Re: Cannot log into Roku Android application

You don't need the Android application at all for using a Roku.  It is optional.  Side-loading the APK is not really supported by Roku. You will need to have a Roku account to complete the Roku setup but you don't need the Android application for that.  Instead, you can create the Roku account just ...

Re: Original Roku 3 interfering with computer screen

Ok, If it is plugged into different HDMI ports then not HDCP. The Pavilion P7-1030 should be using the video graphic integrated into the Intel processor.  You may want to try using Intel's own driver update tool at: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/intel-driver-support-assistant.html ...

Re: PS Vue is only channel not playing - error code

Do you have any other device like a smart phone or PS4 to try using Vue on? I am curious to know if the problem only exists on the Roku or also comes up on other devices. If you can recreate the problem on other devices, you really should be contacting Vue support. If the problem is specific to the ...

Re: Original Roku 3 interfering with computer screen

Shooting from the hip, I think I have an idea what might be going on.  I want to blame HDCP because it is developed by the Intel and I mostly enjoy blaming them. However, you are light on details and it would be nice to better understand the configuration before attempting to troubleshoot. What mode...

Re: Ultraviolet shutting down July 31st, 2019

. I am hoping that at some point UV will also work out a deal with Amazon for an option to link UV movies into Amazon accounts. UV is shutting down, which is the point of this thread. No more deals to be made. From the UV website: "...  UltraViolet and retailers will be working together to max...

Re: Ultraviolet shutting down July 31st, 2019

I just linked my UV account to my VUDU account so some of my UV library is now provided by VUDU.  As an added bonus, I can now watch those movie on Roku.  On the downside, VUDU seems to have decided that all my UV movies should be only provided in standard definition despite VUDU have HD versions of...

Re: roku media player support Cyrillic?

If you build your own Roku Channel then you can package a different TrueType Font into the channel. It would be nice if the Roku channels could allow for the selection of TTF files from the USB drive but it looks like that currently isn't an option.  If Roku does choose to extend the typography API ...

Re: Those Pesky Lower Four Remote Buttons

Can we at least make the HBO NOW button a little more intelligent?   If I have HBO Go channel installed because I'm already paying for HBO through a cable provider, then I am not going to also pay for HBO NOW.  If I ever uninstall HBO Go, I am fine with it reverting to encouraging me to install the ...

Re: Cable-cutters be advised:

Re: [Official] 2018 Fall Launch - Roku Premiere/Premiere+ Feedback

I replace my Roku 3 with the Ultra as thr 3 could not support YouTube TV app. After a few days I started to see the HDCP error screen. Tried the usual steps but it still occurred. A forum post suggested updating the firmware to v 9.0.0 This removed the error but now the screen blinks black every fe...

Re: [Official] Roku OS 8.2

We are using HLS multi-bitrate streams hosted by Cloudflare. Cloudflare supports both HLS and MPEG-DASH.  Out of curiosity, has you tried pointing the tester tool to the DASH stream. The DASH sample URL for the same video seems to be:  https://videodelivery.net/a38818fb7de31928f4203250a6650c78/mani...

Re: [Official] Roku OS 8.2

Re: Different Episodes on diffent Roku's

Installing a channel on any device on the same Roku account will install that same channel on all the devices.  However, authenticating a subscription on one device does *NOT* carry over to other devices. So, if you install FXNOW channel on the Roku Stick then it will also appear on the TV in the Li...

Re: [Official] 2018 Fall Launch - Roku Premiere/Premiere+ Feedback

I agree that 5 GHz is preferable for wireless connections, but it isn't a requirement for the device to be 802.11 AC. Roku has had dual band wireless all the way back in a few of their first generation boxes (these new players will be 7th generation). Even with what you can buy today, the Streaming...
