Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

Just looked at my Ultra 4640R 8.1.0 4145-29 and the aquarium screensaver has been replaced by city stroll.  Earlier this year I had an Ultra 4660R that also had the aquarium screensaver.

Re: Home screen tears after Google Play Movies

I'm able to reproduce this bug using my Ultra 4640 software 8.1.0 build 4145-29.  The graphic tearing/jitter seems to be most pronounced scrolling through the My Feed section, but there seems to be at least minor flickering/jitter in all menus of the home screen.  Opening and exiting another app als...

Re: Slow streaming

I've noticed similar behavior.  This is a relative new streaming service and hopefully they will work out any bugs Does Roku automatically upgrade any updates Yes, the Roku automatically checks for system and channel updates once per day.  You can also manually check for updates by going to: Settin...

Re: Slow streaming

For me, once a channel loads in Directv Now, it generally continues to stream without any interruption, and the video quality seems quite good.  Although, recently there may have been more rebuffering instances than in the past. Hopefully, ATT will work to fine tune the Directv Now Roku app to impro...

Re: Slow streaming

The Directv Now app performs very poorly on my Roku Ultra 4640.  It takes much longer to load than any other Roku app I've ever used.  Changing to another channel takes much longer than it should, and I frequently get the message about my internet connection underperforming.  However, it's clearly t...

Re: Broken Roku Ultra? Why does everything downmix to PCM stereo??

See post from RokuDale from one week ago July 23, 2018. DD+ to DD transcoding must come from the device. The port itself does not do it.  I have email confirmation of new transcoding in current Ultra from Roku support. RokuDale confirms that the Ultra 4660 (2017 model) cannot transcode DD+ to DD in...

Re: No more 5.1 Sound -Ultra Stopped Supporting Dolby D

Hi, I'm afraid the the latest update has *caused* this problem for me. I think I've read this thread carefully so that I'm not missing something obvious. I have a Roku Ultra 4640X, with optical audio out going to an Onkyo receiver that doesn't have HDMI in, so that's not an option. As of the latest...

Re: Broken Roku Ultra? Why does everything downmix to PCM stereo??

Roku info page "How to set up your Roku streaming player for surround sound" now has a new Note under the "More about audio formats" subhead that says: ⋅  Note: The Roku Ultra* provides an additional option to transcode Dolby Digital Plus to Dolby Digital. This allows ...

Re: No more 5.1 Sound -Ultra Stopped Supporting Dolby D

After receiving the update, Dolby 5.1 over HDMI is now working for me again, too.  The sleep bug I was experiencing in my setup was also fixed. I noticed that menu sounds are still being silenced over optical once the DD decoder has been engaged.  Like I said previously, not that big of a deal to me...

Re: Roku has persistent CEC signal, preventing other devices from functioning correctly

If you have build 4137 of Roku OS version 8.1, what you're experiencing could possibly be related to the sleep bug and other HDMI issues present in this build. Build 4145 of 8.1 was first issued yesterday, and I've seen that some Roku Ultra users are saying it fixed the sleep issues for them.  Howev...

Re: How to enable DD+ to DD transocding on Ultra

Yes, I tried the s/pdif setting with both DD and DD/DTS.  Did you try removing the optical cable from the AV receiver just to make sure you don't hear any audio after doing so?  If you do hear audio, this would mean that the HDMI audio feed is somehow coming through. If you don't hear any audio, th...

Re: HDCP error

The 8.1 update certainly seems to have changed the way the Roku OS monitors HDMI connections (HDCP, HDMI-CEC, etc.).  Here are a couple reddit threads where a Roku rep says they have an update coming out to address HDCP issues (not sure if they're only referring to certain Roku devices): https://www...

Re: Broken Roku Ultra? Why does everything downmix to PCM stereo??

Thanks for your input. I think that the first thing I will try is using an optical cable. Andy I should also note that some 2016 Roku Ultra users were experiencing loud screeching noises when using the optical output.  However, a couple users said this was fixed for them in the 8.1 update.  Here is...

Re: Broken Roku Ultra? Why does everything downmix to PCM stereo??

I spent 45 minutes chatting with a roku tech earlier today before reading all of this. She tried to tell me that the reason that I stopped getting DD was because of my AVR. After that, I searched and found this thread, which has helped me understand. I have an ultra 4640X hooked up to an AVR that i...
