Re: Missing audio on Netflix IW titles?

I'm having similar problems with Iron Man 2. Got a green band with weird audio artifacts, plays for about 15 seconds, then rebuffers and starts over again. After some playing around with ff/rew, I sort of got it to play, but it was only playing the background audio (applause, music, minor voices) a...

Re: The bad news about Roku2: Pandora Ads

Judging by the number of requests for special screen savers and requests for more information to be displayed and complaints regarding what is displayed during songs that we saw after the release of the Pandora ch that is exactly what a large number of people do. And Pandora isn't missing out on th...

Re: The bad news about Roku2: Pandora Ads

Why couldn't Pandora use banner ads instead of audio ones though. They may pay less but they could have them rotating all the time. Was that a serious question or a joke? You're not seriously asking why an audio service doesn't rely on visual advertising, are you? :wink: I'm guessing we'd have to c...

Re: Is Netflix Subtitle going to be available for Roku 1 or

I'm not sure how the announcement could be much clearer in telling us we are not getting subtitles for the older players. If someone is expecting an official announcement saying something like "We hereby guarantee that no matter what Neyflix does in the future, we absolutely (will/will not) sho...

Re: Is this a Netflix Problem mainly?

The only way a new DNS would help is if your ISP doesn't locate you properly to the closest Netflix CDN. That's a bit unlikely. It's actually extremely common. This bugs the heck out of me, that a billion dollar streaming industry could be built on a methodology where giving customers bad connectio...

Assuming that the several minutes of your time you'd save each start up is worth more than the few cents of electricity, you might consider a piece of black tape instead. :-)

Re: NetFlix DVD's

I get a decent percentage of unplayable disks from NF. I had taken to routinely cleaning them before putting them in the player, but I've gotten lax on that, and often the problem is the disk is outright broken in two. I doubt a human being even sees or touches the disks when they ship out in most c...

Re: DD5.1 for Netflix announced for Roku2, older models?

While I don't know for sure, I strongly suspect that Netflix subtitles and 5.1 sound will be available on the older boxes. Roku has been very good in the past about that kind of thing, and we know the old hardware is capable of it. Both are already on the box (Amazon has 5.1 and Hulu+ has subtitles...

Re: Starship Troopers...

Had to LOL at this one. Robert Heinlein's book was so different the movie was basically apocrypha. F'in'-A, Bubba! While I don't normally like Heinlein, the novel was a fascinating look at what it means to serve in the military, and a testament to honor, duty and esprit de core. The movie was an ul...

Missing audio on Netflix IW titles?

Is 'STII: The Wrath of Khan' missing the audio on NF IW for anyone else? Or has the Genesis effect gotten to my ears?

This happening on any other titles?

Re: DD5.1 for Netflix announced for Roku2, older models?

I just bought a Roku XD-S and thinking of returning it. Need to know if there will be a firmware update for this model to upgrade to the newer functionality. I only care about Netflix 1080p and 5.1 DD sound. This model does not seem to have it? Where is the info that new firmware update will be rel...

Re: Netflix refund / complaint thread

Nope.. I got that. It was a general statement (at least from my perspective) about the sense of entitlement that many of the most vocal users' posts (here and in other forums) are laden with. "Netflix has no right...", "I won't stand for this...", "Greedy capitalists...&quo...

Re: Netflix refund / complaint thread

With the splitting of the components and no discount for having both, the reality is more obvious. But some legacy disc subscribers still paying the old combo price may see things differently, as we've seen through this thread. ^What he said. Though if they were TRULY split, why couldn't I choose t...

Re: Netflix refund / complaint thread

Are you confused? He's talking about, and always has been, compensation for the service outage. Are you certain? Look at the first post of the thread where he's quoted regarding the DVD price hike. Yeah, he (or she?) can be pretty certain. The first post is about how to calculate a fair compensatio...
