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...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

That's probably a function of HDMI-CEC, look through the roku menu for that or "Control other devices".  Probably was turned on during the update. As mentioned, I did all the checking and the settings on ROKU, or even the TV's CEC don't change the behavior here, it's an HDMI power issue w...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

Hey again, Just installed Software version 8.1 build 4137 on a 2017 Ultra.  Was curious if one of the new features  was to make the ROKU automatically wake up out of stand by when turning on the display.  That seems to happen now.  If the TV  is on and ROKU goes into screensaver mode, and display i...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

There was an update available in the secret menu to take me to version 8.0.0 build 4183. This fixed the problem...i can now use the volume! Glad you were able to roll back.  When I tried after updating and seeing the issues,  the version I got in the secret screen was the same version I had updated...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

Since i received the most recent updat on 06/19, oir Roku TV has had several bugs. The worst is that we cant change the volume on the tv without it crashing and rebooting. I have tried both the remote and phone app and get the same problem. Basically you push the volume button and then about 30 sec...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

I am looking forward to the 8.1 update for the dual listening capability as I have 4 kids. When can we expect to see the roll out complete? I have be waiting and waiting.. I had the update for a short time, on a 2016 Premiere+, and it caused a bunch of glitching.  I'm glad after rolling back, that ...

Re: Upgrade OS of 4640rw?

Is this thread too old to add a post to at this point?  Sorry if so. Was just going to say I've noticed the same issue on all 2017 ROKU models.  My older stick, and Premiere+ have the integrated movie store. With that said, when I got information  on this issue a few weeks back, it sounds like it ha...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

As already noted on some other non-ROKU forums the speculation is ROKU pulled the initial 8.1 update which is why many of us have not gotten it.  Now some folks who had the original 8.1 update are reporting they've gotten a new version of the 8.1 FW.  Given ROKU says nothing about most of this FW t...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

What is the big deal about 8.1 that people are clamoring for? The only thing I saw it did for me was allow me to use HDR with the ROKU on a port that only supports HDR@30.  I have a TV with 4 ports all HDCP 2.2 compliant and all do 4K@60.  Only 2 do HDR@60 and 2 do HDR@30.  So having that ability w...
