Re: Ultra and Denon AVR-S930H problems

I have a new Denon AVR-X1400H which has HEOS on board but, I believe, has essentially the same logic control as yours.  You might want to check for defaults and then play with the following settings.  Some are mutually exclusive. HDMI PassThrough Pass Source HDMI Control 4K Signal Format  (set to 10...

Re: A Secret Santa gift from Spotify?

I saw that announcement already. ....  and after the splash screen hinted at wonders to come.  The word "unctuous" comes to mind.
All I can say is  ....."You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch ... . Stink, stank, stunk"!

Re: Pandora screen flashing

Join the club.  Judging from the lack of other comments and the paltry views, I guess we select three are the only ones in the universe seeing this....... just lucky I'd say.

Re: A Secret Santa gift from Spotify?

It's still the 21st but the channel is already in hiatus a little ahead of schedule.......  maybe the gift will come right after Christmas, like Boxing Day in the U.K.

Re: Pandora screen flashing

millhunk, I am seeing the same thing on my Roku.  I gather that you are a Pandora Plus member, sine I don't see the "Upgrade" radio button in the upper right of your screen.  I am a freeber and am seeing the same behavior. I thought perhaps it was the seasonal Christmas Lights marquee the...

Subtle change in button behavior with Roku OS 8.0

Has anyone else noticed the change in functionality with the "home" and "back" buttons?  Before 8.0, when you would exit a channel with the "back" button, you would be taken back to the grid row where that channel is located. When you exited with the "home" bu...

Re: New Roku Hardware Announced. 4K/HDR Stick - Roku OS8

I noticed that as well and wondered about the value equation between the 2016 and 2017 as it appears to be the very same core CPU also. Based on that data the 2017 model is just a less expensive(half the channel storage and no optical output) version of the 2016 model. One could say the the 2017 fi...

Re: New Roku Hardware Announced. 4K/HDR Stick - Roku OS8

Can anyone independently confirm the Wiki information about the 2017 Ultra (model 4660)?  Is it true that the channel storage has been REDUCED from 1 GB to 512 MB compared to the 2016 Ultra (model 4640)?  Why would Roku do this? If so, since the CPU seems unchanged, the RAM seems unchanged, and the ...

Re: New Roku Hardware Announced. 4K/HDR Stick - Roku OS8

It.s my time for another Roku box and I'd like some advice. My overall choice is limited to the Ultra because I like my home theater streaming connections to be hardwired.  The question is:  should I get the 2017 Ultra with the optical-out deleted; or look for possible final clearance pricing on the...

Re: New Roku Hardware Announced. 4K/HDR Stick - Roku OS8

Direct quote from The Verge two days ago:    "The bigger Roku box — the Roku Ultra — isn’t getting any significant hardware changes , but at $99, it’s less than the $130 starting price point it had last year. This is the highest-end Roku. It includes support for 4K at 60 fps and HDR10, an Ether...

Re: New Roku Hardware Announced. 4K/HDR Stick - Roku OS8

Did the Ultra receive any hardware upgrades to make it worthwhile to purchase over the previous model released earlier this year? I'm also curious about this. Anyone know the differences between the new 2017 Ultra versus the Ultra released last year? I'm interested also... it appears the new ultra ...

Problem with TVE channels

I have been experiencing a problem with some TVE channels, specifically ScienceGO , DiscoveryGO , and VelocityGO. It started recently, and I cannot say if it is related to the most recent 7.7 build.  When I try to watch or resume a video, it will play to the first or next commercial break, get to ex...
