Re: 983 Annoying Noob Questions

my sister uses U-verse at the same speed package you've just upgraded to, with 2 rokus and it's fine for her hulu plus is individual programs from select networks, some of which are available on roku, but there are some shows only available via a PC (or workaround that shall not be publicly mentione...

Re: Yule Log 2013?

lucky, holiday channel didn't work for me. i never deleted it from last year but i couldn't get any content to play i added PRESTO though, and after it finished the advertisements, it's a lovely crackling fire. i like it better than netflix's "fireplace for your home" which just doesn't ha...

Re: podcast in Roku

Re: 1st Gen & 3rd Gen Co-exist?

i keep my n1000 on its own account since it tops out at around 25 channels. i have an xd/s, roku2 xs and roku 3 on the other account. all of them are logged into the same netflix, hulu plus and amazon accounts though - those are unrelated to the roku account.

Re: What a Waste of Time and Money

if the tips from the more technologically savvy members don't work for you, please consider the furniture. have you tried using the laptop right next to where the roku is to see if there's maybe just a bad spot? until i rewired my house and moved my router down the hall, i had to hang it upside down...

Re: What a Waste of Time and Money

I have a NetFlix account monthly and still it wants money to view movies. is there a specific service or channel asking for money to view movies? once you have connected your existing netflix account to the roku via your netflix account on your computer, then you should be all set with netflix. the...

Re: Lock or hide channels

as far as i have seen, only the private channel videobox has a setting to lock entering the channel with a PIN. because that's definitely a channel you don't want your kids getting into. it also has the option to add the same channel with a fake name/logo, and the PIN amazon instant video has the op...

Re: Roku XS 2 - Very Slow To Retrieve/Stream Data - Errors O

The Roku actually is the closest device to the router in that room (laptop/phone/tablet) but I can try "pointing" it in a different direction...with that said is the device that sensitive that moving it a few feet will make the difference? Is there something I can do on my router to impro...

Re: Ads before streaming now?

are there/were there previously ads in the middle of the same programming? i've seen a lot of requests from roku users to have the channel providers move the ads to the beginning so they don't interrupt the program mid stream.

Re: Roku XS 2 - Very Slow To Retrieve/Stream Data - Errors O

My router is maybe 10 ft away from the roku (behind a wall in another room) and my laptop and tablet and phones in the same room as the Roku stream with no issues and have significantly faster speed tests then what I can achieve on the Roku. so considering the other devices may be pointed a differe...

Re: XDS software and netflix app questions

this is the roku xd/s from 2010-1011? that's technically a first generation roku and would not support channels designed for the roku2 and roku3 generations. as far as can be expected at this time, there will probably be no future software updates for these models and there is no expectation that th...

Re: Better use of the PIN

I don't know of a solution to your problem but also don't see how renters could do any damage to your account - at worst it would be a small inconvenience for you to reinstall channels. unless you are someone with a legacy channel that no longer can be added but still works. if my roommate deletes ...

Re: Do we really make a difference?

You are an influential person in the OTT world and ask us to solicit support for things that we do not want. The idea that on-demand is what people want is only held by people in the industry. The rest of would prefer linear programming. I would humbly request that you would join us in petitioning ...

Re: Do we really make a difference?

Hulu Plus is not providing live TV for the broadcast networks and none of the major networks have their prime time shows streaming online through Rokus other than via Aereo for those few cities in which Aereo now is live and, perhaps, a few through Skitter (I'm not sure of its current status). i me...
