CBS All Access stable now?

A few months ago, I remember reading about issues with CBS All Access on Roku's. Is it stable now?

Re: Authenticate cable provider

With most Roku apps, you may need to find the settings in the APP (not the Roku), and there should be a Sign In or similar entry. Sometimes it is obvious, for others, it is under SETTINGS (sometimes shown as a gear icon).. It gives you a letter/number code, and a website link you use to authorize wi...

Re: One remote to two differnt sticks???

The Sticks use WiFi to communicate with their remotes. You have to pair the stick with the remote. If both use the same remote, both will be controlled at the same time. It's not like IR remotes, where you need to be in the same room. The WiFi remote will work from quite a long distance.

Re: annoying display at the bottom of whatever I'm watching.

Seems as if your TV may be in Demo mode, which is usually used for store displays.

Re: Cannot activate BBC America on Roku 4

No luck. I tried using IE, which I never use otherwise and it had no real cookies in it. Still doesn't work.

Cannot activate BBC America on Roku 4

For some reason, I cannot get BBC America to activate on my Roku 4. I have done the normal delete, reboot, reinstall. I get the code, go to the web site, enter it, pick the provider (Xfinity), and it says it's activated on the web site, but the Roku never updates. I also have a Roku Express 3900RW, ...

Re: No casting options from Android

I'm not sure if I posted this before, but, depending on the phone/tablet, it may or may not work with non-Chromecast. I have a MotoG5+, which runs a relatively stock Android, and it will not cast to my Roku's or Sony BD player.

Re: BBC America

My issue with the BBCA app is that it won't authorize. I get the code, authorize on their website with Xfinity, the website says it's authorized, but the Roku never updates,

Re: No Longer Working with Logitech Harmony

The Roku Stick models ONLY work with WiFi-based remotes. They do not support standard IR (infrared) commands.

Re: Two Rokus in Same Room

If you are willing to only use a phone/tablet app to control one of the Roku's, you can use some black electrical tape to cover the sensor on one so it will not see the IR commands.

Re: Roku, STILL no keyboard/remote combo? Is this a patent encumbrance problem?

Since the IR and wireless only has a limited set of commands, the only way to get a full keyboard is through a network connection and app. I was thinking about that years ago.  Would it be possible for someone to make an (updateable) electronic physical controller that sends these ECP network comma...
