Re: hbo on hulu

I signed up for hbo on Hulu, which i can watch on my roku device, BUT the roku search does NOT search hbo on hulu. any advice It's up to the channel developer (in this case Hulu) to permit the Roku search to work in their channel. You'd have to ask Hulu support, but don't be surprised if they say i...

Re: New product

That's certainly a possibility. That link shows a Bluetooth connection is used for configuration. It doesn't mention if the Relay supports 11AC, so can't confirm or deny if it matches that FCC information. I also can't find what model number Roku has assigned to the Relay, but the FCC info shows a m...

Re: Roku trickplay bif customisation

You probably need to ask this in the developer's forum. This forum is for end users and few of us would have any idea about what you're asking.

Re: The new FireTV Cube has great specs, will Roku respond?

There's another post of a newly issued FCC ID for a new Roku product. The details are covered under a  confidentiality release date, so we can't determine what it might be. The only detail I could get from the FCC documents is that it will support Bluetooth, although how we don't know. Hopef...

Re: New product

Interesting. It's for the 2.4 and 5 GHz WiFi bands, but also shows Bluetooth overlap. Perhaps they're adding support for BT headphones. It shows a  confidentiality release date of Feb 28, 2020, so I would expect a product announcement near that date. Can't figure out any additional details from ...

Re: Constant Re-Activating channels, ESPN is daily.

Unfortunately that completely out of the control of Roku. It's one of two things, either the channel/app isn't connecting correctly to the authentication server (so it's an app problem) or the server that provides the authentication (either the cable/satellite company or again whomever is responsibl...

Re: The Reason Roku Does Not Support Lossless Audio Playback

DTS-MA is NOT bitstreamed passthrough. Only the lossy DTS core will pass, so you lose the HD portion of the audio, including any DTS:X encoding. And we never received confirmation that trueHD bitstreaming was working.  . I seriously doubt Roku will ever offer lossless decoding, as that requires lice...

Re: Adding a DVR feature to an Roku TV?

There's no known way to do it currently. If Roku is working on something like this, they never acknowledge it until release. No you do have another option. A device called the HD HomeRun connects to your cable/TV antenna and your network, and serves as a networked DVR and can stream the recorded vid...

Re: Turn off Wifi-direct in Streaming Stick Plus

Thanks, I was excited until I realized that this wasn't a stick and therefore too big for my application. I will continue searching for a 4k  stick with either menu or secret menu ability to turn off.  I may just insert a manual power switch. Roku is such an great product....with this one major fla...

Re: Device "sleep" and wifi keep-awake

Just a guess on my part. but it's likely keeping the display in a low power mode to start it up quicker. The player has to display to energize, so draws far less power.

Re: Roku Ultra Media Player Issues

Did you perhaps select audio when you were looking for video? You can hit the * button and change the media type if it's incorrect. And the wrong setting will block any non-matching media types.

Sorry you struggled with this. I recall seeing that mentioned here on the forum for many years, so it's not anything new. Roku wireless only likes alphanumeric characters.

Re: Roku overheating

The link to your image doesn't work. What was the temp? . EDIT: I just checked my Premiere, which is less than 6 months old. From the case it is just warm to the touch, and not at all uncomfortable to handle. The secret menu says it's 79C, which is 174F. Yes, that number seems really high, but that'...

Re: Roku Ultra recommendation

 One major question is if you stream any media from a local source, i.e. computer or NAS on your home network. If so, I suggest considering something that supports the lossless audio codecs, such as the Nvidia Shield. It also has a gigabit Ethernet connection. Your Marantz doesn't support 4K HDR (it...
