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 ...

Re: Help-- Roku XD displays fine but Ultra doesn't over HDMI

When I looked up his TV specs, it was noted that the component input did not accept 720p, so using an HDMI-Component converter will only give 480p at best. I'd hate to be living back in the SD world again for all content!  :lol: This is what I found on an old post from plasmatvbuyingguide -  Thanks...

Re: Help-- Roku XD displays fine but Ultra doesn't over HDMI

You could try an HDMI-Component converter box. Mixed reviews on this one -  some say it works great, others have different experiences. No issues with the converter...it's more a case of what devices are being used. So, it's a YMMV. Read the reviews. Free returns. $60. https://express.google.com/u/0...

Re: 4K HDR 60hz issue - Roku or something else?

ATC is right - you need to enable "Enhanced" mode in your 4K settings on the Denon.  By default (Standard Mode), it only passes 4K 30 HDR OR 4K 60 8-bit HDR. You're going to want/need 4K 60 10-12 bit HDR via "Enhanced Mode" See here from the manual: https://image.ibb.co/fg5T5d/De...

Re: Projector only supports limited RGB, but Roku outputs full RGB

Man, Roku doesn't seem to give a fig about how customers actually want to use a TV. I don't have your specific model, but Roku firmware does not offer the same set of options that every other TV on the market offers. If your able, you get a refund and trade it in for a real TV before you run into e...

Re: Broken Roku Ultra? Why does everything downmix to PCM stereo??

You will not get 5.1 audio on Netflix. Netflix encodes their audio in Dolby Digital Plus (and stereo). Actually, this is the reason for your issues. The Amazon Firestick 4K will down convert Dolby Digital Plus and output standard Dolby Digital if you have it set for that. The Roku Ultra (latest ver...
