Re: Roku's integrity problem...

But Roku and streaming is about entertainment, watching a movie without problems... not only about playing tech support on a forum, but sharing outrage. I don't know how else to say this. The channels work fine for the overwhelming majority of people. If they didn't, then trust me, these forums wou...

Re: Roku's integrity problem...

This is ridiculous. The OP never asked for help. He just wanted to blame Roku for content reception problems that could be the fault of the channel provider, OR could be the fault of the OP's own network, so that is absurd. In addition to that there are other bizarre suggestions that the OP might be...

Re: Roku's integrity problem...

This is a toughie, based on the limited information...I'd love for someone to be able to help the OP, but it's gonna take a battle to do it. If your cable goes out, do you call the cable company (the company responsible for delivering the content to you) or do you call Motorola (the manufacturer of...

Re: Roku's integrity problem...

And Roku does state that they are responsible for the channel performance and that homes with 1.5m download capability are good to go... Roku reviews and approves all channels prior to publishing them to the Channel Store to ensure that they are of high quality and function properly . We try to mak...

Re: Roku's integrity problem...

Lots of problems with Roku, Inc's integrity. Institutionally, this company is unconcerned with server service problems. Many of the products are free and I guess you get what you pay for! Yes, problems occur, but this company doesn't have the spine to take responsibility. I've had months of problem...

Re: Roku 3 shows up as a wifi hotspot

This is the first thread I've ever read on these Roku forums, and I'm appalled by the lack of civility here. Seems like half the people participating in this thread are deliberately misleading the conversation ("must be your router"; "return your device"; "call support"...

The responses were good, there was nothing "silly". I have no idea where that came from.

Re: MKV from Blu-Ray works, MKV from DVD Does Not!!

Hmmm...maybe so, but I don't know how I managed to avoid doing so with the BD to MKV. I used the same settings, AFAIK. How do I avoid this with MakeMKV when converting DVDs? Thanks. Most Blu-Rays are already encoded in h.264. You are probably not re-encoding the video at all, so the DVD video would...

Re: Netflix users profiles coming this summer

From what I can tell, it isn't going to allow multiple Queues, just targeted recommendations, and recently watched. I could be misinterpreting though.

Re: Earbuds make my remote stop working

I use it for about 5-10 minutes and the sound quits in the earbuds and the remote does not respond. Just to be certain, after you replace the batteries (with new ones, not some out of the back of a drawer) that you can only use it for 5-10 minutes, then need to replace the batteries again? Meaning ...
