Roku requires information that is in the ATSC stream but may or may not be in a CableCARD stream.

If the Roku app is playing from your PRIME then great!
Ah, got it!

Well, I'll consider myself lucky then. I'm glad it's working and that I'll be able to provide some feedback.

You need a device that supports HTTP streaming, so the Dual will not work, it has to be a CONNECT or newer. We'll take a look at the device detection logic to make sure it ignores incompatible models, and make sure it's noted in the app information once it's out of beta.
Likewise here.... I have a mixed environment with old Duals, Connects and Primes. The Beta software seems to recognize all models and provides all channels along the bottom but, obviously, only tunes in the channels on the newer OTA devices even though it lists channels it cannot play along the bottom. Thanks!

Some 'Prime' channels work. Some don't. Local channel FOX35 crashes. Since I don't know whether this is a stream or actually coming from my antenna I can't ID the cause.

Seems to work... but no sound?

UPDATE: Nevermind, didn't see the note about surround. Turned that on, working fine now.

I have the app installed as well on both my Roku Express+ and my Roku TV. App opens and I can see the guide along the bottom. I select a channel and it says receiving and then cancels out all the way back to the HD HomeRun home screen. Happens on both devices. I have an old Dual, but I also have a Quatro. From what I read the Dual won't work, but the Quatro should, right?

Not working for me. Using Roku Premier. I select a show hit enter and it goes back to the main screen

Edit: Roku media player doesn't work either, says please check your connection

Audio doesn't work with my Samsung. I was hoping DVR would be added on soon. I don't need to watch live tv via network cable, coaxial cable works fine.
**Update: I got audio to work. Just had to change all the settings to dolby digital.

Thank you SiliconDust for the Roku app.

I installed the app, it displays the vidio fast, but I cannot get the audio to work.
I'll keep at it and update if I make any progress.
I have a HD Dual and an HD Connect
Running a Roku 4, a Roku model 3900X and a Roku model 3700
Disconnected the HD Homerun Dual and just testing with the Connect device.

The Roku 4 model 4400X running SW 9.1.0 will display the video but no audio.
The Roku Express model 3700X running SW 9.1.0 displays the channels but I cannot view any shows/audio.
The Roku Express model 3900X running SW 9.1.0 is working fine.

I realize this is a Beta but if my other Roku apps work with video/audio regardless of the Roku/TV devices used I will just have to hope that SiliconDust will get this to work too. I would gladly dump the Tablo I am currently using for OTA and get back to the HD Homerun tuners.

This is indeed good news but remember this?
We are making the player app available for:
Windows
Mac
Android
And if our stretch goals are met:
iOS
Kodi
We are making the storage/record engine available for:
WD My Cloud NAS products
Windows
Mac
Linux
QNAP (current/recent generations)
Synology (current/recent generations)
We are launching our solution to the following regions:
US
Canada
UK
Australia
with plans to support more of Europe over time.
Roku wasn't mentioned and while AppleTV wasn't specifically mentioned (iOS was) it was discussed many times early on that it was on the radar. How is the decision made on what to support? And when is AppleTV going to be supported?

Just reporting results with Prime and Comcast (I know Prime is not supported yet)

Some channels do tune and work fine, others do not.

This is on TCL TV with Roku built-in. I'm assuming some channels have the required metadata and others do not.

Still really excited that this is happing, will be nice to have an alternative to Plex for live TV which is WAY slower at tuning than the HDHR app.

I went to the download page yesterday to get it and it didn't appear on my Roku TV until I downloaded another unrelated program today.

Watching the US Open on the cable local channel from the Prime and the video is smooth and clear. Nice.
