Re: Need a media server, suggestins

Belkin has a new company moto and that is that advanced features are bad. Ugh, well, Belkin owns Linksys now, so no more Linksys routers for me, then. Unfortunately I did manage to talk to level 2 tech support and he confirmed that. I wanted to set IP reservations in the router for certain devices....

Re: need help with "c" drive video files

It depends on where you get your videos also. I don't pirate so I don't use torrents. I'm ripping from DVDs so for me it's easiest just to transcode them to Sony PS3 standards which happen to work well on the Roku. h.264 mp4 (avc) file with AAC Dolby Pro Logic sound. Pirates make Baby Jesus's wounds...

Re: Need a media server, suggestins

The search continues. The media base is crap. Belkin has a new company moto and that is that advanced features are bad. Even their new routers lack some of the most basic controls. This device has no real set up. you have to visit it's IP address (good luck if you wanted to use it wireless or have o...

Re: Channel store no longer updates channels (R3)

So it's not just me. I guess Roku support needs to get their canned responses updated. If I add a channel in the store though it might update all of them, I haven't tried that but you'd think it would have to. Otherwise you'd add a channel and not be able to use it for 24 hours without manually upda...

Re: Sony 4K media player

In theory 4k TVs will drop FAST, and I mean FAST in price if people start buying them. The theory is based on the fact that it isn't any harder to make a 4k TV than it is to make a 1080. they just put 4 1080 panels together basically and used software to send the data to the correct points. Hence if...

Channel store no longer updates channels (R3)

I've noticed that people are still saying to visit the channel store to get updates. My Roku3 doesn't support that feature. Is this something they removed from the software or is my box not acting properly? Anyone else seeing this behavior?

Re: need help with "c" drive video files

Agreed with Gilgamesh. Roksbox is too tedious and cumbersome. It makes me manually enter everything and even then doesn't work right. Plex is a nightmare and also forces you to configure things that really should just be left alone. You can 1- Use Microsofts built in file sharing. I go through Media...

Re: Chaneru DLNA Beta avalable

I got a Belklin Homebase to see if that server worked better. There are no real options and it's a very simple hardware unit. It works fine to the PS3 and my computers as a Media Server but not the Chaneru channel. - the icon is a UPNP logo with a question mark in it - when I open the server I get e...

Re: Not enough HDMI Ports on TV

In your case I'd actually look at the cable box. You can get full HD with the coax output so if your box offers that switch it to coax (Antenna in) and use the HDMI for the Roku.

Re: RoKu3 remotes - will 2 of them interfere with each other

You will have extra wifi interference however since they use a full channel (as opposed to BT which uses a fraction of a channel.) Many routers will detect this and go into neighbor friendly mode. If possible I'd put one or both on a different frequency from other devices. I've been told that the in...

Re: Roku 3 and 1080i support?

Since basically 1080i is the same quality as 720p, I can see why Roku wouldn't add it. What Are 720p, 1080i and 1080p HDTV Resolutions? 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 i...

Re: Roku 3 remote losing connection after hours

There is the pervasive vudu issue with the BT remote but Vudu says it's not a BT issue but a fault in some Roku's wireless cards.

Re: Getting double audio - echo?

I had it once as well. Rebooting the TV fixed it in my case. I'm assuming you tried that though. Rebooting the TV? I'm assuming you don't just mean turning the TV on and off? Pulling the plug with it powered on, and holding the power button. It used to be that TVs retained memory unless you did tha...

Re: Need a media server, suggestins

I want the budget as low as possible because all I want it to do is be a server. The WD Hub is actually a decent price but I can't help but think would it be cheaper if they stripped Netflix and such off of it. I've considered a R-Pi. I've ordered one of these since I found an open box item on ebay ...

Re: Getting double audio - echo?

On only ONE of my TVs with Roku I'm getting an echo or double audio. I've turned off and on several audio settings on my TV to see if it will stop and it won't. This TV, while not new any more, was cutting edge, top of the line, with 1080i well before most TVs had it. It has something called Faroud...
