Re: Remote from Roku TV

well you could get a 32 inch roku tv for less than the price of that remote linked earlier, or a 40 inch model for a few bucks more.

Re: Roku Audio

can't you just get a soundbar or receiver with passthrough so you just hook it to the hdmi from the roku and send the hdmi out from the soundbar to the projector?

Re: Roku Audio

I have a roku 4 in my theater, it hooks to my projector via hdmi, and to my sound system via toslink. Seems to work fine. I also have an old roku HD hooked to a monitor at my desk via HDMI converted to DVI, and the audio is fed through the RCA jacks on the back to the input on my PC. I was kind of s...

Re: Roku 4 and Toslink to RCA Converters

I got my toslink converter today. There was a little delay, but I switched to a shorter cable so the sound had less distance to travel, and after that it was ok. just kidding, there's no delay problem. I can run with the receiver and the TV audio both on without any issues. Usually I'll turn off the...

Re: Roku 4 and Toslink to RCA Converters

I ordered a 6 dollar converter [...] since the roku tv in my bedroom doesn't have any other audio out option and the old surround receiver in here doesn't support toslink. RokuTV has an audio-out jack right next to the TOShibaLINK. Seems to me a plain jack-to-RCA cable would do the same job First t...

I went for the free shipping, so it should be here sometime this century. got it since the roku tv in my bedroom doesn't have any other audio out option and the old surround recei...

Re: Detecting Keypress Release

@BradC - maybe you can eventually reproduce the magic on another Roku player and thus lift suspicion away from TCL IR towards Roku-at-large? Well roku would know if there's any oddness with that remote, but it would seem that the remote *shouldn't* matter, since the roku software just senses if it'...

Re: Detecting Keypress Release

I think so. I dont think there is an ir sensor on the stick.


I tried to test other remotes on my tv and the tv remote on my roku sd, but apparently they aren't compatible with each other. I didnt even know that but it makes sense.

Re: Detecting Keypress Release

BradC, did you reproduce this with an IR remote or RF? --Mark IR remote, whatever one is in the video, the one that came with the TCL roku TV. I'll try to reproduce it on other players later using their IR remotes, I've only noticed it on the tv so far, but that's really the main one I use so that ...

Re: Detecting Keypress Release

I made a nice video.

I put music on it, because why not.

I was able to get this to happen a couple more times, scrolling the other way too. I may try it on other roku players as well, but I'm goint to sleep now.

Re: Detecting Keypress Release

@BradC, does it have to be in B/S app? AWESOME Point EnTerr. I was assuming it would, and that there was probably something wrong with my code. But after farting with the remote for 5 minutes, I was just able to get it to happen on the main roku screen. Yaaaaay. it's scrolling indefinitely now, as ...

Re: Detecting Keypress Release

well it's interesting to me. I had it happen again earlier today on a different channel, and just now I was able to recreate it yet again in the space channel... I'm looking at it right now. I will have to try to track it down when I get more time, or just blow off the stuff I really really need to ...
