

If you have no thermal material between the SoC and heatsink, that's not something that builds overtime. Lol. You'll notice right away.

Cooling is not a tough fix if you happen to miss your return window. It won't be ideal, but its certainly fixable.

Really?

Not so much but okay..

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

So until we hear something from Roku about a recall or whether or not units with certain serial numbers are part of a bad batch, we just have to wait and hope nothing melts or bursts into flames or whatever? Or do we just send our units back and try our luck with another.? Pretty weird right now. R...

Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

I wonder if the owners of the quiet Roku fans have less sensitive ears than the owners of the loud Roku fans? If you're trying to imply that all Roku 4s are loud, and just some people can't hear it, that's not true. Others in this thread have had loud units replaced and the replacements are near si...

Re: Roku Makes A Statement on the Roku 4 Noise Issue

So will the issue or a proper response be pressed? That response is almost laughable and in reality is not a response at all.. Not blaming you for the canned response but like they say on that NFL show ----> Come on man! If not then perhaps a follow up article advising consumers of Roku's refusal to...

Re: Roku Makes A Statement on the Roku 4 Noise Issue

Maybe another news source will do a proper article on the matter. I'd like to hear Roku's official response on the following: 1) Why was a fan used (plenty of other high powered electronics do not use a fan) in place of other options? 2) Why did the unit need to be so large? (It's almost 4 times lar...

Re: Roku Makes A Statement on the Roku 4 Noise Issue

I do not and why would I contact them as I am not writing a half-baked news article on the topic and then posting a bait link to it.. I clicked the link expecting far more than what everyone on the planet earth already knows. If you have a problem with a product (not just Roku) you contact them........

Re: Roku Makes A Statement on the Roku 4 Noise Issue

Easy questions that are already answered out there: 1: A dual core processor was used in the Roku 3 that puts out a lot less heat. The Quad-Core processor on the Roku 4 that runs 60FPS (Compared to the Fire TV 2 that is capped at 30FPS) puts out a lot of heat. 2: Right now their is the fan issue (m...

Re: Roku Makes A Statement on the Roku 4 Noise Issue

No really a statement...... I was expecting more than the what article says so I assume this is nothing more than click bait. For those who don't want to click the link it basically says 'A few units have problems and to contact Roku' A few units? LOL and ummmm, yeah most people know to contact Rok...

Re: Roku 4 vs Roku 3 – Speed Test

(Respectfully) Is it worth the faster speed if it is going to die on you after 4 days of use? Or maybe longer but have fan issues that will get worse and not better over time? I would rather have a "slower" unit that works instead of a bad one over a few milliseconds (or even a second or ...

Re: Roku 4 vs Roku 3 – Speed Test

Meh, I'm not buying the video as being real world.. My 4, before it died a horrible death, was much faster and snappier than my 3. I noticed the speed difference in every area and with every channel. Now since going back to my 3, I am missing the speed increases that I once enjoyed for the few short...
