Re: 2 Rooms with Roku

I am able to resume Netflix and Hulu+ from either of my boxes. I don't think Amazon has that feature, but I'm also not sure I've tried it.

Re: Roku 2 Video Too Dark

Try changing your TV display type for your Roku to 'computer' or whatever your TV calls it (gaming maybe, pc, etc.). I think others have discovered that the Roku outputs the full 0-255 range, rather than the typical range of most playback devices.

Re: Please, help choose

Netflix hands down, they are adding content each day it seems. I've had it for a week now (back again) and seems everyday something new. I cancelled Hulu plus, even before the show starts 30 seconds of commercials. I'll use Crackle as my alternative, it has commercials yes but at least it's free. B...

Re: Roku2 vs Revue

yes but I'm still not clear about it all.. There is little to no reason for an average user to jailbreak an iPad for example. As soon as a new tablet comes out, the first thing to pop up on the web is "don't worry, they just figured out how to root so you can have the android market, or you ca...

Re: Firmware support for Roku 1?

Will Roku continue supporting fixes and improvements to Roku 1 firmware? Sorry if this was covered before. But when I tried searching with the word "support" the search function balked at the word being too common to run a search. Thanks. Yes. Try searching for "pica" which I gu...

Re: Is Bravo available anywhere?

I finally convince my wife to dump cable. We purchased Roku last nigh only to find that her lame Housewives shows are not available. Besides Amazon ($1.99 per episode), are there any other options. As in Desperate Houswives? It's on Hulu. If watching it online isn't okay, it looks like some older e...

Re: Roksbox Not Being Added to Channel List on XDS

Go into the channel store, scroll up to My Channels, and see if Roksbox is listed there. If it is, select it, and choose "Go To Channel" and see if that works. If it's not there, then you may need to try adding it again. Hey, so I removed all channels except for: Netflix, Pandora, USB Med...

Re: Roku @ hotels

Check out what's offered on the Roku. It's possible you could provide entertainment without getting involved with Netflix if that ends up too complicated. I'm sure you could figure out a way to have the box wired securely so that guests couldn't unplug the box, but wireless might work too. Just keep...

Re: Amazon HD

I use Atlantic Broadband... I live in Miami Beach Are you referring to my connection speed, or to my DNS change? I was referring to 17Mbps service being that disabled by their own DNS servers. Glad you got up working for you though. You might even notice improved performance elsewhere as well now.

Re: Pls allow another DD audio ?

I have the 2-XS (in addition to others) connected to my Onkyo PR-SC5507 pre/pro via HDMI. I have verified that this HDMI input properly detects DD signals. I have tried several streams from the Roku that I believe to be DD encoded (HD programs that stream DD via satellite). 5.1 is the selected audi...

Re: Roku 2 XS Powering Off

I have a new Roku 2 XS that seems to power off after a few hours of inactivity. The last 2 mornings when I have turned on the TV it has not had a signal from the Roku. As soon as I press a button on the Roku remote the bouncing Roku logo appears and after a couple of minutes it turns back on. This ...
