Re: Roku, AirPlay, Sports, and Windows Media Center

Depending on exactly what you use it for, you might be able to replace WMC with Plex.

Re: I don't understand the value proposition

Someone please help me understand the value proposition of a Roku box. I received one as a gift, but currently plan on exchanging it for something else. I have an active cable subscription (which I do not plan to eliminate), DVD player that supports streaming, as well as an Xbox that supports strea...

Re: Isn't Roku eating all your bandwidth ?

Isn't Roku eating all your bandwidth , I have 150 GB per month if I just watch the Glenn Beck and none of the other shows I don't know for sure how much bandwidth I use. For his show but they only push an HD stream to the Roku no way to dumb it down for less bandwidth. With a computer you can chang...

Re: Glenn Beck GBTV, Loading, Please Wait

This IS a support forum AND a general discussion (specific to the topics of Roku and internet streaming) forum, but the forum guidelines have entries about trolling, posting off-topic, and also supporting Roku users. I'd suggest both the 'joke' post and the back-and-forth replies to it would all ru...

Re: Glenn Beck GBTV, Loading, Please Wait

This isn't a support forum, .......................... Then what are all these people with the pesky support issues doing here? Ah, er, getting help with their Roku? I didn't say a person couldn't get help from other users here, just that it's not specifically a support forum. And why is the path f...

Re: Glenn Beck GBTV, Loading, Please Wait

Between the hours of 8am and 6pm, the Glenn Beck TV Network is in direct communication with the Ordetaqs from Planet Reijer. The station is using up most of the available bandwidth to download tomorrow's programming. I would suggest watching the channel at 4am like you are used to, after the produc...

Re: So You Think You Can Dance? On Roku?

But, back to the original question - I did see SYTYCD on hulu plus - just not sure if it is on the Roku Hulu Plus, but you can easily find out. Many other shows, too. Between Hulu+, Netflix, and even a la carte shows on Amazon, you will still be WAY ahead of the curve. Is not all H+ content availab...

Re: Jackass 3 Promotional ad-My 5 year old is learning to re

I turned on the roku so that my children - 5, 3, and 1 years old could watch Mr. Roger's Neighborhood on amazon on demand. At the bottom of the screen there is an advertisement for Jackass 3 on the epix channel. My 5 year old is learning to read and advertisements like this make me uncomfortable. C...

Re: Netflix - Big Changes Are Coming Soon

I haven't seen anything that says users will have to start from scratch when the services are split. Neither have I, and I'd like to assume that they'll copy the ratings over. With all the other things they've botched up recently, I'm not as confident as I'd like to be about that, on the other hand...

Re: Netflix - Big Changes Are Coming Soon

Separate ratings? The streaming and DVD titles haven't had much overlap yet, so I have a hard time considering that some kind of big issue. Virtually all streaming titles are also available as dvds on Netflix(err...Qwikster) (there are some streaming-only exceptions, but the vast majority of stream...

Re: Netflix - Big Changes Are Coming Soon

Yes, this will free up funds from Qwickflix to Netflix to get more and/or better content. It will probably allow the two to be viewed more appropriately for accounting reasons. Will allow Qwickflix to die without affecting the bottom line of Netflix. I don't see how this will negatively affect consu...

Re: Buying a Roku for Hulu Plus

So...if I'm continuing to have problems with Hulu+ (reboots, lockups, long delays between button press and response) what should I do? Remove the channel and add it again?
