Re: The Roku Forums and Spam

I wonder if they could limit the number of posts a new user can make in their first 24 hours of membership to say 3 posts???

Re: The Roku Forums and Spam

Well, he would only be blocking the IP address of a Proxy server that allows spammers to use their service. No great loss if you ask me. Trust me - been there, done that, have the autographed T-Shirt. Trying to control your spam problem by blocking IP addresses is a futile exercise. I've spent coun...

Re: The Roku Forums and Spam

I hope he blocks the user at the IP level. Probably already masking his IP through a proxy - and when you start doing that you end up blocking non-spammers and we wouldn't want that.

Re: How does changing device resolution affect video bandwid

Kinda depends on how good the TV is at upscaling. If you have a 1080p television and it does a real good job at upconversion, then the picture would look good on it even if you only got SD speeds. If the TV is poor at upscaling then it would not look too great.

Re: Why does Fox News Sunday have constant playback problems

I can appreciate the real answer there Basil. Sounds like something my younger brother would have said to me. You mean like, my Mac Plus won't do three-dimensional, animated modeling? Well, I guess I'm going to have to make a decision whether I continue with Roku technology because I can't be buyin...

Re: Performance issues after 5.0 firmware update Roku 2 XS

Is it too much to ask to give us the choice of which firmware version to use on the device we paid for? That probably won't happen. Roku isn't going to want to support multiple firmware versions, and I wouldn't really blame them. They don't have to support anything but the current version. It requi...

Re: 2 TVs on 1 Roku?

Before I knew that cable (which I got rid of. Hooray.) was going to be needing cable boxes in every room I remodeled a bathroom - and put a small LED TV in the room. I, of course, was not (and really could not) put a cable box in the bathroom. Cable hooked it to the TV in my attic (yes, I have a TV...

You are saying that you do not have a banner ad on the bottom of the main screen? And no one has blocked the ad server at the router? Because this would be highly unlikely, and a total fluke.

Re: Help finding channels

I just bought a Roku last week. While I like it for the most part, I feel it is false advertising to claim over 600 channels, especially since it appears at least half are religious channels (does anyone even WATCH any of them). And most of the other free ones are crap. Well it is still in the retu...

Re: Roku 2XS Netflix No DD 5.1+

I am using a Roku 2XS with the firmware released in May of 2013 (i believe it is version 5). Anyway if I watched a Netflix program that showed DD+ 5.1 in the description I would get DD+ 5.1 on my stereo. This is no longer the case now I get PCM 2 ch stereo. I watched The Hunger Games off of Amazon ...
