Re: Fire Stick 4k

The green screen bug was fixed a month or so ago, but there are still some hangs/crashes on interlaced content (particularly interlaced h264) which have been promised but not yet delivered.

Re: Fire Stick 4k

I have just received a call from amazon support after leaving a 1 star review on the amazon fire stick 4k. They basically just said that they are aware of the problem and will release the update when they have a fix. No timeline on when that will be. Could be soon, could be not so soon. So I am stu...

Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

Is there anywhere where navigating the Channels App is documented ?
Searching or posting on our community site is the best bet for now. We know this isn't a great experience, so documentation/guides are one of our big focus areas for 2019.

Re: Channels Apps Are Now Free for DVR Subscribers

Very surprised Channels hasn't implemented any sort of toggle last channel either. I feel they could be better in this area. I do like how Kodi shows previous watched channels in order. If you're using a remote with a play/pause button, you can double click it to switch to the last channel. I'm als...

Re: roku media player works - why no app?

All apps on Roku use the exact same player. There is only one player and decoder available.

Re: Possible to flag primarily audio channels in the EPG?

FYI, there is a bit in the MPEGTS PMT for music channels which signals that the video stream consists of still images.

See still_picture_flag in the video_stream_descriptor (H.222 2.6.2)

Re: Fire Stick 4k

In the Channels app, we have noticed an issue with the hardware decoder on the 4K Stick where it will crash after decoding video for a while. It then refuses to work at all until you reboot the device. This is a bug in the video decoder and has nothing to do with Wi-Fi or any app.

Re: roku media player works - why no app?

Too early to tell what this means for Channels. We're already strapped for resources trying to support Apple/Amazon/Google eco-systems. Even if Roku can play mpeg2, there are plenty of limitations that make it hard to implement the Channels experience we expect. 15s tune times are almost a non-start...

Re: roku media player works - why no app?

Dug out my Roku Express (3700X) and updated to 9.0 Roku Media Player can play both OTA mpeg2 and PTV h264 feeds directly off my QUATRO. Takes about 15 seconds to start playback, but then it's fine. Looks to be deinterlaced, and no framedrops. Quality looks pretty great for a cheap old roku device. H...

Re: roku media player works - why no app?

According to a contact at Roku, all non-legacy devices will support mpeg2 decoding as part of the Roku OS 9.0 release.

Re: Fire Stick 4k

We've released Channels 2.1 today which works around the buggy hardware mpeg2 decoder on the 4K stick. Thanks to everyone who emailed in sample recordings to help us debug this problem. We've opened some bug reports with Amazon and hopefully they'll be able to address the hardware decoding issues in...

Re: Fire Stick 4k

There does appear to be something funky going on with the deinterlacer on the new 4K stick. I don't have the green flashing issue here, but playing any 1080i channel (NBC, CBS) will crash the decoder after about half an hour of playback. Video freezes on screen and the underlying mediacodec decoder ...
