Also Netflix shows a preview of what you might want to watch as sort of an advertisement.
...- and considering the Plex UNO app runs like @$$ on my Ultra right now I'll be shopping for something newer ASAP (perhaps not a Roku - it depends). ...
What is "Plex Uno"? I run the standard Plex app on my TVs and it works great. Is this a 3rd party Plex app of some kind?
Oh, it's the fancy name Plex came up with when they came up with the 'New and Improved' app that's supposed to be the 'End All - Be All' design... going to change the industry... well, you know... Users generally dislike it, Plex is bound and determined to flood it out to every device in their Universe, but every time they release UNO onto an unsuspecting public with that month's device app update, the forum melts down, Users riot and Plex tells everybody not to fear change... just give it some time and we'll get used to it. A year later and that feeling of euphoria hasn't yet washed over me. Guess it'll take some more time. Or more Euphoria Medication 'cause the dosages I'm on now ain't working.
Seriously tho... UNO isn't that bad really in appearance. Function suffers a bit to a lot depending on how you look at it. One of the issues it does suffer from is the few little things Plex could change to score a major hit with the public, Plex feels is unnecessary due to it being perfect in every way and because Users are just road blocks to Plex's plan of World Domination.
The other reason for serious concern is that UNO on my Roku Ultra brings it to it's knees. All hope of smooth operation is right out. It chugs and spits like a Stanley Steamer turning my Top of the Line Roku into a heap of rubble. The good news is if you're annoyed by getting kicked back to Roku Home after a while that never happens with UNO. I've been inside the app for a week now. It'll never go home 'cause it can't and the Roku App Approval Process apparently doesn't check for that!
UNO is jam-packed and overloaded with forced feature fields that can't be turned off, what once took 1 or 2 clicks to do, now takes 10, On Deck has been forced down to 40 slots in an effort to regain some usability, but it still staggers every device it's come up against and Plex remains in blissful denial like the proud parents of Charles (or Marilyn) Manson.
If ur gonna try it on a Roku XS do so from within your Bomb Squad Carharts - and sit on your helmet.
