+1 on IFTT support, or even better proper integration with Alexa/Home/whatever.

Support on all devices for 50hz to solve the awful judder on 25fps content i.e BBC productions. A simple manual switch in settings would be a good start.

Would like the option to choose 480P as my streaming quality. Mediacom has internet data limits that are draconian.  The two model years of the streaming sticks I own offer either 720P or 1080P.  The more options for streaming quality the better.

@Shawn,

I may have asked this question before, but is there a spreadsheet online or database of all of the requested feature requests and then a column of what has been implemented?
I remember that a list of bugs is not put into the public domain, but a list of requested features would be nice, so that others would not request the same feature in the future.

More as a vote: 
  • DTS-HD & TrueHD passthru
With rumors of more UV services starting to support DTS-HD streams and my Plex collection, be cool if Roku supported it. I'd be willing to buy Ultra if that's the only device that supported.

+1  
Passthrough Audio:  Atmos, DTS-X, etc...

A updated UI.  I am coming from an Apple TV3 and 4.  The UI is much better on those devices and so are the apps in usability.

I went with the Roku for Sling and HDR+Atmos

HDMI CEC and Updated UI for OS.  Nudge PS Vue on the UI while you're at it :)

Bluetooth output!

With a the music channels on the Roku, it'd be nice e to divert the sound output to a nice, loud Bluetooth speaker, or headphones.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

I would like to see a duel tuner for picture in picture or side by side picture. This would be great for sport channels or news or to watch one thing will looking for what else is on.

To make it faster and easier to find channels and to make the home page not so cluttered. I would like to have the ability to make folders that I could put channels in. For example one for music and one for movies and one for sports ect. These could either be ready made for convenience or I could label my own.
Thanks Kelly

Edit - Also I would like to lock out the 4 Jump Buttons (Netflix, Amazon, Sling, and Showtime). Because if anyone of those 4 buttons gets bumped accidentally when watching a movie. It exits the current channel and goes to one of the 4 channels. Then I have to exit the channel and then find the channel I was on and then find the movie and then start the movie and then find the place in the movie that it exited at. Then the cat steps on the remote again and it starts all over.

I would also like to have the instant replay button back. It works great in filmonTV to watch one tv show and pushing the instant replay button goes to last channel watched and back again.

1) Folders: As I have mentioned the need to build channel folders. For instance a folder that you can name and assign channels to them: Movies>Independent

2) Option to Setup folders on the channel store and then push the setup to your Roku like a software push.

I have noticed that once you have over 100 channels in your Roku and with about 40% of the screen real estate taken up by the show advertisement on the right side, it is hard to find specific channels as you have to scroll up and down to find the channel.

Question, how many channels on your Roku before you really need to start to use a SD card?

I have three Roku devices - 2 sticks and one TV. I am constantly having to activate many of the channels. I request that Roku allow the storage of my cable provider credentials with my account information, and require all channels to call a Roku API to authenticate when required rather than asking me to do it over and over.
