Re: Wont Connect to wirless networks

Did anything with the network name (ssid) or password change after the network had problems? There has been issues in the past if password had some special characters in it.

Re: Roku 2 XS not connecting to wireless

I'm not saying that you should also get a 3, just that I have two for the usb capabilities. Look at the various models for the connection type and features you need. If you end up recycling your old unit you may want to pull the remote batteries and jeep it for a spare. Some newer units use the IR r...

Re: Wont Connect to wirless networks

You don't say what roku you have. Some networks require you to first agree to terms on a router webpage before letting network traffic flow. Did you get that with other devices?

Re: Roku 2 XS not connecting to wireless

One last thing to consider trying is to rename your network ssid. I'd hate to see you toss a working, albeit old, device. The reason I suggest this is that the roku's radio is working if it shows available networks. If it does connect (fingers crossed) you could put your ssid back to normal and try ...

Re: Network Issues with Insignia Roku TV

I wouldn't rule out your router. A neighbor has a roku tv and had similar streaming woes and she had a rock solid but older Linksys wrt54g router. I suggested a dual channel, with N or AC capabilities, which she purchased. No more streaming issues. It could be something as simple as network congesti...

Re: Audio settings

I think where I'd start is looking at your avr to see if there is a setting to turn on/off the passing of optical via hdmi. As I understand your post, content from your roku (hdmi) is not being sent from your avr toslink output. 
You get audio from your roku otherwise I take it, to connected speakers?

Re: Roku media player can't display photos in correct orientation

Some photo viewers will also read that data and correct it. That's why I suggested thumbnail view. Also a freeware viewer like Irfanview will allow that setting to be ignored, and thus shows the picture unadjusted. You can rotate and save them there.

Re: Roku returns to home screen while streaming

Your first sentence is my guess where the problem is. Your modem reset was done, I assume, to fix some problem. Often a reset will push firmware/setting updates to your modem. You don't say, but is it also your router? If so, it may have also made changes that have affected your internet access.

Re: Roku Media Player not playing

The files would have to comply with the limitations of the roku. Audio codec and video codec. Can you say what codecs are being used with these videos?

Re: Roku media player can't display photos in correct orientation

I'm having this issue, too.  But how do I remove the orientation info from 1000 jpegs?  Is there a simple way to do this?  I am a novice at this.  Thx. I believe that once you rotate them in Windows the orientation info is corrected. You can batch process them in Windows if you can view the thumbna...

So you can find your network during set up, but it won't connect?

Re: No sound on some downloaded files

Either download mediainfo or play it in VLC player to see what codec it has, then use one of the many methods to make it right.

Re: Roku, please allow the power button to send the home comand to the Roku so it stops streaming

I've seen this on my Roku 3 a few times, no matter how many times I've told my wife to stop the stream, usually a music stream. I finally programmed the home command into my Harmony as a "when leaving activity" so it now does that.
