Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

Turned on my Roku this morning and my fish were gone! Replaced by cityscape. Please bring back the aquarium - it was unique and interesting and I could leave it on as background when not actively watching TV.

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

It's no longer in your list of screensavers?
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

I had the Aquarium screen saver some time back, but that was on a Roku Ultra I purchased from Walmart (model 4660 RW). My Ultra (4660) from Best Buy didn't have it. I figured it was a Walmart thing.

Yeah, I know, the official line is that the suffix means nothing more than the distribution channel. But, there were little things about the "RW" Ultra that indicated otherwise. Like the screen saver.

What device do you have?

Oh BTW, if you like the aquarium screensaver, you can buy it if the free one is no longer available.. only a buck or two if I recall.

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

Just looked at my Ultra 4640R 8.1.0 4145-29 and the aquarium screensaver has been replaced by city stroll.  Earlier this year I had an Ultra 4660R that also had the aquarium screensaver.

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

I have it installed, but the City Scroll keeps trying to take over on my Stick (3800X). Aquarium will work for a few days, then City will be on for a few days..changing it dosen't make a difference.

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

If you guys experiencing this will post the following information, I'll add it to the ticket.  Thanks!


  • Settings for screensaver (also, do you actually SEE Aquarium in your Screensaver menu);

  • Serial Number/DeviceID (settings > system > about);

  • Firmware version and build number (same area as above);

  • Approximate Date/Time first observation of behavior;

I spoke with CS tonight about it, and they're asking for this information so they can see what's going on.  I'm unable to reproduce it on my end.

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

The name of the Screensaver is "Aquatic Life". Mine reverted to the City Stroll as well, but then I manually installed the "Aquatic Life" screensaver from the Channel Store and set it as the screensaver. I have it working.

Re: Bring back the Aquarium Screen saver!

Thanks for that 411.  I had the Aquarium screensaver setup, but not Aquatic Life.  I'll add it to the bug report.

*edit 1*:  For the record, I'm unable to install Aquatic Life on my Roku 3 (4200).  Will see what happens tomorrow on my TV and Express.
