Roku menus have grown too large

Mon Aug 05, 2019 8:11 pm

Since Roku 9.1, Settings and Settings / System no longer fit on the screen completely and even cropped. This is rather noticeable, intimidating, and quite unpleasant. Please reconsider and redesign before you continue down that rabbit hole.

Have you tried rebooting? Sometimes the Roku menus
are glitchy.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

I am complaining about too many line items on some Roku TV menus after recent additions, not any kind of graphics glitch. It is not good when some items are off screen. A slider might work for a touch screen on a phone, but not for Roku with a slow click remote.

So the list of items in the settings screen is too many, that's what you are getting at?

The 4k Roku TV layout is such that only 12 line menu items fit on the screen, with the 12th line already cropped slightly. Settings contain 13 items + separator, Settings > System contains 12 items + separator. Therefore respectively 2 or 1 items are off screen. It is just a bad design.
