Re: PBS Channel

Tried to watch an episode of Masterpiece last night but gave up after three device restarts. Particularly annoyed since my wife gave PBS $60 for the unlimited Passport option but we can't satisfactorily watch anything.

Re: Roku version 7.5 rollout on hold?

Was wondering that myself ... but, more importantly, how did you roll back to 7.2! I thought that roll-back was impossible!

Re: YouTube kicking me back to the Roku home screen lately

Yes, I've had this issue with YouTube for a couple of months. Sometimes it kicks back to the home screen, sometimes it restarts the Roku.  I have a 2 XS on 7.2

Re: PBS Channel

Yeah, the PBS Roku app is just laughably bad, both its technical design and its user-interface design.  It's been discussed in a couple of other threads . It's possible that there's something about 7.2 that doesn't get along well with the PBS app, but overall the PBS app is so terrible that it seems...

Re: Feature Requests - Fourth Quarter 2016

Support for the DLNA-based stream-casting feature that is built into the Windows 10 Edge browser. (Please note, this is NOT the same thing as screen mirroring, which requires Miracast). Presumably, this Feature Request would require enabling the Roku to act not only as a DLNA Player, but also as a D...

From Cordcutters.com, quoting a Roku message to developers:

This is a typo, right?  Aren't the new devices actually on 7.2.1?

Re: RMP 4.1.1521 update

Thanks again Dale, your guess about advertising DLNA renderer makes sense. Isn't advertising DLNA client capabilities, including functioning as a DLNA renderer, a built-in part of the UPnP/SSDP/DLNA specification?  And maybe then not too difficult to activate in RMP?

Re: RMP 4.1.1521 update

Thanks Dale, that's encouraging; would be very cool and handy if it worked.  It doesn't work for me at present (Roku 2 XS on 7.2) but I don't know if the problem is on the Roku side (e.g., Roku Media Player not announcing its DLNA client or not able to process the request from the Windows 10 DLNA se...

Re: RMP 4.1.1521 update

Dale, is Roku Media Player the right place to hope for the addition of support for the Windows 10 Edge browser "cast to device" feature? I've been unable to find any technical details about this Edge-casting feature, but plenty of unofficial commentary that suggests that it does not requir...

Re: Roku2 Crashes on 30 seconds of PBS app video

Same problem (and same 2XS with 7.2). I reported to PBS and got a reply that they are aware that some Roku users are having problems; no suggestion that a fix is in the works. Reported also to Roku and was advised to do a factory reset on my device; haven't done that yet due to the hassle of reactiv...

Re: Netflix's catalog has shrunk by a whopping 50% in the past few years

I realized a while ago that Netflix -- since it is a digital products company that runs on silicon hardware that operates according to the principles of quantum uncertainty -- can be described by the Netflix Uncertainty Principle, which is a derivation of the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.  In sh...

Do you mean that you're able to cast from Windows 10 to your Roku, using either the right-click context menu or the "cast to device" option in the Edge broswer?  Doesn't work for me and I haven't even been sure if it's supposed to work with Roku!

Re: RMP 4.1.1521 update

Thanks, so far my DLNA needs are REALLY minimal and maybe can be met with Windows 10, but if I run into problems I'll definitely check out those other two options

Re: RMP 4.1.1521 update

I'd really like to use DLNA streaming from my Windows 10 computer, but it's really clunky and scrambled and I don't know if that's from Roku Media Player or from the Windows DLNA server. Roku Media Player first gives me a choice of "Music" "Video" "Pictures" ... and the...

Re: Roku 2 XS freezes then reboots randomly after using remote

Do you never get these reboots when you haven't used the remote?  My 2 XS is totally messed up since 7.2, every single evening of viewing ends with a spontaneous reboot ... but for me it is about 50% rebooting when I use the remote, and 50% of the time rebooting in the middle of playback when I've d...
