Re: Any Roku Model that will kill video output instead of screensaver?

I don't believe any Roku can do so. What is your desired reason for no video output? To reduce power consumption by the Roku, or to put a display into sleep mode for the same purpose? The Roku consumes so little power that it really doesn't make much of an impact. And while computer monitors will go...

Re: Streaming ATMOS from Serviio (PC) -> Roku Premiere -> Sound bar

I see that you're in Auburn. Just moved to Renton from Florida and loving the weather  :lol: Will the above mentioned setup at least do DD/DTS? Doesn't have to be high quality, anything better than TV audio or 2.1 sound bar for watching movies, without pissing off the wife with all the wires runnin...

Re: Streaming ATMOS from Serviio (PC) -> Roku Premiere -> Sound bar

Much appreciated for your answer, atc. Honestly, I wasn't really thinking much on how to set this up until I realized that I should :) I don't have Roku Premiere (on order) or a sound bar (thinking of Vizio SB36512-F6), yet. I have an older Samsung TV and my mission is to get DD/DTS (minimum) or AT...

Re: Streaming ATMOS from Serviio (PC) -> Roku Premiere -> Sound bar

If you are playing a HD or UHD rip with TrueHD/Atmos, you can't get Atmos via a Roku because no Roku supports bitstreaming lossless audio. I am assuming your soundbar has HDMI in, and your Roku is connected directly to the soundbar via HDMI. If the Roku is connected directly to your TV, and the audi...

Re: Perhaps a tough question about remote use with UMP

I can't say for UMP, but you can do that with Plex. Install Plex Media Server on your computer, and then configure remote access. I use my Roku Stick all the time when traveling and can access my Plex server without issue.

Re: Roku 3 screen goes blank periodically

The Roku 3 is getting old (regardless of when you bought it, the model is at least 4 years old), and sometimes they just decide they're through. Your issue sounds like an HDMI connection problem. You're replaced the cable, so that's one item off the checklist. Same with the factory reset. My suggest...

Re: Wrong subtitles when running Prime Video

The captions setting in the Roku is separate from selecting the captions in Prime. When the video is playing, press the down button, then go right until CC is highlighted. See if more than one caption language is available. If not, then it's just an on/off toggle. The Prime app itself doesn't have c...

Re: Repeating menu, favorites, guide and more questions?

Thank you.  I've just been exploring all of it, so different channels.   Not in Netflix or anything.  We haven't tried out the streaming services yet - Hulu, Vudu etc.  Just random free channels, and the Spectrum app (which does have a grid guide) - since we are current customers.  Trying to cut th...

Re: Roku 3 Slow to Restart

Very possible it's getting ready to keel over. The Roku 3 4200 was first released in March 2013, than a second version (same name, model 4230) was released in April 2015. Even if you haven't had it that long, that's how old the design is. The Roku 3, especially the second version, was one of the bes...

Re: Roku player stops streaming and goes to home screen

I have a Roku 2XD, Model# 3050X. It randomly stops playing no matter the app i'm in and goes to the home screen. I've rebooted it, checked the software is current.  Software is as of June 2019. Used to work flawlessly, started this issue a few months ago. Any suggestions? My honest suggestion is to...

Re: Pandora won't save account login credentials

I contacted Pandora and they were no help whatsoever. Just to reinstall the app, which I already had done. Both Roku and Pandora seem very uninterested in looking into this problem. Thankfully, Pandora still works with the built-in app on my TV. When you uninstall the app, you MUST reboot the Roku ...

Re: Repeating menu, favorites, guide and more questions?

It sounds like most of your questions are specific to a particular channel, but you didn't state what channel you're using.  -I have no idea what menu is scrolling continuously.  -There is no Favorites function or button.  -Since the Roku user interface doesn't know what you've watched within specif...

Re: Why does no Roku streaming device include Gigabit Ethernet?

It also supports any caption track contained within my media, while Roku only supports external SRT files. It won't display any captions based on images (which is what all DVD and Blu Ray discs use).  I think you mean the Roku Media Player Channel only supports external SRT files.  Roku OS has addi...

Re: Roku TV and Netflix Question

DSL isn't always bad.  I have 90 Mbps down and 10 up from CenturyLink, and it's been just fine for many years. Yeah, sharing bandwidth with other devices can make a big difference.
