Re: Using Roku in My RV

I have a second roku in my fifth wheel. If I get a good network it works great. Granted I'm not using hulu so can't speak to that, but netflex works fine.

Re: Roku Media Player Question

Wanting to maybe clarify, you won't be using Roku Media Player to receive from Plex, you'll need to add the Plex channel. Not sure that was clear.

Re: Roku "bomp" sound when using Tunein

I've listened to a station recently and had no such issue. It could even be the specific station's feed, not all of tunein.

Re: ultra not connecting

The last Roku I acquired was from a friend who was ready to toss it, could not get it through entire set up. I plugged it in at my home and it stepped right through the process. You say that you have two wifi networks going. Have you tried temporarily shutting off the one that you don't want it conn...

Re: ultra not connecting

Start over with it by doing a hard reset. I've had more than once installed a new unit and had some glitch hang things up.

Re: No internet for roku stick

I think I'd look at both locking down your wifi channel, no using Auto, and also reserving whatever IP is given to your Roku to avoid it being bumped after devices are rebooted.

https://support.roku.com/article/208757008-how-to-factory-reset-before-returning-selling-or-gifting Another thought, maybe a stretch, but did you try another hdmi port? They do fail as well, and can be damaged by hot swapping (removing/replacing devices while powered). There is also a way to force a...

Re: My ROKU Is Bricked - Help Please

I didn't see in your post that you did a complete reset to factory. If not then that's all I can suggest.

Re: Roku 2 not displaying

The other component to this is its power adapter. Would be good testing it or swapping it. They do fail.

Re: Roku 2 aspect ratio problem

I assume you use hdmi. The equipment on both ends do a but of handshake when first detected. My guess is that the signal from the onkyo is misinterpreted initially, then adjusts. If you could get your hands on another AVR to hook up in place of your onkyo it would allow continued testing without mis...

Re: ultra no internet connection

Since it has issues both wired and wireless I suspect its modem or ISP. Have you taken a look at speedtest.net and its graphic while testing download speed? On my cable connection I get a fast ramp up and then a stable signal until end of test. When I had connection issues the graphic was a very jag...

Re: Audio only when playing some MKV files

The files need to be made using a small list of codecs, both for audio and video. Use mediainfo program to see all of a files specifics. For audio stick with AAC for stereo or AC3 for multitrack (or stereo). For video stick with h.264.  There are more, but I find that sticking with these couple, eas...

Re: Wont Connect to wirless networks

To test whether the unit is working, can you take it somewhere else and try getting online?
