Re: PBS on Roku

If they get this, I may sign up as a member of my local PBS station. But I think I value different shows than they do, judging by what they use for pledge drives - or at least they think the viewers value something else. I love Nova, Nature, Nova Science Now, Secrets of the Dead, really the science ...

Re: PlayON is gone!

No, the private channels are not distributed through the channel store. You do have to add them through the Roku web page, but they are not distributed through the channel store. Buying a device and then being told you can't run this or that software is like buying a car and being forbidden from dri...

Re: Mark Cuban on Content Distribution

I didn't say anything about the middle link, where he talks about Netflix and Google. In the first link where he talks about internet TV vs. cable/satellite and the third where he talks about younger people's TV habits as they get older are just plain wrong: internet TV is already subverting the cab...

Re: Mark Cuban on Content Distribution

His article claiming that the internet will not disrupt television is flawed. He engages in a sleight of hand by talking about ala carte vs. aggregators. He lumps in Netflix with the cable and satellite companies, as both are aggregators. That's true, but only in a sense. Netflix offers us a lot of ...

Re: Rumor: Hulu+ to drop to $4.95/month

People decide for themselves what is a price they are willing to pay and what isn't. That's how value is determined. I am unwilling to pay $10 a month for Hulu+. I will consider it at $4.95 a month. It's not an issue of being able to "afford" it. I can "afford" a lot of things be...

Re: composite with yellow/red/white

You should see at least one input on your TV that is yellow, red and white. Just connect these to your Roku, and try setting your TV to the correct input source. My TV has two composite inputs, so it would be a matter of trying one, then the other, in case it isn't clearly marked which one is which....

Re: Roku vs. Apple TV Article

On the other hand, one advantage that Apple has is that you can walk into a store and buy their products. "People in the know" may order a Roku, but there are a lot of people not in the know.

Re: PlayOn Private Channel (Alpha release)

I use PlayOn both on my PS3 and on my Roku. It can be unforgiving of a poor internet connection. On the PS3, sometimes playback stops and won't continue; there will just be a black screen with a pause icon in the lower left. On the Roku, sometimes it will kick back out to the menu. On neither system...

Re: PlayOn Private Channel (Alpha release)

It doesn't show up in my list of channels. I have tried entering and exiting settings and the channel store, still doesn't show up. It DOES show up when I look in the Channel Store, but I click on it, and select Go To Channel, it takes me back to my channels, but it's still not there. I will try rem...

I tried the C-Span plugins, they seem to be broken. Has anyone else gotten them to work?

Re: PlayOn Private Channel (Alpha release)

I've had PlayOn for a couple weeks now, and I'm pleased with it. I use it to view content on my PS3. Now that I can use it for the Roku, that's fantastic. I'm thinking of moving the Roku player up to the bedroom, I only have a digital converter box there. If they added a working C-Span plugin, that ...

Re: Buy now? or wait? and other questions

Sounds like a market opportunity to me. They've already shown they know how to source and market hardware. Why not just make a USB attachment that works explicitly with the Roku (linux support in kernel they run) and sell it as an addon? Then again, maybe that's what these XD models I hear about ar...

Re: Screen blanks out periodically

I switched over to component, and I haven't had this problem. It is either the HDMI cable, the HDMI out of the Roku, or the HDMI in of the TV. Since component works just fine, I will leave it at that.

Re: Netflix Streaming Coming To Canada

If the Canadians quit hoarding all that Canadian Football, they can have some Netflix. Not that I'm a huge fan of Canadian Football, but it starts earlier than American football does, and I'm jonesing for some football.
