Re: Connecting ROKU to Sound System

Sounds like you really want a Soundbridge. I have one and I love it.

Unfortunately Roku pulled the plug on those 2 or 3 years ago.

Perhaps the next time she attends a big gala event she'll wear a pig dress.

Re: micro SD card

Based upon what I've read a 2GB card should be able to handle every channel and game currently available. I've never tested a bigger card but there's a different interface spec (SD 2.0) required to support (micro)SDHC cards which would be anything bigger than 4GB, I'd assume that the Roku supports t...

Re: HBO GO? Blocked? Why?!

It's ALWAYS about money. If you want to let them know how UN-happy you are, drop HBO. Enough people drop them, they will beg Roku to add the app. Roku HAS the app. Access to HBO-Go is determined by the provider. The OP needs to drop Comcast for Verizon FIOS if it's available in his immediate area o...

Re: HBO GO? Blocked? Why?!

The other issues is that if you're looking to put HBO Go on other televisions in your house. Cable or sat companies would rather sell you another box and have you pay a monthly fee, instead of letting you use Roku to access the content. The cable/satellite companies don't have a solution to put HBO...

I imagine if ya ask any of the roku folk what they would like to bring to the platform they will answer "everything" and once Roku offers 10,000 channels with every conceivable type of content where will cable be?

Re: HBO GO? Blocked? Why?!

Google TV does exactly the same thing Roku does. It streams content to your television. Large sets and small. Why Google TV but not Roku? Technically speaking it's because HBO-Go "sees" Google TV as an internet browser and not as an appliance. There is not a way for the authentication to ...

Re: Roku 2 XS Sound all over the place How do I level them?

From an old FAQ on Dolby.com 22. What is the “Midnight Mode” on my new Dolby Digital A/V receiver? Dolby Digital soundtracks can have a very wide dynamic range between soft and loud sounds. At a full playback level, this can be thrilling, providing a truly theatrical experience, particularly for mov...

Re: Roku 2 XS Sound all over the place How do I level them?

Why would you want you reduce the dynamic trend of the audio ? There's part of the fidelity.you don't want to compass the signal.Buying 5.r would only make the difference greater not smaller. I know it sounds stupid, and I should actually love the new sound. But it's because I have very thin walls,...

Re: $49 Roku 2 at Amazon.

How is running an AppleTV with XBMC/Boxee any less complicated than running the Roku with My Media, Myth or Roksbox?

BUZZZZZZZZZZ!
Really? Why do people feel the need to post on a forum as if they are doing a cutesy feature story on the local evening news?

Re: Password does not work

Can you try the Roku on a wired network? (rule out hardware issues with the Roku itself)

You could see if turning off the wireless security fixes the problem. If so try re-entering the password in the router (same old one or a new one) and then re-enter it in the Roku.

Re: HBOgo Help!!!

unfortunately hbo controls their service and decides who accesses it and how it's accessed. Obviously they've got some issue, whether it be with the provider or the way it's accessed. Mobile devices and HBOGo on television through a set top box are two different things to them apparently. I think t...

Re: HBO.GO

Can someone please explain where the HBO go content stream comes from? Does it come from your HBO provider (cable or dish) or directly from HBO servers? If your HBO provider were part of the distribution process it would at least make some sense out of connectivity issues between that provider and ...
