Re: Roku Express back button randomly returns to home screen when pushed

Well just got back from returning the new "55 TCL Roku that I got to give for a Christmas present. Good thing I left it in the box. Now looking for a Black Friday deal. Any thoughts on Google or Amazon models?

Agreed. What works for someone may not work for everyone. After hours with apple help no one has been able to figure out why I can’t get ripped cd’s in music app to phone after Catalina 8 months later it works fine for some…most. Nothing for me. Tech is frustrating by nature. Hope everyone can find a solution….  If Roku could invest in a help line with techs it’d be great

I bought a Gen 5 Apple TV box and it works awesome with all my other apps.  Got a great deal on eBay on it as well.  

I can’t speak on Google, or Amazon stuff as I have never bought any but, Apple subscription is very reasonable 4.99 a month or 50.00 a year.

I trust your input - so tell me, if I purchased an appletv streaming box or firestick, would any of those work on a Roku tv, thus bypassing using the apps through roku tv? (Until roku tv starts actually updating/working properly? Without purchasing a new tv)

Well, if you solved the problem months ago by buying an Apple TV, why are you still here?  It looks like you're the troll.  I'm here to help those with Roku streaming sticks know that the problem with the streaming sticks has been fixed and that they need to upgrade both Hulu and Roku. 

You're still here to brag about buying an Apple TV and promote #NeverRoku.  Really, we don't care!  So, my advice to you is to move on.  Go troll on the Apple TV forum.

You said:  "My pro omen was solved a few months ago."  Glad to hear that you solved your "pro omen"!

One of my TVs is a TCL Roku TV (not being used), but it has a Roku 3800 streaming stick connected to an HDMI input, which works fine.  So, I'm sure another brand of streaming stick would work fine on your Roku TV.  Just set the input to the HDMI input you're using.

I honestly am not sure.  That is a method I have not tried.  I have one Roku TV and a Roku Ultra and after doing a bunch ch of research I discovered there was not going to be much help from Roku.  My best advice is to google your question in the same way you phrased it to me.  You may find some good results that way to help give you a better answer.

I want the appletv guys help not debs - I don’t have a roku streaming stick nor do I ever plan on purchasing another roku product so I’d prefer advice from the other guy; I just want this **bleep** roku tv to work, without having to further give roku a dime of my money from here on out. So please, kindly go find another thread to help people with their sticks and flash drives, Deb.

Well, I answered your question correctly.  The HDMI input connection on your Roku TV will work with whatever you plug into it.  It doesn't have to be a Roku streaming stick. I know this from experience with a TCL Roku TV that I own.

The Apple guy wants everyone to think I'm a troll, but I'm actually much more experienced than he thinks I am.  I just don't brag about all the stuff I have or all the experience I've had with self-employment, networks, electronics, computers, and TVs in the last 45 years.
