Re: [Official] OS 9 Release Notes

Since my Premiere+ is working fine under software 8.1.0 build 4159, it's not a big deal.  I would just like to see Roku offer more software update management options.  I understand their reasoning behind this, however, I have devices from Sony, Apple, and Google, that have already gotten the latest ...

Re: [Official] OS 9 Release Notes

I've been getting regular OS 9 updates on my Model 4660 (2017 Ultra), and everything has been rock solid.  Has anyone here with a 2016 Premiere+, or a black streaming sick 3600. Gotten the OS 9 update yet?  I would really like to give feedback on one of my older devices, but neither one has gotten a...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

Sounds good, I'll keep an eye out for the update on my 2017 Ultra, and 2016 Premiere+.  Thanks for the update. I could have sworn that after the most recent update my Roku 3 was no longer being woken up when I turned on my TV, but today it did it again.  So I guess the update didn't fix it. It seem...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

Noticed yesterday my Roku 3 was updating.  Checked and its now on 8.1.0 build 4145-04 and the "sleep" issue is resolved.  Kudos to Roku for resolving it so quickly. Sounds good, I'll keep an eye out for the update on my 2017 Ultra, and 2016 Premiere+.  Thanks for the update. I could have ...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

1) After the 8.1 update, the Weather4us screen saver does not activate if the TV is off.  The screen saver activates only if the TV is on. 2) The Roku's indicator light stays lit the entire time that the TV is off. Roku Ultra 4660X, Software 8.1.0  Build 4137-46 connected via HDMI to Sony XBR-65X75...

DTS and Plex audio very choppy

Hey all, I have found a very strange issue when playing DVD MKV files with a DTS track on the ROKU Plex channel. What happens is this: The Mpeg2 video track is transcoded by Plex to h.264 as it should be, and the DTS is a direct play / stream. However the audio is extremely choppy almost like a puls...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

I will try a factory reset.  There are a number of other threads that suggest it was a bug that was introduced. My ultra sends the audio via hdmi to the tv.  The tv send audio back to receiver via ARC (also tested with optical).  This whole thing was working fine a month ago.  Now it’s stereo only ...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

Yeah, I M talking about the 2016 Ultra.  Have you tried using it since the last update?  Netflix and Plex both now fail to support Sorround sound using ac3,aac and Dolby.  Was working fine before the update.  Transcoding seems to be busted. Yes, Netflix, VUDU, Plex, etc all give me DD 5.1, and DD+ ...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

8.1 broke the audio on my Ultra.  Now everything I listen to is stereo.  Dolby is toast.  DTS seems to still work.  But most of the content is in Dolby (like Netflix)... and that’s all stereo now. Are we talking a 2016 Ultra here?  The model with optical out, and the built in Dolby transcoder ?  I ...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

Roku technically doesn't sleep the way we know, or think of a device sleeping.  Basically the screensaver turns on after a set inactivity time, and the LED turns off making it look asleep. The new update either changed behavior, or introduced bugs that prevents this from happening reliably in certa...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

I do not have a Sony TV. The only option on my Roku 3 is "1-touch play".  Which is and I assume has always been enabled as I previously would use my Roku to power on my TV if everything was off.  What is happening now is when everything is off (Roku is asleep) and I power on my TV and cab...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

It just depends on if you have a Sony TV, or a TV that has similar options.  The only other option you have is to disconnect the HDMI cable from the ROKU once the TV is powered off. I do not have a Sony TV. That's probably a function of HDMI-CEC, look through the roku menu for that or "Control...
