Re: HDR10+ and Dolby Vision

This is an interesting article from a year and a half ago that says it's possible to implement Dolby Vision completely via software, vs. relying upon a specific hardware chipset. Dolby Vision Via Software The primary issue for Roku, in my opinion, is the licensing fees for implementing Dolby Vision....

Re: Still No 5.1 Sound w/Premier

Nothing else I know this an old thread,  but you are totally wrong!!!  Netflix does stream in Dolby Digital.  I have no problem with my Fire TV or my LG smart to to my Bose 3-2-1 system, which will not do Dolby D...

Re: No more 5.1 Sound -Ultra Stopped Supporting Dolby D

The current ultra never supported DD+ transcode to dd. it has same dolby capabilities as roku 3. it can only passthru. are you saying that playback of dolby encoded files to your avr itself is not working? On streaming aps (Netflix, Amaon, Vudu) it downgrades everything to stereo. Downloaded mkv. f...

Re: No more 5.1 Sound -Ultra Stopped Supporting Dolby D

Rokudale, That's not true. Roku sent me a current model and not only did it not support Dolby D, some downloaded files had no sound, as opposed to being downcoverted to stereo as my original model did. FYI DTS still works fine As a reader, I'm confused with this statement. Are you saying you now ha...

Re: No more 5.1 Sound -Ultra Stopped Supporting Dolby D

What particular apps? Many of the streaming apps are using DD+ now for Dolby, in which case you are going to get PCM 2-channel audio. And you certainly don't have to spend $1000 to get a HT receiver to provide the audio formats you need. Here's a NEW Denon that has all the modern features (4K HDR, e...

Re: Ultra now doesnt have optical output?

You may be able to do HDMI from your Roku to your TV, and if your TV has optical out, run that to the soundbar. But if you just want to play music, you need to keep your TV on no matter what. Good idea but a suboptimal solution. Stupid decision by Roku. Someone thought most of us would never notice...

Re: Roku 8.1 Update

What is the big deal about 8.1 that people are clamoring for? The only thing I saw it did for me was allow me to use HDR with the ROKU on a port that only supports HDR@30.  I have a TV with 4 ports all HDCP 2.2 compliant and all do 4K@60.  Only 2 do HDR@60 and 2 do HDR@30.  So having that ability w...

Vudu's free movies hit you with a max of 2 ads, while Roku channel almost always have 4.

You might want to study the concept of a "loss leader". Vudu free content is their way of keeping you on their platform where they can consistently remind you of their paid/premium content.

Re: ARC Audio

Hi, it's a denon X2300W and tv is LG 47LM620T- ZE To be clear, are you connecting the Roku to the TV, itself, or to the receiver first?   For ARC to work, everything must be connected to the AVR, and then the receiver's HDMI output is plugged into HDMI-1 on the LG TV (the ARC HDMI input). It won't ...
