Re: [Resolved] - Plex External Subtitles (.srt) files not displaying

Glad to see you got it figured out! I was going to ask a few more "dumb" questions and probably would have thought of that eventually. The "On replay" setting is actually nice for those who don't want the captions on all the time, but may want to go back a few seconds because the...

Re: Plex External Subtitles (.srt) files not displaying

Well, you might not like what I found. That sample worked fine for me using my own channel and own server. Pardon me for asking a stupid question, but you did unzip the downloaded file, right? Open your SRT file in any text editor and it should be readable. If it's full of garbage characters (except...

Those 2 links are the same. I'll take a look and see if it works for me.

I recommend one with a remote control to switch inputs. The automatically switching ones can work for you if your cable box turns off completely, but they are hit or miss.

Re: Plex External Subtitles (.srt) files not displaying

Do you have a link to a sample SRT file that doesn't work? I don't use Plex, but I've been using SRTs for years without a problem. Since it's the underlying firmware that handles the display of subtitles, it shouldn't matter what channel is used for streaming.

Re: Which codecs are passed-through by Roku Media Player?

Make sure your Roku 2 XS audio settings are not set to "Stereo". I wondered why my mother's Roku 2 XS had the same problem and when I switched from "Stereo" (I believe to "Auto", but can't remember for sure) she started getting the 5.1 AC-3 tracks to play. There's "...

Re: "game" manifest entry

 Does it make it so looped roAudioPlayer music stays in memory instead of reloading when looped?  I don't know, but I don't think it has anything to do with that.  I think it has more to do with ensuring audio and video remain in sync, which, judging from comments in the general forum, seems to be ...

Screensavers can't use audio or video components (with the exception of roAudioResource).

Re: Does Roku Inc send 1099 tax forms?

Roku does not sent 1099s for payments made through Paypal (unless it's over $20,000 or something like that). Payments made directly to a bank account (e.g., ad revenue) will be reported on a 1099.

At least that's my experience.

Re: Roku remote fails when WiFi is on

Try getting an HDMI extender; you may be getting interference: https://my.roku.com/hdmi

Also, is your WiFi AP's channel set to "auto" or something similar? If so, try setting it to an explicit channel. Experiment; one channel may be better than others.

Re: Remote Control Needed?

Sometimes using the channel up/down buttons will change inputs once you get to the highest/lowest channel. I have a Samsung TV here somewhere (just moved), so I'll try to dig it out and check. However, I doubt your father would want to use the buttons on the TV to change inputs. What's he using now?...

Re: wrong remaining time on player progress bar

Did you try setting m.video.duration manually to see if it's reflected on the progress bar?
