Re: Remotely control Roku

I use an old Blackberry with http://remoku.tv . The Blackberry works great to control the Roku and it even has a very useful keyboard!

Re: Roku 4 Has To Be Rebooted To Work

Seriously it's much easier to return a Roku 4 and get a Roku 3 or 2015 stick both of which are much cheaper and so much more reliable than Roku 4.

Re: Rokagram not approved by Instagram any longer

Everyone can kiss Instagram goodbye. Completely disgusting how they treat users and even the developers offering their services for free.

Re: Amazon misrepresents Roku 4 on Amazon's buy page for Fir

I agree with you Heyitsrick, because I've read that the Roku OS is a much more efficient OS than most others, so it doesn't take a lot of resources from the CPU and RAM. The Roku OS is designed exceedingly well and is as tight as Linux, which is only natural since the Roku OS is based on Linux, but...

Re: NEW Roku streaming stick 2016 versus 4 year old Roku 3

I FEEL SAFER BUYING FROM ROKU THAN WMART. NOTE SURE HOW TO DEFINE 'SAFER'" It's rude to use all caps.. it's shouting. Anyway I prefer to buy at Walmart because I can easily return anything in a matter of minutes as opposed to the ship back nonsense with Amazon. There is nothing dangerous about...

Re: Remote firmware bricked

So, why are people deciding to upgrade remote firmware via secret screens? Probably because they can ...without even understanding what a design cycle is or what QA is about. These are the same people who complain when they root their phone and then boot an incompatible phone OS. Oh now they have a...

Re: Connect to FTP

Uh no. A square peg will never fit in round hole.
FTP is not a streaming technology. FTP is a file transfer protocol.

Re: Accessing content only available on IPv6

Weird now I get a 7/10 on http://test-ipv6.com/ which I know is using a tunnel through Earthink but it is something and all I did was update my router software. It still uses ipv4 for any site anyway. Ah that's not even a reasonable option. Verizon FIOS VOD/Caller id REQUIRES the Verizon router. Ye...

Re: Accessing content only available on IPv6

Let me put things in perspective a little bit. IPv6 has been "taking over the world" for over 15 YEARS now. During those fifteen years of being approved standard, it has reached the whopping 10% distribution. And the reason for that is IPv4 has turned out to be "good enough" wit...

Re: Accessing content only available on IPv6

Just test your IPv6 connectivity at the site below. The very large discrepancy is between the type of devices or type of internet connection! My guess is about 1% of home users are ipv6, about 20% of academia, and likely 90%+ or more of cell phones. http://test-ipv6.com. For me: Verizon FIOS DNS cur...

Now, others chimed in with ways to turn them off. But the criteria included "easy" of which none of those are. Thats' when the mocking began.

Re: How to turn home page advertising off?

For those of us who don't live like the Unibomber, it's a little harder. It's not hard at all when you are a geek. If it's too hard then you are stuck with the ads. Life is a b1tch eh? And while I'm at it, instead of using packet sniffers and blocking domains, and then taking to a computer to post ...

Re: How to turn home page advertising off?

So when you see ads on TV shows... before movies... on websites... in newspapers... in magazines... on the radio... at sports stadiums... driving down the highway... in your mailbox... you take to their forums to see how to get them turned off? Why is Roku not allowed to soil your eyes with an ad b...
