Re: NFL App not working

The apps are created and maintained by their provider, in this case NFL, not Roku.  You need to be complaining to NFL.

Blaming Roku is like blaming your television manufacturer when your local broadcast station has a problem.

Re: Roku is eating up Bandwidth

The figures you get from your ISP are your maximum throughput rates.  If you run actual speed tests occasionally, you'll probably find that you often get much less.  Mine is only a 50 Mbps plan but it often tests out at 10-20 or sometimes even lower. Given all that's been said to this point... My gu...

Re: Tunein Radio not working.

FWIW - I think Tune-In in general is getting flakey. I use Tune-In's app on a couple of Android devices and have the same problem. After a short period of time the stream just stops and must be restarted manually. This just started a couple of months ago - it would run all night before that. I don't...

Re: Hi, Need help!

My Acorn subscription supports one device at a time. I believe one can purchase a subscription supporting more. Don't know about Btitbox.

It was even worse last year when they'd not only show the same Chevrolet commercial every break, but they'd repeat it several times in a row.

Re: A question about movie aspect ratio

I think a lot of Netflix and Amazon "original programming" wasn't originally programmed for them at all, but was purchased by them post-production.

Re: roku slow/no connect amazon prim

Between uninstalling and reinstalling Amazon did you reset your Roku? The Roku reset is necessary to get the original Amazon installation completely out of memory before reinstalling.

Re: A question about movie aspect ratio

.. or sometimes films going into the secondary markets in the US (sold to streaming services or direct-to-disk) are sold as theatrical releases in other countries.

Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

For me, on my Roku3, problem is not gone, but it is much less frequent.  Occasionally stutters and misses frames (usually right in the middle of a critical play, of course) but I no longer seem to have the complete visual freezes that I was seeing before.

Re: Unable to Login - unable to Activate - no help from Support

Was this issue resolved last month for this user? I'm basically having exactly the same issue. I'm trying to set up my new TLC roku TV. When I tried to go to roku.com/link, I was able to enter the code, and then when I attempted to create a Roku account, the website told me there was already an acc...

Re: Upside-down Apple iPhone video with Roku Ultra

The camera (or in this case phone) orientation is coded into the EXIF information embedded in the file.   Some applications know how to read EXIF data and utilize it, others don't.  I sometimes have this problem with still photos taken with my camera or phone when displayed from my computer via Roku...

Re: weather underground

AFAIK - Weather Underground was acquired by The Weather Channel (weather.com) in 2012 and the whole shootin' match was purchased by IBM in 2015.  (The Weather Channel television service is a separate entity, and is currently owned by Entertainment Services.)  Source: Wikipedia article My speculation...

Re: No Roku Support

I'd also suggest, if the problem occurs directly following a commercial, try to make note of WHICH commercial triggered the problem.

My Feed info comes from the programming providers.  Your complaint should go to TBS.

Re: MLB.TV 2018 on Roku devices

Reminder re minimizing subscription costs For the last several years, MLB has offered a half-off deal for the remainder of the MLB.TV season for a few days around both Mothers Day and Fathers Day.  So for the last couple of years, here's what I've done.  I subscribe to MLB-At Bat (audio-only servic...
