Re: Is it normal for a Roku device to be warm when in idle?

Is it normal for a Roku device to be warm to the touch when in idle/sleep mode? The reason I ask is because when I got up this morning my Roku Ultra was warm to the touch and I hadn't used it since last night. My Ultra is slightly warm and it's been sleeping for 4 hours.  I would imagine there's a ...

Re: Those Pesky Lower Four Remote Buttons

Yea, I don't allow advertising to infiltrate my media and those steps are way more complicated than ripping a few buttons out of a remote and chucking them in a trash can... re-program that! It's also interesting to note that my Roku Remotes NEVER started becoming possessed by Satan, locking up the ...

Re: Resets after one hour pause

... and just as a "BTW": If you want to prevent your Roku from updating anything just fire up the Plex "ONO" App. I just spent 3 days in the app - with at least 18 inactive hours a day - had to manually exit the app and invoke a manual update, at which time the latest version of ...

Re: Resets after one hour pause

Well, you can use the Plex ONO app without worry of it EVER going back home. ONO is Live. It won't go back home automatically after a period of inactivity.
I'm not sure what the app approval process actually does, but it sure doesn't test any apps for compliance before approval.

Re: Resets after one hour pause

The problem with it being globally enforced and no way to override is that it kicks in when it is totally inappropriate. As an example I was using Plex to listen too an audio book and I had no visual display once it was started and I paused it to cook and eat supper and, after supper O found that P...

Re: Resets after one hour pause

I use my Roku Ultra to watch youtube TV.  When I pause a show it works fine unless an hour passes in which case it leaves the show and goes back to the main screen.  Is there any way I can change this behavior? Thanks. If YT engineers feel the same way I do about 'Pausers' (on my Plex Server), they...

Re: Remote control logo

When weird stuff happens to me (and weird stuff is not uncommon with Roku Remotes) I reboot everything (if it hasn't done so spontaneously), and if necessary, or deemed therapeutic, 'Re-Pair' the remote. Also, if you've ever had the headphones plugged in (if available), try plugging and unplugging i...

Re: TCL Roku TV owners, are you happy with the system and support?

It's simply not a good idea to bundle your TV with a Roku in the same box (unless you're buying one for your Grandma - and she lives with you - so you can be there to fix it). I'm all for the Roku part, but buy a nice TV and hook up a Roku to it... like the Ultra. Generally speaking Smart TV's are n...

Re: LATEST roku models without auto preview netflix?

But I think we've gone a little off topic... :lol: The moral of that story is: Deal with the Screwy Netflix Feature Set or Cancel. Netflix, obviously, isn't interested in User Input, their UI developers have run amok and it's costing them Customers, but not enough to impact the Gillions in profit m...

Re: LATEST roku models without auto preview netflix?

Chicken, you've "proven" you don't like Roku products.. why not just move along? Very few if ANY streaming devices allow offline streaming, and I can't think of ANY other than phones and tablets that have enough internal storage to allow offline Netflix viewing, including Fire TV devices ...

Re: LATEST roku models without auto preview netflix?

The two happiest days in a Netflix Streaming customer's life are: The Day you get it... The Day you cancel... (also works for former Boat Owners) Netflix thought I would enjoy what their developers cook up... They were wrong. Been a happy non-Netflix-Streamer for almost 5 years - the happiest 5 year...

Re: DVR for Roku?

Yeah, it seems they are tiptoeing the ragged legal edge. But I have to say it would be nice to download a lot of the stuff I watch multiple times. Since I already have a media server, it's simple to make it available on my network.  Due to the high (and growing ever higher) cost of 'Pay TV' million...

Re: New Plex App will NOT return Home...

... If complaining on Roku Forums could get 'Movie Reviews' out of the Plex app, I'd try it, but I fear the chances of that are pretty slim. Not too long ago I finally completed my final switch from Plex to Emby as I found that the Plex devs were just impossible to deal with and less responsive tha...

Re: New Plex App will NOT return Home...

Yep, I hear ya, loud and clear. I hated the auto-jump-home feature at first myself, but after a few days of waking up to the CLOC/Weather Screensaver, I got over it. If complaining on Roku Forums could get 'Movie Reviews' out of the Plex app, I'd try it, but I fear the chances of that are pretty sli...
