Re: Unknown screensaver

I believe this is a new cityscape Roku screensaver that replaced the default bouncing Roku in the 6.2 firmware. Hey, The Endless...probably right. I noticed about time of 6.2 update. However, I still always have the 'bounching Roku' every time a problem needs to reset my screen. The 'cityscape' see...

Nowhere TV

Anyone...any info. Noticed this past few weeks that 'CBS sunday morning and CBS today' were sporadic (on and off). Now, this date, both come up with 'no content' noted. Has NowhereMan maybe moving it to Nowhere Cast ? Not as present listing it within that channel lineup. Thanks. :? Both of above up ...

Re: "Play USB" Channel versus "Roku Media Player" Channel

[quote="jrku2user"]I was disappointed when I first got the roku2xs; I had been told it could play video from a USB thumbdrive...and then not a single .avi I have kept from the last 10 years ever worked. I'm not interested in running a plex server off a pc for it. @Desert Dingo, the sound l...

Re: "Play USB" Channel versus "Roku Media Player" Channel

I have used Roku Media Player with good results. For my general use of playing my files of Mpeg 4 with usb via Roku I have been using Nowhere Man usb (free plugin). It functions same as RMP. It has very simple layout and easy use. What I have had on both systems is: whenever I try and play a MKV fil...

Re: NBC Sports Live Extra is now available on Roku and Apple

As others noted, always good to see various broadcast networks adding viewers to the internet via Roku. It may be slow in some cases, but that is fine..they are making headway. So far the listings for Indy and Formula 1 is mainly clips. Hopefully they will start adding some complete races. I would a...

Re: Video freakout in Yahoo's Other Space

...Fear not, the 'glitch' was there. At first I thought it was some sort of scene transaction, but when it went back to it a few times...I think it was just a tech problem. Personally, did not think the show was very good, so probably will not watch another episode. Since Yahoo is trying to generate...

Re: CBS All Access

Would like to try this out before handing them over credit card info. Not sure how easy it will be to cancel if I don't like it. Very pleased to see the CBS Roku app, and with their local affiliate channels being reached out to I'm encouraged that CBS may be getting serious about streaming. My conc...

Any update info on: Hbo Now

The release date for Hbo Now noted for sometime in April. They list available via Apple and Optimum +. Any news of releasing to 'sign-up subscribers' via a Roku channel. Sounds like it would be the obvious advance step for the HBO go channel. The next break-thru for all the people that have no cable...

Re: Amazon new 'pilot' season

I saw that and intend to look at a few of the new pilots myself. Have to admit that I have not watched an episode of the Jeff Tambor show yet, in fact was unaware it existed before it won the globe. As an Amazon prime member I find the channel not the easiest to find content I am interested in and ...

Amazon new 'pilot' season

Just caught the ads/previews for Amazons new season of 'pilot' shows.

Looks expanded this year with 13 shows, including (4) pre-school and kid shows.

A chance to watch and judge/pick a show you would like to see a full season of viewing.

Re: Pub-D-Hub down?

Starting last evening, all I get is the splash screen. The only way to exit is with the 'home' key on the remote. All other channels seem to be working normally. I deleted and re-installed the channel, but no joy. Was wondering if anyone else is having the same experience? Checked this (even before...

Re: The channel is working again - Have a Nice Day (ok 2 del

For me...Crackle has been 'up and down' with problems since inception. I still try on a few titles...but some mishap seems to ruin viewing. Only show I watch, or try too, is Seinfelds Comedians Getting Coffee in Cars. Even that this year is 'hit and miss' with several eps that just do not want to pl...

Re: NBC begins live streaming - Requires authentication

NBC current shows I still enjoy:

Grimm; Blacklist; Constantine; Parks & Rec.; About a Boy, + in season they run a number of the Indy races. A few good 'specials' each year like Michael Buble Christmas w/Streisand, etc.
NBC news, (always).

Like all other networks..shows come and go.
