To use ARC on my KS8000 I have to turn on HDMI CEC (Samsung calls it Anynet+) and having that on caused some annoyances. I have all my equipment except xbox one plugged into the receiver and then from there out to the tv on HDMI 4. Sometimes the tv would pop up and say, "You have a new device connected to HDMI 4 do you want to set it up?" So Iturned it off and the tv is just acting like a dumb monitor now, just shows what I send to it, I don't really need to use the remote since I have a Logitech Harmony so I don't want to set up all that stuff.
Having just the Roku is nice cause all the streaming stuff is all together in one spot.
Same deal with me. I have a Sony Bravia XBR65x750d, and the TV's built in apps look much better. All apps on the Roku look darker using HDR. Its less that they look darker, and more that they seem duller. The colors don't pop like they do on the built in TV apps. The FandangoNow app also looks pretty bad for some content (The Bourne movies). I really think the FandangoNow app in particular needs to be given some special attention. All picture settings across the TV are the same, so it should all look the same.
i'v got an LG OLED and a Roku Ultra. The native LG Netflix app is simply amazing. But the Roku's picture is noticeably darker and less sharp.
I have enabled all of the settings on each component to allow for the highest definition.
I would like to see the Roku Ultra match the LG's native Netflix app in quality but it's nowhere close right now. Is it possibly an hdr10 vs. Dolby Vision issue??
