Re: New Roku Player Line UP and New Roku OS 8

Thinking of asking the dearly beloved for one of these. Do you know if the buttons on the remote are consistent or do they vary depending on what retailer is providing them.

@4268 Fixed by Roku I'm afraid, and not user-assignable, so you're stuck with Netflix, RedBull, Rakuten and Yupp.

Strange choices of buttons, understand Netflix but you would have thought Amazon would be one.

Re: New Roku Player Line UP and New Roku OS 8

@4268 Think it's a case of whoever they've partnered up with to promote (and no doubt get paid for). The last gen Rokus had the more useful (to me) selection of Netflix, YouTube and Google Play but the fourth one was rdio which went bust years ago.

Re: New Roku Player Line UP and New Roku OS 8

@Andy I guess that is fluid. I quite like the idea of one device with everything I watch rather than a couple. It might replace the smart box.

Re: New Roku Player Line UP and New Roku OS 8

@4268 I'm on the last gen but I think they are cracking little boxes and for the price that the Express is going for it's pretty much a bargain. Even the Streaming Stick+ isn't too badly priced compared to offerings from other providers. The interface isn't as polished as the competition but at least you know what you're getting having used the NOW TV boxes.  

 

I'd be surprised if you weren't happy with whichever model you went for.

@Andy, what other provider has Now, Netflix, Amazon and TVPLAYER on same device?

Re: New Roku Player Line UP and New Roku OS 8

@4268 By provider I just meant in comparison to features and tech specs of other streaming boxes out there. Don't think any other box has all four you mention, does it?

 

Unless your question was rhetorical, in which case ... exactly!

It was rhetorical.

Re: New Roku Player Line UP and New Roku OS 8

Just noticed this buried in the feature list...

 

You can now configure your Roku player for 24, 25, 30 or 60 Hz HDMI output based on your audiovisual equipment and viewing preferences.

 

Does this mean NowTV will run without jerkovision as AFAIK the content of that (and indeed the other UK catchups) is 25fps?
