Re: BBC America not launching - SUPPORT REQUEST

I have contacted BBC America but have not heard anything back after several days. As mentioned below the BBC America Channel does not launch on either of the Rokus I have at home; an Ultra (4660X) and a 3 (4200X).  I get the splash screen, then "loading" then back to the main Roku menu.  E...

Re: ROKU Express [UK] HDMI Passthrough for Digital Sound via S/PDIF

Is your Roku set for DD+ output as opposed to Auto from the HDMI?  It could be the feedback the Roku is getting from the adapter isn't indicating that DD+ is supported?

Why can't you connect the Roku directly to your amp via HDMI?

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

It's still working on my Ultra and the picture of City Scroll that was briefly accompanying it in the menu is gone.

It has never been available on my 3's and it still isn't.

BBC America not launching

Is anybody else having issues with BBC America?  When I select it I get the splash screen, then it says "Loading" and then I just get dropped back to the menu.  I noticed this first on my new Ultra but just confirmed the same behavior on my 3 that's in the bedroom.  I've tried the usual st...

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

I never had it on my 2's or 3's but found it on my recently purchased Ultra.  Just looked tonight and it's still working but if I go to the Screensaver page it has "Aquatic Life" on the list but the picture shows CityScape. I'm almost afraid to reboot but I need to reinstall BBC America so...

People get so angry when something that costs $9/month doesn't do everything they think it should.

Re: Roku 4 specs

Are there any published specs on the Roku 4? I'm hoping for a seperate digital audio out on the backside so it is compatible with non hdmi digital surround sound systems. This is a feature they dropped over the years, doubt they'll add it back in. Time to get a new receiver, you're not getting Dolb...

Yes, clearly that's the problem.

Re: Any Roku channel streaming Women's World Cup Soccer?

The only thing I miss is the EPL but that is real hard to find anywhere except the UK and even there I don't think the matches are streamed. :?: :?: :?: For the last two seasons NBCSports has carried the EPL in the US. They have a game on live (typically on NBCSN but sometimes NBC) whenever there a...

Re: Amazon-Prime now has retched Netflix-like Post-Play--NO!

Here's a little secret: If you stay for the credits, sometimes they throw in some humorous or other little clips to reward you for doing so. Pixar is often good for that. Ferris Bueller is one the earlier ones that I remember. I find that I'm seldom interested in the Key Grip but if there is someth...

Re: Control channels from app without TV?

Hello: I have not tried this since I don't have a Roku 3 or new HDMI stick but if you use screen mirroring you can run Pandora on your Smartphone and then you would be able to "control" from your phone to your Roku connected to your Home Stereo/Theatre system. This should work. Give it a ...

Re: Roku 3 Audio in S*L*O*W M*O*T*I*O*N

^ Out of curiosity, does this happen after a commercial? (or after fw/rew passing a commercial?) I haven't made a note about when it first starts but I believe it happens right from the beginning of a show. On Netflix there are no commercials and on Hulu Plus the breaks are short enough that I usua...
