Re: 24P with OS8

Well Blu-Rays (including UHD) have been auto using this on TVs that support it all these years and people usually gush over Blu-Ray. Aside from higher bitrate that the Disc offers of course. If your TV can properly handle it then any flicker should be moot. It's closer to what you view at the Cinema...

Re: Movies Anywhere - Your new digital movie locker (get some free movies too)

Once you connect your media accounts all the Movies / TV shows are also available on the other services too....

I'd assume more Roku support for the Movies Anywhere channel will come soon.... Until then you can still use Amazon, Vudu or Google Play.

Re: Netflix raising prices

It's not the point of a dollar. I would not complain if Netflix did not take away about 90% of what I was watching. Yes this year there is nothing left. I hate most of the original content for it's mature themes of sex and swearing. Really NF should be getting more licensed content not more origina...

Re: Roku Ultra - Missing Auto-PowerOff

I think HDMI-CEC can detect changing video or power source and turn itself off for like a Blu-Ray player.... Would be nice if it went back to the Home screen for Roku's.

It might get added but look how long it took for HDMI-CEC & 24hz features to be added. ;)

Keep suggesting it though. :)

Re: Netflix raising prices

There was mention in the press that Disney's thinking about a $5/month price point for their Disney on-demand streaming service in 2019.  Surprisingly low, could be worthwhile to add? Uh.... Remind us in 2019.... If so that's a great deal but until it gets closer to the date it's not set in stone y...

You have Hulu, Amazon, and such. You have options....

Re: Rollout status of The Roku Channel?

I find Vudu's free section good too. On both quality (many Movies are in HD and surround) and the ads aren't as bad as some.

Re: No output on Premiere+ after software 8.0.0 update

If your TV is 720P then also set the Cable Box to 720P for reasons I explained above. ;)

Wait it installed but not appearing?

Try uninstalling it, rebooting and doing a channel search for The Roku Channel....

Re: USB Power, OK for Roku Stick to shut off with TV?

If you wanna save power get the power strips that are designed to cut off the vampire sucking that off'd devices do. Or unplug the strip each time.

If that's the goal that is. ;)

Sadly the only way is to check the the New or Featured section each day till it appears....
