Re: Feature Requests - Third Quarter 2017

I would like to see a high end Roku player with both a digital audio out jack (either optical or coaxial or both) and analogue RCA audio out jacks. At present the only current Roku model with RCA jacks is the entry level Express+.  I would love to have RCA jacks that would let me connect my Roku to ...

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

Guys, I have been testing Tunein on my Roku 3 4200X and the Tunein problem seems to be fixed. I have been listening for 45 minutes so far without a glitch. However there remains a problem with the Roku media player when I try to play audio files from my hard drive. The tracks either just stop after ...

Re: Tunein Radio? or Roku? Who's at fault? with repeating audio

I am having the same problems with the Tunein app that are mentioned above. It occurs on my Roku3, Roku Premier and my Premier+. But I am also having similar problems with the Roku Shoutcast app, the Radionomy app and the Roku media player app (playing audio files from my hard drive.) So I don't thi...

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

Thanks. I downgraded. So far so good. Will it try to automatically upgrade to the latest software some time in the future and potentially start the same problem over again??

Re: Roku 7.7 software issues

I am also having problems with Netflix. I have a Roku 3 - 4200X. When I start streaming some programs on Netflix, it works alright for a minute or two and then the video freezes but the audio continues. If I restart the video it plays up to the same point and then freezes again. It happens on some N...

Re: Where is Roku Customer Support?

There is no excuse for being put on infinite hold. Why couldn't Roku support have advised contacting the app developer to get help with an app?

Re: Premiere + Lipsync Problems persist

For what it's worth, lip sync problems are a problem across many platforms. I remember I used to have that problem with some channels when I had Directv, and now I sometimes have the problem with OTA channels. My TV has a setting for correcting lip sync problems but it doesn't seem to completely sol...

Re: YouTube TV? Not a chance with Roku owners

It runs fine on my Premiere. Not so much on my Roku 1.

Re: DirecTV Now (finally) on (some) Roku Players

I decided to try the free trial. At this point I don't think I'll keep it past the trial period but I am impressed with the picture quality. It is noticeably better than either Vue or Sling in my opinion. I have a Roku Premier on which the app works and a Roku 1 in another room that it won't work on...

Re: Netflix new annoying auto preview when browsing will make me cancel for good.

I called them and I was politely told that my opinion would be forwarded to their developers. But I doubt that my call will make any difference. I also have a Firetv with the latest version of their software and it does not have this feature. You have to click to start a Netflix video. However, the ...

Re: Netflix new annoying auto preview when browsing will make me cancel for good.

Yes, an easy solution to this problem would be to cancel Netflix. But in my case even though that autostart feature annoys the heck out of me there are several shows on Netflix such as "House of Cards" that I really enjoy and would hate to lose. So I have not cancelled. But would it be too...

Re: Firmware 7.6 update

I manually installed the 7.6 update today on my Roku 3 and after it rebooted it would no longer connect to my home network either via wifi or Ethernet. The only way to fix it was to do a factory reset, after which it was able to connect again. But now I have to go through the hassle or re-activating...

Cannot cancel Hulu + through Roku

I want to cancel Hulu. When I log in to my Hulu account it says that my subscription is managed through Roku. When when I log into my Roku account and select "manage subscriptions" Hulu is not listed so I cannot unsubscribe. When I open the Hulu app on my Roku and press the asterisk button...

Re: Picture too big on Express+

You may be able to adjust your picture size using a setting on your monitor. On my Vizio the setting is called "picture size and position." On yours it may be called something else. Either poke around in your monitor's settings or consult the owners manual.

Re: OTA channel Grit, steam on the Roku?

The previous poster is wrong.  TBD is available OTA. I get it on channel 14.3 from Salt Lake City.
