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

The Roku does not understand any remote codes other than what is on most of the various remotes. It doesn't even support numbers.

Re: Caption problem mainly with Amazon Prime....

I haven't used it for awhile, but the last time I tried using captions with Prime (I was watching a Japanese show), they are rather small and hard to read. I didn't see any way to resize it.

Re: Two Roku boxes for the one TV

To add: If you higher-end Roku's with WiFi support, or one with and one without, you can cover the IR sensor on the one that supports the WiFi remote so it cannot see the IR codes.

Re: Insanely low internet speeds using Roku TV (Wired)

Exactly how are you measuring? Also, as mentioned, you don't need much more than 15-20Mbit for most streaming.

Re: Would a new player help

Tx for quick response. Sounds like a new Roku is a good idea. Any suggestions on which one? One goal is to cut the cords w cable and satellites. TX again. All of the current models appear to use the same processor, so are about the same speed. The Express models have less memory (both RAM and Flash...

Since all those posts keep using the same phone number, could you add it to some sort of blocked word list, in several formats?

Re: Spam idea

Rather than put in time limits, can you limit the number of new subject posts a new user can make per day? They have found a way around these time counts, and are getting very bad again.

Re: Internet speed test

Don't worry. What speed test was it? There is a Netflix-related speed test that seems to be limited and often only maxes out a little higher than Netflix's max video bitrate.

Out-of-control spam on this forum

Wow Roku, you really, really need to figure out a way to stop this spam, even if it means forcing people to wait a day or two to be verified before allowing posts. Wading through 3 screens of university spam is insane!

Re: Use roku services on Nvidia shield tv

Roku is not a streaming service. It is hardware or software built into some TV's used to install apps from other services. Roku does have a free channel, but you need a Roku to use it.

Re: Any remote that you can change channels on using the keypad instead of up and down?

You can set up "Favorite Channels" which lessens the number of channels you must scroll through. Still a pain. When you say the beta comcast app are you referring to the one you can download on your phone ? If so i don't find that any faster than going back to all channels or favorite cha...

Re: Any remote that you can change channels on using the keypad instead of up and down?

On the "beta" Comcast app, I think hitting * or similar will call up a number keyboard where you can type in channel numbers by selecting them. Clunky, but Roku does not have remote codes for numbers.

Re: Hooking up RokuExpress+ to an old TV

Rather than use a VCR, just use an RF modulator. They are around $5-$15 on Amazon. You may even be able to find one at a local store.

Re: What happened to the official NASA Television channel?

As mentioned, have you tried "Joe Screwdriver's NASA Channel"? It's just links to the main public feed, and an educational feed.

Unusual Roku4 reboots

I have a Roku 4 and have never had any real issues with it. It is set to go to low-power sleep after awhile, and to 'run cooler'. I've had it for awhile and it's been stable. It is connected via Ethernet. It's 4400X, software 8.0.0 built 4128-17. Yesterday, when I woke it up after it had not been us...
