Re: Roku App wants to open movie on Netflix Android App

Fwiw that's the same behavior I see on my iPhone, meaning I search a movie on the Roku app, select it, select Netflix from viewing options and I'm then sent to the Netflix app on my phone, so I'm guessing it's a Netflix policy rather than a Roku policy.

Re: Roku Express Static on Startup

I have a 3900 and while I can't recall having the static problem at startup, I have had it when switching back to the Roku from another source, it doesn't happen every time and I wouldn't even say it happens frequently, but it does happen enough to be annoying and the only way to get rid of it is to...

Re: Can't connect to my router

I have a 2710 and just don't use it anymore, it's agonizingly slow and it doesn't support YouTube tv, Directv now and if I remember right HBO is no longer supported either, I doubt it will be long until all major channels drop support. I hate to sound like a shill for Roku, but you really would be b...

Re: Roku Express HDMI to component converter

I'm not using a converter, but my guess would be they explicitly state supporting 1.3 because it's so old at this point, a quick google shows it was released in 2006, even 1.4 is a decade old now so it would be surprising if it wasn't supported and they just don't feel the need to mention it since i...

Re: Roku Express+ will not connect if SSID not broadcast

Fwiw, I just hid my ssid and tested on my Roku Express and it connects fine after a restart and power cycle (unplugging/plugging back in), I also reset network settings on the Express and connected again as Private Network and it worked fine that way too, not much help I realize, but at least you c...

Re: Roku is no longer a neutral platform after today’s Roku OS 9.1 update

These companies like Roku will never stop trying to fix what isn't broken. The home screen is perfectly fine now, if they alter it to focus on The Roku Channel which I don't use and couldn't care less about it will be a big push to make me not buy another Roku device in the future. People said that...

Re: You Tube TV jacking UP price

This is genuinely bad news, I'm currently on You tube tv and like it, but $40 was the max for me, this is going to force me back to Sling. edit - just got the email from YouTube tv about this, if you're on Apple TV it's going up to $55 a month compared to $50 for Roku users, never had an Apple TV s...

Re: Fixing a roku bug is taking a lot of my time

I'm wishing roku would just check for a usb stick on boot up and launch RMP itself I think the problem with that would be most people use the Roku for streaming channels, not playing files from usb, but they still want the convenience of having a usb plugged in, and they would get annoyed at having...

Re: YouTube videos flashing/flickering on Roku Express

I've noticed what might be the same thing (or something similar) on YouTube videos on my Express for a few months now, not videos I've uploaded, just videos I watch, every once in a while the screen goes grey for a second throughout the videos, it's very fast, but clearly noticeable. It seems to hap...

Re: Roku/vimeo live streaming help

I don't know anything about this, and  I'm assuming Vimeo knows what they're talking about, but I wonder why Livestream wouldn't work? It's owned by Vimeo, but at least according to the wiki live events can be broadcast on Roku and there is a Livestream Roku app that appears to be a stand alone app ...
