Re: Is Nowhereman/RokuChris done with Roku?

The thread was 171 pages and spanned 8 years, and other threads have been closed (by the previous forum mod) when getting large like that. Looks like that last ridiculous post put it over the top in the mod's eyes. I haven't seen enough to buy into the conspiracy mindset.

Re: Default installed apps

One thing that would be cool - if offered as an option - is to have the ORDER of the apps the same on all devices. Again, only if this was optional and not manadatory, of course.

Re: Netflix Atmos comes to Roku TV's so....

It's up to Netflix. Nothing Roku can do about it. Yes, Netflix is really taking their time with their rollout. One more reason I cancelled my Netflix account.  Curious - has Netflix or Roku said as much regarding which devices can utilize Atmos and who's the arbiter of such? Honestly, without knowi...

Re: Hello Roku Community

Secret recordings from the job interview: "As the newest person at Roku - and consequently the low person on the proverbial pole - you'll have to deal with the miscreants in the Roku forum. Have no fear, however. We're a growing company, so you should only have to do this for a few months."...

Re: Release 9.1 killed my Roku. SOLVED

Great...happy streaming. While not desirable, at least you'll know in the future the steps you had to go through to restore audio/video if this happens again.

He's been posting here about his/her issue: https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=153006. Ok, well, it's not helpful to create what's tantamount to a duplicate thread. Sounds more like a rant, then. Looks like he/she was using optical with transcoding in this system before, unless someth...

Not enough information here.   ⋅ What AVR (make/specific model)?  ⋅ Tried different port on AVR?  ⋅ Reset (briefly change settings and then change back) AVR?  ⋅ Completely power off AVR so it's not in standby but absolutely completely off (pull the plug) and t...

Re: Roku Ultra upgrade?

I would turn OFF "Sync", as that's only for devices supporting the proprietary LG Sound Sync system. I'm more than sure your Marantz doesn't do that. You might want to set Sound Out to Audio Out (Optical/HDMI ARC) / Internal TV Speaker + Audio Out (Optical) Once that's set, you have the op...

Re: Roku Ultra upgrade?

Since the question is really about which is the best 4K device for your OLED set, I'd go with the latest-gen Apple TV. Why? Because it offers Dolby Vision HDR vs. just standard HDR-10. As far as I know, the Shield doesn't offer this (or at least didn't as recently as January of this year).   Of cour...

Re: Poor color quality to video

I found a non-Roku posting about someone with your series set that had the purplish tint. The online repair people thought it was an internal issue with the TV, but the person who had the issue eventually found out it was a cable issue. Don't get caught up on "but it works fine with other devic...

Re: Roku Express+ will not connect if SSID not broadcast

Just curious - what possible benefit do you think you get from hiding your SSID? Anyone who really wants to hack could very easily sniff out the SSID/Network, anyway, so who are you hiding it from?  Your actual network isn't hidden at all. Only the network name is.  Here's but one of many articles o...

Re: Night mode / Volume leveling

Why would one need night mode on earbuds? They are already stereo-only, and you control the volume via the remote. Perhaps leveling mode might be worthwhile.

Re: Audio Drop-outs with Roku Premiere+ / v9.0

I'm not seeing that behavior on my P+ v9.  I'd suggest rebooting it, for starters, and try a different HDMI cable.

Re: HDR Not working

It's not the same receiver, but my Pioneer Elite VSX-45 and Roku Premiere + work fine in HDR mode.
