Re: DLNA problems

Okay, I copied the video files to Win7 and used Windows Media Player to successfully stream them to Roku via DLNA, so I think I've confirmed that the problem is not the Roku and must be a shoddy DLNA server implementation on the router. When I've got the time, I'll put OpenWRT and miniDLNA on the ro...

Re: Hold the Phone!

I think we have your issue isolated. See this on TP-Link site. They list MP4 as an audio file. http://www.tp-link.com/en/FAQ-506.html They may have to remedy with a firmware update. Right, I've come to the same conclusion, and found that if I rename MP4 to M4V (which actually IS more correct for vi...

Re: DLNA problems

I wonder if its something about those video files. I have played these files without problem by plugging the USB directly into the Roku, so they're generally okay. I checked the codec info in VLC; pretty sure it's H.264 with aac audio. But it's true that there might still be something about them th...

Re: DLNA problems

How about a network test of some mp3 audio files. That should tell you the process is good. In my tests, mp3 and jpg files do stream successfully from the router to the Roku, so the basic DLNA functionality is good. It's just video files that are a problem. From other discussions out there it seems...

DLNA problems

Just got a TP-Link router with a built-in DLNA server, but it's not working with my Roku 2 XS (build 9044) Roku Media Player app (4.1.1507); I'm not sure which device is the problem. First off, I've got a couple of MP4 video files on the router's USB storage. Roku Media Player app can see the router...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

While it's true that our players were working fine with Ver 6, the truth is with anything digital nowadays if your not keeping current your inevitably falling behind. By keeping our players current with the FW it allows us to be up to date on channels, which makes it much easier for content provide...

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Now I was only having it freeze occasionally before so I was having mild problems compared to others who have posted, but it shows Roku is working on fixing things even for our older players. Definitely good news if Roku's tinkering is fixing the problems that firmware 7.0 created. But I adamantly ...

Those of you experiencing this issue: Go into settings and under audio, set the menu volume to "off." QA is interested in knowing if this stops the freezing you're experiencing.

You can tell QA that turning off menu audio does NOT resolve the issue; still occurring in the same way.

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

I'd really like to hear "Don't worry, we're going to make this right" from Roku. I get that Roku can't commit right now to exactly WHAT it will do, but, really, it's just not acceptable to push out a firmware update that breaks devices and then just leave it hanging there. Roku can make it...

Try dropping to 720p if you're on 1080p. I believe v7 software has a problem over gunning the HDMI at 1080p.
My TV doesn't do 1080; it's a 32" 780p model so I've had the Roku set on 780p. I'll check tonight to make sure that's still the case after the firmware upgrade.

Re: 7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

Thanks Shawn; I'll PM that info to you tonight when I'm back home.

I haven't contacted CS; was assuming that they only deal with under-warranty issues. Should I contact them?

7.0 firmware broke my Roku 2 XS

The new firmware hit my Roku 2 XS a couple of days ago; it must have hit it pretty hard too, because I've got all kinds of new issues. Attempting to play a video (from any app) gives a blank screen with a text warning about HDCP not approved. Scrolling around on the main Roku screen, or within an ap...

Re: buffering

UPDATE Roku: 5 Ghz still getting buffering on Sling I use OOMA (modem > OOMA > wireless router) for my phones (2.4 Ghz) and when I talk on the phone Sling crawls to a stop.

Re: buffering

Try installing the speedtest.net app on your Roku so that you can check the speed that your roku is getting from your wifi router. If your speed is plenty fast in speedtest.net, then you can be certain that any buffering problems are likely due to problems with specific apps/providers.
