3800 stick and hevc

Can the 3800 handle 1080p hevc (h.265) video? I am able to get my older Premiere to play this content, but not my 3800 stick. It is instead transcoded to h.264 by my Plex server (for the 3800, but not for the Premiere). The stick has the most up to date firmware, though I'm not at home right now to quote what that is. I'm basically just curious, at the moment, as to whether it SHOULD work or not. If the 3800 doesn't support hevc, then I don't have to mess with it anymore. If, however, it should work then maybe I can get it working.

No, it does not work. I believe only 4K models of Rokus support HEVC. The 3810 (Roku Streaming Stick Plus) would.
