Option to sort apps automatically by most recent used or most viewed channels. This will help us to identify and remove channels that we don't use while giving us quick access to the channels that we do use.

Add a system option for automatic volume leveling. Some channels have their commercials volume at double the volume of the show it is interrupting.

JUST PLEASE ADD A TV MUTE BUTTON TO THE ROKU REMOTES THAT CONTROL TV VOLUME.

I OBVIOUSLY want to mute each and EVERY commercial that comes up on whatever channel or sub-channel. That is MUCH easier than lowering the volume, then raising the volume after EACH commercial.
WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU REALLY ON ROKU??

Even the giant Time-Warner Cable allowed users to over write their pre-programmed hot-link buttons on their Time-Warner Remote.

Yes, I'd very much like to overwrite the four Custom Buttons with my Choices for MY favorite Roku Channels.

Making much off those HotLinks Roku ???

Please add a subtitles/CC vertical position control and more font options... like Bold or bigger stroke ... most of the time subtitles sit on top of half the black bars and on bright images is really hard to read... i could use a black bg but it doesn't look good.

I know it's like beating a dead horse, but:

Dolby TrueHD and DTS-MA passthrough.

I have a 4k TV with a 4K Roku, Why can't I access these HD audio formats?!?

Licensing. Roku would have to pay a licensing fee for each box they sell to both Dolby and DTS. Remember that the majority of Roku users do not use an AVR for audio, but instead connect directly to a TV. Why pay a license fee for something that most people would never use?
.
That said, I too would like to have it, and I would be willing to pay extra for a codec package that could be added to my Ultra and 4 (the only players with an AVR). Sort of an optional package.

Nah, there's no need to pay a licence unless you are decoding the Dolby/DTS stream. If you're simply passing the raw audio stream through to the amp, then there is a licence fee to pay but only by the amp manufacturer as that's where the decoder sits. Why would Roku need to pay a fee to decode the stream on a decoder that has already got a licence?

If you want the roku to decode the stream and then put out analogue or PCM digital multi channel, or to transcode i.e. DD+ to DD, then there would be a licence fee to pay by Roku. A pass through is not a problem though.

Re: Feature Requests - First Quarter 2018

Don't know, but that's always been the response. To handle the DD and DTS stream in any way seems to require a license. Sounds stupid to need a license for bitstream passthough, I know. But that's the story.
