Re: Is there a connection speed test app for Roku?

Dead thread, but to keep everybody from bothering... Even if you can install SPEEDTEST after wading through all the warnings, when you try to run it all you get is a notice that it's been discontinued.

Re: hi guy,i have a question,please help me!

Is your bedroom DSL set up with a router that provides wifi service?  Or do you just have a DSL modem that only provides a single outlet port which provides a direct wired ethernet connection directly to your computer?

Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

Two work-arounds until MLB gets this fixed: A quick pause/resume can restore proper operation TEMPORARILY. Setting tbe audio to use the radio broadcast almost totally eliminates the problem. Press * and set it to use the third audio option. Note that you may need to repeat this process if you jump b...

Re: MLB Freezing & Choppy v3

I think they must be tweaking something at their end. Watching last night's St Louis/Pittsburgh game the choppiness wasn't gone for me, but it was much less frequent.

Re: Roku media player can't display photos in correct orientation

But it has only been released for Windows.  . Here's a list of applications that are supposed to do lossless jpeg image rotation...

Re: Roku media player can't display photos in correct orientation

Modern cameras and phones can record information about the image in embedded EXIF (EXchangeable Image File) data - picture orientation is one such piece of EXIF data. Some image display programs read and use this EXIF information, many do not. In my experience, Roku's Media Player does not. I have f...

Re: Netflix new annoying auto preview when browsing will make me cancel for good.

The only reason your old Roku still has Netflix's old interface is that it is too underpowered to be able to run the new one.

Re: A little problem with MLB.TV/Roku

Were I hit with this problem first thing I'd try would be to uninstall/reinstall the MLB channel. With MLB highlighted on Roku home screen choose Options (press *) and select 'Remove channel'. Restart the Roku to make sure MLB is expunged from memory (important step). Reinstall MLB from 'Streaming C...

Re: un-geeky mom trying to set up WWE in a special needs adult group home...

When you uninstalled WWE did you reset your Roku before reinstalling WWE?  This step is necessary to be sure all vestiges of the original installation are purged from memory.

Re: Washed out Netflix

When you deleted Netflix did you reboot the Roku before re-adding Netflix? This step is necessary to clear the old app out of memory.
