Re: Turning off WiFi Direct

Roku 3 - Jan 2015 purchase so not the new 2015 version. Ran for a few months connected to the 2.4 GHz band of my dual band router. Of my other wifi-enabled, devices, only my cell phone is capable of using the 5 GHz band, so I switched the Roku to using 5 GHz several months ago thinking I might get b...

Re: Turn your streamer remote into a universal remote

My Roku3 is mounted to the BACK of the tv with hook-and-loop tape, thus cannot be controlled with a normal IR universal remote and can ONLY use the supplied Roku remote via WiFi, or separate app on a phone or tablet. I can also use an additional app to control the tv volume, etc, but no matter what,...

Re: MLBTV "Loading, please wait" issues

MLTV is rinning a $49.99 /special this week for Fathers Day. Maybe the servers are getting overloaded with new subscribers trying out their new toys.

Re: Why can't you buy more than 8 units from the store?

Just to address what is probably your most minor point ..

I just stuck my Roku 3 to the back of my tv with self-stick Velcro tape. A whole 15-foot roll of 3/4" tape is $10-15 depending on the vendor. Handy stuff to keep around.

Re: Switch user profile on Netflix with Roku2

Old Roku (2 I think) in bedroom used almost exclusively by my wife. Shows only the profile associated with the main original Netflix account. Roku 3 in Living Room, mostly used by me. Netfllix UI appears identical to the Netflix UI on my Samsung smart tv. Multiple Netflix profiles shown. Since my wi...

I'm not seeing any wifi direct connection with the new Roku 2..


Maybe it only fires up wifi direct if it detects a wifi-direct compatible remote is being used?

Re: Streaming "House of Cards"-picture changes contrast

My Samsung does a lot of this -- with signals from any source. Commercials with white text on a black background (or the titles of each short Frasier segment), for instance, show up as much fainter gray text on black. Dark scenes are shown even darker making them hard to view, especially in a light ...
