Re: Thoughts on Aereo

does the TWC app offer the networks as part of their package and if so is it part of the "must carry" clause that cable (used to any ways) operates under? If so is CBS giving TWC the same grief it gives Aereo? I could be wrong but my understanding is that the must carry clause was struck ...

Re: Thoughts on Aereo

Now that the legal battles are subsided a bit (I'm sure the networks will continue to try though and precedent isn't set in stone yet) Aero is poised for growth. Part of that must mean getting a good Roku team to work on the interface. Content is king so I'd try it if it came to me and find a way t...

Re: Netflix plans to change up its family streaming service

Restricting by IP wouldn't work, since Netflix is available on mobile (celluar) devices as well. Netflix is the only service that I've ever seen the message come up on about the number of devices, and that's been only rarely. Now, I don't know if it's popping up every time we've gone over the two s...

Re: Roku 3 rebooting on Crackle

Whenever there is a problem with only one channel it is the channel's problem not the Roku's. When I have Crackle problems with my Roku, I cannot replicate on any other streamer or server, so I think you are at least partially wrong. The streams for different devices are not necessarily the same st...

Re: Roku 3 remote losing connection after hours

The remote is capable of connecting at 5ghz. We've suggested that the remote be given a menu to change it's channel but Roku has yet to respond. Based on past experience that usually means that they don't want to do it. If they did implement this then people could put the remote in an isolated 5ghz ...

Re: Kickstarting a Roku Channel?

Here's my take and I hope it doesn't sound pessimistic, but you are doing it in an odd way. The first question is what content can you get . As Castilla said there is a lot of garbage online that you may or may not be able to get, but that isn't a good source. You don't want to be a YouTube clone. I...

I sent this letter to Fox News and encourage anyone who would like to see the Live News coverage expanded, do something similar. Whether you agree with their perspective or not, if Fox News expands, then CNN will have no choice but to join the progress. To: newsmanager@foxnews.com<newsmanager@foxne...

Re: How to undo a channel rating?

Seconded. Usually you can only rate a channel if you have it installed and never undo it. Just rate it what you think is fair. It shouldn't affect your account unless Roku starts using a Netflix like recommendation system.

Re: Roku 3 rebooting on Crackle

Actually a reboot is a problem in the OS software that needs to be reported to Roku. A channel can crash, a channel may even be able to send you out to the home screen but it should never be able to trigger a reboot. The OP doesn't seem to be having reboots however. It's just a lock up on the channe...

Re: Netflix plans to change up its family streaming service

I don't understand why they don't just limit it to one IP address at a time. That way the person with three kids who insit on watching Spongebob is happy and the kids don't have to spend their allowance on a Netflix account. It would also eliminate the current account sharing where two single stream...

Re: Losing wireless connection rather frequently with Roku 3

Can anyone confirm or debunk that putting the Roku in DMZ on your router will help? I had to turn my routers firewall off. However 1- I don't like router firewalls since I have them on each machine 2- Belkin by design has decided to remove advanced features so it's either on or off, you can no longe...

Re: The Roku Netflix UI is ugly.

The aspect ratio could be an issue with the Roku sdk as other channels are affected as well. Not all, but others.

Re: Roku 3 and 1080i support?

That's a tough call to make. Generally speaking however a 1080i signal would be roughly equivalent to a 540p image since it has half the information of tha 1080p image per frame. Some TVs handle 1080i better than others but those same TVs will also handle 720p and it's different issue (upscalling) ...
