Re: Roku vs Fire TV

He must be in the UK if the 3 is the last device he is aware off. Of course some of us in the UK just get the latest from overseas. I have both the 4 and the ULTRA.

Re: Roll out of OS 7.5.1 to Ultra, Premiere+, and Premiere has been suspended

Don't know if this will help anyone but I found that by switching off HDR and just selecting 4K. i got rid of HDCP errors causing occasional flashing green screen and popping noises.
Hopefully the next update will resolve this but until that time I am keeping HDR off.

Re: Roku Premiere says no HDCP 2.2 and so will not connect 4K

There is only one port on that TV model that supports HDMI 2 and HDCP 2.2 unless you do the upgrade from the SEK 2500 to the SEK 3500 in which case any port will work.

Re: Premiere + Lipsync Problems persist

This problem is not unique to ROKU i have seen the same issue on Fire TV and Shield TV. All you have to do is go to any of their forums and you will find numerous threads about lip sync issues. Once you process Video and Audio separately there is going to be some level of lip sync problems and compe...

Re: Using media players...and servers.

No sure why you having trouble with Plex. I have over 20,000 music tracks, 800 movies and 1,000  tv shows on Plex and not seeing any of the problems you are. Since you cannot run a Plex server on the ROKU only the client and it is the server that handles everything you have complained about my quest...

Re: Roku Ultra: No way to power off my TV?

Using hdmi CEC mine turns the TV on with no problem but it does not turn it off. I always press the home button when i finish using the device since I find this is more likely to allow it to sleep.

Re: Roku Ultra and Premier + STILL have issues months after release

There is no holy grail when it comes to streaming devices, the Nvidia also has some problems. I switched from the Ultra to the Shield and while i like it, there are many problems  including many of the same ones with the ROKU. It has audio video sync issues, it has a remote that is a disaster. Many ...

Re: Thank you to the forum and a warning to those considering Roku

Roku would improve their relationship with their customer a great deal if the would change the update process.  Some suggestion below. 1. Release what i consider Beta software to only a limited number of users who can test and report back before a general release. 2. Give the user the ability to cho...

Re: Roku 4 a dud?

I know many people have had issues with the 4, but mine has been completely reliable. I never hear the fan, YouTube works great, and have no issues with Netflix or Amazon. I moved it to my 1080 Panasonic when I bought the Ultra for my 4K set, mainly for the HDR support. Since I don't have it connec...

Re: Ongoing problems after the 7.5.1  4095-29 update

I have been one of the lucky ones who have not seen the majority of issues reported on here. However, since the latest update I am also getting the poping sounds  and also volume level variation while using the system. The poping sounds are not specific to any application i have seen it on Amazon an...

Re: Do not buy a roku, does not work with AVR AV Receivers

Really interesting when people post such general comments about what works and what does not work and take it upon themselves to say do not buy. My Roku Ultra connects to an AVR and a 4K tv and I have no problems. In fact I recently Pre-Ordered the new Nividia Shield which is coming on Monday. Howev...

Re: BBC store purchases on iplayer?

I wish my ROKU Ultra would even connect to Iplayer and I am in the UK. The app has never been updated for the latest ROKU's because they are not officially sold in the UK.
