Re: New Roku 2 Has Audio / Video Sync Problem Streaming Amaz

Are other programs and/or other channels out of sync too, or is it just that one program?
If you play the first episode of the program again, is it in or out of sync?

Yes, Roku sells the buttons to channel owners for advertising, so they can't be changed.

Re: Roku's Major Connection Problems

Roku doesn't agree with you. Idiot-proofing as much as possible is what Roku does best.
They design the device for use by 6 year olds and 80 year old grannys.

Re: notes from a first time user

After the initial Roku signup, just delete the CC info. from your account. I haven't had a CC on my account for years.

Re: SD card matrix

No channel requires the use of an SD card, and as noted, most users won't need one at all.
If you have more than a hundred or so channels installed, you may want to consider using a card, but even then you don't really have to.

Rdio button still brings up the channel which is disabled. If the channel has been discontinued why does it still open? Are they going to remove the channel or not?

That would be a question for Pandora, since they acquired Rdio's assets.

Re: Reasonable local stations alternative to Tune In?

Here's the workaround for long TuneIn buffering. It works every time for me:
Up Arrow (return to the station button)
Select (press button and return to the station screen. Control now says "Pause", as if it is playing, but I can't hear anything)
Select Pause
Select Resume

Re: Roku not streaming Netflix, it's simple fix

^ Delete the channel, reboot the box, reinstall the channel is the recommend sequence.

Have you unplugged the power and then plugged it back in to restart the box?

Re: Screen reads "STB225"

Before buying a used Roku on Ebay or other sites, it's a good idea to check the chart here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roku
so you know what your getting. I'd stay away from first generation boxes. Many newer channels won't run on them, and Roku no longer supports them.

Re: Old Roku 2500X stuck on 6.2. Should I care?

It appears that almost everyone that posts has some sort of problem, but perhaps that has skewed my perception. Quite likely. People come here because they have a problem, so the posts are indeed skewed. I have no problems with 7.0 on any of my boxes. PS: A factory reset should be done only as a la...
