Re: Mah Jongg - New game in the Channel Store!

I thought about the $1.99 price tag for over a week. The programmer did an excellent job. For those not familiar with mah jong, there are free versions on line to learn this addicting game. My only complaint on this version is it is sometimes difficult to see the depth. In video there is a trade off...

Re: Since Software Upgrade, can't connect to Channel Store

power cycle the roku and go to the channel store right away.

Pandora has free accounts. You need to join to set up your categories.

Re: Netflix combining TV show seasons

Combining is a good idea for the Netflix web site. Neat and organized. Combining makes TV seasons on the Roku sucks. Roku needs to move fast on an update. Besides the problems mentioned in the posts above, I am seeing 'content unavailable' quite often. So then I get out and wait another minute for t...

Re: Crackle Updated

Would def be a great channel if I could actually watch something. :( Which content have you tried and what types of problems are you having. We're told there were intermittent issues in the past couple of days but that things are looking pretty good now. Day 1 Cheap Detective, entire movie played, ...

Seasons should not be combined.

Re: Green screen

I have had the green screen only twice.
Jiggling the HDMI cable at the roku fixed it.
I believe the problem to be the HDMI connector in the ROKU is losing contact with some of the pins in the HDMI cable.

Re: Way to turn off HD quality videos but leave HDTV setting

Being able to set the max dots and/or bandwidth should be a high priority. ROKU should have a setting for the Player that could limit all the Channels installed on the Player. Netflix should have a setting that would let the user select the Max stream the Player could request from Netflix. Both shou...

Re: What is the delay in displaying Netflix Subtitles?

British Movies and TV might be pretty good if I could read what they are supposed to be saying.
I did watch Ondine, gave it 4 stars, but have no idea what most of the characters said.
I hear the laugh track on the comedies, but see nothing funny, and haven't the slightest idea what the joke might be.

Re: HOGOWORM DUNGEON - free demo now available

I find level 2 too difficult with the roku controller buttons. They are far apart and fairly hard to press for a game controller. The jump of difficulty between 1 and 2 feels like there should have been 1 or 3 levels in between. Possible options that might make it easier for us lamers might be a hal...

Re: My Name Is Earl: Season 2 "Content Unavailable"

I had worked my way through most of the episodes in season 2, when suddenly it disappeared, content un-available. This was between finishing watching an episode, and attempting to start the next. The season is still available on a PC, so the problem would appear to be the netflix database the roku u...

Re: Video Poker Game Suggestion:

i would like assurance that the 5 draw cards were already selected. When throwing away an inside straight, I often receive the card that would have filled it as the next card off the deck. This makes me wonder about the honesty of the deal. Also when throwing away 1 card I often receive a card with ...

Re: How much of an aggrivation is Roku?

When I first got a roku is had a consistent 1.5Mb roadrunner connection. This is a 3 dot connection. On a 37" LCD this is an acceptable display. Load times were longer, but playing movies worked fine. My brother had the same type of connection and never upgraded, he is still completely satisfie...
