Re: VUDU problems

Yes, my brothers R1 was dying, most likely the power supply. If he uses his IR remote it should work fine. For most things it worked fine even with the BT. Hey, he got it free so what can he expect. I hope, but don't really expect, the major software change coming for them will address the bug someh...

Re: Roku 2 HD Sound

Does your TV have audio out to hook into the stereo? I'd rather do it that way personally and use the TV as the switcher rather than have to switch both. Stereo is going to be the only option with the RCA cables for Netflix but other channels use DD. Setting it to stereo will in some cases give you ...

Re: Code 009 (DNS) error via Ethernet with build 1167 on N10

Update: I repeated the guided (network) setup tonight and the Ethernet (wired) worked again. No DNS errors this time during the "Connecting to Internet" test. Thus Ethernet on the Roku is working now. I never switched DNS servers or changed anything in the local network or equipment. I am...

Re: Handbrake vs Freemake

I found a setting in freemake that helped. I have two video cards one is onboard and probably intel. The other is an Nvidea 8800gs that should support acceleration. Freemake is supposed to use CUDA with Nvidea cards but didn't by default with my set up for heaven knows why. Forcing it to use both CU...

Re: ROKU 3 - How to turn light off, on face of the unit

The light should not come on at night. Something has to hit the remote to turn the device on. Perhaps take the batteries out of the RF remote to make sure it isn't activating.

Re: Invalid device credentials on Netflix

This usually means something is wrong with your netflix account. I had that happen after I changed my password and reset devices. It took a few days for the reset to take (a serious security flaw on their end if you ask me) and then that popped up. I had to go back to Netflix, reset devices again, d...

Re: Star Trek The Animated Series

Netflix offers a free trial. There are referral codes out there as well but I think the trial is the same without one. Get it, it's nice.

Re: VUDU problems

Actually with Vudu they control where your movie comes from so DNS isn't a factor. It's not the problem anyway as the problem persists beyond all normal trouble shooting.

Re: Roku 3 - No Picture Showing

I'd say wait and see if the picture appears after one minute. The boot screen isn't the same resolution as the video. It boots at 720p but after the boot it should do an HDMI handshake to verify 720 and the refresh rate. After that try pulling the HDMI cord out or powering the TV on and off with the...

Re: Ultraviolet on Flixster for Roku?

Even if you redeem it on flixster it should still show up on Vudu. UV is universal that way. Currently the flixster issue is on their end. They don't support watching on TVs.

Re: The Roku Netflix UI is ugly.

Is anyone's else's Netflix UI as ugly as mine. The album art is fatter and not the right aspect ratio. Also it seems blurry. Coming from the PS3 which looks way better. At least it is faster than the PS3. Wondering if there will be a update to take advantage of the Roku 3 processor? You've got a se...

Re: Roku 2 vs. Roku 3

It depends on which audio track you use. My roku is set to stereo so I get normal audio. My ps3 plays digital so does the test sweep. I still can't get it to play at all now. It says it's unavailable.

Re: Roku 2 vs. Roku 3

I haven't had any luck with Example Short in weeks. When it does play it doesn't ramp up in quality. I think it's become too popular. I'm kind of surprised the haven't pulled it even.

Handbrake vs Freemake

For some reason my computer won't run Handbrake. Well it will but the time to convert to Roku format is about 1:2 as in 20 minutes of footage take 40 minutes to encode. The same video with Freemake runs a little better than 1:1. My test video was 22 minutes long and encoded in 20 minutes. I must hav...
