Re: Roku and Vacation Rental Property

A few years ago we stayed a month at a rental that had a tv with netflix app. I signed in and used out account, then the day we were to leave I was able to log into netflix online and disconnect devices. Doing that meant that I had to add my roku back to netflix but not a roku set up from factory. T...

Re: No image/video coming through via Onkyo AV Receiver

I think I'd also completely power off the avr and tv, evening pulling power cord. Let them renegotiate the hdcp handshake.
Happy New Year

Re: Roku remote fails when WiFi is on

Assuming it's a roku tv by your description, correct?
When first connected, I assume on Christmas, did you ever experience it checking for or going through an update?

Re: Rookie question re data usage.

If a person was really concerned they could unplug the tv at night, or put a rule in their router to deny internet access at night, but that only delays the same data use until powered back up.

Re: No sound

More information needed. How is it all connected? Is there a stereo amplifier involved? Just the tv and roku? Hdmi cable or ????

Re: My Media - Your Music and Video on the Roku DVP

I have to say, yes, maybe a little bit to set up, but I still use it, almost daily, and have not run into anything that I'd rather use. No frills, but solid. Now that the Roku Media Player can handle flac files, any chance My Media can be updated for them as well? Just tested and it shows no playabl...

Re: Roku subtitle support

You have subtitles enabled in Roku Media Player? How about the TV?

Re: Roku subtitle support

Roku Media Player does what you describe. It will play subtitles embedded into an MKV file or in same folder if named identically, and will display for MP4 files this way as well (just not embedded).

Re: Roku Express Can't connect to password protected Wifi Network

Just throwing this out. Could it be the type of security in your network isn't roku friendly?

Re: Roku 2 media play doesn't play sound on some tv show files

A different roku won't change things. It should just work doesn't mean that my prius should do four wheel drive, and any device you get will have limitations. Try playing a dvd in your car cd player. If you are going to pirate video you are at the restriction of who ever created that file. It wasn't...

Re: Roku 2 media play doesn't play sound on some tv show files

Yes I do. This comes up a lot and the codec limitations are easily found on Roku's site. I find commonly that files have AAC audio that is multichannel. The sound will not work. Several freeware programs can quickly convert that audio to AC3 multichannel or at worst, AAC two channel. Then you'll be ...

Re: Roku Express keeps disconnecting from internet.

Just know a few simple facts about wifi. If a wifi device us too near a router it may have poor signal. If the device is too near other strong electrical or magnetic device it may get radio interference. If there are any obstructions between a router and a device the signal will be reduced (walls, m...

Re: is roku 2 (older) still usable? keep searching for devices.

My guess is its a network issue. The older models lack speed and capacity but my old 2 still served up video, and probably still is, where ever it now lives.

Re: Anyone else have terrible audio lag on their Roku TV when using a sound bar? (TCL 55S401)

So  I assume you've checked settings in both tv and soundbar for any delay settings?  Just downloaded the manual for your tv and find no audio sync adjustment. What about the soundbar? Does it have connection options? Just wondering if the lag is on all available tv outputs or just optical/hdmi/anal...
