Re: Insignia Roku TV suddenly can't stay connected to wifi for more than a few minutes

I've read a few of those complaints here, and since I had helped set up a home network for a neighbor, who has two Roku TVs, I asked if she has had any problems. None. I suspect it is network issue. Either a router setting, or signal quality. Some new source of interference in the vicinity, like a s...

Re: Roku no longer plays video files from Netgear attached USB

Let me just say here that, my roku handles mp3 and video just great, off of attached USB stick, BUT it does see my attached drive on my TP-Link router, but the dlna of that router only shows a portion of the files. I say this because so many posts show up here with DLNA issues and most are not Roku ...

Re: Roku ultra: no video with audio splitter

I think what he is saying is that its hit or miss on splitters. One main reason is that digital signals will require an hdcp handshake with both devices and a splitter between them may prevent it from occurring. 
A basic AVR with a few hdmi inputs would be the best route.

Re: Hard Wired Roku Problem

There is probably nothing wrong with that router. You will not see your 100mbps achieved with wifi. 54 is certainly an acceptable result. I have Spectrum and wired to my desktop I get 115, whereas our wifi connected laptop gets 54.

Re: Hard Wired Roku Problem

Here is why your set up didn't work, copied from Netgear support site. "The problem here is the switch, it is not where it is supposed to be placed. The setup should be modem-router-switch. The reason why you cannot get a connection from the other ports of the switch is because it does not hav...

Re: Mulitple Rokus drop connection same time every day

If there is such a setting, maybe it would be wise to change it to early AM instead of disabling. I have my router reboot once a week, during the night. Hopefully his make/model will be reported.

Re: The Reason Roku Does Not Support Lossless Audio Playback

I was told here once before, when asking about multichannel flac, that the roku will pass through ac3 from video without downsampling, so it will do so in some instances, just not for purely audio codecs.

Re: Roku connection problem

Is it possible that the problem room is close to another network that could be interfering? A neighbor?

Re: Roku connection problem

Since you say that it works when in other areas, then its most likely ok. Are you able to get into your router and save it's setup file and then reset it to factory settings? That way you can easily replace your settings and possibly fix any glitches that could have caused or been made by that sudde...

Re: STR-DH550 problem

As far as I know, no one here works for Roku, so not likely going to get one to respond. There are knowledgeable folks, some with access to roku techs.

Re: Roku connection problem

Obviously something has changed, maybe not with your router or roku but in that room. Any new electronics added? Mirror on a wall can block signal. Has the router been moved, or any other things in the signal path?

Re: STR-DH550 problem

I think that many, including myself, turn off ARC because of these kinds of complications.

Re: Unable to hook up Roku to play through our receiver speakers

Add to the lack of hdmi, this amp doesn't decode DD+, so no surround from netflix, if that's of interest.
