Re: Need input on Roku and OTA DVR

vnazario,

Thanks for the reply.  I may look into your Simple TV solution for the Fire tablet.  I had loaded the Google Play Store, which I believe has a Simple TV app, so that I could use Vudu on the Fire table, but then some of my Fire apps didn't work correctly.

Re: Need input on Roku and OTA DVR

Hello:    I don't know why you say TiVo is limited with its streaming apps?  Have you launched the OperaTV store on your TiVo?  There is a limited native apps on TiVo but there are hundreds you can add from the OperaTV store of your TiVo.      As far as Roku DVR solutions so you don't have to chang...

Status of Roku 2 XS, Model 3100X

I have an old Roku 2 XS, Model 3100X which I am no longer using.  Is it still supported?  I'm considering gifting or selling it to someone, but didn't want to bother if it is no longer supported.

Thanks.

Re: Spotify Roku Channel (playlists) Officially Dead

Well I hope they fix the Roku app so it has all the functionality of their other apps.  I do enjoy using Spotify with my living room system, where the Roku is the source.  But for now, if I really want to spend some time with Spotify in the living room (it does have the most comfortable seating), I...

Re: Spotify Roku Channel (playlists) Officially Dead

I've never understood why Spotify doesn't work more on its Roku channel. I don't know why they don't make it so that you can interact with it via a mobile device (smartphone or tablet) as you can with YouTube on Roku or Spotify on Amazon Fire TV.  That would satisfy me.  I guess there just aren't en...

Re: Roku Ultra and Spotify

I've been complaining to Spotify about this for years.  They are very bad about responding to customer complaints, unlike Roku.  It's too bad, because I too like using Spotify on my TV through Roku, but the app hasn't been updated in years.  I wouldn't hold my breath.

Re: Vudu users ....

The last few times I have used Vudu on my Roku 3, the stream has been so slow that it keeps asking me to bump down until I get to SD and it says it is still too slow.  I have no problem streaming content from any other source in HDX and HD.  Has anyone else had this problem and, if so, come up with...

Re: Roku showing as a Bluetooth device.

I can't imagine it would cost too much to add Bluetooth capability to the next version of Rokus. It would be a real addition, in my view, allowing users to connect their iOS and Android devices to their Rokus and then feed the audio (at least) to the TV. I'm not techie enough to know how that works,...

Re: Roku showing as a Bluetooth device.

I have 2 Roku 3s and a Roku 1. None of those use Bluetooth as far as I know. I received a new Bluetooth keyboard and went to pair it with my computer and the pairing system reported that the keyboard was available but it also reported a Roku device as a pairable Bluetooth device. As I said none of ...

Why would anyone listen to Pandora through TV speakers?
