Re: Problem with Roku Stick on Samsung UN48JS9000FXZA

If your other TV is working OK then it sounds like a home network issue.  Perhaps the router is too far away from this TV or there is some interference.  Consider installing Netgear WiFi Analytics app (or something similar) on your smartphone to check your WiFi signal near the TV.   Also if your TV ...

Re: Roku Ultra: First Button Click Ignored

Yes, I have experienced a similar issue.  It doesn't happen all the time and is hit and miss.  At first I thought I wasn't pressing the button hard enough but that isn't the case.  Having used the new Ultra for a few weeks it seems to be less annoying. I'm not quite sure but I think the pattern I se...

Re: Can the remote turn on/off my TV, while controlling Soundbar Volume?

I just installed my new Streaming Stick. The remote has paired correctly with my soundbar (which I didn't even realize would happen) and is correctly controlling its volume. The power button doesn't appear to do anything (including control the soundbar's power), and I want to know if I can set it u...

Re: New Roku Hardware Announced. 4K/HDR Stick - Roku OS8

 The question is:  should I get the 2017 Ultra with the optical-out deleted; or look for possible final clearance pricing on the 2016 Ultra with the optical-out included.   The removal of the optical port on the Ultra is not an issue for most assuming the TV has an optical audio output port.  If th...

Re: Mute Using the Roku Remote?

Unfortunately there is no Roku mute function.  I use the pause button since there is no mute button. I'm very disappointed that Roku seems to have done a minimal design effort with the new remotes.  IMO to make the Roku remote fully functional there needs to be a mute button that triggers closed cap...

Re: Roku TV jams my wifi network.

You might try using a different Ethernet cable.  Also try using a different Ethernet port on the router.

Re: Streaming Stick+ Remote Questions

I doubt that all the functions of the new remote (Voice remote with TV power and volume buttons) will work with the 2016 Roku stick.  Assuming you could pair a 2017 Roku stick remote with the 2016 stick, the Voice Search function isn’t likely to work.  The programming of the remote for TV p...

Roku Ultra streaming player (4660) - Initial Setup

I wasn't expecting my preorder from Best Buy until the 8th but for some reason my Ultra 4660 came today. Setup with my Sony Bravia tv was relatively painless.  When first started up, software was updated to version 8.0.0 build 3085. After the update/restart the system scanned for my display fresh ra...

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

Since the Roku 7.7 update my Roku 3 has been having occasional issues where the Pluto channel gets stuck on streaming the audio only.  I'll be watching Pluto for a period of time, then when I hit the Home key the Roku Home screen is displayed, however the audio from the Pluto channel continues to pl...

Roku OS 7.7 pushed to my Roku Premiere+ today

So far the only issue I have is with the ViewLocal app. After the Roku 7.7 update the ViewLocal app is freezing every few seconds and is completely unwatchable. 
All my other 11 apps are working fine with 7.7

Re: DirecTV Now (finally) on (some) Roku Players

DirecTV Now is working great on my Roku 3 and Roku Premiere+, picture quality is great with no buffering issues.  I'm disappointed that currently the DirecTV Now app is not compatible with my 1 year old Sharp RokuTV.

Re: RokuTV running 7.5.0 build 4111-13 - ViewLocal issue

No response from anyone?   I assume the ViewLocal sync problem is a Roku issue since the problem only occurs on RokuTV's.  Is this a known issue for RokuTV build 4111-13 or does a trouble ticket need to be created?

RokuTV running 7.5.0 build 4111-13 - ViewLocal issue

For some reason both my Sharp and TCL Roku TV’s are having major audio/video sync issues with certain channels when using the ViewLocal app.  When watching NBC or CBS the audio may be out-of-sync anywhere from a few seconds to 30 seconds or more.  Initially the audio/video will be in sync, however t...
