is my Roku 4630X outdated?

Jump to solution

is my Roku 4630X Premiere+ outdated?  Would I gain anything by getting a newer one?

Vizio TV V436-G1 4K HDR10

Samsung UBD-K8500 4K HDR Blu player (intentionally w/o Smart Hub!)

I ONLY use the Roku for streaming and particularly using stuff on Youtube, HDR, OLED, etc, picture is OUTSTANDING!!!

HDMI cables are Monster 21Gig $15,

Audio is optical from TV to LG soundbar.

@KrisM Thanks for the question here.

I also use a 4630X myself. To answer your question, no it is not outdated. This model supports all the current channels we offer, and 4K HDR streaming, etc.

The primary advantage you may see in a newer device would be improved performance from a newer processor, additional features that are included on some newer remotes (such as personalized voice shortcut buttons on the Roku Ultra 4670), etc. But as far as that model of device, it is still very solid overall (in my opinion). Smiley Happy

 

Thanks,

yeah, thanks, however I think it best to just wait and get a 4670 or some such. I can use other remotes for vol control in the meantime... I think that's the only difference.

Great stuff, TannerD; but, what current model sold by Roku supports DD for surround sound?

All Roku players support DD audio. But the vast majority of online providers use DD+ as their audio stream for multi-channel sound. And Roku supports that as well, but whatever equipment is handling your audio (TV or AVR) has to support DD+. Not all TVs or AVRs do, so you're forced to use 2 channel audio.

Is the Roku® Enhanced Voice Remote - RC496 compatible with the Model 4630X

Jump to solution

I would like to replace the remote I use now, the RC 95, with a voice compatible remote like the RC496.   Will it work properly as I need it to?

Thanks,

Joel
