Re: Captcha...................GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

The point is it's not needed.
Period.
Would it matter if it's one or 10?
It's a ridiculous technology that has been proven not to work.
I wonder how corporations would react if I added a "Captcha" feature on my credit card transactions?.

Captcha...................GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

So now we have to pass Captcha quizes to add private channels?.
WTF is up with all these websites adding the "I am not a robot" thing?
I HATE IT.
Doesn't work. Robots can actually get past it, so what good is it other than to raise blood pressure?
PLEASE do away with this Roku.

Netflix throwing me to home screen again

Arghhhhh.
Anyone know how to fix that?
Between that and their annoying auto play it may be time to cancel Netflix.

One month free Directtv?

So I buy a new Roku express plus which says it comes with one month free of Showtime and one month free of Directtv. I"m allegedly supposed to agree to e-mails so as I get the code to activate these offers. Nowhere was I prompted to agree to e-mails, no e-mails have been received. Roku has had ...

Netflix auto play GRRRRRRRRRRRR

So I buy a Roku express for use on vacation. I go into the Netflix app and before I can even get to "My list" the Roku starts playing "Jerry before Seinfeld". Now, Jerry before Seinfeld is NOT on my list. Nor will it be. How do I stop this short of unplugging everything and tossi...

So, anyway....Roku Express

Took the advice off a member here and bought a Roku express for YouTube vids. I actually bought two of them. While they work better on YouTube than my Roku 2 xs, they both fail miserably at audio/video sync issues. It's a kin to watching old Godzilla movies where the person speaks and you hear it 5 ...

Re: Roku make anythign that doesn't spy on us?

Roku is effectively a "black box" on your network - there's no way to know what data it's collecting and reporting back, but you've still got those on your network. That's what I was questioning. Full disclosure, I don't think the Roku is "spying" on anyone, just putting it out ...

Re: Roku make anythign that doesn't spy on us?

How is voice search spying on you? You have to activate it - it's not like Siri or Alexa that can be always-on.  I think it's funny that you're worried about voice search, but seem to have no issues that every Roku you've owned is closed-source and attached to your home network (therefore technical...

Roku make anythign that doesn't spy on us?

Time to upgrade my two Roku's. I'm troubled by the fact that it appears ALL new Roku's have voice search, meaning they are ALL at minimum, capable of spying on me. Does Roku make a streaming box currently that DOES NOT spy on me? If not, no money for Roku. I'll either buy another streamer or not use...

YouTube TV? Not a chance with Roku owners

There is nothing that has ever been invented, conceived or conjured up by man that is more frustrating than trying to watch YouTube on a Roku. It takes 30 seconds to play the ad, even the one's you can theoretically "skip" take another 30 seconds to stop playing. Then another 30 seconds to...

Friday I turn on my Roku and I get the message "You are not authorized to view this content". On EVERY app I tried, Even apps I PAY FOR like Amazon and Netflix. Knowing Roku's history at my house, I re-boot the box and all is well again. However, it got me wondering "Can Roku block ev...

YouTube kicking me back to the Roku home screen lately

For the past week or two, many YouTube video's boot me back to the Roku home screen.
Video's on the NFL app now are doing the same.
I have the identical issue on two Roku 2 units.
Anyone else having this issue?

YouTube, NFL apps tossing me back to home screen

In the past week or two I've noticed many YouTube video's are now sending me out of YouTube completely after they begin to play and back to the Roku home screen. It's not my Roku as I have two and it's doing this on both devices (Roku 2 xs). Yesterday, NFL app started tossing me back to the Roku hom...
