Re: The B/W channel endless commercial loop

I noticed it about a month ago and deleted the channel. At first I thought it was the time of the day but checking at different times convinced me it was a major problem. I deleted all Octave apps at that time. It was working fine before that, for the several years I had it. Nothing to write home a...

Re: We have updated our policies

Also, the OP claims* not complying means he can no longer use it. According to his own post (and remember he admits he is paraphrasing), he just can't add new channels. Nothing is stopping him from using the old channels...I have an OTT (which I also bought 5 years ago) that won't let me add anythi...

Re: We have updated our policies

At the time you bought your Roku you agreed that they could update/change their terms of service at any time and without notice. This is standard practice of virtually all software companies even though the TOS is only of quite limited ability to be enforced. You are NOT required to agree to this b...

We have updated our policies

Roku gives me this message as I try to add a private channel "We have updated our policies, you must agree to the new policies if you want to continue to use your Roku". I'm paraphrasing, but come on Roku. I bought my Roku's over 5 years ago. Roku, as a company should NOT be able to dictat...

Re: New Channel: Easy Listening

[quote="dfgsrzwer"]As I said, no reasonable person can argue this is Roku's fault...actually read the posts you are responding to rather than jump on people you THINK are stifling you. One poster gave you the benefit of the doubt that you did not think this was Roku's fault. After reading ...

Re: New Channel: Easy Listening

It doesn't hurt to complain here (except that it gives false hope that something may be done, and it wastes time), but it most likely won't help either. People shoulđ learn to pick their battles, and not just vent because they can. Just accept it and move on. Again, there re LITERALLY thousnds of a...

Re: New Channel: Easy Listening

I guess that would make sense.......except, it's not a private channel. That means Roku approved it. One might imagine there would be some sort of checks and balances system in place so that if a channel is called "Easy Listening" it actually conform to the name. Commercial assault is har...

Re: New Channel: Easy Listening

So what? It is a poorly designed commercial channel and this surprises you? Roku has made it easy to write channels and that means that there are bound to be badly designed ones. Just either do not load it in the first place or, if you do, remove it and move on. I have only found about 21 channels ...

New Channel: Easy Listening

I add it. Load it up. Commercial. (figures) Then Tony Bennett singing "Fly me to the moon" Then a commercial. And another commercial. And another one. And another one. Then a group singing "Dream a little dream of me" with tortoises. Commercial. Commercial. Commercial. Commercial...

Re: I thought I was in favor of opening cable boxes until

First off, Google, in case you hadn't noticed, is already rich. Secondly, our government almost NEVER does ANYTHING to benefit you or me. It's always to benefit a corporation or large donor. Anyone who thinks otherwise needs to research more. Our government does not care one iota about you or me. It...

Re: Youtube practically unusable post Roku 7.0 Update

YouTube was practically unusable BEFORE the update, so I shutter to see what it becomes next. YouTube (unofficial) on the "What's on" app worked flawlessly. The "official" version never has. it freezes and locks constantly, especially if you try to pause or FF. It freezes the Rok...

Re: HBO Now on main menu

They do not have my permission to add or remove anything from MY player. What part of that do all you fan boys not understand? They don't need your permission. The EULA, which covers the software and updates gives Roku the "right" to change the interface however they see fit through updat...

Re: HBO Now on main menu

Willful ignorance. You choose to attack me rather than seeing the very real issue. Millions just like you out there globally. Explain the real issue. Explain so I can be less ignorant. Also, yes, you bought and own the hardware, but you are subscribed to the Channel Store and get Firmware updates. ...
