Re: Roku 4- Is it loud or just me??

After some thought about what I want and need in an upgrade from my 2xs I'm going to go with the 2. I had been waiting a long time on the four I'm sure its a wonderful device but it's way more than what I need. And frankly I don't want something that big or that requires a fan I'm spoiled on small a...

Re: Help choosing Roku4 -vs- Roku3

I've been waiting on the four a long time I'm upgrading from an XS which has served me well with many many on hours on it. I wanted to skip a generation even though the three looked inviting. I'm fairly brand loyal so as long as Roku continues to build a reliable product that does what I need I'll s...

Re: Why is Roku picture lower quality than Chromecast?

I've been a longtime Roku user. I have the Roku 3 with a wired ethernet connection to my router. Before I got the Chromecast I thought everything was fine (because I didn't know better). After I got Chromecast I compared the picture quality of Netflix between the Chromecast and the Roku. The Chrome...

Re: How Roku can build a Chromecast killer

The two devices are really not in direct competition with each other the way I see it. Chromecast is targetted at smartphone/tablet users, while Roku is a proper internet TV streamer. Both have their advantages/disadvantages, but neither can replace the other per se. Now the lack of YouTube on Roku...

Re: Roku 2XS worthless after update

Huh, I don't get it both my 2-XS's are working better than ever, there were a couple hiccups after the update but they're gone and all is well. Maybe the people having issues downloads were corrupted in some way.

Re: Roku 3 quit working

Good glad you got it working my 2-XS has had its eggs scrambled a couple of times during lighting storms (before I could get it unplugged) but has always recovered after a reboot.

Re: Roku 2XS worthless after update

I'd PM Shawn the moderator with your CS case number, model and serial numbers from the units etc.and see if he can help. My 2-XS's after the update can act a little buggy at times mostly lag but nothing like what your experiencing, good luck.
