Re: Roku 3 vs. Roku Streaming Stick 2016?

Hiding the device is easily replicated with non stick with the little roku holder. A lot of the stick performance issues will be due to wireless. Some people have better wifi setups than others and some have more interference than others. When you have a lan port all that nonsense goes away and bec...

Re: Roku LT (2014 model) - now become JUNK after Roku 7.0 up

Is 7.1 better than 7.0? Notice any improvements? I only have a Roku 3. And 7.1 is great. CEC and Android mirroring both work fine as neither worked on the previous version. There are some very serious issues reported on older Roku models that is preventing 7.1 from being rollout to more Rokus. And ...

Re: firmware 7.1 beginning slow rollout (paused)

He said in the OP that it is not coming in 7.1. Roku does not disclose timelines. I would guess it would be implemented in the next firmware release, which Roku does not have timelines on (they like to Beta test things). I think Roku at the moment is focused on bug fixes for 7.0/7.1 rather than fea...

Re: Roku have an iptv app?

Every Roku channel is an iptv app. What particular company, channel or app are you interested in ?

All the official apps (Roku call them channels) are at https://channelstore.roku.com/browse

Re: Roku to pull out of the UK market?

As well as the above, Ive also been fed the same information from three different retailers, all with Roku devices in the bargain "reduced to clear" section And my uncle's neighbor's third cousin says he heard from four different zombies that the zombie apocalypse is coming May 1st 2016. ...

Re: Roku market share declining?

@thetick I don't understand. Why would I need to buy a new TV when I could just buy a new "streamer" and plug it into any one of the 3 or 4 hdmi ports on the RokuTV? rokudale Well yes you certainly could but you would still have to deal with the roku remote as your TV remote. <start of ra...

Re: Roku 3 vs. Roku Streaming Stick 2016?

The Roku Streaming Stick HDMI Extender Cable does help WiFi reception , to a noticeable degree. It's just not on par with the Roku 3 though. The Extenders they sent me did help, but the Roku 3 is still better for WiFi reception. The truth is really somewhere in the middle. An extender will not help...

Re: Roku market share declining?

I think ROKU integration in TVs is a great idea, and will probably get more manufacturers to sign on. I bought a 48" Hisense Roku TV earlier this year and I love it! I can't imagine getting another TV that is not a Roku TV. You'll change your mind in 5 years when you want a new streamer and do...

If you never use the YouTube channel then the Roku 1 is a good choice. Hello: If you don't like the responsiveness of the official Youtube channel for Roku: 1. You can side load on Roku the developer channel MyVideoBuzz. You can YT/Google the information on how to install. Available in GitHub. 2. Y...

Re: Updated my Roku 2 XS (3100X) to version 7.1.0 build 406

Any volunteers to try the new feature on their RokuTV ? :twisted: Did you manage to unbrick (for lack of a better term) yours? If so, I'll give it a try once I get back to mine in a few days. "un-dumbify"? "de-stupefy"? Ultimately yes, or i wouldn't be in such a positive disposi...

Re: Roku market share declining?

A lot of the "Bells the Whistles" aren't that important to me. Now if the channel crashes, that is a different story, but the Roku LT continues to work well. I was thinking about picking up a Roku 1 as it also has HDMI as well as Composite as a back up. So far so good. If you never use th...

Re: Roku market share declining?

I doubt ROKU is fading. Many of us disagree. The firmware problem looks like has been fixed. Nope still lots of issues. The "fixed" firmware is still not available yet. Can't comment on ROKU 4, I don't own one. The Roku 4 is by far the worst Roku product ever. It's such a horrible embedde...

Re: Roku to pull out of the UK market?

Well Roku support can be bad anytime/anywhere and the Roku 4 is such a disaster I'm surprised Roku has not recalled all of them.
I don't think you can assume Roku is moving out of the UK market based on what you listed.

Re: stop the update, it turned my roku into an LED flashligh

Bug report was filed by RokuDale
See viewtopic.php?f=28&t=94099#p527361

By the way the 7.1 upgrade is great on my Rok3. Finally CEC works and I can reliably Miracast video from my phone. Good job Roku!
