Re: NatGeo restart fails with endofplayback message

I've always found a reset did the job, but per the post above yours, try a full reboot between uninstalling and reinstalling.  Unplug the Roku for 30 seconds or so then plug back in. [typo fixed]

Re: NatGeo restart fails with endofplayback message

Have not seen this here.  When reinstalling, have you reset the Roku between uninstalling and reinstalling NatGeo?  This step is necessary to make sure all vestiges of the channel/app are purged from memory before reinstalling.

Re: Default installed apps

Your channels are tied to your ACCOUNT, not to the individual DEVICE, so you get all the same channels on all devices.  The only exceptions are that some of the newer channel versions may require advanced hardware features not present in some older, less capable units.  In such cases, the older unit...

Re: Sync voices to picture

In the future if this should happen...Unplug Router for 2 minutes and Your Roku device/TV..Plug Router back in and wait until all the lights are flashing then plug Roku back in..usually can fix those out of sync issues. Make sure it's 2 minutes, it clears the Cache. This doesn't sound accurate.. vo...

Re: Suddenly unable to access A&E; Lifetime

When uninstalled did you restart your Roku before re-installing?   Thus step is necessary to be sure there are no vestiges of the old installation still hanging around in memory.

Re: TuneIn streams stop after 10 minutes

FWIW - I use the TuneIn app on my phone and also have the streams stop.  In my case the timing seems more random, anywhere from 5 minutes to several hours.  Also sometimes streams will slow way down to the point that voices sound like alligators growling, or else speed up and sound like chipmunks.  ...

Re: Issue playing audio from USB Roku Media Player

I suspect the wma files are triggering the problem. The wma file will play, but before it ends, a error dialog will come up, stating "no video tracks".. I am seeing this with wma files which used to play without error.  When I convert them to mp3 they run without error.  Most of my audio ...

Re: Multiple tv's/Rokus

All Roku channels attach to your Roku ACCOUNT, not to a particular Roku UNIT. So all Roku units linked to a given Roku account will have the same collection of Roku channel subscriptions automatically. You'll have to check the subscription information for each service to see how many simultaneous CO...

Re: Amazon Prime App doesn't include all tv series on ROKU

I finally got around to looking into this.

On my Roku3 here's what I found:

Go into Mission: Impossible season 1. In the row of options at the top of the screen select Seasons. This bives you access to seasons 1-7.

Re: OS 9.0 and 5GHz WiFi

After a little research, Rokus with 5GHz don't support the DFS  (dynamic frequency selection) channels (52, 56, 60, 64, 100, 104, 108, 112, 116, 132, and 136).  DFS channels are shared with other uses such as weather radar.  Routers supporting these channels must be able to detect such licensed use ...

Re: OS 9.0 and 5GHz WiFi

I don't think channel 48 is one of the supported channels. Mine is on channel 149, and all of my Rokus that support 5 GHz can see it. I always forget what channels are supported, but I don't think any with that low of a number are supported.  If you ever run across that list, or have a partial list...

Re: Amazon Prime App doesn't include all tv series on ROKU

Uh... Did you mean Mission: Impossible?  What happens if you search Amazon Prime for the correct series name?

Aside - the fictional agency in Mission: Impossible is the IMF - Impossible Missions Force

Thanks for the explanation. Sometimes I like knowing why something doesn't work, and you're right, the converter is a little old. So, a new tv it is. Thanks again.

The fact that a new Roku through the same converter doesn't work either makes me suspect the converter itself died, not the Roku.
