Re: Streaming from a Desktop PC to a TV

The Plex/web function is great. I live in Colorado and recently went Phoenix for a week and had full access to my entire media library online from my hotel.
I have a PC based dvr, so all my tv programs store right to the plex server.

Re: WatchESPN here now / Watch Disney on the way

When watching the ESPN channel, many of the games say two teams are playing then when you click on it and it's two other teams.

Re: watch recorded tv shows thru roku 2?

Plex is a good choice (in my opinion)..Will transcode different file types and let you stream them.. You just need to install the Plex server on your PC and the Plex channel on your Roku. Then you have to point the Plex media server to your media folder(s). Works well for me at least. I agree. I ha...

Re: plex question/concern...

I have a dedicated external HD that I never turn off or unplug to store my plex media. It works great.

Parental control lock

Could we get a basic option for a parental control lock for the player? I just want to be able to lock the whole player so the kids have no access.

Roku factory reset problem.

I just bought a Roku 3 and want to give one of my Roku 2 players to a friend. I did the factory reset and lost use of the remote control.

It restarts to the screen that asks me to choose a language, but I'm stuck because I can't use the remote control.

Help!

Re: Roku 3 not passing HDMI through Receiver to TV

I had a similar problem. Audio worked on 720p then switched to 1080p... no audio.

Unplugged cable, then replugged... problem solved. :)

I think their free selection for Prime members is similar to Netflix. Having the option to purchase newer releases is a nice feature.

The only problem I have is they don't offer subtitles like Netflix.


Amazon Prime only offers a small selection compared to Netflix.

Re: Amazon Prime- worth it?- feedback

I signed up for the 30 day trial- And I love Amazon and purchase from them- The reason I signed up for Prime was to have more selection from Netflix and Hulu + and not really concerned about getting shipping in 2 days. I have tried out the service and I noticed allot of the slections I choose (Clas...

Re: Vudu is now in the channel store

FX4 – Battleship is a blockbuster that grossed over $300mil and is a new release. The 1080p stream of this looks wonderful on Vudu. That's funny. Battleship was a huge box office flops in history. It cost $209 million to make. It needed to gross over $400 million to break even. It only grossed $65,...

Re: Rearrange Favorites on Hulu PLus???

It didn't work for me either. That's why I started this thread. It would seem like they could be re-arranged just like the Roku desktop can be.
