Re: Why was a topic deleted?

Looks like I deleted it and two others on June 8th.  There were a LOT of spam deletions that day, so it appears I wasn't paying enough attention :(  Sorry about that! Ok thanks, I already got some of the answers I wanted on it, but may re-post for thoroughness. It's not a big deal, but if you have ...

Re: Why was a topic deleted?

To add: - I would post this question to some sort of admin forum instead of to the main forum, but I don't see one at first look. - There was another topic that I had posted a few weeks ago which also seemed to disappear mysteriously. I don't want to go boxing at shadows here (heck, it's possible I ...

Learning Languages Using Roku, plus Netflix vs. Amazon revisited

1) I got the idea of trying to watch with Spanish Audio and English subtitles, and I guess I'll see how this goes, to try to pick up some Spanish.Someone recommended Netflix for this, and indeed, it does seem to have a decent selection where one can do this. 2) Years ago I decided to go with Amazon ...

Re: WEP key? trying to pull a Soundbridge out of mothballs

Only my M1001-B still works with current WiFi protocols, for the rest i use Almond access points. Ok, thanks.  Fwiw, I put back my soundbridge a long time ago and just use some of the radio stations on the regular roku and don't bother about any of this any more.  I mean, it was an interesting ques...

Re: Question about Atheist TV

I remember your post. I responded. Essentially, I said that they stopped live streaming and went VOD only, but you have that notice in your new post. My response also that that they would be the ones to answer any questions about their updating (or lack of updating) of their content.  As your your ...

Question about Atheist TV

Hi - I thought that I had posted this yesterday, but I don't see it.  Maybe I got confused, or if it was removed, perhaps could someone please tell me.  Note I realize there are folks who might be offended even just by the existence of such a channel, but my point here is not to provoke any sort of ...

TuneIn Radio issue

Hi - if I try to add a preset on Tunein Radio it tends to kick me back to the Roku home menu.  [edit - this does not seem to happen with all stations.  I was just able to add station Dark Matter Digital Network.]

Does anyone else see this or know of a workaround?

Disappointed - lack of classical/opera/theater videos

Many years ago I hesitated to set up my dad with a roku because classical TV did not work properly. Recently I set him up anyway and was looking through the channel store was surprised to see classical TV along with a couple of other choices.  However, when I tried to click on it, it simply reverted...

suggestion - schedule of upcoming programs

I suggest create a channel, or some sort of way, which allows for checking the schedule on upcoming programs.  I tend to check next-episode.net and that is just an example of where the information can be checked, but my suggestion is to bring this information somehow to one or more places on the rok...

idea for a channel and website - local shopping

This may be far-fetched, but the decline of brick-and-mortar retail in my area, and in areas around the US is a front-and-center topic.  There is more than one reason that traditional local brick-and-mortar retail is suffering, and the mix of reasons may be somewhat area-dependent, but in the end I ...

Re: Book listening channel? Book viewer channel?

A) Youtube is good for me when I go there on the web, but borderline not-usable as a Roku channel (in my opinion, last I checked).   I don't have a smart TV that would let me bypass Roku on something like this. The YouTube experience on a Roku player is entirely dependent on the model Roku. The 4th...

Re: Book listening channel? Book viewer channel?

Thanks, I'm just now getting to know the audible books aspect of amazon and you're right, they do have that phone app, I just downloaded today.  I also noted audible books listed as a new aspect of prime membership.  So, I think it will take me some time to work out my use or thoughts on this.  I'v...

For me, I think there are multiple aspects to this topic, including: - personal use - business discussion      - Amazon      - non-Amazon personal use - I've been reading a lot lately, mostly Amazon, though some via Kobo.  I am not yet into audio books and don't have a commute so it may be low proba...

Re: Book listening channel? Book viewer channel?

Hi -  Recently I also tried downloading an audible version of a book for the first time from Amazon.  I haven't really made much use of it, but it got me to wondering if there could be a way to listen via Roku rather than on my computer.  It wasn't that much different than listening to an old time ...
