Re: Roku version 7.5.0 build 4099-02

Perhaps something else is going on with their feed.  I have not watched the channel in a while, but it was definitely working on election night. Also, I am talking about a 2 XS here.

Re: Roku version 7.5.0 build 4099-02

The NHK network channel is a private channel.  I forget what the install code was (been using it for ages.)  It worked under ver 7.2;  I didn't try it under the previous build of 7.5.

Re: Possible hack of Roku 3?

When you mention stereo speakers from an integrated amp, I would assume the audio output connections from the Samsung TV to the input on the Sprout are analog using RCA pin jacks.  If you have a faulty connection anywhere along the signal path, or you have some other device connected to the amp (suc...

Re: Roku version 7.5 rollout on hold?

Is the initial phase over?  I see no option to roll back in the "secret" menu  I'm just a civilian. I am not privy to any Roku technical information. Perhaps one of the forum moderators will comment on the window of opportunity for rolling back a software update. But, I wouldn't hold my b...

Re: Roku version 7.5 rollout on hold?

You can also Google "roku secret screens"  ....  you will get a wealth of returns with all the other Roku secret codes.  This info has been rattling around the web for a long time now. "Google may not be everything .....  it may not be able to make you a sandwich; but, then again. whe...

Re: Roku version 7.5 rollout on hold?

During the initial phase of a software rollout, you are able to regress to the earlier version using the "update software" function in the "secret screen." "Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible." Francis of ...

Roku version 7.5 rollout on hold?

Is it safe to assume that the OS update is in hiatus?  After experiencing some bugs in my boxes, rolling back to version 7.2, and now seeing that I cannot force an update to 7.5; I guess the rollout has stopped..??

Re: PBS Channel

I have been having the issue where videos will stutter, then freeze, then reset my Roku 2 XS. I also have an issue with the instant replay always going back to the beginning of the video; but this started happening after my box updated to version 7.5.  I created a topic about the bugs I've experienc...

Re: YouTube kicking me back to the Roku home screen lately

Same issue with my Roku 2 XS. It has been doing this, I think, ever since version 7.2.

Version 7.5.0 build 4096-02

I am experiencing two bugs on Roku 2 XS (3100X) post update..... One is with the behavior of instant replay in PBS videos.  Instead of a ten second rollback, all videos return to the beginning. The other is with Spotify . When I exit the channel and later try to launch it, either playlists will not ...

Re: Poll: For Roku 2 XS users running new firmware 7.2

Pompey, are you seeing apps that spontaneously quit back to the Roku home screen, or only spontaneous system reboots?  I am getting both, and on multiple channels, so I am inclined to think that the fault lies with the 7.2 update. Very frustrating to be facing this again so soon after the 7.1 relie...

Re: Poll: For Roku 2 XS users running new firmware 7.2

Getting multiple spontaneous reboots on multiple channels, including Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, History, PBS, et al.  Never seems to occur on primary audio streaming channels.  Also still getting the strange doubled-up system sound on remote entries after the box has been idling for an ...
